Selling by Owner is a Lot of Work

Putting a sign in the front yard works well if you live on a busy street and also do other advertising.

We Buy Houses Cash – McClellanville SC: You may want to sell your house on your own. You don’t want to pay the commission of a real estate agent and you think you can give the appropriate attention needed to the buyers. You’ll show the house when someone wants to see it and you can easily do comps of the neighborhood homes for sale to get the price right. Is that all there is to it?

Well, not really. There’s a lot more to selling a house than that. Those are the basic things that you will have to do. You will also need a serious marketing plan to get the word out that you are selling your house. It’s a great house, but no one will know it’s for sale unless you market to spread the word. Putting a sign in the front yard works well if you live on a busy street and also do other advertising. A sign in your yard if you live on a cul de sac or small and quiet street might not get much attention.

You can try listing the house with an FSBO site that handles those homes that are being sold by their owners. You can upload your excellent photo shots and videos of your house to this site as most of them have provision for media activity on the listings. Write a killer description for the house including any unique features you have installed or are in the neighborhood that might be of interest.

If there’s a coffee house within walking distance, you will want to say so. Add in all of the pertinent details about the systems in the house and the square footage, bedrooms and sizes, bathrooms and sizes, basement, finished or not, garage, attached or not, and any other outbuildings or useful information you can think of.The price will need to right the first time you list it. Changes price is an option, of course, but is strategically undesirable.

It is not good to change your price once you have stated your asking price. If you drop it the viewers may determine that someone found a flaw and backed out, thus your drop in price to accommodate the flaw. True or not, that’s a though pattern of buyers that you must keep in mind.If this is all too much work, call an investor to see what he or she will offer you for the house. They can pay cash and buy it in a week. That’s much less work. They handle everything.
