Do you need a realtor nowadays? Yes, no. Yes, you can absolutely sell your house yourself, no, it’s not as easy as you think, but if you decide to take that route, I’ll describe how to do it below.You no longer need to hire an agent, in fact you could do better with many agents yourself. A good real estate agent will be able to negotiate, a community expert, a great marketer and extremely knowledgeable in all standard contracts and forms of government.
Similarly, most home sellers expect the highest home price they sell; and the price of a home with the commission of the real estate agent subtracted is often more attractive than the price of the home, including the commission. Based on this understanding, the owner of the house derives a benefit by offering the property for sale at a reduced commission-less price.
Direct negotiations with buyer
Home sellers who prefer to negotiate directly with their prospective buyers are fully in control of the out come produced by these negotiations and accept responsibility for this. The benefit derived from direct negotiations are, however, aware of each stage of the transaction involving their homes instead of waiting for an agent to update their status, who is simultaneously dealing with several homes – and the buyers of those homes – involved with just as many transactions.
Pressure-free marketing & selling
Home sellers who have not committed themselves to a real estate agent- verbally or in writing by way of an exclusive listing- are not under any obligation to “show the property for reasonable hours” as many who have listed with agents have agreed to do, so that they do not leave themselves open to claims that can be worrisome of “refusal to show,” “uncooperative” or “taking the house of the market”. The absence of such pressure during the marketing and sale of a house is the condition under which fsbo sellers regard it as beneficial.
