If you are looking to buy a home or looking to sell a home, there are a few tips you should no about. First of all, this one happens to be helpful to people who are buying or selling. Whenever you are listing your house on the market always list it a little bit higher than what you really want for it. This way when someone makes an offer that is a little bit lower, they are really hitting on the number you really want. This makes bargaining a lot easier and friendlier. Now if you are looking to buy a home you may ask, well how does this help me? Whenever you go to buy a home always offer a little bit lower than the asking price. This is because more than likely they have jacked up the price just for that same reason, and they are willing to come down a little bit. Some people pay for the amount on the house, and they end up losing a lot of money. Do not let that happen to you.

The next tip I am going to give to you is the fact that if it’s at all possible you need to try and sell your own home. Trying to get someone else to sell your home for you is going to cost you a lot of money. It is a sad think whenever a lot of the money you get for selling your house goes to someone else. That means that you are going to have to put a higher asking price on the house to make sure you still get out of it what you need. Then you are looking at less people making a offer on the house because it costs to much. This helps out the people that are looking at buying a house as well. If you see someone that is looking to sell a house themselves that could save you money. This is because you are not looking at having to pay extra money to pay off the person that had the house on the market to begin with.

These are just a few of the many tips that you can use to help get your house off the market quickly. There is always a lot of people out there looking to buy a house. It could someone that is looking to buy for the first time. No matter what it is you have to make sure that you get the house that you want. And if you are selling a house you need to make sure you get the money for it that you want. No one wants to lose any money here, and this goes for the people that are buying or selling. This is a market that can be full of people looking to take advantage of people that do not know what they are doing. Do not let yourself be one of those people. Get out there and get the house that you want today.

    I practiced real estate law for 20 years and now as a Realtor I see FSBO’s making mistakes all the time to their detriment. Honestly, sometimes real estate agents are not any better at marketing. The only thing I can do to help is to educate. Any suggestions?

    I agree that nobody knows a home better than the seller. The problem most FSBO sellers face is generating exposure. The best solution for this is to find a FSBO marketing service that can help generate exposure. Do not just choose any FSBO marketing service. Choose a service that will generate the best exposure. As a FSBO seller I would start by marketing my home on as many FREE FSBO websites as possible because many FSBO websites share data.

    Once you place your home on the numerous websites available you must be ready to answer the phone all the time.

    Every road has it’s potholes but you can get to the end just the same. Of course home sellers should do their homework and even have a “team” that can help them through the paperwork. They don’t have to make mistakes if they do their homework.
    Exposure is the key and no one site can give you all the exposure you need these days. Look to a site that offers to put you on multiple sites, the more the better.
