Why Would I Use A Realtor? This is one statement I hear quite often when visiting with
For Sale By Owners (FSBO). Many times the owner has listed with a Realtor in the past and ended up frustrated because they never sold the home nor had many if any showings!

In every instance they blamed the Realtor and felt the Realtor did not do enough to market the home. My first two questions to that owner is;

How was the listing price for your home established?
  1. How was the listing price for your home established?
  2. Did you receive a Comparable Market Analysis for your home
For Sale By Owner!  Why Use A Professional Realtor?  By using A Realtor your home will be shown even if you are;
  • At work, On Vacation, Gone for the Weekend, At your kids or grandchildren events
  • By using a Realtor your home will be listed on several internet real estate websites
  • By using a Realtor your home will be listed on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
  • A Realtor will make sure they are bringing potential buyers who have been pre-approved and can actually purchase your home
  • A Realtor will develop a marketing plan for your home or property utilizing the latest technology.
  • A Realtor will provide you a Comparable Market Analysis for your home
These are just some of the professional services provided by Realtors
