Exit Preferred Realty's Blog
In a recovering market, some sellers might be tempted to try and sell their home on their own (FSBO) without using the services of a real estate professional. The real estate agent is a trained and experienced negotiator. In most cases, the seller is not.
The seller must realize the ability to negotiate will determine whether they get the best deal for themselves and their family.
Here is a list of some of the people with whom the seller must be prepared to negotiate if they decide to FSBO:
- The buyer who wants the best deal possible
- The buyer's agent who solely represents the best interest of the buyer
- The buyer's attorney (in some parts of the country)
- The home inspection companies which work for the buyer and will almost always find some problems with the house
- The termite company if there are challenges
- The buyer's lender if the structure of the mortgage requires the sellers' participation
- The appraiser if there is a question of value
- The title company if there are challenges with certificates of occupancy (CO) or other permits
- The town or municipality if you need to get the COs permits mentioned above
- The buyer's buyer in case there are challenges on the house your buyer is selling
- Your bank in the case of a short sale

This list is pretty daunting. My strong negotiating techniques have been frequently welcomed by sellers we have represented. I'd love to talk with you about how they can work for you too. Give me a call - Tim

Just finished an awesome week at EXIT Broker/Owner Training in Canada. Forget "Game Changer" this was a "Life Changer". Steve Morris our Founder & Chairman plus other top brass of EXIT Corporation spent 5 and a half days with us. Teaching / Training and Coaching not to mention putting their hearts and soles into the event. This is the only Real Estate company that cares about their Agents and Owners in this manner. People including myself were all crying this afternoon as we told the group "Why EXIT" and what EXIT Realty means to us. â€ª#LOVEXITâ€¬
