Selling Your Home By Your Self

Even if a simple sign in your yard did produce a buyer knocking on your door, how will you handle the following questions: 

 

"How do you really know this person is interested in your home and is not out to harm you or your family? 

"How does your home compare to others like it in Shreveport and Bossier City?" 

"How did you determine the fair market value of this property?" 

"What about financing? Can you help?" 

"If you get an offer, who will draw up the paperwork?" 

"Why aren't you using a Realtor? Is there something wrong with the property?" 

"Since you aren't using a Realtor, we can take their fee right off the top, right?" 

"Do you really feel safe letting strangers come in your house?" 

 

Selling your home is one of the most important financial transactions you will make in your life. Don't take 

risks. Selling your home is nothing like selling a car. Every home is different, and every homebuyer wants to 

offer you as little as possible. How do you determine the real market value? 


Almost all homes are sold using a Realtor. As top real estate professionals, it is our job to help you 

negotiate with all those buyers who want something for nothing. Not to mention preparing your home for 

sale, marketing it locally in Shreveport and Bossier City and even nationally, and guiding you through the 

complex paperwork and pitfalls of escrow and closing. Make sure you are really ready to handle all of that 

before pounding that sign into your front yard. Errors can be extremely costly. Remember: Buyers want to 

offer you as close to nothing as possible! While that "For Sale By Owner" sign might sound like a good

idea, it usually means a different thing to buyers: "Try to steal this one." 

 

If you must sell your own home, at least let us give you a sense of its true market value. Tell us a bit 

about your home, and we'll do a quick Comparative Market Analysis and let you know what we feel it is 

worth. We'll also describe, as experienced, top Shreveport and Bossier City Realtors, how we would market 

your property. This is free, with no strings attached. Simply fill out the form and we will quickly get back to 

you...
