A tale of two houses

Red sign in the shape of a home with white arrow and white text: HOME FOR SALE

03/18/2016 | Author: Marty Kramer

There’s a house I drive by in my neighborhood that has had a For Sale By Owner sign in the yard for at least 10 weeks now.

There’s another home nearby with a Texas REALTOR®’s For Sale sign in the yard. That home went under contract two days after it came onto the market.

Certainly there are more differences between these homes than the fact that one is being sold by a professional and the other by the owner of the home. But it points out that selling a home takes a lot more than just sticking a sign in the ground.
