Selling – listing my home , townhouse or condo here in St. Petersburg, Treasure Island, Madeira beach or Seminole?
I just got a new listing here in Treasure Island and once again I realized that a lot of people are lost when it comes to the process of buying or selling their home.
Since I am a Realtor and I do this on a daily base, it is the most normal thing to me, but buyers as well as sellers only do a transaction like this once or twice in their lives and of course they are lost. So, I decided to write a few post about the buying and selling process. This way you can get familiar with all the things that are involved and you can prepare yourself.
As an owner of property, once you have made your decision to sell, you need to figure out the best possible way to do this.
And that were the trouble already starts.
Do you want to hire a Real Estate agent
or do you want to try to sell it yourself
or do you want to sign up with a discount brokerage?
Well all these are valid options and you need to find the one that is right for you.
Going with a realtor is probably the easiest and safest way.
FSBO, well I really think that selling your house or condo is an important transaction and it should not be taken lightly, so, if you have any doubts that you might not be able to deal with all the paperwork or the advertising involved or the negotiations, than I would not try to attempt this myself. You have too much at stake and you will need the help of a professional.
Discount brokerage, I can only advice you to make sure that you understand exactly what they offer and what they will do for you.
Please read my next posts where I give you Pros and Cons for all the options you have.
