Why a San Diego Realtor Should Sell your Home

As a homeowner, it may seem that you are the best person to sell your house because you know your house better than anyone else. Though part of that statement is true, having knowledge of your home is not what sells the house.

Why a San Diego Realtor Should Sell your Home

Some homeowners attempt a For Sale by Owner (FSBO) transaction in order to save money. A FSBO means that the homeowner does not have to pay a realtor. Unfortunately, studies show that this is not the case. The National Association of Realtors conducted a study of the 2013 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers. The statistics demonstrated that the average FSBO sale was $174,900, in comparison to a realtors average price of $215,000. There was a difference of $40,100. Hiring a professional to sell your home will help you gain a higher profit, potentially enough to cover the commission of the professional and an additional amount.

A San Diego realtor has resources and skills that the majority of homeowners do not. Here are the benefits of hiring a realtor:

1. They know the current market. A home is more likely to sell faster and at a higher price if it starts on the market at the right price. A realtor will know what price is right.

2. They are available. Unlike the homeowner, who most likely has another job other than trying to sell their home, the realtor’s main focus is selling your house. While you may be busy, the realtor can answer the questions of possible homebuyers.

3. They are more objective. A realtor brings in a new perspective of your home, being able to provide outside advice on how to improve your home for selling it.

4. They ease the buyer. Typically, a buyer prefers to look at a house without the homeowner present. Having a realtor gives the homeowner the freedom to not be present and the buyers the ability to be comfortable and picture themselves in the home.

5. They can screen the buyers. A realtor can verify that the buyers have the finances to purchase the home and are legitimate, saving time and effort.

6. They have connections. Knowing other realtors and with the help of a brokerage, a realtor can sell your home to a wider field of buyers.

7. They establish a contract. With a realtor, you are more likely to sell your home at the cost and during the time you want to.
