Top 10 FSBO Tips | Negotiating as a FSBO | Don't Try This at Home

I have sold over 40 houses in which the owner was trying to sell on his own. People believe that selling a property on their own is a simple process.  The real estate market isn't quite as booming as it was a few years ago. Actually there is a surplus of property offerings on the market. On top of that, the sub prime crisis is contributing to a record of foreclosure filings in Westchester County. Foreclosure filings are up 39% from 2006.  According to the National Association of Realtors people that sell on their own get 16% less than selling with a realtor.

By using some simple FSBO (For Sale by Owner) tips and techniques, the average homeowner can sell his or her own home without the assistance of a real estate agent. Just as many others have done in the past.

You can sell your own home and save thousands, but it takes work and commitment.

These FSBO tips should give you a solid foundation to successfully selling your own home. There's many specific ideas and recommendations that are beyond the scope of this article when it comes to pricing, preparing and staging your home, and all of the items previously outlined.

You should definitely research and prepare yourself for the selling of your own home process. In the long run,it will make things easier and could either save you or even make you thousands of dollars.

Sellers who use a real estate professional make 16 percent more on the sale of their home than do sellers who go it alone.

Unrepresented sellers often do not understand the complexity, range and timing of tasks they will have to perform if they don’t use a professional.

REALTORS® can help a seller set a realistic price and ensure the proper paperwork and various disclosures and inspections are handled correctly. REALTORS® know best how to prepare a home and maximize value, provide broader exposure to the market and are more likely to generate multiple bids than a seller on their own.

After a buyer has expressed the desire to purchase a for-sale-by-owner's home, the negotiation starts.

As a For Sale by Owner, you are in a unique position to negotiate directly with the buyer
, providing you are not paying a buyer's agent fee.

If you are paying the agent who brings you a buyer, you will probably negotiate the offer contract with the agent.



When selling as a for sale by owner, it's prudent to obtain your own home inspection before putting the house on the market. This way you know what is wrong and can fix it or otherwise address it. Plus, you can give the buyer a copy of your home inspection, which the buyer might accept in-lieu-of hiring another inspector.

A real estate agent will not advise a buyer to accept your inspection, but unrepresented buyers won't know any better.
