Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

One thing that many people look to do when selling a home is save on paying realtor fees. These fees can be thousands of dollars and especially when selling high value homes they can easily jump into the tens of thousands of dollars bracket. The good news is that you can in fact sell a home without using a realtor but you will need my help to do it so please continue reading this article for more information. I will go through a couple of things you have to do when selling a home by yourself.

How to sell a home by yourself – step 1

The first thing you have to know is no one is going to bid on the house you want to sell if they do not even know it’s available. Many people will elect to erect a sign in front of the home but this is much like banner advertising and no one really pays any attention to these things. A more effective way fo marketing your house is by simply posting a listing of it on the internet.

The way some of these listing sites work is that they provide a kind of searching query thing. Someone who is looking to buy a house will go to the site and enter their details including where the house should be etc. Once they get there and find your house and see the beautiful pictures your posted on the house they will want to see it and there you have some prospective buyers for a small fee which maybe at the most about $100 or $200 or something.

How to sell a home by yourself – step 2

You will need to take a good picture of your home when you want to sell it because it is the first impression that a potential buyer is going to have of your home when they see it online. So get a good camera and take some nice pictures of your home and then post them with the listing online or post them after you have created the listing online. The choice is yours. Ideally, you will want to take the picture when the weather is really nice and when it really flatters the house.

How to sell a home by yourself – step 3

This is one of the most basic things about selling a home but you will be surprised at how many people simply do not clean up the place when they are selling a home. Declutter the place really because it will make it look like there is more space. You will also want to mow the lawns and trim the hedges so that people see the home at its best. It is not gonna cost a lot to do but the benefits can be immense and can even be in the tune of tens of thousands of dollars.

So in conclusion the first thing you want to do is get an online listing for the house you want to sell by yourself. Letting people know that the house is available is the only way you are going to make sure you get a lot of offers.
