Selling your home on your own may seem like a good way to save money. However, the advantage to hiring an Asheville real estate agent to sell your home is worth far more than the commission fee you will pay.
Realtors Are Not as Likely to Show “For Sale by Owner” Homes
Prospective homebuyers’ agents are not as likely to show a home for sale that does not have a professional colleague involved on the other end of the transaction. In fact, they may even discourage clients who insist on seeing the home. Many realtors have said that they will only show a FSBO home to their clients if there is nothing else to show or the home is ridiculously low priced.
The reason for this is that Asheville Real Estate agents have been burned in the past by such transactions. Perhaps the seller did not pay the commission owed, or any commission at all. Agents view FSBO sellers as unreasonable, difficult, and unrealistic.
Avoid Emotional Sales
When you are selling the home where you have spent the last several years of your life, it is an emotional process. By choosing an Asheville real estate agent, you are one step removed from the process.
This means that you will be less likely to make mistakes that could reduce your chances of getting a good price for your home, such as overpricing, showing offense to low offers, or selling too easily to meet a deadline.
