    Tips for FSBO Sellers

    Avoid These Common FSBO Mistakes When
    Selling Your Home Online

    There are many reasons homeowners decide to forgo the real estate agent and
    list their home for sales as an FSBO (For Sale by Owner). FSBO sellers can utilize
    many of the same national real estate websites used to showcase property online.
    Most homebuyers start their house search online, so the online listing must
    showcase the home to generate offers. To sell quickly, one must avoid the
    common mistakes home sellers make online.

    • Cell Phone Photos – Invest in professional photography. Pictures are the
    first thing buyers notice and poor-quality shots will prevent the buyer from
    noticing the home or even setting up a showing.
    • Responding Slowly – When a potential buyer reaches out, they expect a
    prompt response. Catching buyers quickly is the best way to move the
    buying process into the next stage of setting an appointment.
    • Not Paying for Exposure – Regardless of the platform, there is an option to
    boost the listing to get featured exposure. The fee is a small price to pay to
    ensure more potential buyers see the home first when they search for
    properties.
    • Poor Grammar and Misspellings – Always double-check listing information
    is accurate, clearly explained, and written with proper grammar and
    spelling.
    • Listing on Only One Platform – More exposure only means more views.
    Consider all the major real estate platforms and use them all.

    Selling a home without a real estate agent involves more effort by the
    homeowner. The homeowner needs to be at every showing, and figure out how
    to write the contract. It certainly is not for everyone. If you are an FSBO seller and
    ready to let a real estate agent take over, contact us today!
