The Truth About For Sale By Owner

"For Sale By Owner" — honestly, a phrase that makes most agents cringe; not because we want to list your home, but because we actually care about what we do best. Like most, I have a clear, proven system, to net you the highest amount of money possible with the best terms and protection.


What a lot of sellers seem to forget, is the legal aspect of doing everything by owner. As real estate agents, we have the tools, insurance, and protection to keep our clients' interests secure. We live in a very litigious society anymore, and it's important for any consumer to have the right representation for the best possible outcome. On that note: NO, not just any attorney practices real estate, either.


I may make it look easy, but that is because I have the experience and the resources to be effective for my clients. The paperwork, liability, scams, profit loss, and limited marketing make selling by owner a path filled with potential pitfalls at every turn. And it’s not just me; the data backs me up.


Real Honest Fact: the average "For Sale By Owner" home sells up to 17-26% LESS than agent-assisted homes.


Before you decide to sell your home yourself, give me a call. I'd love to help answer any questions you may have about the process and how you can protect yourself.
