5 Reasons Selling Your Home As-Is Can Save You A Lot Of Money.

5 Steps to Selling Your House On Your Own.

June 15, 2020

Step 1: Prepare Your House to Be Marketed
You can't just let total strangers wander around inside your home, checking for storage space - they are looking at its potential for their lifestyle, not yours.So what can you do with the things you have in places potential buyers will want to consider for their own things? Get a storage unit to house the things you won't need while your home is on the market. A place to hide all those things currently sitting in your garage, your attic, your basement, in closets, or even in a crawlspace. Advisers generally recommend removing about a third of such things from your home - anything you don't use every day. And if you store it in a portable unit, it can all be brought to your new home.

Step 2: Price Your Home Competitively to Sell
Use the internet to get an idea of sales prices for comparable homes in your neighborhood and price yours accordingly. That's what real estate agents and tax assessors do anyway. Don't forget, your goal is to sell your home, not to price it out of a desire to keep it.

Step 3: Market Your Property
Besides just listing your home on the MLS, you should advertise using "for sale" signs, brochures, advertising online, and building a web site to market the property. The 'For Sale By Owner' website offers home-selling packages for homeowners. The packages include items like brochures and yard signs. There are costs involved in advertising the sale of your home, but they will be a fraction of an agent's commission.

Step 4: Know the Selling Points of Your Property
When writing your advertisements for websites or brochures, make sure to include basic information about the house: the price, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, lot size, location, and any specific details that make the house special to potential buyers - its age, style, building materials, yard, garden or trees are just a few such items.

Look at other listings on real estate websites, Craigslist, or other sites to get an idea of the details sellers and agents are including. For example, they might mention things you didn't think about, like oversized windows, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops.

Step 5: Be Sure to Comply With All Laws in Your Area
Some laws apply to the sale of a home no matter where you live, such as the Fair Housing Act. The Fair Housing Act stipulates that sellers cannot discriminate against buyers for reasons including race, religion, and sex. While you can find contracts and other agreements online, they aren't specific to your unique situation, so it would be a good idea to have a real estate attorney review all documents and contracts related to your home's sale.

So there you are, selling your home without a real estate agent in relatively straight forward. Though, it is a fairly long and time consuming process.
