Here is a subject that comes up quite often... I have talked to a couple of folks this week that have had their property listed as a For Sale By Owner (FSBO). For whatever reason they're resistant to paying a commision to a real estate agent. Maybe they don't then we work that hard or maybe they had a bad experience with a prior agent.

On some level I actually understand their resistance to paying a commision. I love saving money and I am, and always will be, a DIY kind of girl.  But, in advertising I worked with clients all the time that wanted to use the logo they designed on their computer, or that had "interesting" ideas about what their campaign should look like. Occasioanlly they'd have a great idea, but 9 times out of 10 I'd have to come up with some diplomatic way to explain why we could do better, or what might be more effective for them. Anyway -  that experience taught me a lot about hiring a professional, someone that works hard, that's smart and someone you can trust and then getting out of their way.

There are statistics that paint a pretty compelling picture about why you should use an agent. For instance:

  • The average FSBO home sold for $184,000 while the average agent-assisted home sale was $230,000. This means that an agent-assisted home sale can get you a 25% larger profit. Assuming you paid a 6% agent commission on a $235,000 home, or $14,100, you would still come out $36,900 ahead! Looks like a win for everybody.
  • Yard signs are great but only 10% of sellers find their property via yard signs.
  • Nearlt 90% of homes in the US are sold via a real estate agent -  just 8% via FSBO.

Also preparing all of the legal forms, disclosures etc. is your responsibility, and if you’re unfamiliar with the guidelines and requirements, which most people are, you are under a larger financial and legal liability.

Sunriver Indoor Arena

Here is an interesting property I just showed to a client.  A cabin in the woods with a BIG covered arena. This secluded property needs fencing and the arena hasn't been used in awhile but it's jn pretty good condition, considering. Even the arena footing is decent. Imagine yourself in the secluded paradise connected to endless trail riding.  There is a cozy cabin, 2 wells, a pond and 2 additional outbuildings.  Let me know if you'd like to know more about it. It's just $449,995.

I toured this place recently and it's a wonderful opportunity for someone who wants a complete horse facility. The house has tons of possibility and it's just a few miles from Costco. The indoor is big, light and bright. The outdoor is nice and has lights installed. Solid fencing, functional barn wtih stalls and runs. There is even a bridge over the canal for trail access. 36 acres, irrigation, and more for $964,00. Let me know if you have any questions or would like to see it.
