How do you sell your home on your own?
First of all, you should know that doing this doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to make more money. A lot of people assume that if they don’t hire an agent and don’t have to pay a commission fee, they’ll make more money, but there are plenty of savvy buyers out there who know how to take advantage of FSBOs.
That’s why it’s important that you do it the right way. By this, I mean there are certain steps you need to take and factors to take into consideration. For your convenience, I’ve provided timestamps of each of these steps from the video above so you can skip ahead at your leisure:
