For Sale By Owner Pitfalls

Seems easy, right? Just put a sign in the yard and poof the house is sold. Unfortunately the majority of the time that an owner decides to go For Sale By Owner they end up with the property listed with a realtor. 

Trying to sell on your own can end up costing money in the long run. Time is one of the biggest factors in this process. Most sellers have a job, they cannot be available at the times that a buyer wants to look at your home. Buyers want to look at their specific time, not the sellers. What if you want to take a vacation? That takes the house off the market for an extended period. 

Sellers are not trained to prepare all of the paperwork necessary for the sale of their home and once sold, the paperwork trail is seemingly endless. It all takes time.

Most importantly, it takes time to negotiate the contract and then to work with the inspectors, the closing company, to make repairs... again time that a seller can spend doing their own job.
