For Sale by Owner Rockford Illinois

Selling your own home (FSBO) is not for everyone. FSBO is especially not for those you have little time and knowlege about selling real estate. Unless you are willing to spend a lot of time and energy just researching and understanding the real estate industry and your local real estate market you will come across many pitfalls in your attempt. Generally FSBO homes are sold for less then the market value or don't get sold at all due to poor marketing and pricing too high. This is why many sellers choose to go with a real estate agent. Since the agents already have knowledge of the market and have selling real estate experience to help get the most exposure and highest price for your home.

When it comes to selling your own property, think of it as taking on a part-time job for a period of time. If you don't have the ability to spare the time just to gather the upfront information, that maybe an indication that you are in need of a full-service real estate agent to help consult with. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR)m approx. 80 percent of for sale by owner sellers end up choosing an agent within the first 6-8 weeks.
