For Sale By Owner (FSBO) | Save Many $$$ From Those Agent Fees

Selling your home buy yourself, not a problem, it happens all the time and it is increasingly more prevalent today. Listing on Zillow, Craigslist, Facebook and many others is a great way to do it – but you need to be well informed prior to listing your property because the initial price amount you’re asking for is crucial.

Let me help you by providing an Appraisal Report that you can keep to yourself, or present as a tool to potential buyers which also can increase your creditability is the asking price.

Getting a qualified Licensed Appraiser (Me) will establish your foothold in your neighborhood with a certified report.

Emotion is a big factor when selling your home, so when like this there is a certain amount of apprehension when it comes to setting the crucial asking price, very understandable.  You decide on a price after thinking about all you’ve put into it, or perhaps a price you NEED to get, but a market value (sale price) of a home is what a willing Seller and a willing potential Buyer agree to on any given day. Therefore, the sales price is the actual value of your home.

An Appraisal Report by an independent and impartial Appraiser (Me) will result in a value (asking price) that a potential willing Buyer will pay for your property based on similar, comparable recent sales within your area, with no emotional consideration. That is what Appraisers do.

The present market situation is seeing more and more homeowners selling off their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) without the intervention of a real estate agent to escape the noose of a potential “hefty” commission to (industry average is 2.7-7% of the home’s selling price) the agent. Not having to deal with a “middle man” also puts the seller all in control of his property which he feels he best knows.

By listing your home by yourself you’re avoiding A Real Estate Agent who, granted, will provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) which is not certified while keeping her/his own interests in mind, it’s only natural, but more importantly you are saving potentially $18,000 +/- in commissions on the sale of a $300,000 home.
