If you want to avoid paying commission to a real estate agent, or if you need an additional way to put your house on the market, showcase your home on the Internet.
Things You'll Need
- Internet Access
- Internet Service Providers
- Home Comparable Reports
- Personal Organizers
- Digital Cameras
Decide on a price range for which you will sell your house. (Buy a home comparable report to help you in your decision.)
Ask your real estate agent, if you have one, if he or she has an Internet site that sells houses. Otherwise, visit the International Real Estate Directory (IRED) for a listing of For-Sale-By-Owners (FSBO, pronounced 'fizzbo') sites.
Select the listing package that allows you to showcase your property as best you can and within your budget.
Fill out an online form, providing information such as price, a text description and contact information.
Ask if you can e-mail a scanned photograph of your home or if you can mail a photo to be scanned for you (the latter might cost you a small fee). The photo will then be incorporated into the website.
Check for listing expiration and renewal dates, and keep careful track of these.
