Can You Sell Your Home on Your Own?
April 24, 2017 | Kelly Fischer

If you're thinking about selling your house on your own, it's not a question of whether you can pull it off. It's a question of whether you will get the most out of your sale by going solo.

When looking to sell a house "For Sale by Owner," it's not a matter of whether people will or won’t list without an agent. People always consider selling their own houses to save some money. The real question is whether they'll get the best price for their house or even get themselves in financial or legal trouble along the way.

We know from statistics that over 95% of home sellers use a real estate agent, and there's a reason for it. In addition to getting a higher price and avoiding legal trouble, there's exposure. Most people who are qualified and ready to buy a home go to where all the homes are—actual listings via the real estate agent they're working with.

As a seller, if you're thinking of selling your own home, you have to ask yourself the right questions. I can buy hair dye and color my hair on my own, but I can't so it even close to as well as my hairdresser can. I can do my own taxes, but it would be very painful and I probably wouldn't get all the deductions I would by working with an accountant. 

I believe you should let the professionals with experience handle these complicated transactions. It's especially true when it comes to your home, your biggest financial asset. It's not that you can't sell your home on your own, but you probably can't expect to get the best outcome.
