If you are selling your home for sale by owner then do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I am here as a resource if you need me!

Have you decided to sell your home on your own, For Sale by Owner (FSBO)? The process of selling your home FSBO can be very empowering and rewarding when resulting in a sale. However it can also be very confusing, time-consuming and stress-inducing. You have to prepare the home to sell, market the home, effectively price the home, negotiate the sale and make sure you are filling out the proper paperwork. It is also important that you hire a real estate attorney, title insurance company, inspector, etc to help with the process. Unfortunately there are drawbacks to selling FSBO such as: incurring legal liability due to paperwork being filled out improperly, receiving a lower sale price due to lack of negotiation or improper pricing or having a hard time finding a buyer. Buyer's agents may not show a home that is not paying full commission.

How can I help?

• If you are up to the task of selling FSBO and need help...please contact me.

• I can help you price your home by providing you with a free Community Market Analysis to help you decide the correct price for your home. (Your home should be priced according to the SOLD price of the homes around you in the last 6 months)

• I can recommend various professionals to help with the process such as real estate attorneys, inspectors, etc.

• I can also give suggestions on how to prepare your home to sell, how to stay within the time restraints after a contract has been expected and how to utilize and fill out essential paperwork.
