For Sale By Owner Representation
By selling your home without the help of a real estate agent you may be able to save the 6% commission typically paid to agents on a home sale. On a $250,000 home, that represents a potential savings of over $12,000. Or you can use those savings to offer your home for sale at a lower price, which may help you attract a larger pool of interested buyers and sell your home more quickly.
When selling a home by owner, you don’t have to leave the house because a real estate agent wants to show it, or clean it every morning before leaving “just in case”. You know when potential home buyers are coming, and can therefore prepare accordingly. And when a home buyer makes an offer, there’s not all that frustrating back-and-forth telephone tag between real estate agents to reach an agreement. It can be done in minutes, and end with a friendly handshake and smile between the buyer and seller.
In most real estate markets a title company can handle every aspect of a real estate transaction. However, many customers hire a real estate attorney to protect their interests throughout the real estate transaction. A lawyer can act as an escrow agent for down payments, evaluate any complicated offers from potential buyers, and handle closings.
