1. Marketing your home online isn't as easy as you think
Using an agent automatically offers widespread exposure for your listing through the multiple listing service.
2. Homes for sale by owner could be priced wrong
A real estate agent will provide an accurate home value based on a comprehensive market analysis to get the right listing price.
3. You could under/over estimate how much money to spend on curb appeal
4. Showings are a drag
FSBO sellers don't realize how draining it can be to set up showings. Agents will handle all aspects of scheduling the showings and can weed out the unsuitable buyers/offers.
5. Preparing your own paperwork can be tricky
Leave the paperwork to the pros! Your agent will take care of all the contract, addendums and any corresponding documents to avoid any future liability.
