We hear a lot of myths every day from potential home sellers when they are getting ready to sell their house. Here are a few of the more common ones we hear ALL THE TIME:


Myth #1 – There’s only one way to sell a house.

WRONG

There are several ways to sell your house, many that don’t even involve a REALTOR.

Edward Gates III Real Estate will show you ALL of your options  and can help you make the best decision based on your situation.


Myth #2 – I can just sell to an i-buyer (like OpenDoor) for top dollar.

WRONG

There are multiple i-buyers out there. They all work differently, and they NEVER pay top dollar for your home.

Edward Gates III Real Estate will bring you offers from all the top i-buyers, along with cash offers from local private investors, and compare them side-by-side with how much you could realistically get for your house on the market.


Myth #3 – It’s a seller’s market, so I can just sell my home as it.

PARTIALLY TRUE... 

...but you severely limit your buying pool to certain types of mortgages and cash buyers, and you certainly will not get top dollar for it.

Edward Gates III Real Estate will go over what kind of repairs are necessary for stringent VA and FHA mortgage requirements, and will advise you on how to get top dollar for your home with minimal investment.


Myth #4 – I can just sell my house myself on Zillow.

GO FOR IT! BUT...

Be prepared to lose money. The average home sold by owner sells for 10-15% LESS than it would have sold had an agent been representing. It will also take you a lot longer to sell.

Edward Gates III Real Estate has a unique structured commission structure so that you can decide how much work you want to put into selling your house, and how much work you want us to do for you. And no matter what level you decide, you will have a licensed real estate agent in you employ to handle all contracts, counter offers, and addendums, as well as all negotiations.


If you are thinking of selling your home, Edward Gates III Real Estate and The Remer Group are dedicated to making sure you are INFORMED and EDUCATED about the real estate market. We are committed to making sure you are aware of ALL the options, even if that means we don’t make as much money. You’ll never find a more honest team of hard-working Realtors than the agents at The Remer Group. Call today to set up your free consultation. 602-400-1412
