That’s right, It may cost nothing to have a Realtor sell your home.
Okay – I think I’ve got your attention. Right now you’re thinking that I’m nuts. After all, no Realtor will list and sell a home for nothing.
You are correct! I’m not aware of any Realtor who will do that. So you should be thinking that I’m a lying weasel, right?
Well I’m not a lying weasel. And yes – I will charge you to sell your home. However, my service may cost you nothing. And you’ll probably walk away with more than if you sell the home on your own.
Do I still have your attention?
Here’s the Explanation
While hiring a Realtor will incur commissions that will be due at the closing, here’s why it won’t cost you to use a Realtor.
You’ll have exposure to more buyers. Over 90% of all buyers use a Realtor, many of the remaining sales are between family members. Selling without a Realtor limits you to a fraction of the available buyers. And since those buyers know that you’re not paying a Realtor’s commission, they’ll deduct it from whatever offer they may make.
The average person buys 3- 5 homes in their lifetime. A busy Realtor sells 20, 30 or more homes per year. Who do you think has more experience in negotiating a sale or purchase?
A Realtor will provide an extra layer of protection from legal liabilities.
Additionally, a Realtor can guide you through the process, avoiding potential pitfalls.
A Realtor will provide a layer of safety by qualifying buyers and not bringing in just anybody who wants to look inside your home.
It’s a proven fact that, year after year, a home sold through a Realtor sells for significantly more than a home sold by the owner. And it sells for enough to pay the Realtor commission plus more in your pocket. In fact, the median price of a home sold with a Realtor’s assistance sells for 14% more than a home sold by the owner! Let’s see, is 14% more than the typical Realtor’s commission?
So – now do you see where it may cost nothing to hire a Realtor to sell your home?
