According to a recent survey, most people who have sold their homes on their own wouldn’t do it again. They say difficulties with setting the price, doing the marketing and doing the paperwork as their primary reasons. Once they have decided that they will not sell their current house on their own their best bet is to contact a good realtor.
A realtor has access to the latest data to be used in setting the price and has the marketing plans are already in place. And it exposes the property to more than just a few buyers. We also expose the property to all of the realtors in the multiple listing system. This results in a median home sale price which is 14% higher than if someone sells it on their own.
