Sellers who don’t know the rules can get stuck with unnecessary and costly repairs. Owners should not expect their reports to cover more superficial conditions, the types that can be fixed with a can of paint.
Many of the owners aren’t going to have a trained eye to know everything that needs to be fixed up and changed and many will end up relying on the inspector for this information. Inspection reports and the timeframe in which they are delivered vary a lot from situation to situation. A realtor makes this situation much more fluid.
This is part of the hidden cost as well, but it is one of the biggest cost associated with FSBO. This is where you can start to tell them about the steps you take to get homes seen and sold. Show them the numerous strategies and platforms that you can use, that they won’t have access to. You might hear the argument that it doesn’t take an agent that much time to sell a house.
But no matter what usually, it will always take the agent less time to get it sold. Talk to them about all the time they will have to put in, doing each task, from trivial ones to marketing the home where they can. This is why this is the biggest benefit of hiring an agent.
