Should You Hire a Broker, or For-Sale-By-Owner?

809 7th St Anacortes, WA - (360) 941-3734

Selling a home is not a simple as sticking a sign in the yard and placing an ad on Craigslist. Many For Sale by Owner (FSBO) sellers don’t realize the amount of work, expertise and time it takes to sell a home. More often than not, FSBO sellers eventually turn to a real estate agent to sell their home.

Statistically, home owners who hire a real estate agent net more money for their home than they do when selling the home themselves.

When selling your own home, you are responsible for all the marketing costs for flyers, signs, online listings and other potentially unforeseen expenses. These costs can add up to hundreds of dollars depending on how much marketing you are willing to do.

Sellers often forget that selling their own home is time consuming – and as the saying goes, “time is money.” Selling your own home requires long hours of research and marketing efforts, not to mention hiring a professional to write a contract for you to avoid any liability.

Although it is possible, in our experience, sellers who want to save the sales commission rarely do so. Most home buyers use a real estate agent. The few who don’t are bargain hunter buyers seeking FSBO homes, expecting to save money. Buying for less is their main goal and this is typically reflected in low offers.

Opportunistic speculators and investors usually offer less for a FSBO home. Without an agent to represent the owner’s interests, sellers may end up accepting an offer below the value of their home.

Real estate professionals are knowledgeable about the local market and know the highest price a home is likely to bring. A real estate professional can advise the seller on the right price for their home to get the most money.

A real estate agent has experience, expertise and a large network of personal and professional contacts with other agents with the local area and beyond. Client, agent and agency relationships will boost the marketing of your home and expose it to the largest number of potential buyers.

In contract negotiations, a real estate agent not only is trained to negotiate with your best interest in mind, but is also in a better position than an emotionally involved seller. The result will be a more profitable contract for the seller.

Showing and marketing a home is a full time job and many FSBO sellers just don’t have the time. Are you really ready to put your life on hold for showings at all hours? Do you even know if the person interested is a “real” buyer? More importantly, will you be comfortable with showing your home to anyone who knocks on your door? If you answer “no,” you might want to reconsider selling your home without an agent. It will not only be time consuming and stressful but it can also lead to a potential dangerous situation.

5 Signs You Are Ready to Sell Your Home

On the corner of Buyers Rd. and Sellers Ln

If you have considered selling your home but feel that you are not yet ready or that now may not be the time, here is a list of five signs that you are ready to sell!

You have outgrown your home – Your “must haves” when you purchased the home are no longer your current needs. Maybe you need another bedroom, a separate office space, or more privacy from your neighbors.  If your home no longer fits your lifestyle, it is time to move on.

Your commute is wearing on you – Are the roads congested or the distance is just too far to conveniently get to work? If spending less time commuting to work would be better for you and your family, searching for homes in communities that eliminate these issues may be your next step.

Home repairs have begun – If you have made repairs and adjustments to your home such as updating fixtures to revamp the space, or even eliminating clutter and unneeded items, you are likely ready to find a new place to call home.

You know where you would like to live next – You may frequent a neighborhood where you can foresee yourself living next and making plans to store or eliminate belongings.

You have already spoken with a real estate agent – An agent can give you an idea of the value of your home and what it may sell for, in addition to helping you best navigate the home buying and selling process.

Jean Groesbeck & Assoc. LLC is happy to assist with any questions you may have about the process of home buying and selling.  With listings in Anacortes, La Conner, Skagit County and neighboring islands, contact us today to schedule a showing or to set up a comparative market analysis of your home at (360) 941-3734, Jean@JeanGroesbeck.com.
