Tips for Sellers
TIP #1: HIRE A QUALIFIED REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL TO SELL YOUR HOME.
One of the first questions you may ask yourself when you choose to sell your home is if you should enlist the help of a real estate agent or sell it yourself. Selling your own home is known as For Sale by Owner or FSBO.
Typically, the reason homeowners choose to FSBO is to avoid paying commission to an agent when their property sells.
But consider this: Research by HomeGain revealed that home sellers are better able to sell their home using a real estate agent than by selling on their own – by 120 percent! What’s more, the typical FSBO home sold for approximately $65,000 less than a comparable agent-assisted home sale.
Home sellers can expect to pay anywhere between 4%-10% commission, depending on the type of property, current market conditions, and the sellers motivation. Six percent is most common, and this commission is divided amongst the listing agent, the listing agent’s broker, the buyer’s agent, and the buyer’s agent’s broker. Many times referral fees and franchise fees are a factor, as well.
