Hello, my name is Dallas Hill, I am an Agent with Silvercreek Realty Group. I am based out of Ashton, Idaho and I have a great love for this area. Today I want to share my advice with you on selleing your home yourself. This is what you need to know regarding the risks and liabiliteis; and how to avoid it.
Your property represents not only monetary but often sentimental value. Deciding to relinquish ownership demands compensation and logical problem solving. I hope that this information will help you achieve peace of mind as you move forward. After deciding to sell your property, you must consider rather using a real estate agent is right for you. If you sell without an agent, you are taking sole responsibility for pricing your parcel accurately, being available to show it, analyzing offers, drafting counter offers, submitting all legal requirements, transferring ownership, and hoping you are protected in the event of a lawsuit. Hiring an Agent ensures these tasks are handled with professionalism and peace of mind.
Did you know choosing not to hire an agent also limits the number of buyers who will consider your property? That means you could miss out on finding the buyer who will pay top dollar! Some agents avoid taking buyers to homes For Sale By Owner (FSBO) even if your home is the right price and fit for the client because they don’t want the hassle of doing twice the work without guarantee of compensation. When you list your home with an agent, they place your home on a shared database called the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). This increases the quantity of buyers seeing your property, and also gains the support of every other agent in the marketplace. By not listing your house, you are missing out on a lot of lookers!
You should also be warned about working with a buyer who has an agent. You might think great, we can both use this industry professional for the same low cost, but this is dangerous. Any agent representing the buyer is legally obligated to do everything they can to look out for the buyer’s best interest, not yours. They may talk you down from a good price or tell you to make repairs you may not need to make. They are not looking out for you they are trying to help the buyer. Please call me today if you are in this situation for immediate support.
When you combine all the liabilities that come from selling on your own with all the benefits to having an agent, its easy to see why hiring a Realtor® is the best way to sell property. While having an agent is a great benefit, having the right agent ranks above all else. I have set out to be the right agent by exhibiting the characteristics you value most. As you might have experienced, not all agents are the same. Other agents work with property, I focus on helping people. My work ethic, integrity, demeanor, and background contribute greatly to my success in this effort. Unlike large real estate teams, I work independently with each of my clients delivering individualized attention and care. Along with being honest, hardworking, reliable, and trustworthy, I understand how important it is to maximize your earnings. When I meet with clients, we look at these costs upfront and discus ways we can maximize profits based on current market data, thus giving you full control over the process.
If you still think selling your property is the right choice for you, I also offer another option to help you sell your home that does not include the expense of listing your home. This plan allows you to obtain the protective benefits and advocacy of an agent while being able to sell the home on your own at less than ½ the cost. I call it my FSBO plan. In my FSBO plan, I will show you the latest market trends and values to help you price your property, let you use your own means to market, show and sell your home, then when the offers come in, I will help you discern which ones are the best, draft counter offers, and submit all closing documents at a 2.5% brokerage fee. Contact me today so you can receive the support you deserve at a price you can afford.
Thank you for your time. I am Dallas Hill with Silvercreek Realty Group and helping people is my passion.
