Don't Need a Realtor?

2136953043_e9d620963f_bYou can sell your home without a realtor.  People do it every day.  The real question is, how quickly can you sell your home without a realtor?  Sure, you can spruce it up, de-clutter, deep clean, and take some photos - so why NOT sell it 'For Sale By Owner'?  Selling a home is a BIG chore.  Do you have the knowledge and time required to sell your own home?  It can be quite overwhelming.  Here are just 10 tasks to consider before you leap:

Price your home to sell.

Put your home on the market.

Advertise your home.2136953861_1b91ecbba2_b

Schedule appointments to show your home.

Negotiate terms of sale.

Draft a contract.

Find a new home with wanted features.

Order title search.

Conduct final walk-throughs.

Coordinate closing with lender and title company.

This list certainly doesn't represent ALL tasks involved in selling and buying  a home.  Most of us are too busy with day to day life to take on the burden of selling and/or buying a home.  And, really, whether you have the time or not, the expert knowledge of a great realtor will simply make your life easier.
