Disadvantages of selling by yourself (PT16)

Here are the top 2 disadvantages of selling your house by yourself

Little to no exposure…

Do you want to sell your house quickly? Do you want to get it seen by as many potential buyers as possible? More importantly, do you want prequalified or preapproved buyers? You also want the highest and the best price, correct?
Now if your answer was yes to all of the above, then trying to sell your home by yourself may not be the best idea unless you have a very large audience looking specifically to purchase property.

Good Real Estate companies come to the table with a lot of information about what similar properties have sold for (not what your neighbors story about selling for 50 million but the actual sale price was 25). If less people see your property, then chances are you won’t get that many offers, it may sit longer on the market and you won’t have that bidding war that sellers like.

No knowledge of what is happening in the market…

The beauty about using a good real estate company is they should be able to tell you what is going on in the market. Sometimes, apartments move faster than houses or people are looking for more land. So you don’t want to place your property on the market at a time when people are not actively looking for that kind of product. That’s not information you will find in the newspaper; that’s information you will find using a good power realtor!

Your power realtor will also be ale to tell you what improvements you could make to your property to make top dollar. At the end of the day you want the highest and the best price offer for your property, right? It is always good to do your research and find a power realtor or brokerage that comes with a sizable sphere of influence and a large database of people who are pre-approved and pre-qualified. You don’t want to be in a position of starting and stopping your process and if you are trying to sell right away, you need that extra help.
