Calgary Real Estate - Selling For Sale By Owner
Many people don't realize that selling a home in Calgary is a complicated, time-consuming process. With numerous factors to consider such as open houses, advertising, pricing, negotiating and handling the numerous kinds of inquiries, it can be very exhausting and even worse - unfruitful. Many homeowners report the familiar grief after an open house: "I got lots of people, but most were just looking." "They wanted it for a song."
You may be thinking, “why would I need a Calgary Real Estate Professional to sell my home?” Let me give you just a few of the key reasons why a For Sale By Owners needs my help:
Without working day in and day out in the Calgary real estate market it is quite unlikely that a FSBO will have complete understanding about pricing. Often a seller is forced to reduce the price and may have to accept less money for the home than the seller would have received had he/she started at the right price. When I go to work with you I like to ensure you will receive the most current Calgary real estate market stats along with a thorough market analysis report to GUARANTEE your home is in a solid market position. My goal is to sell your home FAST and for TOP DOLLAR.
A property depreciates the longer it is on the market. Many owners fail to take advantage of this excitement by limiting the market to their immediate contacts and advertising. I ensure your home is advertised 24 hours a day until it is sold. My Calgary Home Selling System is constantly being tested and improved to ensure your Calgary home is exposed to the largest pool of QUALIFIED buyers.
The two most common people who prey on FSBO’s are:
#1. Investors/Bargain Hunters: these people are looking to capitalize on a FSBO’S lack of negotiating experience and Calgary market knowledge to score their next deal. Any time a buyer doesn’t buy from a store or through a sales person they expect to pay substantially less. In a sense they would expect to save the sales commissions or profits that would normally go to a sales person or store owner. Why should someone do all the work a salesperson would do and still pay the same price? For example if the seller is trying to save six percent and the buyer is trying to save six percent, now they are 12 percent apart!
#2. People who can’t qualify to buy your home: These people will often approach FSBO’s because they have had previous financial difficulties and may want the owner to finance them. While for the right person, this could be a profitable investment, most sellers need to pull as much equity out of the property as possible to be able to move on with their next Calgary home purchase.
My team will ensure that only prospects who can qualify are introduced to your home. This eliminates the hassle of “lookers” and non-serious Calgary home buyers and reduces the chance of strangers who may have activities in mind other than buying a house. I can also recommend some of the best mortgage brokers in the industry, who can pull the necessary strings to help finance a purchase.
As a FSBO - Did you realize that any time a private seller is away from the home, the home is off of the Market? I will guarantee that someone will always be available to handle and follow up with inquiries during both peak hours and off-peak hours.
A seller selling privately can expect to put a minimum of 80 hours of “work” into the project, without a guaranteed result. This does not account for out-of –pocket expenditures such as advertising, lawn signs, etc. Selling a home CAN be extremely stressful! I can take care of the details, from the first step of marketing your Calgary Condo or home to the final sale, so you can continue on with your life.
