Listing your home ""for sale by owner,"" or FSBO, can save an average of $10,000 in real estate commissions. That's why everyone's doing it. In 2005, over 2.25 million sold their home ""by owner."" Online FSBO options also are accelerating: In 2003, an astonishing 840,000 FSBOs used online listing services. And that rate is accelerating.

For years, the For Sale By Owner Kit has been a must-have resource, filled with essential checklists, sales forms, and sample ads designed to simplify the entire home selling process. Now fully updated, this sixth edition includes tips on:

  • ""Staging"" a home to maximize its appeal.
  • Pricing a home for quick sale.
  • Managing all the necessary, but complicated, paperwork.
  • Writing an air-tight, carefully worded sales agreement.
  • Hiring fee-for-service agents.

Several entirely new chapters discuss handling disclosures and inspections fairly and honestly; getting full-service agents to work with you; and, most important, a detailed discussion on online home listings.
