Hire An Agent
Hiring an agent is an excellent choice for many properties. That said, when you list with an agent, there is no guarantee on if or when the house will sell. sometimes the property sells right away, and other times it takes months. This can make it difficult to plan ahead. In addition, you will likely face some costs upfront to get it ready for the MLS. You will need to make repairs, do some serious cleaning and possibly fix up the yard. You will also need to continue paying the expenses for the house for things such as property taxes, homeowners insurance, monthly utility bills as well as the regular maintenance costs. When selling your house in Boston, the faster you can sell it, the more cash you will be able to keep in your pocket overall. If the house does sell with a Boston agent, you will then need to pay your agents commission which will typically run about 6% of the final sale price. All of these costs, in addition to the time spent, can add up to thousands of dollars and simply isn’t worth it for some properties.
Sell The House Yourself
Selling your Boston house on your own can save you money on commissions, but it can also be very time-consuming and stressful. You will still need to make repairs and get the property ready for showings and you will also need to do the work of the agent. This includes screening calls from potential buyers, arranging property showings, filing the correct paperwork, dealing with the title company and managing the escrow process. An FSBO can be a lot of work, and the final sale price will usually be lower than if you had hired an agent in the first place. For some people, this can work, but for others, it can end up being a huge waste of time and money.
