The average FSBO home sold for $46,000 less than the average agent-listed home in 2013.

NARResearch-FSBO-StatIn December @NAR_Research hosted a Twitter conversation about some of the findings from the 2013  2013 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers.  See highlights from the conversation here, but the screenshot above is one of our favorite tweets.  Our area doesn’t have a lot of For Sale By Owners, in fact, most areas don’t have more than 2% or so these days because of cold hard facts like this one.  The average FSBO home sold for $46,000 less than the average agent-listed home in 2013.

Remember, friends don’t let friends FSBO.  Refer them to us and we promise to take good care of them!  ;-)

Boomerang Buyers

A “boomerang buyer” is someone who previously has went through a foreclosure or short sale, but is ready to get back into the real estate market.  Every situation is different, but even if you have a short sale or foreclosure in your past, you may still be able to buy a home.  Contact a Crown agent to help you determine next steps and for lender recommendations.

5 Reasons to Hire a Real Estate Agent

 

5 Reasons

For most people, buying or selling a home is the LARGEST financial transaction they will ever undertake, that is why it’s so important to get an experienced and honest REALTOR® to help you with your real estate needs.  At Crown Realty, all our associates go through extensive training and have a huge support team!  Don’t leave it to chance!

Paperwork

The Kansas City Association of Realtors® has a team of attorneys review our contracts every year to make sure they have everything we need in them.  Only a member of KCRAR can provide you with the proper contracts and addenda to make your transaction legally binding!  Did you know that the EPA can fine you thousands of dollars if you don’t have the proper Lead Based Paint Disclosures?  A Crown agent can help you avoid some costly mistakes.

2 – Process

In a typical real estate transaction, there are over 100 steps to a successful closing.  From showings, gathering feedback, receiving an offer, ordering title work, and everything else involved, it’s crucial that you have an expert on your team!

3 – Negotiation

The role of a Realtor® is to act as the middle man between buyer and seller in what can sometimes be a very emotional interaction.  At Crown, we are experienced negotiators, and as Realtors®, we are legally bound to do what is best for our clients!

Values

Crown agents are members of Heartland MLS, and have access to an extensive history of comparable sales data, so we can help buyer determine what the best price to offer is and help sellers decide how to price their listing.

Teacher

Realtors® are required to take continuing education classes every year, and at Crown Realty, we offer our associates plenty of additional training to keep everyone updated.  We believe staying on top of the market and current trends is crucial, and we love to share our knowledge with our clients!  Let us help you with your next real estate transaction!
