You Don't Need A Realtor To Sell Your Home
Updated: Sep 14, 2018
Q. So why do I need a Realtor when selling my home? Can't I sell it by owner?
A. You don't need a Realtor. And you don't need a doctor when you're sick and you don't need a lawyer when you're in jail. As with any other profession, Realtors offer a service but you are not required to use one. Many sellers successfully navigate the intricate maze of selling their home "by owner", and many do not. The average homeowner sells a few homes in their lifetime, Realtors sell a few homes every week. Real estate is not a commodity. It's expensive, emotional, risky, and quite frankly too important to screw up. Having an experienced, trusted Realtor assisting you is priceless. So if you do decide to venture down the by owner path, at least have a good local attorney representing you.
