If you’re a DIYer, go-getter or homeowner looking to control the process of selling your home while experiencing less stress, you can sell your OWN home and save THOUSANDS of dollars.

You already know that people sell their home "For Sale by Owner". This has always been an option. You also probably know that with the internet the real estate industry is changing. Realtors no longer have the power or control they once owned. You already know that buyers can find a home by searching on Zillow or Realtor, and NOW you know that YOU as a seller have the right to sell your home yourself.

In this lesson, I am going to talk you through exactly how you can list your home online. You could have the most beautiful home and photos but unless it gets exposure, no one will know about it. The success of your sale depends on this knowledge. I am talking through exactly where and how to put your home on all the sites that buyers are searching for. Are you ready? Let's go!

In this lesson, you will learn a crucial step to marketing your home. Face to face interaction and word of mouth referrals. I am going to teach you the magic of open houses and using your neighbors to help you sell. Don't worry, after this lesson you will have all the confidence to ask your neighbors to spread the word. Let's get started!

Marketing your home

In this lesson I am going to show you specific ways to follow up with potential buyers. The better your follow up the better chance you have of converting an interested party into a legitimate buyer. I'll also share some specific follow up questions to ask to improve your listing. Let's dive in!

+ Module 2: Contract + Negotiating Offers
5 lectures 36:14

Welcome to Module 2! In this video I'll give you a snapshot of what's to come in this foundational module of listing your home. I'll also go over the components of a contract and the aspects you need to know and understand as a seller. I will get you from the beginning of getting your home listed to the sales finish line. Let's dive in!

Contract + Negotiating Offers Snapshot

In this lesson, I am going through the purchase agreement in a detailed way so that you can understand exactly what you are looking for. I want to make sure that when you receive that first offer you know how to read it, what your net profit will be and how to respond. I've included a great worksheet to help you know exactly what you will be paying for and a checklist to guide you through the agreement.

Understanding the Contract

In this lesson, I am explaining the three main types of loans a buyer will get and how that could affect you as the seller. You need to know the timelines and the costs associated with these three loan types so that when you review an offer you are educated and can make a decision based on solid information. Check it out!

Different Types of Loans

In this lesson I am going over four things in regards to Negotiation:

1. What can be negotiated in a contract and sale of a home

2. How to communicate with your buyer

3. How to submit a counteroffer

4. My tools and tips for a successful negotiation

This is a critical step in the sales process and it is important that you take the time to learn these best practices so you are ready to implement.

Negotiating Techniques

In real estate, it is important that you as the seller do not discriminate against any protected class. In this lesson, I break down each of those classes and give examples of common mistakes and how they can be avoided. This is incredibly important and above all remember the golden rule- DO unto others as you would have them do unto you. Check it out.
