We all know that times are kinda tough for many people right now. I get that. But, you sort of have to pick and choose WHEN you should, or should not, seek the advice of a professional.
If you are mechanically inclined, you might be able to put the new fan belt on your car. (I'll pass)
If you like sweating, you might consider mowing that 3/4 acre lot with that push mower. (Ok, I have a professional grade machine)
If you think you can stick the scalpel in the right place you might operate on yourself. (Have you seen the commercial where the doctor is giving instructions over the phone to his patient)
Along these same lines, you might think, "Hey, how hard can it be to sell my own house?" Well, this might be one of those times you DON'T want to skip on the professional help.
In this two part series, let me give you some of the tools or steps you will need to Sell Your Home WITHOUT a real estate Agent:
1) Find a real estate attorney (crap, you are already looking for a professional) and one that hopefully knows real estate to help you with the contract, forms and other paperwork necessary to sell your home.
2) Pull out your Vendor list so you have a title insurance company, termite inspection, home inspector, and probably a home owners insurance agent ready to assist.
3) Complete a Seller's Disclosure Statement. (Might have to refer back to #1)
4) Develop your Marketing Plan and budget to attract the right buyers for your home. Be sure to include your schedule to use social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, blogging and others to get the message out that your home is For Sale.
5) Consider placing an ad in the local neighborhood newspaper to assist in finding that "right buyer."
6) Head to your local bookstore (hurry one of the biggies is going out of business) and pick up some books on how to sell your home. This will make for some good bedtime reading.
In the second part of this series, I'll finish up the other things you will need to get you to the closing table and have you packing your moving van. (Both on the same day...that should be fun!)
However, if you've already got cold feet about being your own real estate agent, give me a call or contact me here, and I'll save you these steps, reading the second part of this series and a whole host of other things.
Anything about Intown Atlanta Real Estate you wanted to know but were afraid to ask, or didn't know WHO to ask....you have come to the right place. And if we don't know we WILL get the answer! So WHAT IS Intown Atlanta?
There are many definitions, but let's just say anything inside I-285, or "Inside the Perimeter - ITP" is Intown Atlanta! There are many neighborhoods, from Buckhead, to Brookhaven, Morningside, Midtown, and Midtown West, to actual cities like Decatur, Chamblee, and Doraville.
I work with BOTH Buyers and Sellers. If you are looking for the best Internet Marketing, or a broker that knows the Intown Atlanta area, then you HAVE come to the right place!
