realtor or FSBO..pros and cons
Planning on selling the house in late spring. Having a heated discussion with DH regarding using a realtor. DH thinks realtors do the same amount of work whether they are selling a 100k house or a 600K house, so why should they get a percentage vs. a flat fee. Are they really worth 30k ?
I say, I care about the huge cost, but would rather have someone else negotiate and use their expertise and connections to bring in buyers. I know that I will end up with the brunt of worry and work if we try FSBO. I care more, therefore I end up doing more.
So, pros and cons please . Our house would be in the 600k range. would it be prudent to compromise ? Like t, try FSBO for a few months. We could use a service that puts it on the MLS. DH is in advertising, so brochures would look professional...pic of house probably better than most I've seen.
