Technology can be our worst enemy, especially when you are counting on it the most. Some of the  most memorable times my computer, printer, or Internet quit working on me have been when paying bills, submitting a paper for college, writing a 10 page paper the night before it is due, printing forms for a client, and of course during some pretty intense gaming. All of these are very legitimate reasons to hate using computers, but don’t give up hope. There is a very strong place for the use of computers, printers, and the Internet. Especially when selling your home on your own.

If you are looking to sell your own home, commonly referred to as FSBO, For Sale By Owner, you need to utilize the web. According to the National Realtor Association, "real-estate related searches have increased 253% over the past four years on Google." I have read from various sources that anywhere from 50%-80% of people find the home they purchase using the Internet. What should this tell you? That you HAVE to get your property online as much as possible.  If you are are selling FSBO you have a couple different options for getting your property on the web. You can use Facebook, Twitter, Google+, the social networks, and then there are websites.

Google does offer a very easy to use DIY website resource. The problem with making your own site is how will people find it? It is worth every penny to invest in a FSBO service provided in your area.  Home buyers know of these sites and visit them frequently, it gives them a central hub to find homes for sale by owner.  These businesses will do more than just list your house, they will take pictures,  have yard signs, give you access to pre-made flyers, and some will also provide social network sharing tools.

So if you are looking find how to sell your home you need to get your house on the web for maximum exposure.
