Before I dive into the fun and legal perks of selling FSBO, I thought I would share this article from CNNMoney with you. It fits into our “Why Sell FSBO Blog,” and will give you another reason to sell your own home.

This brief article states the National Realtors Association released information saying annual home sales are up 2% as of October, and that includes the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Two percent may not sound like a lot, but there are a few ways to look at this. One, when you are looking at the number of homes sold annually in the mid to high 4 million unit range a small percentage actually means a lot of houses changing owners.

Secondly, this really excites me because it shows people are buying more homes across the nation! CNNMoney believes this could be attributed for several reasons including a rise in supply and demand coupled with the continuation of mortgage rates declining. I knew I should have held out for a lower mortgage rate back in May, damn.

Take this as gentle dose of confidence when selling your home, and be patient. Buying a home is a major transaction for people. They have every right to take their time and see which home is best for them. Now if you have a delightful aroma of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies in your house, it may help persuade them a little faster. Have fun with selling your home, and if you have any questions feel free to ask through my blog comment section.
