Each year thousands of Americans will challenge the real estate community and save themselves thousands of dollars by selling their homes themselves.
No one can guarantee that selling your home on your own will be easy, or that it will be hassle-free — it rarely is even when you enlist the help of a real estate professional. But the simple fact is that many people have successfully sold their home on their own and you can do it too.
This is the first of a series of articles that I will share with you for the purpose of giving you the knowledge and tools you need to succeed in today’s lukewarm real estate market, and to give you the competitive edge you need to „out-market“ not only the other „For Sale by Owners“ in your neighborhood, but also the real estate agents who want you to list your home with them.
Please understand that other „For Sale by Owner“ sellers and real estate agents are your competition, and in order to be successful on your own you need to have a detailed marketing plan in place to find the right buyer for your home.
If you have the knowledge, if you can learn the required marketing expertise, and if you understand the process of selling your home on your own, then you will have a better than average chance to do just that, and can literally save thousands of dollars in real estate commissions.
One thing you need to understand right from the beginning is that the only difference between you and a real estate agent, or another „For Sale by Owner“, is knowledge; if you have it and they don’t you’ll attract all the buyers you’ll ever need to sell your home for top dollar in a short period of time.
The second important thing for you to understand when you’re trying to sell your own home is that you can do it. You can get your home sold inside of 90 days in a decent real estate market. It all comes down to understanding and implementing a few key procedures that I will discuss in upcoming articles.
One other simple thing you need to understand is that your home will almost sell itself, or not sell itself, based on it’s own merits of price and condition. If you get both correct, and you are able to let enough people know about it, your home will sell. However, if the price or condition is not in line, or nobody know about your house, your home has no chance of selling (and that applies even if you have a real estate agent involved).
Another important thing you need to realize is that there is a buyer for your home out there. You bought the home yourself and that means that there are others who have similar tastes and similar housing requirements as you do.
These people will automatically be attracted to your property. If you are aware of this fact and you realize that, like anything in sales, that it’s definitely a numbers game, then you’re well on your way to selling your home yourself.
