Should I sell my house by myself or should I use a Realtor?
This is a very common question that I come across in my Real Estate business.

Homeowners that need to sell their house sometimes think that they can save money by selling their house on their own as a For Sale By Owner. They figure that they’re saving money on the Real Estate Broker’s commission. Although that may true, selling a house is more than just placing a FSBO sign in the front yard & hoping that a buyer will call you.

A professional Real Estate Agent can help the Homeowner determine the correct selling price of the house specific to the neighborhood. A Comparative Market Analysis, CMA will be provided by the Realtor that will include all the similar properties that have sold in the neighborhood for the last six months. And also include similar current properties for sale in the neighborhood. Based on this information, the Realtor will suggest the appropriate selling price of the house.

Once the property is listed with a Real Estate Broker, it will automatically be listed in the Multiple Listing Service, MLS. Buyers and Agents searching for houses in Houston and the surrounding area have access to all the properties in the MLS. By listing the property in the MLS, the Seller is in a better position to sell their house. Then the listing property is also downloaded to all the different Real Estate search engines, like Google, MSN & Yahoo, including Keller Williams Realty. Selling your house should not be a stressful event. A Realtor can help you make the sale of your home a smooth & profitable transaction.
