Selling your home yourself
Nowadays, a lot of people are doing business in the real estate area. One of the businesses is buying and
selling house. The Real estate agent who will take charge of his or her services for about 2-6% home often
takes this buying and selling home activity. People usually sell the home with the help of real estate agent
because they want their home to be sold fast. Maybe you will think that you want to sell your home by
yourself in order to save more money into your account because the money will not be cut down to the third
party such as real estate agent.
Selling your home by yourself is not a difficult task to do if you know how to sell your house by yourself
with a good strategy and know the steps to sell your house immediately. But, selling your home yourself
demand lots of your time. Why is that? Because you have to do more survey on price and more work to
“clean up” your house before the selling process.
Selling your home yourself is as easy as 1,2,3 and you will see that you can also sell your home yourself.
Before you start to sell, you have to set your mind that you can sell your home by yourself.
If you already set your mind, the next steps can be lot more easily. First thing that you have to do is “clean
up” your house and make your house looks spacious. Every buyer always searches for a clean, neat, tidy,
and spacious home. You have to make your home look great and attractive. You can start by identify your
home defects and make some extra work to do to your home such as cut the grass, remove all clutter,
scoring your home from top to bottom, makes some little improvement even if that seem unimportant to you
such as planting flowers, fixing broken tiles, trimming tree, and make sure that your home smells good, and
other repairments and improvements here and there.
After you “prepare” your home, you should also set a reasonable price in selling your home. You do not
want to set the price too little or over estimate that will reduce your potential buyers. You can find
information about the price of the home, that similar to your home, in newspapers, advertisements, or you
could ask some professionals advices to price your home.
The last step to do is to market your home. Selling your home by yourself can be an interesting work to do
but can also make you frustrated if your home is not sold for the time that you have predicted. If your
marketing strategy is good, you will have your home sold only by weeks. You can start by making a good
advertisement on your house appearance and add your ads into a newspaper or magazine that has a
particular field in buying or selling house.
You can also make an open house. Open house is an attractive ways to attract buyers. And do not forget to
make flyers of your house so that the buyers can bring your home brochure with them.
