“How will consulting a real estate broker benefit me?”
Trusting a broker will ensure that you don’t lose money in scams; such as fraudulent papers, purchases thru a third party, and foreign buyer deposits. For-sale-by-owner scams happen to both sellers and buyers, leaving the victim with little recourse but to hire an attorney.
Real estate agents are experts not only in the real estate process, but in market value of property, understanding property reports, and advertising correctly to reach the widest audience. Due to these facts, FSBO properties lost about 16% of the sales price on the median selling price of $210,000 in 2015. In addition, 18% of FSBOs were unable to sell within their chosen time period.
