Selling Your Millburn-Short Hills Home Yourself? 5 Points to Consider!

As the New Jersey real estate market improves, a few home sellers may be tempted to try and market their homes themselves. After all, it starts looking easy to sell your home when home prices are going up and buyer demand is high!

However, there are several reasons why selling your home on your own puts you at a disadvantage. Here are 5 big reasons why!

1. Real estate professionals help prepare home buyers for the market. We provide referrals to mortgage companies and educate home buyers about sales trends. Think about the number of first-time home buyers in the market today; a sale-by-owner situation does not give them the assistance they need in order to be "ready to buy." 

2.  The multiple listing service includes a database of homes for sale that is distributed to major websites. Simply put, sale-by-owner websites do not get the same exposure, or the visitor traffic.

3.  Automated, online home value estimates are not as accurate as a professionally-prepared comparative market analysis. Only a real estate professional, with access to the very latest, local sales data, can provide accurate pricing guidance.

4. Real estate professionals are trained negotiators. Our goal is to help buyers and sellers make a deal happen. While we provide many services up front to both buyers and sellers, we are not compensated unless a transaction takes place. If you attempt to sell your home yourself, all the marketing expenses and work will fall on your shoulders from the start.

5. Real estate professionals operate under a code of ethics and standard of practices. We are licensed, and we are required to commit to ongoing education to remain on top of industry changes. We are well-prepared to deal with evolving issues that can arise in the market.
