For Sale By Owner checklist: 8 Steps for FSBO

  1. Price your home.  Look at recent sales.  Make sure your square footage is correct when comparing to recent sales.
  2. Get your home ready to sell.  Clean.  Declutter.  Stage.
  3. Put out a sign.  http://amzn.to/2qAFDiZ $16 on Amazon.  Put your phone number, email and a website on the sign.
  4. Make an extra key and put it in a lockbox on the front door.  http://amzn.to/2rEsIwH  $23 on Amazon.

  6. Put it on Zillow as a For Sale By Owner.

  8. Schedule an open house through the MLS and Zillow.
