Your home is your castle. The benefits of selling should be all yours.
SAVE $$. YOUR MONEY STAYS IN YOUR POCKET: Paying a realtor will cost an average of 6% of the selling price. On a $200,000 home this can be as much a $12,000!
YOU CAN "SELL" YOUR HOME BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE: You know your home best. The schools, the neighborhood, as well as other details about the property. Don't rely on someone else with several other customers to remember all the wonderful things a buyer should know. A well-maintained, fairly priced home virtually sells itself; your role is simply to provide additional information.
YOU'RE IN CONTROL: No more contracts… You make your own rules. You can advertise where and how you want to (not sit by in frustration because "they're not doing enough").
CONVENIENT: You decide when prospective buyers visit your home. When an agent shows your home, they set appointments according to their schedule, and often don't want you around. You don't have to leave the house because an agent wants to show it, or clean it every morning before leaving "just in case".
YOU CAN SELL FASTER: You set the price to meet the market. You don't have to worry about inflating the price of your home to cover a realtor's fee.
CERTAINTY: Because you meet the prospective buyers, you have a much better idea how interested people are. You gauge first hand what they like about the home, how serious they are about buying and what their timeframe is. And when a buyer makes an offer, there's not all that frustrating back-and-forth telephone tag between agents to reach an agreement. It can be done in minutes, and end with a friendly handshake and smile between owner & buyer.
