Why hire a realtor to sell your home when you can sell it yourself?

Watch this VIDEO to hear about this family's For Sale by Owner experience.


Making the decision to sell your house is a big one - emotionally and financially. So why would you want to hire a realtor if you can sell it yourself? When I ask homeowners about this, the number one reason they tell me is that they don't want to pay the real estate commission. They want to save money. But what if I told you I can actually make you MORE MONEY than if you did a For Sale by Owner. That's right. According to the Northwest Arkansas MLS data homes listed with a realtor sold for 13-18% higher in price than those homes listed For Sale by Owner (or Non-MLS sales) in 2017.

In addition to making you more money at the closing table, I can SAVE YOU MONEY and TIME throughout the process. I take care of showcasing your home to the market. When you list with me one thing you will get is professional photography and video of your home. Pictures are everything when listing your home. We know that most people begin their search for a home online, so it's important the pictures these potential buyers see are amazing. In addition to the photos and the MLS entry, I market your house on the popular social media platforms. And lastly, I will hold your house open to the public throughout the listing period. As you might imagine, there is cost and time associated with marketing your house to buyers. I can also SAVE you TIME by making sure buyers can view your home on their schedule. What I mean by that is that when you list with me, you won't have to worry about taking time off work to open your house for buyers. 

These are just a few benefits of hiring a realtor to sell your house. Realtors are paid professionals in the real estate industry just like teachers are paid professionals in the educational field. It is my pleasure to work for you, and I hope that you will consider hiring me when you're ready to sell your house.
