When you sell a house using a realtor, his or her commission takes a big chunk out of any money you might make on the deal. If you’re willing to put in some time and hard work, you don’t have to hire a realtor to sell your house. However, most people don’t know how to sell a house by owner.
The first thing you need to do is price your home. One way to do this is to hire an appraiser and use the value that he or she assigns. You can also look at similar listings in your area to get a range of values. It is important to price your home competitively with others that have similar features.
Get Ready to Advertise
Before you start advertising, clean your home thoroughly and stage it in a way that is attractive to buyers. You may want to consider getting professional advice in this area. Next, take several pictures of each room in optimal lighting. You can use these to create an online advertisement, a flyer, and an ad in the local newspaper. You also need to have a sign in your front yard indicating that the house is for sale by owner.
You must have the willingness to show your home when people are available to see it, whether that is by a private tour, open house, or both. Also, be certain to answer phone calls and email inquiries quickly or the buyer is sure to lose interest. You should print a basic purchase agreement in advance in case someone does make an offer on your home.
