Reasons To Work With A Real Estate Agent In North New Jersey in lieu of a FSBO
Everyone likes to save money, right? You’d be crazy not to! This is why many homeowners actually decide to complete a “For Sale By Owner” on their real estate property in the Northern New Jersey Area rather than work with an agent. It does make sense, after all. If you don’t use an agent, you don’t have to pay their commissions, therefore saving yourself the money. But, are you really saving yourself money?
Many real estate agents in North New Jersey and homeowners that have attempted FSBOs will tell you that the more economical way to go is by actually listing your home on the real estate market in the Northern New Jersey Area with an agent rather than by yourself. By doing this, you are actually able to sell your home faster and at a more accurate price point than if you were to attempt a FSBO. Many homeowners that have attempted a FSBO initially overprice their homes causing them to not have any interest from prospective buyers. In turn, they are required to continue lowering the price while their home sits on the real estate market in the Northern New Jersey Area; this costs them both time and money. When you list with a realtor they are able to help you determine an accurate price point for your home as well as market your property to sell it as quickly as possible. By using marketing avenues that homeowners don’t have access to, this also allows them to sell your real estate listing in North New Jersey sooner, the more money you end up saving yourself.
