For Sale By Owner Checklist

Selling your house without the services of a real estate agent or broker may be something you wish to explore to save yourself the expense of real estate commissions.  
Talk to your friends and family members to see if any of them have sold their own homes.  Ask them how the process was for them and whether they would recommend it to you.

When You Need It
-To help you decide whether to sell your house on your own or with the help of a real estate agent or broker.
-To learn about the issues and preparation involved in making an informed decision on how to best sell your house.

Getting Started
-Use the For Sale By Owner Checklist to consider the steps necessary to sell your house on your own.
-Call local title companies to see how cooperative they will be with someone who chooses to sell their own home.  Most title companies are happy to work with you in both guiding you through the process and providing the necessary local forms to document the sale.

When to Review and Revise
-Change in circumstances or in the preferences of the owners of the house regarding the manner in which they want to sell their house.
