Fair Deal Home Buyer, LLC
Thanks for your question. The truth is that owners who opt to sell without professional representation are to be commended for their spunk. It takes some courage to tackle a big project like selling a home.
Here are some stats to keep in mind:
Owners that are able to sell, sell to someone they know 5% of the time, someone they don't know 5% of the time, and 85% of the time list their home with an agent.
Owners that sell, sell for a price 16% less than the average price sold by Realtors.
Which makes sense when they are only dealing with 10% of the buyers. About 90% of the time the buyer will be brought by a Realtor.
So I recommend you consider this plan:
Go ahead and try to sell it yourself. If you can, great.
Interview three Realtors and compare their proposals. You make the call If you cannot sell on your own, then you have a plan B.
If you would like I would be happy to refer you to a Realtor that specializes in your area. Just contact me via my Trulia profile.
As Donna stated, there are a lot of things you have to put up with when selling on your own--people who are "just looking" and not actually qualified to make a purchase. Odd appts times intruding on your personal life and having to be there for all showings. Using a Realtor screens people coming in before hand and allows you to have a more normal life because we can show it while you are away as well.
As for a lawyer I trust, contact me at email address and I will give you a reference of a firm I use for most of my closings.
Even if you choose not to list talk to a professional to make sure your price is reasonable, most agents will do an analysis at no cost.
There are houses selling in your area. But you have to be aware of the Real Estate market and have your house priced accordingly. As for selling your home as a FSBO, are you prepared to be home for every phone call, for appointments to see your home, you wait and cancel your plans for the day and they don't show up. For the low bidders, who feel you don't know what you are doing. And for complete strangers to be coming to your house and you have not verified any information about them. When you work with a Realtor they are the ones showing the house, verify all the information making sure they are preapproved and can afford your house and for most agents they verify and make copies of there ID's before taking them out to look at houses
Re: attorney - my question is does anyone have any good real estate attorney(s) that they would recommend to me as a seller. Many thanks for taking the time to read this.
I am confused.
Homes selling in Orange County, I think I'd talk with a Realtor that works in that market. If you want specifics on selling your home, then you definitely need to talk with a Realtor so they can assess your property, the market, and your situation.
Attorneys that I can recommend? In Middletown? I would ask that Realtor I mentioned. Attorneys generally specialize, so if you really are asking for an attorney, I would specify the type of issue you need assistance.
