For Sale By Owner homes sales have decreased immensely over the past few decades to under 10% of all home sellers using this very unpopular method. With the housing market currently a bidding war on all homes for sale, we are scared some home owners may try to sell their current house as a For Sale By Owner (FSBO). Maybe we should look at why this idea is not exactly the most efficient when moving.
A very well-known axiom is as follows: “The attorney who represents himself is dumb and has a fool as a client.” If this holds true for an attorney, then we can conclude that the same can be considered for any Portland home owner who sells as a For Sale by Owner (FSBO). In today’s extremely volatile market, you need an experienced professional in the field of real estate, and that is where the Godfrey Real Estate Group comes in! You and your family deserve to have a skilled negotiator who has meticulously worked in this field for countless years. In today’s very competitive offer driven market, hiring a talented negotiator could in fact end up saving you up to tens of thousands of dollars.
Each step of the way from the first time offer, to the unfortunate possible cancellation of the deal based on a troubled appraisal, you very much so need a talented Portland Real Estate Agent who can keep the deal together until the very end.
Here is a list of just a few of the people with whom the Godfrey Real Estate Group will more than likely negotiate with on your behalf:
§ The buyer
§ The buyers agent
