Does Selling Your Home Yourself Make Sense?

If you are thinking of selling your Palm Beach County or Martin County home, it is only natural to ask if you should sell your home yourself. It certainly seems like selling on your own would you make you the most money. In fact, saving the real estate commission would be nice. If you are thinking of selling your home yourself, then you would be selling as a FSBO, or For Sale By Owner.  After studying the real estate numbers of your Palm Beach County and Martin County real estate team versus homes sold by owner, it is important to really look at this issue carefully before you think about selling your home.

So why does The Treu Group sell their homes for 18% more than homeowners selling their home themselves?  There are several reasons.

First, let me say, it is not you or your ability.  A real important issue is that serious buyers are working with professional buyer's agents.  That means that buyers that have sold their home, are being relocated and have a deadline to be in there new home all are working with professional real estate agents.  A buyer can have a professional real estate agent find the home, help with negotiations, handle the financing issues, help with inspections, and assist with the closing process.  And all of this help to the buyer costs the buyer nothing.  Only 2% of all Palm Beach County and Martin County real estate transactions are done owner direct.  So why would a buyer pass up all of the free services?  To save money.  Isn't that what you are wanting to do?

Second, if you are considering selling your home yourself, is it really that easy?  Have you heard that one of the founders of a by owner company tried selling a home as a by owner?  So how do you think it went?  The property did not sell as a by owner.  In fact, the property was listed with a professional real estate agent and it sold for more.
