We all have seen the signs as we drive through neighborhoods, “For Sale By Owner.” Often owners feel that they will save themselves money and time by selling their home on their own. In reality it’s just not true.

Buying a home is the biggest investment one can make… it gets emotional and messy. So, our response to those who think they want to sell their house on their own is – “If you needed open heart surgery would you just do it yourself?” Most of you are shaking your head no. Right?
