So You Too Wish To Be A Realtor? Alright, not the place for sarcasm; nobody in their right mind would wish to become a Realtor. I’m a Houston Heights Realtor. I’ve marketed Houston Inner Loop homes for 15 years and have sold or helped sell a number of homes between Houston for sale by owner. Selling on your own is hard. I am hoping that the tips I have picked up over the years can help.
There are lots of reasons for selling your property yourself. Some who make sense; a few that do not make sense. I have even taken this path myself, with mixed results. I’m a do-it-yourselfer, therefore I understand that also, maybe that is a driving force for you. Well, allow me to give you a couple of tips. I’ll then follow up in another article with my adventures using FSBO’s. Notice: I thought I’d dash off 10 hints and be finished with that. That did not work. There were a lot of ideas; a lot of encounters. 10 suggestions turned into 15, then 20. You can find more, but you need to stop someplace.
This can be just one of 3 articles written to assist Houston For Sale By Owners (FSBO’s)
Part 1: Tips for Houston FSBO’s (For Sale By Owner)
Part 2: My Adventures with FSBO’s. Tales of Woe and Tales of Success
Part 3: Selling Vacant Lots and Tear-Downs Yourself
Ultimately, you will find people & businesses set up specifically to help FSBO’s. I really don’t know a lot about them except that they could supply flyers, signs, place on MLS, etc. If you’re going to pay for all this, then you could also employ a complete service Realtor.
Well, that is my advice – my top 20 tips for helping For-Sale-By-Owners. I wrote it fast and did not cover everything, but hopefully it is helpful. It is not designed as a sales pitch, but obviously I’d really like to assist you sell your home in case you really do get tired of marketing it yourself. I’ll even offer free advice. I used to work in my own car (I told you I had been a verified do-it yourselfer). I had a buddy who had been a mechanic. He’d offer free easy advice. He knew however, once I got frustrated or botched up something, I’d bring the car to him. I make the identical offer to “for sale by owner”. Straightforward ideas and opinions will assist you along. If you figure out how to sell it I will be glad for you. If you don’t sell it, perhaps you’ll think about using my services.
