My house won't sell!

I have had my home listed under private sale for 97 days. Original asking was 195k and i had to drop it to 169k 45 days ago. Should I consider hiring a realtor or a real estate agent? Is there a difference in service or cost for one vs. the other type of agent? I could use some help. by graham313 from Morrisville, Vermont. 11 days ago Reply

I would interview a Real Estate professional and get their opinion, for sure. Getting your property on MLS can only help gain more attention.

Yes, using a professional will help...they will set the market price accurately as well as handle all the paperwork that is required. You as the seller do pay commissions for the Realtor. Using a professional a majority of the time secure a higher offer than a FSBO.Good luck!!

For Sale By Owner is not right for everyone. The vast majority of people who start out that way end up selling with the assistance of an agent. Primarily because the"system" is set up to use agents. You can do it yourself, but at this point, call an agent. You'll be glad you did.
