Trying to sell your own house?

Now is the time to sell!


Trying to sell your own house, without a Real Estate Specialist?  Or are you considering Selling your home without a Real Estate Specialist?  We Real Estate Specialist call these folks FSBO,  For Sale By Owner.

Many people believe they can save a considerable amount of money by selling their homes themselves. It may seem like a good idea at the time, but while you may be willing to take on the task, are you qualified? Following are some questions to help you realistically assess what’s involved:


  • DO you have the knowledge, patience, and sales skill needed to sell your home? IF your Buyer is aggressive, CAN you negotiate a successful outcome for yourself?
  • DO you know how to determine the current market value of your home? ARE you aware of conditions in the marketplace today that affect value and length of time to sell?
  • DO you know how to determine whether or not a Buyer can qualify for a loan? ARE you concerned about having strangers walking through your home?
  • DO you understand the steps of an escrow and what’s required of you and the Buyer? ARE you familiar enough with real estate regulations to prepare a binding sales contract? Counter-offers?
  • ARE you aware that every time you leave your home, you are taking it off the market until you return?
  • HAVE you made arrangements with an escrow and title company, home warranty company, pest-control service and lender to assist you with the transaction?
  • DO you need to hire a real estate attorney? If so, DO you know what the cost will be and how much liability they will assume in the transaction?
  • DO you know how to advertise effectively and what the costs will be?
  • ARE you aware that prospective Buyers and bargain hunters will expect you to lower your cost because there’s no Realtor® involved?
  • DO you understand the various types of loans Buyers may choose and the advantages and disadvantages for the Seller?
  • ARE you prepared to give up your evenings and weekends to show your home to potential Buyers and “just-looking” time wasters?
