The selling and buying of real estate can be a complex and time-consuming process. Whether you are buying a U.S. For Sale By Owner property or selling one, RealtyTrac can guide you with legal, financial and real estate knowledge needed to sell or buy FSBO homes.
RealtyTrac allows you to post and market your home — as a FSBO — to expose it to the millions of buyers and investors who visit the site each month. If you’re planning to sell your home yourself, your primary motivation is probably to save money on real estate commissions. And you can save thousands of dollars if you sell your home as a FSBO.
Homeowners who put their property up for sale by owner must, however, be aware of the legal rules that govern real estate transfers in the state in which they live, such as who must sign the papers, who can conduct the actual sales transaction, what material facts must be disclosed, and what to do if and when encumbrances appear that slow down the transfer of ownership.
A Custom Market Analysis (CMA) represents the best way to obtain comprehensive and reliable home-value data. The CMA calculates the market value of a home based on extensive information about the home and the neighborhood, including comparable home sales, local schools performance and neighborhood demographics. Knowing the right price to sell your home is very important.
RealtyTrac offers the industry’s most comprehensive and accurate CMA report for properties nationwide. You can obtain this report for free through a member of the RealtyTrac Agent Network, who will be able to help you interpret and analyze the report. Or you can get the report instantly for just $19.95. Order a CMA home value report now.
Sellers should have little problem handling the entire house sale transaction without a real estate agent — assuming sellers are willing to master a reasonable amount of detail. RealtyTrac provides you with all the tools and services you need to successfully post and sell your home on our site.
