How to Prepare to be Your Own Agent
You don't need an agent to sell your home!
It's true. You don't! You can totally sell your home by owner.
Just keep in mind these tasks you will have to complete in order to maximize your home's value:
Know how to write a legally binding real estate contract.
Prepare a budget for professional photography and comprehensive marketing.
Complete a thorough assess of the market value of your home and then price it so as to attract buyers but not leave money on the table.
Find a third party to negotiate on your behalf or be prepared to do it directly with the buyer.
Check with your boss about leaving work for showings (and arranging that schedule as well).
Figure out how to prepare your home for photos and showings.
Learn how to qualify potential buyers.
Learn all the processes necessary to complete the real estate transaction and close the deal.
We have seen many homeowners leave money on the table by selling without an agent. Agents sell homes for around 26% MORE than FSBO -- completely covering those agent commissions that so many well-intentioned sellers try to avoid.
