Selling your own home doesn’t come without it’s challenges. But many of the concerns that sellers tackling the process alone used to face have now been solved by HomeBay’s unique combination of service and technology. In short, HomeBay offers an easy, affordable option to sellers looking for a better way. Let’s take a look.
Challenge #2: You’re Afraid You’ll Price Your House Wrong
Sellers tend to overvalue the worth of their home because of a phenomena known as seller bias. What causes this? You love your home. You’ve created memories there and have put blood, sweat and tears into maintaining and improving it, so your attachment adds intangible value. Unfortunately, buyers don’t have that same attachment, therefore the value add isn’t there for them.
That’s why we provide you with guidance on how to overcome seller bias and will help you price your house right the first time. You also have unlimited access to our support staff who can help you with any questions you have along the way.
Challenge #3: You Worry About Not Getting Enough Buyer Exposure
If you’re not a marketing whiz by trade, you may wonder how on earth your going to get anyone to even see your listing. Well here are a few key places to start.
If you list through Home Bay, you will appear on the exact same sites that agents market on. To make sure you’re listing is seen by as many buyers as possible, the first thing Home Bay does is get your home listed on the MLS. By doing so, your listing is automatically distributed to popular real estate sites like Trulia, Zillow Realtor.com and Redfin in addition to thousands of local real estate agent sites.
