How to Sell Your Own Home

  1. Place an ad in your local newspaper. Always include the area of town the price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms. These are the most important considerations for a buyer.
  2. Design a Flyer or Brochure for your property. A black and white photo and description of the home is important.
  3. Know at least three different methods available to finance the sale of your home. Assumable loan, seller financing, variable rate loan, adjustable rate loan and a fixed rate loan are good examples. Buyers want to know the total cash down payment, including closing costs, and monthly payments.
  4. Know your current annual taxes and homeowners insurance premium amounts. Are they paid from a reserve account or by some other method?
  5. What are the current interest rates and points on fixed and adjustable rate loans?
  6. Consider having an appraisal done on your home to determine the current value. Buyers typically offer less than you are asking because they know savings of the commission is often built into the price. You are trying to save the commission, and so are they. You need to know what Fair Market Value is.
  7. When a prospective buyer visits your home, follow these guidelines:
      • Set appointments at their convenience.

        Always prepare the home before it is shown, even if you have to leave work to do it.
