Q. Jim, Can I sell my Cary home myself?

A. The short answer is maybe yes – maybe no. We understand the number one reason sellers try to sell their own home is to save fees and commissions. While it might seem like the natural option to market your own home, be sure you know what is involved before venturing into the uncharted waters of managing a legal real estate transaction. You should know real estate professionals, according to industry data, conducted the vast majority of home sells. It is recommend you consider your investment of time needed to commit to this serious legal transaction. Do you possess the marketing skills and real estate experience required to insure your success of getting top dollar for your home plus sell it in a timely manner? Understand this, homes listed with real estate agents sell for 16% more money plus sell in less time than those sold by the homeowner. If you’re thinking about selling your home yourself, be sure to request your free market analysis so you set the “right price” for your home.

Q. How do I set the “asking price” for my Wake Forest home?

A. There are four primary variables that impact the “ fair market value” of your Wake Forest home and they are location, the overall condition of the property, recently sold comparable homes in your neighborhood and ultimately, what a qualified buyer is willing to pay for your Wake Forest home. Also, you will need to consider if the real estate market is hot (sellers market) or is it cool (buyers market)? Is the local market neutral meaning there is no clear advantage for the seller or the buyer?
