For Sale by Owner Guide
Guide for SellersSee all Seller Guide topics
The residential real estate market is changing to provide new ways of selling your home in addition to the traditional by owner and full-service agent methods. Each method has its pros and cons. Read below to get the information you need to make the choice that's best for you.
Selling your home yourself can require more effort, but the payoff is impressive. One million Americans will do it this year alone, saving an average of $6,000 in commission costs every time.
For many, saving thousands of dollars is the best reason to give selling by owner a try. By-owner sellers save the commission they would typically pay their own agent; plus, they often find buyers who are not represented by an agent, saving additional commission costs.
When you're in the driver's seat, you show your house when and how you want to, set your own price and handle the entire transaction the way that feels right to you. Using our powerful home marketing packages, you can sell by owner with confidence.
