Provided by National Association of Realtors® 2017, they conducted a study on home sale data related to agent-assisted sales VS by-owner sales.
You want to know a crazy statistic?
The average sale price of an agent-assisted sale was 250,000. It was 190,000 for by-owner sales. Considering selling to someone you know? Stats show the average sale price was 160,300.
That’s crazy! FSBOs might make as much as 36% less, on average.
The concern we hear most from folks trying to sell their own home is that they want to save on commissions. Here’s the deal: you won’t save on commissions. While you won’t pay commissions (that is, unless you allow a buyer to have their own agent), you will LOSE money.
Even if you cut that number in half, wouldn’t you rather pay, say, 5-7% total commission for an agent to assist? Consider it a 4-7x return on your investment AND you don’t have to do any of the work. Talk about a win!
