What a fantastic link! Thank you!
As a young potential home buyer. It's very odd looking at homes right now. I remember when my parents bought their home; they made a list of what was available; looked at them all, and chose one. My DF and I can drive around a neighborhood all day seeing new houses; meeting realtors. There are 100's of homes in our price range and in good neighborhoods. I say this just to communicate the buyers side.
You can sell the home yourself; but you won't have the benefit of a realtor website; neutral open houses (it's uncomfortable being shown the house by the owner; they are obviously partial), etc.
What would make us buy a home from the owner?
- Great Price
- Lots of paperwork to see (same as with a realtor)
- Well organized open house(s)
- Clearly marked property lines
- Some type of visibility, either via a website or ? (we have to know the house is for sale without directly driving by it)
