Buying / Selling a home should be something you always remember.
Buying / Selling: sometimes it turns into a roller coaster ride that you can’t wait to get off of.
When you’re buying and selling real estate by yourself, or without a Realtor, you probably feel like you’re doing an excellent job. Chances are you’re using all the information at your fingertips whether that means searching homes for sale online or putting that for sale by owner sign in your yard! Either way, you are 100% committed to saving on the commissions you would normally have to pay to a realtor. In most cases an experienced Realtor will save you more money than you’ll save by not paying a commission.
When you eventually find a home, or sell yours, without an Agent you’ll have that ‘look, I did it all by myself’ feeling. It’s admirable, and then it hits you… what contract do I use? What paperwork is there? Once I go under contract what happens next? Are the negotiations in my favor? What are the legal ramifications if I fill out paperwork incorrectly? Who do I send this to? What’s next? How do I prepare for inspections? What’s loan commitment?
Keep in mind in most cases you could’ve saved more money by hiring a Realtor to buy and sell your home.
Does Experience Matter? Would you trust a Realtor to do your job?… I wouldn’t. Experience does matter!
How will you advertise your home? What should you remove from your home or add? How do you accurately determine pricing?
