Why Selling A Home In A Hot Market Is Challenging
You might think that selling a house in a rapidly appreciating market is easy, and that all you have to do is stick a sign in the front yard and that’s that… well the truth is, if you want a hundred people calling you a day that’s the sure fire fastest way to achieve that…
Truthfully, the hardest part of selling a home in a rapidly appreciating market is knowing when to sell and what offer to take… And with no end in sight, but the looming risk of a market collapse analysis by paralysis can sink in…
The Reason most people flop on their home sale, wishing they got more…
“Timing the market” as some would call it is the hardest part of investing in stocks, crypto, bitcoin, you name it, and without years of experience it’s difficult to know when to put your money in and when to pull it out without loosing one’s proverbial shirt.
It’s no different with the housing market.
Most Central Texas homeowners only really buy and sell 1, 2 maybe 3 properties in their lives, and with the new generation some may never own a home…
With that being said, the hardest part about selling in an up market is knowing who to trust and when to pull the rip cord. I mean most folks don’t have the time to be fielding dozens of offers, let alone have the experience of selling hundreds of houses, especially not in such a hot market.

The Problem with Conventional “Wisdom”:
Most agents would have you believe that all you have to do is sign over the listing contract, and then let them “take it from there”, but the truth is that you will still need to have a say in what is the “highest and best” offer is FOR YOU.
The role of an agent is to act as the buffer, to absorb the bull and to take the impact of the multiple dozens of offers, be the filter, and help you decide what is going to make the most sense. There’s a reason they call us “fiduciaries” …
Highest and best doesn’t always mean the most cash on the table, especially when your agent is charging you a 3% on the seller side, and another agent comes in and offers a 3% buyer side fee.
You’re sandwiched between 6% in commissions and fees.
On a $400,000 house that’s an extra $12,000
On a $800,000 house that’s an extra $24,000
And on a $1.3M house that’s a whopping $39,000 that you’re paying to some guy to bring you an offer along with 49 other competitors…
Why leave so much money on the table?
But they will have you believe that by NOT listing with an agent you are also leaving money on the table, and truth be told, they are right.
For sale by owner homes, or FSBO as some would call it, are less likely to sell for more, even after you consider the agent fees.
But in such a hot market you would think that if you list it, or simply stick a sign in the front yard that it will sell itself, right?
Not necessarily, and besides do you want to be fielding the hundreds of calls you’re bound to get, in addition to working from home, dealing with the kids (or grand babies), and trying to schedule a showing with everyone in the house?
