Can I Sell my Columbus OH Home by Myself?


If you've been considering selling your property or real estate is probably thought about doing it yourself. After all, most home sellers think they can save a lot of money by selling it themselves. What sellers don't realize is all the details that go into selling a property. If you’re not facing foreclosure or not worried about a short sale, selling your home yourself may be very doable, however, there are many legalities and documents that must be completed properly in order for the transaction to close on time. Sellers may not realize how much goes into advertising a property and marketing it to potential buyers.


As a Columbus Ohio real estate agent I not only post my listings to the local MLS, but I have a connection to hundreds of other real estate agents in the area, not just within my team, but other agencies and brokerages in the Columbus area, across Ohio, and even nationwide. Because of this connection, I may know of a buyer's agent that has a buyer ready for your home. Being in the business for so long allows me to collect a network of resources and referrals nationwide.


Once your property is listed I can offer staging suggestions, repairs that you may not realize buyers are looking for, and help on showing your property and being flexible. Living in a home for so long, many sellers turn a blind eye to what they really stand out to buyers. Once the buyer has found interest in your home, I can help you decipher the sometimes confusing legal jargon of a proper purchase and sale agreement. I will walk you through answering any questions you may have as you sit back and wait for the right offer to come in. I use all my own advertising dollars and my extensive network marketing team to get your property the exposure it needs for the right buyer. All help show your home to potential buyers, conduct open houses and brokers open, and advertise your home online, in print, and in person.


One of the hidden gems about using a real estate agent that many sellers don’t realize is that you may actually walk away with more profit at the close of your sale then selling it yourself. Why is this? Many sellers don't realize how they need to price the home to begin with. Many times they price the home far over market value and then chase it down far lower than they actually figured they would go to begin with. Because of this they end up with less money in their pocket at closing then had they priced it correctly the first time with an agent.
