How To Sell your Property Through FSBO

The sign that some property buyers like to see on the front lawn is the “for sale by owner”. This sign is a clear signal that the person selling the property is acting without expert help.

If that is your sign on the front lawn, be aware of expectations like this and be prepared to be a step ahead of those who are only out to get your property on the cheap.

Do your research in the real estate market and compare what the market is asking for homes like yours. A great starting point if you are in the Boston area is to look at what is being asked for homes and apartments in Boston. Research is crucial as you will be better informed about the prices that sellers of homes similar to yours are willing to accept and the costs buyers are willing to pay. You will avoid undervaluing your property and falling into the trap of unscrupulous buyers who will take advantage of your lack of awareness.

Get expert help from realtors in Boston in providing an analysis of the market that you can look at as well. A crucial indicator to watch is how long your home stays on the market before an offer is made. If you are like the majority of persons trying to sell their homes or properties themselves, you might be disheartened by the undue length of time that your property remains on the market without a single offer. If that happens, it could mean that your property is priced too high, or that it is in disrepair which you would need to quickly deal with in order for it to sell faster.

To avoid keeping your home too long on the market, unsold, you may also need the help of professionals to do a successful home staging for you. Although staging the home with the help of professional home stages is an additional cost, this will be well worth it when your property is sold faster after a successful staging. Staging involves arranging the home and DE-cluttering it of any accumulated possessions in an attractive way for showing to potential buyers. Of course you will also need to keep your home in pristine condition and be available every time a potential buyer shows up. If you do not have the time for this, you may have to arrange with someone, such as your spouse or partner, to share in home showing duties.

You can also take advantage of non-conventional ways to get buyer attention to your property, from posting on social media using expert photography, to holding viewing sessions or parties, to sweetening the deal with a valuable “throw in”, such as a brand new smart TV or a motor vehicle you are also selling. Whatever it takes for you to get your property sold, you can take comfort in the fact that when your property sells you do not have to pay commission fees to a real estate broker if you have not used any.
