, Va., May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- As the housing market gets softer, more and more home owners are trying to save money bypassing a realtor and selling their homes themselves. Home owners can save tens of thousands of dollars in the process, making "For Sale By Owner an attractive option.
But the For Sale By Owner (FSBO) path can be filled with problems. "Most home owners have very little idea what the local market is like or how much their home is worth," says Ray Hamilton, real estate author and founder of Free FSBO School. FreeFSBOSchool.com features extensive information for home owners hoping to sell their homes themselves. The site offers tips and know-how via e-newsletters, weekly teleseminars, online articles, over-the-phone consultation, workbook, and a two week trial of their Assist Program -- all for free.
"Home owners need to understand how to advertise their home, about some pressing security issues, and what forms they'll need to have ready," Hamilton said.
Additionally, Free FSBO School offers a link specially for military personnel at www.freefsboschool.com. "People in the military often have to sell their homes quickly and on a tight budget. We're seeing a large number of National Guard members whose frequent and extensive deployment is forcing them to make adjustments in their home ownership situation. For them, knowing how to effectively sell their home fast and at a good price is of paramount importance," Hamilton pointed out.
