Do you have enough time to FSBO your home?
It takes time and effort to sell a home. Your first step should be to decide how much time and effort you are willing to spend on selling your home. A home is typically your largest asset. To do things properly you’d need to understand all things that go into selling a home; legal work, title work, marketing, photos, staging, showings, finding buyers, qualifying buyers, negotiating, inspections and many other items. A qualified and well reviewed agent will save you from wasting time and money when it comes to selling your home.
Currently the typical real estate transaction in Cheyenne takes two-four months. FSBOs are longer unless the seller already knows the buyer. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) the most difficult tasks for FSBO sellers in 2016 were:
- Getting the right price
- Preparing/fixing up home for sale
- Understanding and performing paperwork
- Selling within the planned length of time
- Having enough time to devote to all aspects of the sale
We recommend that when you are ready to sell your home check out three agents online for reviews, ask friends and co-workers for recommendations and then interview each one. In the end an agent will save you time, energy and worry.
