Here are two quick pieces of advice from a FSBO Conversion specialist for sellers who are trying to sell their home as a For-Sale-By-Owner.
Don't leave bags of leaves or trash in your yard or side yard. It's a distraction and it's ugly. Leave them in the garage or anywhere as long as they're out of sight from potential buyers.
Also, make sure to ask for a loan pre-approval letter from a buyer who makes an offer. If they can't provide one, beware!!! Any serious buyer who makes an offer on a house should already be pre-approved. If they aren't pre-approved, tell them to go get pre-approved immediately.
