Making mistakes is part of life, but here are 7 mistakes Wellington home sellers can avoid when listing their home for sale. Now that we reviewed the first seller mistake, second seller mistake, third seller mistake, forth seller mistake, fifth seller mistake and sixth seller mistake, let’s move on to the seventh:
7. Selling on your Own:
Some Wellington homeowners think they can save money selling their home by not hiring a Wellington REALTOR and paying a commission, so they go FSBO (For Sale By Owner). While this sounds easy and good in theory the reality is you might not save a dime, in fact there is a strong possibility you will lose money by going this route. Most real estate agents not only earn their commission, but typically net sellers more due to their market knowledge, marketing plan and negotiation sellers. On top of that they handle the entire transactions from start to finish, which is a full-time job in itself.
I frequently tell Wellington home sellers the easy part of selling their home is finding a buyer, the hard part is getting the transaction to the closing table. Almost every real estate transaction will encounter a problem once the buyer is in place, such as an issue with the appraisal, inspection, HOA, title, but these are issues experienced Real Estate Agents face on a regular basis and know how to resolve them or can advise you how to proceed.
