As a Homeowner when it comes time to sell your Lake Charles home, you may think you can save money  selling your home yourself instead of using the services of a Lake Charles Realtor.  If this is what you are thinking, you  may be kidding yourself.  What starts out as an easy journey to try to save the cost of a commission, can also cost you a qualified home buyer not to mention the frustration and inconvenience of trying to do things yourself.

Less than 3% of closed homes are For Sale by Owner properties.

Did you know that many Lake Charles Home Buyers want to be represented by a REALTOR?  With the low interest rates  home buyers are motivated to purchase their first Lake Charles home.

  • First time home buyers need the help of a Realtor to guide them through the home purchase process.
  • First time home buyers are hesitant to inquire about For Sale By Owner properties.

Why do I know this….. because I work with a lot of Lake Charles first time home buyers  and just closed  this For Sale By Owner  home located in Barbe Country Estates  this week.  The Buyers and new owners are newlyweds and Lake Charles first time home buyers!   We had been looking at homes in South Lake Charles and I told them if they  found a For Sale By Owner home they wanted to see to call me.  In this case the home they loved was a For Sale by Owner and  the Sellers understood that the buyers wanted to be represented by a Realtor, which was me, Marilyn Boudreaux, Century 21 Mike D.

How do I know so much about For Sale By Owners?  Because I have SOLD For Sale By Owner properties to Buyers I have represented!  That’s right REALTORS are the ones with the Buyers, just remember that when you are trying to sell your home on your own and your phone is not ringing with interest.

I work with qualified Lake Charles  buyers looking to purchase  homes in Lake Charles.   I am very cooperative and will be glad to call a FSBO and even show my buyers a For Sale By Owner home if the Seller is willing to pay me a 3% commission

If you wish for me to represent you as a Seller in the transaction I can also do that and advise you.  This is a wise decision because if your home does go under contract you will have many questions about what needs to take place next and if I represent you I can answer those questions and explain paperwork required such as inspections and addendums.

Why work with a Lake Charles Realtor?  It makes sense to hire someone who knows what they’re doing when selling your most valuable asset.

If you really want to give the FSBO route a try in order to sell your Lake Charles home, I say go ahead and exhaust your efforts but when you decide you need help, for goodness sake, make sure you contact an experienced, skilled, professional REALTOR who will work with you in achieving your goals! Remember… REALTORS are connected to the Buyers
