Have you noticed all of the Robert J Fischer Team with Keller Williams Realty signs around your neighborhood?

Every day we are looking for buyers for our listings and we make it our mission to know about all of the available inventory in the area. Selling a house is difficult, full-time task. Here are 10 things that any for sale by owner (FSBO) trying to sell their house should take under consideration:
Think about it... why would a buyer that has thousands of amazing homes to look at right in front of them to take the time to look at the potential of one or two homes not in the main store? They would only do that to find a steal of a deal. Are you wanting to give your home away?
It is a fact that a good REALTOR can drive more traffic to a listing, thus causing a higher demand. The higher the demand, the higher the price.
When you hire a REALTOR, you're getting a full service marketing company with a further reach than a seller has on their own. The biggest companies know that the more exposure (i.e marketing) you have of a commodity, the more prospective buyers. More buyers create a higher demand, which increases the commodity's value and thereby causes it to sell at a higher cost. A top REALTOR has advanced marketing services, strategies, advertising tactics that FSBOs do not.
All top companies, organizations, and brand names use a 3rd party negotiator to represent them to maximize how much they profit. A 3rd party negotiator provides you with:
FSBOs can often be targets for criminal activity without a REALTOR making sure only qualified buyers are let into the house. FSBOs are not only letting in unqualified people into their homes, but people that may or may not be safe to let into your home. When a REALTOR shows your house, at least you know they are licensed with the Board of Realtors® and their finger prints are on file with the state. Most REALTORS only show homes to buyers who are prequalified to purchase and are on file. Our integrated lockbox system tracks everyone that enters the home.
Even if you aren't personally in a rush, the longer it takes to sell your home, the more time you will spend on the house, the more utilities you'll pay, and the more chances something could go wrong with the house that has to be fixed. Something could go wrong with the local housing market, making your house sell for less and the longer people see that FOR SALE sign in your front yard, the more they'll think it's not worth the asking price or that something is wrong with it.
Doesn't one of your largest financial assets deserve full-time attention, knowledge, marketing, etc.? Selling one of your most important assets is serious business. Is 'trying' to sell it yourself a wise decision or does it not make more sense to go with someone who sells over 200 homes a year? A good REALTOR will work to get your home sold all day every day, taking away some of the stress of the home selling process off your shoulders.
Do you know how many changing laws there are in real estate every day? Do you know what paperwork needs to be done to legally sell a home? What if you make one mistake? A good REALTOR can not only sell your house faster and for more money, but they can help make sure you follow the real estate law and know your rights. You need to know the laws on option check timing, T-47s, Seller's Disclosures, earnest money rules, and more.
Selling a home is a stressful process full of paperwork, negotiations, and emotional decisions. Don't you deserve to have an expert on your side to handle the day-to-day dealings of selling your home so that you can focus on the important decisions?
