Statistically, nearly 75% of all For Sale by Owner sellers (those not using the services of a professional FSBO marketing platform like No Agent) end up listing with an estate agent within 60 days.

Home Selling Tips

First and foremost is “Curb appeal” the first impression a home makes when a potential buyer arrives is critical when selling a home. One area often neglected is the driveway, which typically is one of the first features a potential home buyer notices when arriving. Neglecting to maintain a lawn by letting it turn brown or become overgrown may also discourage a buyer. Consulting with a home stager is always a wise thing to do. They have insight to the most recent trends and fashion that can make your house look completely different. No Agent have a network of recommended home stagers should you wish to go this route.

Second is getting your property out to as many interested parties as possible. This is done through No Agent and our listing syndication to other websites like Property24, PrivateProperty and many more internet providers. It is a fact that most home shopping is done through the internet and that 90% of all homes sold are direct results of listing through the internet.

Third is pricing. In today’s market being over priced as little as R20 000 too much can cause your house to be over looked. Even if you know your house is the best house in the neighborhood this will not make it worth more money. Being the best may make your house sell faster than the other houses for sale in your neighborhood, but not necessarily for more money. Comparing your house with other Comparable sales in your neighborhood with similar size and amenities must be done together with some common sense to come up with a price that is right for your neighborhood. If your house is priced correctly your house will sell.
