If you are looking to sell your home you may be tempted to sell it yourself, as For Sale By Owner. Chances are that you know someone who has successfully sold their home, or maybe you have even sold your own house in the past. Everyone’s primary reason for trying to sell their own home is of course to avoid paying thousands in commissions to a Realtor. However, there are many reasons to enlist the help of a Realtor in the sale of your home, especially in today’s market.


The National Association of Realtors states that in only 14% of for sale by owners were able to sell their home on their own. Close to 80% of For Sale By Owner (also called FSBO's) end up using a Realtor to sell their home. This statistic says a lot for people who may be thinking of trying to sell their home on their own. Ask yourself why so many people that attempt to sell their home by themselves eventually end up listing with a Realtor. Not only does a Realtor specialize in selling and listing homes but they are educated in this field as well to make sure you are getting a good value for your home. If a consumer tried to sell their home on their own, not only do they have the possibility of listing your home for months without any serious interest, but you may under-price your home and lose thousands of dollars as well. The longer your home sits on the market the more money that you continue to put into your home and apply towards interest that you will not get back out of it. Using a Realtor to sell your home is a very smart decision and if you decide to try selling your home on your own just make sure that you apply a lot of time and effort to it.
