How To Sell A House For Sale By Owner


A Smarter Way To Sell Your Home

You should not have to pay expensive fees to sell your home competitively. We're a zero commission, agent-less real estate marketplace on a mission to save sellers time and money. We've developed proprietary technology and a radically simplified sale process that gets your property noticed and makes buyers compete.


How does OfferMarket Compare To For Sale by Owner (FSBO)?

Selling your home For Sale By Owner (FSBO) can be very appealing. Not paying a listing agent's brokerage fees can save you 3% and not paying a buyer agent's fees can save you another 3%. That's thousands of dollars in your pocket!


But For Sale By Owner comes with some major drawbacks. Many For Sale By Owner listings end up selling considerably lower than if you were to list with an agent on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). For Sale By Owner comes with all of the extra work you would otherwise have an agent do for you. This includes pricing the listing, listing the property, coordinating showings, reviewing offers, negotiating, coordinating paperwork, following up with the title company and buyer/buyer's agent


If you want to sell your home without any help, here are some things you need to consider:

  • How to sell your home without an agent -- where are you going to list it? how will buyers find you?
  • How to value your home -- what is the correct listing price?
  • How to review offers and contracts (Purchase And Sale Agreement) -- how do you qualify buyers?
  • How to negotiate with buyers and avoid being taken advantage of
  • How to coordinate closing with a title company or attorney

Or, you can sell with OfferMarket and sit back while we bring you offers.
