Tip number 1

Put a for sale by owner sign in your yard. Pretty obvious but believe it or not some folks do not do it.

Tip number 2

Put directional signs at the intersections closest to your home

Tip number 3

Flyer boxes and flyers. Put a flyer with a list of your homes featured properties and the price.

Tip number 4 

List your home on the many free websites available on the internet. According to the National Association of Realtors 90% of home searches begin on the internet.

Tip number 5

Newspaper ads are expensive but if done strategically can be sometimes be effective. Tip number 6

Put informational flyers at your local restaurants, stores, etc.

Tip number 7

Open houses can be an effective method for for sale by owners. the key is having strategically placed signs and advertising.

Tip number 8

Make sure all your friends and relatives are aware you are selling your home

Tip Number 9

First impressions are lasting impressions. Your property needs curb appeal or buyers will get a bad impression before they even get into your house.

Tip Number 10

Have a friend do a sniff test of your house. I have walked into homes that reeked of pet odor or smoke. Big turn off and will make prospects quickly leave the home.

Tip Number 11

De-clutter. It is impossible for your house to show well if the walls and table tops are filled up with pictures and personal items.

These are just a few things you can do if you are trying to for sale by owner. We wish you the best of luck and if it does not work out for you we would appreciate the opportunity to apply for the job of selling your house.
