  • Tax Deductions: Commissions are Tax Deductible, ask your accountant.

  • For Sale by Owner's Sell for less than listed homes: This will usually pay the Agents commissions!

  • Not at home? Off the Market: For Sale by Owner's homes are only on the Market when the owner is home. No one can be home all of the time!

  • Multiple Listing Service:The exposure your home get with MLS. Your home gets viewed by agents, already working with preapproved buyers.

  • Investment: Often a person's largest investment is their home, and should be treated as such. Investments of this kind should be protected with the use of a professional.
