Listing your home "for sale by owner," or FSBO, can save an average of $10,000 in real estate commissions. That's why everyone's doing it. In 2005, over 2.25 million sold their home "by owner." Online FSBO options also are accelerating: In 2003, an astonishing 840,000 FSBOs used online listing services. And that rate is accelerating.For years, the For Sale By Owner Kit has been a must-have resource, filled with essential checklists, sales forms, and sample ads designed to simplify the entire home selling process. Now fully updated, this sixth edition includes tips on:* "Staging" a home to maximize its appeal.* Pricing a home for quick sale.* Managing all the necessary, but complicated, paperwork.* Writing an air-tight, carefully worded sales agreement.* Hiring fee-for-service agents.Several entirely new chapters discuss handling disclosures and inspections fairly and honestly; getting full-service agents to work with you; and, most important, a detailed discussion on online home listings.
