Selling your home can be a confusing process if you don’t know where to start.
In the U.S., you have two options, you can either list your own home ‘For Sale by Owner’ on different platforms, or you can hire a real estate agent to list, market and be in your corner to negotiate for you.
Other than the fact we are an amazing team, with incredible online marketing skills & relationships with others in the space, houses sold with an agent have been shown to go for much higher prices than houses sold without one.
The National Association of Realtors data shows the average home sold with an agent last year went for $280,000 while the average home sold by the owner went for $80K less at $200,000.
Agents have access to more listing and marketing materials, they know the market and are able to better price and negotiate your home, and using one can help you earn much more even when you factor in a 3% agent fee.
Let’s take a look at some quick math:
$200,000 * .97 that you keep = $194,000 is the average take home on the average FSBO deal.
$280,000 * .94 = $263,200 is the average take home on the average agent-listed deal.
The numbers above make it pretty clear that the average agent-sold home allowed the client to pocket over $69K more than those who chose to wing it on their own without an agent.
Looking forward to talking soon and helping you market, position, negotiate and sell your Columbia SC house soon!
