3 Benefits of Using a Realtor® Instead of for Sale By Owner, Black River Falls, Wisconsin

When the time comes to sell your home, you’ll need to decide whether to hire a Realtor® or list it for sale by owner (FSBO). Many people are choosing to enlist real estate agents due to the benefits a professional provides. From their invaluable resources to industry connections, here are a few reasons why the investment is well worth the cost.

Why Hire a Realtor to Sell Your Home?

1. Access to Industry Connections

Having the right network makes all the difference in selling a home. When you hire an established agent, you leverage their industry connections. They know service providers, such as photographers and stagers, who are willing to provide quality services at reasonable prices. These deals save you a lot of time, money, and hassle when preparing to put your house on the market. They also know agents who represent qualified buyers and will get them to look at your property.

2. Tools & Experience

realtorIt used to be that FSBO home sellers could put a “For Sale” sign in their yard and post an ad in the newspaper. However, the real estate industry is evolving. Most people search for homes online, and an agent has the latest cutting-edge tools to reach target markets. Forgoing that advantage cuts out a significant portion of your potential buyers. A professional also has experience marketing homes, handling the paperwork, and negotiating with interested parties.

3. Results

According to the National Association of Realtors, the biggest problem that FSBO sellers experience is getting the right price. In 2016, the average FSBO home sold for $190,000 compared to the average agent-assisted sale of $249,000. The difference in price is staggering; it means that sellers will likely earn more money if they hire an agent, even after paying out the commission.
