    How can you sell your house For Sale by Owner, without using a Realtor?

    Most people who are ready to sell their home opt to enlist the help of a professional real estate agent to list their property and get it sold. After all, a licensed Realtor has the expertise to know how to price homes to be competitive within the market area. They know what various homes have sold for, what is on the market currently, and how long it is taking for homes to sell. A Realtor is also an expert at negotiating a buyer’s price and conditions to purchase. And of course, a real estate team is responsible for putting all the marketing tools together and paying to advertise your home to reach prospective buyers.
    But what if you want to list your OWN HOME for sale? For Sale by Owner. You have a lot of connections, know what your neighborhood values are and have the time to walk prospects through your home (without taking their comments personally!).
    Here are some pointers to get you on the path to real estate sales success.
