When selling your house, you either want a quick sale on your terms or you want to sell for top dollar with the most return on investment or you want to sell with no middleman/fees.
But what if you want all three?
The big challenge is; you can’t have all three!
There are many factors to consider when selling your house such as:
- Would you have to do renovations?
- Do you have to do showings?
- Would you need admin, listing agreement (LA) and marketing dollars?
- Do you have a ready buyer?
And much more.
Keep reading to find out how these factors affect how you choose to sell.
Selling with an agent
An agent will get you in front of as many people as possible because they have the marketing budget, skills and all the admin in place to achieve this.
You would need to do renovations and showings. You do not need to do the admin work because it’s up to the agent and their staff.
A listing agreement is a 90-day agreement where the agent has 90 days to sell your home and you’ll need this.
You do not need to worry about marketing dollars because it rests on your agent’s shoulders depending on your agreement.
You will also not have a ready buyer right away. You’ll have to go through a bunch of showings and consider quite a few offers before you find the right buyer.
If you want to sell fast or in your timeline, and for top dollar, your best option would be to go with a real estate agent.
For sale by owner – FSBO
If selling fast or on your terms isn’t your priority, but you still want top dollar with no middleman, fees and commissions, FSBO is your best bet.
For sale by owner, or FSBO, is when you sell the house yourself.
When selling the house yourself, you’ll have to take care of renovations, do the showings, take care of all the admin for this sale, which includes communicating with lawyers, dealing with the deposit and organization.
Although you will not need a listing agreement, you’ll have to put up the marketing dollars, and you won’t have a ready buyer.
Everything that the agent would do, you’d have to do and you still have to get in front of as many people as possible.
This can be time-consuming and lots of work.
