The Best Defense is a Good Offense

When market conditions are slow -- a buyerless buyers market -- here are a few things sellers can do:

  • Post your home for sale on Zillow
  • Contact a mortgage broker and inquire about a For Sale by Owner (FSBO) program that generates buyers
  • Educate yourself about potential financing options for your potential buyers. A seller can really make their home standout with the right terms of financing
  • Do hire a real estate expert -- a real professional who knows the market.
  • Don't hire your brother's wife's sister unless she is a real estate expert/
  • Post your home for sale in the MLS.
