A lot of people think because it’s a hot real estate market that they can just list their home and get it sold.
And occasionally you can do that but I would say statistically, the odds are stacked against you. And I would say on average, you’re probably going to be taking less for your property.
On top of that, when you don’t use a real estate agent and you start dealing directly with the owner of the property, there can be miscommunications and expectations that are missed and things don’t get done the right way.
So my advice is use a real estate agent. You need to connect with a good agent, and you need to figure out their process because I can tell you this, if you use the process that we use in getting your home listed, like getting your home cleaned out and decluttered, allowing our professional home stager to make your home look amazing, perform a few minor upgrades, get amazing photos, a video, and then put the home into multiple listing service and multiple listing service syndicates, you have fully exposed to the market. And so typically when you’re for selling it by owner, you’re typically not fully exposed to the market, and you probably haven’t done a lot of the things that I just talked about which is a 100% guarantee for success when you do a listing the way that we do a listing at Grand Real Estate Investments. We help a homeowner walk through that process and guarantee that we will get you more money for your home.
