Selling Your Home By Yourself

There's More to Selling Your Home than a "For Sale" Sign In Your Front Yard: Beware.

Even if a simple sign in your yard did produce a buyer knocking on your door, how will you handle the following questions:

"How does your home compare to others like it in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Tempe, Chandler, and Gilbert?"

"How did you determine the fair market value of this property?"

"What about financing? Can you help?"

"If I make an offer, who will draw up the paperwork?"

"Why aren't you using a Realtor? Is there something wrong with the property?"

"Since you aren't using a Realtor, we can take their fee right off the top, right?"

Selling your home is one of the most important financial transactions you will make in your life. Don't take risks. Selling your home is nothing like selling a car. Every home is different, and every homebuyer wants to offer you as little as possible. How do you determine the real market value?

Almost all homes are sold using a Realtor. As top real estate professionals, it is our job to help you negotiate with all those buyers who want something for nothing. Not to mention preparing your home for sale, marketing it locally in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Tempe, Chandler, and Gilbert and even nationally, and guiding you through the complex paperwork and pitfalls of escrow and closing. Make sure you are really ready to handle all of that before pounding that sign into your front yard. Errors can be extremely costly.

Remember: Buyers want to offer you as close to nothing as possible! While that "For Sale By Owner" sign might sound like a good idea, it usually means a different thing to buyers: "Try to steal this one."

Real Estate Tips

Real Estate Contracts >Sales Contracts

The purchase or sale of a home is one of the most complicated business transactions most people will be involved in during their lifetime. Whether the print is large or small, there is a lot of it! The purchase agreement covers not only the price of the property, but has many paragraphs governing the terms under which it will be conveyed to the new owners.

When you list your home for sale or when you begin your search for a new home, ask your real estate agent for a copy of the standard sales agreement. Familiarize yourself with the document ahead of time, and make certain you understand the responsibilities of both parties between the initial meeting of the minds and the closing date. You should be aware of all of the deadlines in the purchase agreement. Each contract is different, but there are usually time limits covering the structural contingency, the financing application, the loan commitment, and the closing.

You greatly increase the chances of a smooth transaction by being fully informed about the sales contract.
