If you are planning on selling your property, you may be trying to put together the advantages and disadvantages of selling it yourself versus entering into a real estate agent agreement or maybe you are trying to decide who may be the best agent with whom you should list your property.
Well the answer is not as clear cut as you may be hoping for and there are many variables that you may want to further consider.
If you are pondering a for-sale-by-owner situation, you should ask yourself these questions first.
- Who are my possible buyers?
- Are they recreational sportsmen, investors, row crop farmers, group hunters or a combination of the above?
- How can I reach the target demographics?
- Are your motivations for selling monetary because of a financial situation, a desire to upgrade into a newer property or because of a life changing event?
- How quickly do you need to sell your property?
- Do you care about the future of the property after the sale has been consummated and there is a new owner who controls the property?
- What things can a real estate agent do for you that you can’t do for yourself?
- Do you have the time to handle all the necessary paperwork and are you willing to accept the liability in handling certain documents?
- Are you willing to spend the necessary money for advertising and do you have the knowledge to determine where that advertising should take place?
- Can you help find creative financing solutions to help buyers secure a loan for your property?

If you choose to partner with a real estate representative, the issue now becomes one of choosing the right agent that can address your needs.
