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

How to Price a home in this market

I get the question a lot, how should we price our home in this market? Well this might be bitter tasting medicine, but this is not the time to price your home at a price that you could be fishing for someone in a different pond. I’m won’t tell you what to do when we price your home, but I will tell you what I think.

“People looking for  a size twelve don’t look in the size 8 shoe rack”

Price your home competitively, if your home has 10 similar competitors on the market, you should at least be in the top three if you would like to sell your home in a reasonable amount of time. When things really get under way in a few weeks, you don’t want to be left on the shore when the boat leaves.

This spring should be a great market, I’ve been running like crazy getting people ready to buy and sell in the coming months. Probably about double the amount I had this time last year. I’m confident this spring will start with a bang in our real estate market.
