You can sell your FSBO properties with no or minimal assistance from real estate agents. The selling process for FSBO is much easier now that American consumers turn to the Internet for many of their shopping and purchase decisions.

Before you list your properties, hire a professional to appraise them. Paying for someone to assess your homes based on actual sales prices of comparable homes in your area and based on physical inspection of your properties will be worth it.

You can also do your own research so you will know the prevailing prices in your community, but you should still ask for professional appraisal assistance.

After determining your listing price, explore your advertising options. Check the online FSBO websites that have been operating for a number of years and take a look at their listing packages. Narrow your choices to popular websites in your state or across the U.S.

Since the success of your sale depends on visitors to the websites, it is crucial that you choose the FSBO website with the highest web traffic. You can check for traffic rankings. There are also FSBO sites that have become very popular because they were the ones which pioneered online FSBO listings in their states or cities.

To maximize the exposure of your FSBO properties to prospective buyers at lower marketing costs, you can check FSBO websites that offer flat-fee packages that include Multiple Listing Service and defined agent assistance. Popular FSBO sites present clearly defined packages for prospective sellers through charts and checklists.

These sites also offer guidelines on how you can present your properties to buyers in ways that attract inquiries.

You can also explore Craigslist and other popular real estate websites that accommodate FSBO sellers. Think of one or two of the strongest attributes of your properties and include them in your advertisement titles so people going through the listings will click your listings.

Another important thing to remember when crafting your ads is to use words that are respectful of every kind of person in the world. You should sell your house to all people, not including any phrase or term that may lead others to think you are discriminating against a certain group of people.

Lastly, monitor all the response or the lack of response to your ads. You may need to adjust your pricing or change your marketing strategy to be able to sell your FSBO properties.
