Selling Your Inland Empire House Has Never Been This Easy!
As you know, you have many selling options for your Inland Empire house. We want to help you make the best decision for your property and situation. Consider these 3 points when selling your Inland Empire home:
- What is selling really going to cost? You might think that by skimping on commissions you will be saving yourself thousands, however, when you are working with the right agent, the price of the commission is nothing compared to what listing on your own would have cost you. When you work with Foster & Foster Realty, you will have true professionals by your side, helping you to navigate the selling process, saving you money and selling your house in the least amount of time possible. We can help you avoid the common pitfalls sellers make when listing on their own.
- How long will it take you? How much time do you have to dedicate to selling your home? Most people aren’t able to market and show the house as a dedicated agent would. We all have busy lives and our goal at Foster & Foster Realty is to make the process of selling as quick and simple as possible for you.
- Do you have the experience? If you are not living and breathing local real estate the way we do, you might find yourself unable to sell your house for the price you want. We have the tools, resources, and connections to help you sell your house fast and for the best price. The price of our commission will pay for itself.

** Both the Northwestern and the Stanford studies mentioned in the Money section confirm just that: “The use of a broker does lead to an accelerated sale. In that respect, brokers appear to add value,” the Stanford researchers declared. The Northwestern study found that it takes on average 20 days longer to sell a house on a FSBO site versus the MLS or an agent.
