I’m selling my home “For Sale by Owner” why do you
keep calling? That is the question I get most often when I
call someone who is
trying to sell their home on their own. But, let me tell you a little
there are three types of agents that will be calling. Ones that tell
front why they are calling and others that will also be honest, but are
to get to the real goal in another way, and the third who isn’t
your listing at all, but if they get it, they get it.
The first kind of agent will call you and ask if you are ready to list with an agent today. They are trying to call you until you finally just give up and they hope they are the ones on the phone when you do and they hope to get your listing. The second is the agent that wants to help you find buyers for your home in the hope that they will get a long list of people that don’t want your home, but will use them as their buyer’s agent. (Then when you can’t sell it, they hope you list with them because they weren’t pushy.) Then the third type of agent that calls is because they really do have buyers looking in the neighborhood that your home is and they just want a chance to show the home so they can make their buyer clients happy because they went out of their way to find the perfect home for them. (This type of agent really does just want to help their buyer, but if and when you do decide to go with an agent, they aren’t going to turn down your listing.)
I have to say I’m a mix between two and three. If I have a real buyer, I will tell you and hope that you will let me get the chance to show your home to my buyers and then agree to pay me for my services. Then if I don’t have a buyer, I really do want to help you find a buyer for your home at no cost to you. My goal here is to do just a little marketing on your home in the hopes to pick up the buyers that are interested in your type of home, just not your home. (If you have someone interested in your home, I certainly won’t try to talk them out of it. I will encourage them to buy it.)
If you are a FSBO “For Sale by Owner” seller, then I applaud you for taking on something so large as selling the largest investment of your life on your own, but if you should decide that It is too much and want an experienced agent to help you sell your home, then don’t hesitate to call me.
