Top Three Reasons To Sell Your Home Without A Realtor In Oklahoma City This Summer

A house with a lot of grass in front of it

It’s summer time in Oklahoma and as we all know that means moving season, yes moving that one life activity despised above all others. It’s hot and getting hotter what better time to physically lift your entire existence to a new location! All jokes aside summer is the moving season and there is no greater time than now to take this opportunity to sell your property. In the spirit of the move we present the top three reasons to sell your home without a realtor:

1. Savings – When you sell your house without a realtor you save on average 3% that would have been spent on realtor commissions. Keep in mind if a realtor is involved with the buyer they will expect to receive a 3% commission for their effort. To truly avoid commissions, you will need to find a buyer that is not represented by a realtor, keep that in mind as you analyze your choices.

2. Control – Selling a property (FSBO- for sale by owner) means you control the timing of both the open houses and the showings. This allows you to work around your own schedule and control when you allow people into your home. While you gain control of viewings if you have a busy schedule this may present delays and the potential for loss of opportunity with time-sensitive buyers.

3. Access to Marketing Tools – With today’s access to Zillow, Redfin and any number online resources marketing your property to potential buyers has never been easier. The key to providing effective marketing is a focus on imagery, pay a photographer to photo your house and post 20-30 pictures in your posting. Make sure your images are well lit and the property is clean. The more images you post the more time you will have for potential buyers to imagine themselves living in the property.

Once you have an interested buyer make sure and request a cash deposit (earnest money), you will also need to make sure and contact an attorney and title company to help facilitate the closing.
