FSBO vs REALTOR - Haring Realty

It's not uncommon for a seller's thoughts to wander toward the idea of selling their home by themself. At first glance, it seems like an expedient way to sell their home and save money in the process. However, our REALTORS® caution that the process isn't as easy as it may seem, and even the most seasoned seller can make costly mistakes that an agent would avoid.

  • Time is Money
    Selling a home requires a significant investment of time. You need to prepare marketing materials, schedule appraisals, and prepare the house before you even list it. Once the home is on the market, you'll spend hours each day answering phone calls, responding to emails, and preparing to host an open house. It's akin to taking on a second job, which can affect job performance and the ability to connect and close the deal with prospective buyers.

Overcoming Homebuying Obstacles - Haring Realty

It's a competitive real estate market. For first-time homebuyers, the goal of homeownership can appear difficult to achieve. While it's true that there are obstacles in the path, it's not impossible to overcome them and beat the odds. Our REALTORS® know how to help first-time homebuyers position themselves in the market to purchase the home they desire. 

Overcoming the Obstacles to Homeownership

  • Strict Lending Requirements
    This is often the most daunting obstacle first-time homebuyers need to tackle. Overcoming it requires a multi-prong approach that starts with trimming the budget. Eliminating unnecessary spending, paying off credit card debt, and consolidating existing loan obligations at a lower interest rate are essential steps. It pays big dividends. It will help first-time homebuyers save money for the down payment, and it reduces the debt-to-income ratio. It also helps boost the credit score a few points, which allows buyers to qualify for a lower interest rate.
