Most people are not afraid to admit it: selling your home is a big step, and there's a lot involved.
There are many legal pitfalls involve trying the FSBO method.
That's why Realtors are here.
We' make sure the seller calls the shots, and knows exactly what's happening.
Call a listing agent first! A listing agent is an expert at marketing homes to sell on the market.
They have a Marketing plan that is designed to expose your home to the maximum amount of buyer.
Make sure the agent is a full time agent and get proof and documentation of past marketing methods, such as magazines, internet, flyers, brochures, videos est.
Make sure you are getting full exposure on the MLS and that you are with participating on IDX and Ok to advertise by co-op brokers system.
Get a Realtor that offers an electronic lock box.
I see many expired listing that fail to sell just because there was no marketing campaign on the property, some do not even have pictures, no descriptions, call agent 24 hours before showing, others you have to make an appointment at the agents convenience to show the home, some just have lawn sign; that’s sad.
There are hundreds of steps in selling a home, get a pro to do it and make sure they are technology savvy.
