SELLERS


As an alternative to working with an experienced real estate agent, you might consider selling your home yourself. When buyer see home "For sale by Owner", they see a bargain. They imagine Realtor fee is going in their pecket , not yours (Do you really save the Real Estate commission?)

Selling home on your own takes lot of Time, Energy and Work.

  • You need to have your own Marketing strategy.

  • Your own flyers or ads.

  • Time for showing your house.

  • Good negotiation skill.

At the end if the house do not sell, its a disaster.

Do your Homework:

  • Know your property: Find out about Tax,Zoning, lot size, square footage, terms of the existing loan, etc.

  • Do the Comparative Market analysis: Find out price for the simmilar property, term of sale and Law needed to take into consideration.

  • Set the price: Be realistic. Your first price is the best price.

  • Perform a “walk-through” of your property: Look at your property in terms of Buyers or Property Inspector. Take note of all items to be repaired or replaced.

 

Outside:

  • From the street, is the house appealing?

  • Does it need a new coat of paint (if the old paint is cracked or faded, and an uncommon choice in color that might turn off prospective buyers)?

  • If a house with a yard, is the lawn and landscaping attractive and well-kept?

  • If it is a condo, you can’t do much about the building, but is the front door (and balcony, if there is one) appealing?

  • Are the windows and doors attractive and in good condition?

  • Are the roof (and the gutters) in good condition?

  • Is the grass nicely cut, are the hedges trimmed, are the leaves swept up? Are all toys put away such as bikes etc?

Inside:

  • Are the interior paints and finishes in good condition (recently updated), or do they need to be freshened up? This is one area with the best ratio of least expensive to most desired. For a minimal investment, you could possibly make or break a sale by having your home look well-kept and inviting.

  • Are the appliances in good working order and of recent vintage?

  • Are the plumbing and electrical systems in good condition? Are they fully functional?

  • Are the carpets or other floor coverings clean and in good condition? Like the paint, are they attractive and well-kept? Floor coverings are worth paying for so that your home makes a good impression.

  • Are the sealants (sink, shower, tub, windows) in good condition?

  • Are all light fixtures working properly, and is there good lighting in each room so that prospective buyers won’t think you’re hiding something?

Make all repairs noted in your inspection.

  • Know your neighborhood: prospective buyers will want to know about the local schools, shopping, parks, transportation, etc. Be prepared so you can knowledgeably answer their questions.

  • Establish a marketing budget:

    • Real estate commission if you use an agency to sell.

    • Advertising costs, signs, other fees if you plan to sell by owner.

    • Attorney, closing agent and other professional fees.

    • Government sale Tax.

    • Prorated costs for your share of annual expenses, such as property taxes.

    • Any other fees typically paid by the seller in your area (surveys, inspections, etc.).

    • Real estate agents deal with transactions every day and can give you a very close estimate of seller closing costs.

  • Advertise in the local newspaper and websites: Various local news paper and different website will give more exposure to your property.
