Marketing a For Sale By Owner Home

Marketing a For Sale By Owner Home
By LaToya Irby

When you sell your own house, as opposed to using a realtor, you are responsible for the work entailed with the home sale. This includes pricing the home and advertising the home. If you have never sold a home before, you might have difficulty with the steps involved. Many home sellers find that marketing their home is one of the hardest parts about selling their own home.

If you want people to make offers on the home you have for sale, you must first let them know that you have real estate in Alabama for sale. There are several ways you can do this. The most traditional way is to put a sign in your yard stating the home is for sale. You can take it a step further and also place signs around the neighborhood. The drawback to this method is that it does not reach a lot of people. The only people who will be exposed to this method of advertising are those that drive through your neighborhood. Even if you live in a high traffic area, this won’t amount to a large number of people.

Another option you have for marketing your home for sale by owner is by placing an advertisement in the newspaper. By placing an ad in the newspaper, you are increasing exposure. This method alerts more people that your home is for sale. The best day to run your ad is on Sunday. While Sunday ads cost more, more people purchase Sunday papers than any other day.

A final method you can use for marketing the home you have for sale is through use of a for sale by owner website. A website of this kind allows you to list your home similar to the way you would list it in a newspaper. This method is perhaps the most effective because it reaches a larger number of prospective homebuyers both in and out of your state.
