Some Things To Consider When Selling Your Home Without An Agent:

0204141646Pricing-The most important part!  Studies show that over-priced homes take longer to sell, sit on the market or never sell at all.   Buyers are not going to pay more than a home is worth.

The Buyers loan-Most buyers will need a mortgage, therefore it’s important that a home’s sale price be in line with a lender’s appraisal, which in turn is in line with recent closing comparables. 

Marketing-The Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service (ARMLS) provides exposure to millions of people on thousands of websites.  “For Sale By Owner” or FSBO sites do not receive the same exposure.   If you “Google” homes for sale, will the website your home is currently listed on show up?

CompetitionHow many homes are for sale in your area and are you competing against new homes or new builds?  Are you aware of recent pending and closed properties in your neighborhood?

Paperwork-The Arizona Association of Realtors contract has built in protections for both seller and buyer, plus sellers are obligated under Arizona law to disclose all known material facts about a property.   The Seller Property Disclosure Statement, which is available through a real estate agent, assists you in providing this information. If you are considering a Seller Carryback, are you aware of the new Dodd-Frank regulations pertaining to sellers?

Buyers– Real estate agents “qualify” their buyers prior to showing them homes.  Do you know the buyer touring your home or allow showings to a buyer that has not been pre-approved? 

It’s Free-Buyers partner with real estate agents because there is no charge to a buyer.  Why would a buyer go through the purchase of their highest investment without an agent if it’s free?

I sold my most recent FSBO clients home in 20 days after she spent months trying to sell it herself and she was finally able to move back east to be near her family.
