  • The Drawbacks of Selling a Home For Sale By Owner

    Most people try to sell their home for sale by owner for one simple reason - saving on paying a real estate commission. Frankly, it is understandable why anyone would want to accomplish this as the commission on a home sale can be substantial. Selling a home for sale by owner, however, is certainly not easy! Many owners find out the hard way and see little success. The National Association of Realtors says that the success rate is less than ten percent. So why do so many for sale by owners fail?

    In the article below, you will see a comprehensive review of why so many for sale by owners fail. The number one reason of course, is the wrong price. The second most common reason is a lack of marketing that reaches enough buyers. Many FSBO's think a sign and putting the home in one of the popular for sale by owner websites will get it done. Fat chance most of the time.

    If you are going to be selling for sale by owner it is imperative that you get the price right. Even those owners that list their home with a real estate agent will fail if the home is not priced correctly. Unfortunately, one of the major advantages that a real estate agent offers in the multiple listing service and other top real estate websites. This is something you won't get in most circumstances unless you are working with an agent.

    There are so many other things that sellers fail to give much thought to when selling their home without an agent. These issues are all covered in depth. Click the link above for a full review. If you enjoy this article please consider sharing it socially.
