Today is the wrap up for this series on how to sell your San Diego home without a Realtor. Today, I thought I would share my perspective on fsbo (for sale by owner) home sellers.
 
I am NOT a believer that one sales model fits all people or all situations. Like every other Realtor, I was taught NOT to take listings for no less than 5-6%, which is still the norm in San Diego.
 
I think the full service, full price model has its place. There are lots of home sellers who are busy people, and they just want someone else to handle the saale of … (0 comments)

Week 4 of your escrow, and any other weeks past this point are about finishing up business. With all contingencies removed, both buyer and seller can address the last issues of moving their respective households.

1) Whether the home is in the same condition as it was when the offer was signed
2) The repairs that the seller agreed to make

These contingencies must be removed by these dates in order to avoid default. The buyer or their agent  should send you a contingency removal form for each of these items.

Today's blog on How to Sell Your San Diego Home without a Realtor addresses real estate offers and counter offers.
