Consider These Important Factors When Selling Your House In San Diego County…
- What will selling really cost? When you work with Homes By Felicity, you will pay the standard commission and nothing more. When you attempt to sell your house on your own, or with a limited services agent, you will need to pay for the listing, marketing and all the costs that go into a successful sale.
- How much time will you need to spend to sell your house? Think of all the work that goes into selling. From handling the marketing to taking calls from potential buyers to working with the title company to handling escrow, it can end up taking much more time than you may think. How much is your time worth and are you prepared to handle everything that comes along with selling?
- Do you have real estate experience? You will need to list the home at the right price, make sure you have a clean title, and process all the paperwork and contracts to ensure everything is done legally. Many novice sellers make mistakes that ultimately cost thousands. We can help you avoid these kinds of mistakes!

** Both the Northwestern and the Stanford studies mentioned in the Money section confirm just that: “The use of a broker does lead to an accelerated sale. In that respect, brokers appear to add value,” the Stanford researchers declared. The Northwestern study found that it takes on average 20 days longer to sell a house on a FSBO site versus the MLS or an agent.
