Statistically, Realtors sell homes for more money in less time than a FSBO (For Sale By Owner). How much more? Well, my agency's average sale price to list price is 98% and we sell homes in an average of 78 days. That's very quick considering we have the least days on the market of ALL the agencies in the Dayton area. It is reported that the average home sold by owner sells for 90% of asking price. If those home owners hired a Realtor and paid a 7% commission then they would still pocket 1 - 3% more money versus selling it on their own. The reason? The garage sale effect. Let's say you go to a garage sale, see a brand new chair that you know retails for $100 and they are selling it for $70. What's the first thing you do? Ask if they'll take $60! It's the whole purpose behind garage sale shopping - to find a bargain. It's that very same reason people shop FSBOs - to get a bargain. I am so confident that I will do a better job than those trying to sell their home on their own that I offer 2 unique guarantees. I tell all my clients, if you aren't happy with my services then I will cancel our agreement, no questions asked. I have never had to do so, but I will. I also offer a Sale Guarantee Plan. If I don't sell your home in 90 days then I reduce my commission to 3%. Why would you go through the hassle of selling your home on your own?
