The Number 1 Reason Homeowners List Their Property On Their Own Is:
To Save COmmission!
But... Do You Really Save The Commissions?
The first thing a buyer does is reduce the list price by the amount of commissions. Almost always you usually end up accepting a lower price than otherwise sold by a Realtor®.
Why Jeopardize The Most Important Financial Investment Of Your Life?
Do you realize the real liability you might be putting yourself in? A signed legal document is irrevocable and this might get anyone in big trouble if it was not completed correctly. At this point commissions seem to be much more reasonable than legal fees. Why not pass on the liability to someone else? Isn’t that worth your peace of mind? Selling your home takes a lot of hard work and know-how. Making even a small mistake can spell serious trouble.
Are You Attracting The Right Potential Buyers?
We all know that the first week to two weeks that the house is on the market you experience a good number of showings. Curious neighbours, their relatives and friends, tire kickers and window shoppers all appear to have a sudden interest in your property. This obviously gives you a false sense of comfort. As time elapses, so does the number of showings.
How Well Can You Accept Objections?
We all get emotionally attached to our homes which makes it all the harder to become objective. Rightly so, since, we have experienced many cherished memories with our loved ones. The question is; are you capable of providing objectivity in a potentially emotional situation?
How Well Is Your Marketing Plan?
Sure you can put a sign up, have an open house and place an ad in the newspaper. However, the most important marketing tool in this business is the MLS® system (Multiple Listing Service®). All the Realtors® in Dawson Creek and surrounding area access the MLS® with potentially hundreds of customers deciding whether a specific property is the right one for them.
Pricing your home correctly has a massive impact on how easily and quickly it will sell, as you can see by the above pyramid.
