Can I Sell My Home on My Own?

Are you looking to sell your first home? Congratulations! This is an exciting time, but you know there’s a lot to do. You may be wondering how long it will take to sell your home, how much you can get for your home, and also, do you need a real estate agent to sell your home? Or you may wonder, can I sell my home on my own? 

Well, that’s what we’re going to cover in this post! It’s true, you can try to sell your home yourself, but why would you? Let a real estate professional guide you through the process of selling your home. It will save you time, headache, and money. 

What Can a Real Estate Agent Do?

So, what can a real estate agent do to help you sell your home? In short, a lot! Do you know how to price your home? How about marketing it so you get more offers? And what about tours? Will you be home to let each potential buyer in? Selling a home on your own may sound like a good idea, but there is a lot to it. The questions above don’t even get into other factors such as paperwork, contracts, home inspections, negotiations, appraisals, and so much more.

Can I sell my house on my own?

Let a real estate agent handle the sale of your home for you. Realtors are licensed professionals who know how to get your home listed and sold. 

As a sellers agent, I know what to do in order to sell your home in a short time period and for top dollar. In our initial interview we can discuss the current market trends and what your home value is worth due to homes selling in your neighborhood. Listing your home for the right price is key, and then marketing is also key! I’ll talk to you about my marketing strategy and why it’s so successful.

Once we get the home listed and have photos and marketing going, then I help my sellers with open houses, tours, and choosing the best offer and negotiations. I’ll also help through the process as we get the home inspections and appraisals in. Then I will guide you through the closing documents.

Just like with all of my clients, my relationship with my sellers doesn’t end once the home is sold. I am here to answer and help you with all of your real estate questions and needs.
