Selling your home on your own, especially in a hot market, might seem like a great way to save some money. At the end of the day, the couple/few percent of your total sales price that you “save” really does cost you and adds stress to the process of selling your home you could have avoided. When it comes down to it, FSBO properties just get lower and fewer offers resulting in a lower sales price.
Not to mention the expertise in negotiations and contracts that a Realtor brings to the table and those are often hard to put a dollar value on. My advice – don’t mess around with what is likely your biggest investment. Hire a professional and walk away with more money. Now that is a win-win!
