So we do a handful of loans every year that are FSBO (for sale by owner). I always help the buyers and sellers out with the paperwork & thru the whole process. I always shake my head and wonder why don’t these people just hire a Realtor. They think they are saving a buck or two in commission that’s why. The agents out there will tell you and I’ve heard it for the last 14 years I’ve been in business, statistically you sell your house for more if you hire a Real Estate Agent.
Case & Point: On a recent transaction I was involved with the house appraised 45k higher. If that seller would have used a agent to help price, market, & sell the home they would have sold it for a whole lot more. Now granted they save them selves from paying a commission, but at what price?
Looking for a good agent? Give me a call or drop me an email I’ll hook you up with a great one!
One of the biggest myths out there is that you need a bunch of money to buy a house. That’s simply not true. There are a number of No and Low down payment options for home buyers. On top of that you don’t have to be a first time home buyer to access many of those programs. During our next lunch and learn we will cover all the different options out there for buyers looking to minimize their down payment. Over the last couple years its been harder to get a lot of these types of offers accepted. However, with the market going back to a much more “normal” state it’s not nearly as hard as it was just a few short months ago. This is the perfect time for Realtors to reconnect with their past customers and get back out there looking. Come check out this lunch and learn and get a refresh course on low down payment options for buyers!
