Tips and advice on how to market your home when doing it alone as a FSBOWith the decreasing inventory of homes currently for sale in Lakeland Florida, I see quite a few signs popping up that reads “For Sale By Owner”.    I am writing this article because I just want to offer you some help and guidance. 

I understand that you might be hesitant to list with a REALTOR(R) because you may want to save on the commission or you may even had a bad experience with an agent. I do respect your decision trying to sell your home as a for sale by owner.

I would be happy to provide you with a free neighborhood analysis.  This analysis will give you a good idea of what is currently on the market, has gone under contract, has not sold or has sold within recent months. 

If you would like I can preview your home – free of charge – to see where your home’s appearance can improve, explaining what to fix or replace that improve your profit before selling.  

Marketing your Lakeland FL home is key and taken photographs should be taken seriously.  Most home buyers begin home search online. Buyers love lots of great pictures. Consider hiring a photographer to create a virtual tour and advertise the virtual tour link in your marketing materials.  All the marketing should be targeted toward making your phone ring. 

Advertise on sites like, Craig’s list, Zillow, Trulia and put a home video on YouTube.  With the money you’ll be saving on the commission over hiring an agent, I encourage you to mail out oversized four-color postcards.  Local printing companies may even have a mail list to target the buyers you want to reach.  

Selling real estate is complex and can be very confusing.  Once you find a buyer, I would be happy to connect you with Title Companies and mortgage brokers that can help you and your buyer through this process.
