Chances are, you are reading this blog looking for tips, suggestions, and ways to sell FSBO (for sale by owner.) Not only will you learn how to sell your home on your own, but you will learn how to pay yourself tens of thousands of dollars.

We sold our own home in 10 days; I will share with you the secrets and tips we used to sell our personal home fast. Selling our home in just 10 days was awesome, and the hard work we had put into the upkeep of our home over the previous 7 years had finally paid off. We did spend weeks preparing our home for sale though before actually listing it.

The first hurdle we had to overcome was deciding if the time was right to sell. My wife and I had many talks whether or not we were ready to sell. We knew if we were not ready to jump into the FSBO market head first, we would never be successful selling our home.

My wife and I then spent two weeks deep cleaning our house from top to bottom, items such as; kitchen cupboards, window seals, closets, walls, ceiling fan blades, patio, gutters, and everything in between. As homeowners wanting to sell FSBO, we really wanted to make the most out of our pictures and really have them pop.  This is hard work in the bag for when it comes time to show your home.

For the entire FSBO process the most time we dedicated was to the pricing of our home. These talks had been on and off over the 7 years of owning our home to make sure all of our improvements did not exceed our house value. The month before selling our house we really started to study what our house was worth and wanted to get the most for our house, yet sell quickly. This is the most important item when selling a home. Do your homework, and it will pay off financially and avoid stress by not allowing your house to sit on the market for months.

These are a few simple steps to get you well on your way to selling your own home. If possible in your area, locate a reputable FSBO business and look into multiple companies so you are not getting cheated out of money or given poor service. Follow our Pinterest board, Showing Your Home, for tips on how to talk with potential buyers, and sell your home when these buyers arrive at your front door.
