When you sell your home, you have options.
Will you sell with an agent, or do it yourself? Rocket Homes® has made it easy to explore both options and understand what each path to selling your home entails, all within our new, easy-to-navigate web experience.
Whether you’re considering selling with one of our Rocket Homes® Verified Partner Agents or going the For Sale By Owner (FSBO) route with our sister company ForSaleByOwner.com, you’ll have all the information you need to make an informed decision and understand what your next steps are.
Whichever path you choose, sell your home on your terms.
Two Paths. One Destination.
Rocket Homes® gives you all the resources and tools you need to confidently sell your home in a way that works for you. With this new web experience, sellers can easily learn about the two ways to sell their home.
Sell With An Agent
When you sell with one of our Verified Partner Agents, you have the comfort of knowing you’re in the hands of a professional. Your agent will walk you through the process, providing expert local market insight, answering all of your questions and taking care of every detail to ensure your home selling experience is a smooth one.
Let Us Take The Lead
Our agents will handle all the details related to your listing, including pricing, marketing and coordinating showings. They’ll also make sure to showcase to potential buyers just how great your home is with professional listing photos.
Once you’ve found a buyer, your agent will help you go through their offer and, if you need to, negotiate it. They’ll also work to set up your closing and help you avoid any last-minute snags.
Maximum Listing Exposure
With our agents, you can be confident that your home is getting maximum exposure to buyers and the agents who represent them.
For starters, your home will be listed on the MLS, ensuring that other real estate professionals in your area are able to find your home for their clients. In addition, our agents list homes on all major real estate websites, so no matter where buyers are looking, they’ll be able to see your home.
What It Costs
When you sell with Rocket Homes®, you’ll get a free consultation with a Real Estate Advisor who will get to know your unique needs and help match you with the right agent.
If you’re able to sell your home, sellers typically pay the commission of both their listing agent as well as the buyer’s agent. This usually ends up costing between 5% – 6% of the sale price.
Sell On Your Own
More of a DIY type? You take the lead. You’ll have the support and tools you need to successfully list, market and sell your FSBO home with our sister company ForSaleByOwner.com, America’s top FSBO site.
You Call The Shots
ForSaleByOwner.com will provide guidance on pricing and marketing your home, but you’re in the driver’s seat. Going the FSBO route means you’re in charge of every detail, from listing to negotiating to closing. This can be great for those who want to feel more in control of their home sale.
Doing your FSBO sale with us also grants you some flexibility. You’re in charge, but if you need a little help – say, with figuring out your home’s worth or accessing the necessary legal documents – we’re here for you.
Owner Knows Best
Create your own custom listing that shows off your home’s best features.
As a homeowner, you’re the expert on your home’s best photo angles or the details that make your home really special. Use your customizable listing and unlimited listing photos to show buyers what makes your home great.
What It Costs
Listing on ForSaleByOwner.com is free. Additionally, when you sell without an agent, you’ll likely save on commission costs, since you’ll only be paying the buyer’s agent’s commission.
On average, ForSaleByOwner.com sellers save over $14,000 on home sale costs.
