Don’t Lose Your Friendship Over Real Estate … Is It Really Worth It?

Do Not List Your Home For Sale With Your Realtor Friend!

I have recently heard horror stories from Parkland homeowners that had awful experiences listing their homes with friends in the real estate business.  It is always more difficult to work with a friend or family member when trying to sell, especially in today’s real estate market.

Business is business!  Selling one of your largest financial assets is a very important decision!  Your friend or family member might not have the experience necessary to help negotiate the best sales price and terms!

If you still decide to list your home with a friend in the real estate business, then make sure to interview and demand the same hard work and dedication that a top-producing agent in your area would provide!

I wrote a recent article entitled: 23 Questions Sellers Must Ask When Interviewing A Realtor which should come in-handy when interviewing the RIGHT agent for the job of selling your home.

I have seen some sellers lose a tremendous amount of money by entrusting their listing to a friend or family member in the business.  Is it truly worth loosing a lot of money and your friendship or family too?
