Why You Shouldn’t FSBO, Even In A Seller’s Market

The housing market is always changing, and even though it is currently a seller’s market, it takes an expert to know how to best navigate it. For Sale By Owner is sometimes attractive in a seller’s market, because you expect to make a profit on your home either way. However, not hiring a realtor in an effort to save money could cost you more money in the long run, because our experience and understanding of the ever-changing housing market are extremely valuable and will help you get the best possible return for your home. If you were to attempt to sell your home on your own, you could easily miss out on opportunities or make mistakes that cause you to walk away with less money.

We Know the Market

By now, you’ve probably heard that the homes are selling fast and for high prices, but recently, there have been some changes that suggest the housing market might shift back to pre-pandemic levels in the near future. Local and national trends can differ, and depending on where you are making your sale, results can vary. On Lake Norman, each community has its own target market, values, and trends. The Lake Norman Mike team knows these local markets like the backs of our hands, and we follow changes closely to know when the right opportunity strikes. We can advise you on when to sell, set the right price, market the listing, and negotiate the best offer to maximize your price tag.

We Know the Right Buyers

When you are selling a luxury or vacation home as many on Lake Norman are, lining up the right buyers can be difficult if you don’t have the resources. Unlike some other places, you have a narrower target audience, and they might not be local. The realtors at Lake Norman Mike market your home in ways you aren’t able to, through our network of buyers agents and our digital marketing channels that connect us with buyers searching for these particular homes. This is what makes us the #1 real estate team in the Lake Norman Market!

We Read (and Understand) the Fine Print

A good real estate professional is a highly trained negotiator and contract writer. We will assess all of your offers and negotiate on your behalf to find the best deal. When selling a home yourself, you may be more vulnerable to emotional appeals from buyers or lured into offers that aren’t as good as they seem. A realtor is impartial, and our feelings won’t get in the way of getting you the best deal. We will advocate for you along the way and make sure you understand all the “fine print” legal jargon that can be difficult to understand. Here is the best part: we handle all of the tedious paperwork and make sure it is done to the letter and turned in on time, so that your sale goes through properly! Doing this on your own can mean costly delays if you make a mistake, and in a fast-paced market, accuracy and efficiency is key.

You Deserve the Best!

Selling a home can be stressful enough without having to worry about these things, and if you leave them all on your plate, you could get overwhelmed very easily as the process moves on and gets more complicated. After all of that hard work, you don’t want to be left feeling like you left money on the table or regret your decision making. For a smoother, faster, and more profitable sale, contact the Lake Norman Mike & Company real estate team. We will take care of you every step of the way!
