FIRST STEPS:For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
Leveraging the Internet, many property owners adopt a "do it yourself" approach to selling their real estate.
Often, these homeowners are simply planning to market and sell their properties without paying a commission to a real estate broker.
You can also save money.
Because the seller will net more from the sale without the commission involved, it's possible that he or she will accept a lower offer than they would otherwise.
Contact the homeowner and deal with him or her directly. For your convenience, this contact information is located to your left under the property's "Seller/Listing Information" header.
However, you may need assistance with the paperwork to complete the transaction. Hiring an attorney, title company, or a real estate broker for a flat fee may save you several headaches down the road, ensuring that all the legal documents are completed properly.
