Why Use An Agent to Sell Your Home – Time

For Sale By Owner blog RE/MAX Capitol Properties

Do you have enough time and desire 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 homes for sale in Cheyenne are going under contract within days if not hours. This makes it seems easy and makes sellers question the value of using a realtor. Where we are seeing transactions fall apart are in the negotiation process for repairs and appraisals. An experienced, trustworthy agent will guide you through this entire process.

FSBOs are typically for sale longer than homes listed with a real estate agent unless the seller already knows the buyer. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) the most difficult tasks for FSBO sellers are:

  • Setting 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 you interview three agents. Check online reviews, ask friends and co-workers for recommendations and then ask each one questions about their complete listing program, marketing strategies, results and experience. In the end an agent will save you time, energy and worry. Call today to schedule an appointment with one of our RE/MAX Capitol Properties agents at 307-635-0303.
