The goal of every homeowner is to get the most money for the sale of their home, and for many, selling their home "FSBO", or For Sale By Owner seems at first glance to be the best way to achieve this goal. If you have decided that selling your home without a professional Realtor, how will you guarantee that you get the maximum value from the sale of your house?

There are numerous experts who advise against this approach. That has not dissuaded the 36% of homeowners nationally who attempt to sell their homes without a broker. For those DIYer's who are not afraid to make the foray into real estate sales by putting their home on the market, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) has this recommendation at their website, Realtor.com: 

"Aim to price your property at or just slightly below the going rate. Today’s buyers are highly informed, so if they sense they’re getting a deal, they’re likely to bid up a property that’s slightly underpriced, especially in areas with low inventory."

The homeowner who decides to FSBO should do their homework. The brief guide shown below offers potentially money saving tips to ensure a successful sale for a good price. Be sure to share this post with the friend, neighbor, or family member who says that they are planning to sell their home on their own
