When choosing an offer on your home, there are a few factors you should consider.  The highest dollar amount isn’t always the best deal.

Be sure that you:

1.  Understand the process.  All offers are negotiable.
2.  Set baselines.  Decide in advance what’s most important to you.
3.  Create an offer review process.  Establish a time frame for accepting multiple offers.
4.  Don’t take offers personally.  Treat the sale like a business transaction.
5.  Review every term.  Are the buyers pre-qualified?  Have they asked you to include something you were planning to take with you?

Your Realtor can walk you through all of the steps for selling your home and choosing the right offer.

Should You Hire a Real Estate Agent?

Thinking about trying to sell your house on your own?

Most For Sale By Owners wind up hiring a REALTOR to sell their homes.

Why?

One reason is that the price a REALTOR will get for a house averages about 19% more than what a home owner selling it themselves will get.  In other words, even with the cost of an agent’s commission, you’d still make more profit using a REALTOR then selling it yourself.

Also, nearly a third of all home sales come from agent to agent communications.  Who would want to shut themselves out of such a large share of the market?
