Selling Highlands Real Estate, FSBO Not Always As Easy As It Sounds

When selling Highlands real estate remember that FSBO is not always as easy as it sounds.  The acronym stands for “For Sale By Owner” and seems like a great way to maximize your profit when selling your home.  The thing to remember is that this is not always the case.  One interesting example is the tale of the founder of ForSaleByOwner.com and his experience selling his home.

The founder of ForSaleByOwner.com tried to sell his condo by using all of the resources that his site provides.  After 6 months his condo still had not sold.  What did he do?  You guessed it.  He hired a REALTOR®.  The REALTOR® suggested that he raise the price of the condo by $150,000.  The condo sold within weeks.

The reality is that a REALTOR® does to always mean you lose money, it often means you make more and sell your home faster.  An experienced Highlands REALTOR® will use her experience to help you prepare your home for sale, recommend a price that the market demands, market your home and follow through on the contract process.  Contact us today to learn more about selling Highlands real estate and let our knowledge and experience work to your advantage.
