Congratulations on refusing to be a sheep and meekly agreeing to hand over a third of your home equity to a broker just to sell your home!
So what are the next steps to sell your home For Sale By Owner in New York City? We’ll explain in this article the immediate next steps you’ll need to follow to successfully sell your home without a traditional real estate broker.
Presenting your property listing in the best possible light and leaving buyers with a positive first impression is one of the most important steps you must follow when selling your home for sale by owner in NYC. You will be competing with traditional agent listings featuring professional real estate photography, so don’t expect buyers to pay top dollar or remember your listing over a professionally marketed listing if you snap photos of your home with a cell phone camera.
50% of home buyers won’t even visit your property before seeing a floor plan online. If you don’t already have one, we can have a custom floor plan professionally measured and drawn for you in 72 hours.
Pricing your home correctly is the most important factor to successfully selling your home FSBO in NYC. Price your home too high and you run the risk of your home sitting on the market for too long and losing confidence as buyers ignore your listing. Agent Managed Listing customers are eligible for a free Comparative Market Analysis of their home done by a Hauseit affiliate agent.
