Sale by Owner

If you are thinking of putting your home on the market yourself, here is something to think about -
It takes time and effort to sell a home and you will be responsible for everything such as setting the right price, advertising , being available to let interested buyers go through your home, reviewing the complex offer documents, doing your own negotiations and paperwork.  Do you have the extensive knowledge and expertise to handle this transaction.  Do you realize that even if you don't use a Real Estate Salesperson, you may still end up paying commission to the Buyer's representative?  That is because normally in a Sale, the commission for both representatives is paid by the Seller.    If you don't  the buyer would have to pay their agent and would probably see that as a disincentive to purchase your home.  There are many  more benefits to working with a licensed Representative!
