Many sellers venture down the For Sale By Owner (FSBO) path, confident they can manage the many aspects of listing and selling on their own. Selling a home on your own can become a full-time job.
Most sellers decide to sell their home on their own to save money. Many agents will tell you that attempting to sell your own home is foolish. The reality of it is that sellers do it every day and with the information available on the internet it has become easier. You can sell on your own in this market and retain equity if you know what to do and are willing to do it.
The biggest factors in selling a home on your own are PRICE and MARKETING.
PRICE- No one will overpay so pricing your home correctly the first time is very important. You need to stay ahead of changing prices and be objective about the good and the bad of your home to fully understand the recently sold comparables.
MARKETING- How will buyers find your home. Listing on national real estate websites will help but by far the largest site to get your home in front of as many buyers as possible is still going to be the Multiple Listing Services. Another large component of Marketing is having your home in front of as many buyers as possible everywhere they search the internet.
