Listing your house with an agent
The amount of time, money, and stress involved with listing your house adds up.
✔ The months it takes to sell add up
Your home is costing you money the entire time it sits on the market. Some people just can’t wait 90 days to sell their house.
✔ Plenty of showings and disruption to your life
Not only do you have to get your house ready to show, but the number of showings can provide a serious disruption to your life.
✔ It takes forever to close
It takes anywhere from 30 to 60 days to close after accepting a buyer’s offer. That’s assuming that their financing doesn’t fall through…
✔ 1-2% in closing costs paid by you, the seller
On average, a seller is responsible for up to 2% of the sales price in the form of closing costs.
✔ Fees and commissions stack up
In addition to closing costs, commissions and fees stack up and reduce how much goes in your pocket at close. On average, 6% in commissions/fees are paid by a seller.
✔ You could be on the hook for repairs
Depending on what pops up during the inspection period, you could be on the hook for repairs that you didn’t know you needed.
