Oro Valley Homes for Sale - For Sale By Owner

Selling your home on your own may be harder than you think! Here are some points to consider:

You may place the security of your home and yourself at risk. Ads and “For Sale by Owner” signs tend to invite just anyone to inspect your house. You have very little control and no opportunity to pre-screen potential buyers.

You may not know the marketplace well enough to establish the best price for your home. If it is too high, you may lose buyers. If you ask too little, you stand to lose a great deal of money.

Coordination of arrangements and the paperwork involved with a home sale requires many hours, especially if you are not well versed in real estate and the law. You also stand a chance of making costly mistakes.

Along with print advertising opportunities, we attract buyers through the Multiple Listing Service, LongRealty.com and multiple website platforms and through numerous referral opportunities.

Without good advertising and professional help, your home may be on the market for too long to get top dollar. That makes it harder to sell even if you do ultimately decide to list it with a Realtor. People may think it hasn’t sold because there is a problem.

Buyers often need assistance with financing. That’s a job best left to a trained professional.

Unless you are skilled in the art of compromise, you may not be able to effectively close your sale. The “give and take” aspects of the sale of a home must be skillfully negotiated before a transaction is successfully completed.

Believe it or not, buyers don’t like to deal directly with home sellers. They aren’t comfortable asking questions or pointing out discrepancies since insult or confrontation may result. Dealing with a REALTOR® gives them confidence and reassurance

FSBOs typically sell for less than the selling price of other homes; at a median of $190,000 last year and significantly lower than the median of agent-assisted homes at $250,000. Thus, the typical agent-assisted home sale has a 32% higher sales price than the typical FSBO sale.

Oro Valley Homes for Sale - Looking at New Construction

It’s important that I am with you on the first visit to any builders site. Why? Builders have a rule – If you walk into a model home without your agent, the builders agent will register you and I will be unable to represent you throughout the process. Remember, the site agent will be working for the builder’s interests.
I will look out for your best interests from the time you enter the model until the time you close on your new home.
I will help you understand the terms and conditions of the builder’s contract. These contracts heavily favor the builder and are usually lengthy and complicated.
I will help you sort through the negotiations, financing options, and incentives in order to get the best terms and conditions for your purchase.
I have expertise to guide you in upgrade selections or custom changes that you would like to make during the build, and make sure you are aware of the cost.
I will communicate with you and the builder representative throughout the process, and will do my best to ensure a surprise-free transaction.
If your contract permits this due diligence, I will explain the benefits of a home inspection performed by an independent inspector.  
I’ll also accompany you on your walk-through, when you create your “Punch List” of items the builder will need to address within 30 days.
