Our second installment in our “Ask the Experts” series talks about whether or not you’ll save money if you sell your own home. This is a common question many home owners ask when it comes time to sell their home.
While it may be tempting to sell your home on your own, you may find that you’ll run into speed bumps that you didn’t think would occur. Working one-on-one with an experienced agent is sure to help the process go as smoothly as possible. That’s this week’s topic, where we sit town with Jill Lewis and Antonio DeRosa to talk about why hiring an experienced agent to sell your home is better than selling your own home.
Jill talks about how a trained real estate agent’s research and experience together prove that “For Sale by Owner” homes generally don’t have as much success when compared to a home for sale represented by a real estate agent. A lot of resources are wasted without the guidance of an experienced real estate agent, who can help save you time and money by avoiding obstacles.
Antonio elaborates on how Lewith & Freeman’s agents can help you sell your home. Their agents work to provide a marketing plan tailored to your home. This includes signage, print, and digital marketing that includes social media. Lewith & Freeman’s network is designed to attract buyers, and our blog and website have proven to be excellent tools in the selling process! Agents also work with buyers, immediately exposing your home to a pool of interested buyers.
Working with a Lewith & Freeman Agent to sell your home often proves more successful than selling on your own, and oftentimes leads to selling your home for more!
