Why Using a Real Estate Professional Beats Selling Your Home Yourself

When it comes to selling your home, the choice between hiring a real estate professional or going the For Sale By Owner (FSBO) route can be daunting. While FSBO might seem like a way to save on commission fees, it often results in more stress, less exposure, and potentially less money in your pocket. Here’s why partnering with a seasoned real estate team like the Morsa Moore Team at Compass is the smarter move.

Angela Morsa and Rick Moore bring over seven decades of combined marketing, business, and real estate experience. Our team has the expertise to navigate the complexities of the real estate market, ensuring you get the best deal possible. We provide expert consultative services to prepare your home for sale, aggressively market it to prospective buyers, and manage offers in a highly competitive market​​​​.

One of the biggest advantages of hiring a real estate professional is access to top-tier marketing. With over $1.5 billion invested in technology and a robust marketing network, Compass offers unparalleled exposure for your property. This includes digital reach, social media advertising, professional photography, and virtual tours that draw in serious buyers​​. FSBO homes often lack the marketing muscle needed to stand out in a crowded market.

Statistics consistently show that homes sold by real estate agents typically fetch higher prices than those sold by owners. A study by the National Association of Realtors found that the median sale price of agent-assisted homes was significantly higher than FSBO homes. FSBOs accounted for 7% of home sales in 2023. Nationally, the typical FSBO home sold for almost $100,000 more when represented by a Realtor. With our team’s negotiation skills and market knowledge, we aim to price your home accurately and maximize your sale price, ensuring you get the best return on your investment.

Selling a home requires significant time and effort—from staging and showing the property to handling negotiations and paperwork. The Morsa Moore Team takes care of these tasks for you, providing a seamless and stress-free experience. On average, our listed homes spend less than 10 days on the market, thanks to our effective strategies and dedicated service​​.

Real estate professionals have access to a vast network of potential buyers and other agents. At Compass, our national network spans 45% of the country’s population, giving your home more exposure to qualified buyers. This broad reach increases the chances of finding the right buyer quickly and at the right price​​.

Real estate transactions involve numerous legal documents and complex processes. Errors in paperwork can lead to costly delays or legal issues. Our team ensures that all contracts and documents, such as the important Seller’s Disclosures, are accurately prepared and filed, protecting you from potential pitfalls. FSBO sellers often miss critical details that can jeopardize the sale.

We pride ourselves on providing high-touch personal service coupled with high-tech solutions. We are committed to being a resource for you before, during, and after the sale. Our team, including licensed transaction managers and marketing coordinators, supports you every step of the way, ensuring a smooth and successful sale​​​​.

While selling your home yourself might seem like a cost-saving option, the benefits of hiring a real estate professional far outweigh the potential savings. With the Morsa Moore Team at Compass, you gain access to unparalleled expertise, marketing power, and support that can lead to a quicker sale and a higher return on your investment. Don’t navigate the complexities of the real estate market alone—partner with professionals who have your best interests at heart.
