Agent or No Agent???
Some homeowners decide to sell their homes themselves in order to
save the commission charged by the real estate agent. The commission
rate may vary depending on where you live or what agency you choose,
but it is generally upwards of 5%.
However, handling your own sale means you will
be responsible for placing ads, answering phones and showing your
home to strangers. What's more, buyers who know you are saving on
the agent’s commission may offer less for your home, wiping
out the financial incentive to do it all yourself.
When considering selling your home yourself, you should realize
that real estate agents probably know a lot more about the business
of selling homes than you do.
