The thought of selling your home yourself may be a little scary if you have never done it before. But the truth is... no one can sell your home like you can. No one knows all the love you have put into your house to make it that special place that someone else will want to call home. You can tell the buyers how you and your husband walk the neighborhood trails every evening after dinner, or about the great neighbors whom you will miss when you move, or stories about the fun family pool parties at the clubhouse, or the recent house hopping to sample food and wines. These are just a few things, but you get the picture. These are special things you can tell potential buyers that will help them to visualize themselves living in your home and community.
You will also have the advantage of answering all questions a buyer may have about your home. An agent would not be able to answer unique or personal questions from a buyer. An agent will only have a page or two of info about your home at his fingers, all of which can be found in a real estate flyer.
But the most important advantage to selling your home yourself is that you have the control! You never will have the feeling that your agent is neglecting you and not working hard enough to sell your home. Anyone who has worked with a realtor before knows that exact feeling... like you are just one of many houses that your agent has and that you are not important enough. And you find yourself counting down the days until your contract is up!
So in some circumstances, selling your home yourself may not be the best idea and using a Real Estate Agent would be a better choice to help you sell your home faster.
But in many cases, it just makes sense to sell your home yourself! If you decide to sell your home yourself, congratulations! You will find that there are many advantages and rewards by going this route. You don't have to re-invent the wheel though, there are many tools already available to you. Take a little time to read info from the Internet, pick up a "How to FSBO" book, and talk to friends and family members who have sold their homes FSBO to see how their FSBO experiences went.
