According to the National Association of Realtors® annual report, only eight percent of recent home sales were FSBO sales in 2016. For the second year, this is the lowest share recorded since this report started in 1981. Recent studies have also shown that 92% of buyers search online for a home.
I have an internet strategy to promote the sale of your home not just placing a for sale sign. If you are contemplating in selling your home on your own, you may want to consider whether you really want to put your family's safety at risk? By you trying to sell your home on your own, you are opening up your home to total strangers. You don't know if this individual is really just staking out your home to come back at another time to burglarize the place or something even worse. You also don't know if this person is a serious buyer or just a looky-loo. Conversely, if buyer is already qualified for a loan and can afford to buy your home.
