Selling privately? Be careful

For sale 1

For sale 1I am a big believer in realtors. I think that, most of the time, they are conscientious and committed to helping their clients, and they make my job easier.

Most of the time, you will not pay upfront for a realtor’s services. You get the benefit of all of their work, and only pay at the time of the sale. You get their experience with assessing the value of your house, and with negotiations with potential buyers. You also get advice on what your obligations are, and what you have to tell potential buyers.

Not all realtors are created equal, but the good ones are more than worth their commission.
