For Sale By Owner

Well it’s time, you’ve decided it’s time to sell. You’ve already been to home depot and bought a sign for the front yard, FOR SALE BY OWNER. That’s fine, but do you know what will keep you legal, safe, and successful in selling? Here are a few tips to sell your home on your own in Lancaster County Pa.

  1. Sellers Disclosure- Fill this out completely and honestly, it could come back to haunt you
  2. Lead based paint addendum-For homes built prior to 1976, this is a must have.
  3. Qualify your callers who want to see the home, don’t be a pop-tart seller, don’t jump for everything that moves or calls.
  4. When someone does make an offer, be sure to fill out the dates correctly. Misplacing or not filling out  these dates can cause some real heartache and trouble.
  5. Consider what the buyer needs to do to be able to buy your home. Do they need to sell first, do they have the money ready, are they pre-qualified, have they been employed long enough, who is their lender, and why are they buying?
These may seem elementary, but they will keep you somewhat on track.  This is the tip of the iceberg, there is a lot more detail to think of, if you would like a full picture of what to expect, call me. 717-538-3910
