Agents Sell Homes for Thousands More Than Owners

Picture this: A home owner wants to sell their house, so they stick a "For Sale By Owner" sign out front. They figure that selling without an agent will save them big money on a commission, while only requiring a bit more work on their part. Sound familiar? In fact, 48% of people selling without an agent cite this as the primary reason why they chose to do so. While this financial logic may seem reasonable, the reality is that homes sold through a trained real estate agent sign for an average of $39,000 more than those sold by owner!
