The Carter Team's Thursday Trends: How to Sell Your Home without an Agent



If you ask anyone who has ever tried to sell their home themselves they'll tell you that from the moment the "For Sale by Owner" sign goes up, the phone begins to ring. Unfortunately, many of those calls will not be from prospective buyers, but rather from real estate agents looking to obtain your listing. Obviously, the idea of not having to pay a commission to a real estate agent is attractive to any home seller. But because of all the issues involved in the process, selling a home on one's own can be challenging as many home sellers will attest to. 


The key is to be properly prepared. If you are not, your home could remain on the market longer than you expect because you are not attracting and getting offers from qualified buyers. This can be a point where many homeowners become frustrated and consider giving up their dream of selling their homes themselves. However, there are sellers who accomplish selling their own homes, very well. You can be one of them. This industry report has been specially prepared to assist home sellers, such as yourself, understand the elements involved so you, on your own, can sell your home quickly and for the most amount of profit.



1. Price it Right


Correctly setting your asking price is critical. Setting your price too high can be as costly as setting it too low. Home prices are determined by fluctuations in the marketplace not by your emotional attachment or by what you feel your home is worth. In order to establish a realistic price for your home, objectively compare the price, features, and condition of all similar homes in both your neighborhood and other similar ones which have sold in recent months. It is also important for you to be familiar with the terms of each potential sale. Terms are often as important as price in today's market. Carefully budget your selling costs and prepare a net proceeds sheet to calculate your best estimate of what you will take away from your home sale. Prospective buyers may also request this kind of analysis of buying costs.


2. Prepare Your Home for Sale


The first impression is crucial. Make sure your home makes a positive statement by carefully inspecting all details and viewing it through the objective eyes of a buyer. Don't gloss over needed repairs and fix-ups, as your prospective buyers won't. Your job is to ensure that your home stands out favorably from the competition.


3. Prepare Yourself With All Necessary Legal Documentation


Not surprisingly, there are many important legal contracts and documents which you must assemble, complete, and understand. A partial checklist of forms that you will require for prospective buyers and for legal documentation is as follows:

 • Mortgage Payoff
 • Loan Application
 • Deposit Receipt
 • Property Profile Fact Sheet
 • Buyer's Cost Sheet
 • Closing & Settlement
 • Personal Property
 • Exclusion List
 • Property Survey
 • Sellers Statement /Plot Plan of Representation
