Taking on FSBO: An Interview with Real Estate Talk - Boston

Recently, Steve had the opportunity to speak with Chris Devin, host of Real Estate Talk - Boston (@RETalkBoston) on RadioBDC.

There is much to talk about in Greater Boston real estate these days - pricing, inventory, and interest rates to name a few. This interview tackles FSBO (For Sale By Owner), specifically, "Can You Sell Your Home Yourself?"

With inventory levels so low and houses moving fast, it is easy to understand why some would-be home sellers think this is a no-brainer. Can you sell your home yourself? Of course you can, but there are many reasons why you may not want to.

This interview is a must-listen for anyone who has considered (or is considering) selling a home themselves.RealTalkBoston_1

As Steve discusses, anyone can put a 'For Sale' sign on their lawn, but that's not why you hire a professional. These are just a few of the topics Steve covers in detail:

  • Negotiating with buyers, bank appraisers, lawyers, inspectors, loan officers, etc.
  • Preparing the home to sell
  • Understanding the market and demographics
  • Pricing it right for the seller, and the pool of buyers

Take a minute, give it a listen, and you'll have a much better understanding of FSBO in today's Greater Boston real estate market.
