By now, I hope you are convinced to sell your house on your own, DIY style, and save thousands of dollars by purchasing one of my professional flat fee MLS listing plans.
After all, that’s YOUR hard earned equity and you should keep as much of it as possible.
But in order to keep that money, your house needs to ACTUALLY sell and not just be on the market.
Well, thats what we do here at Get LISTED Realty. We not only list your house on the REALTORs MLS and everywhere online for a low flat fee but we also give you all the tools and information you need to get the job done.
Because we ACTUALLY want you to successfully sell your house without a realtor!
Sell Your Home in 30-60 Days MAX!
I always tell people that in most cases, you can get your home sold in 30 to a maximum of 60 days.
That is true if you are selling with or without a Realtor.
But you have to follow the magic formula for selling a home.
So what is the magic formula for selling your home?
Well its really not magic at all, it’s just knowing what works and then doing it correctly.
You see, typically when a home sells it wasn’t just because of chance.
That’s usually because the owners worked with a listing agent who knew the correct steps to follow in order to get the job done.
But you don’t have to be a REALTOR to follow those steps in order to sell your home.
And if you want to sell your house on your own, DIY style, you can follow these steps and successfully sell your house too.
So what are the correct steps to follow to successfully sell your home?
3 Simple Steps to Successfully Sell Your Home
I’ve broken it down into 3 simple steps for you to follow.
1) Make your house look really, REALLY good, both in person and online.
You will be amazed at the impact to how a buyer perceives your home after you do some strategic staging items.
Sometimes a fresh coat of paint, decluttering and taking out unnecessary furniture can completely transform a home.
Other times it takes some more effort.
I always say you need to make it look as good as reasonably possible.
But every home is different.
If you want a complete and detailed list of ways to stage you home to sell, I have a home staging guide you can include with your flat fee MLS listing that will give you the best bang for your buck items to do both inside and outside your home.
Once your home looks its best, you need to capture it with great photographs.
If you are a skilled photographer with a quality camera then you can do it yourself.
But if you don’t have photography experience you should consider hiring a professional home photographer.
After all, the photos people see of your home online can either get them to put your lock box to good use and tour your home in person OR pass over your home and go see your competition.
If you want, you can add a professional photo package to your listing when you checkout on my purchase page.
I’ll coordinate with you and my professional photographer to come out to your home for a professional photo shoot.
I can absolutely say this is worth the few extra dollars you will spend.
2) Price your home correctly.
Did you know that the best form of marketing for your home is an appropriate price.
This is where most for sale by owner home sellers get it wrong.
Overpricing a home is the #1 thing you can do to hinder the sale of your home.
If your home has been on the market for more than 30-60 days.
Chance are you are overpriced.
But don’t worry, when you purchase a professional flat fee MLS listing plan through my website, you can always make price adjustments online, free of charge.
3) Get listed on the Realtors MLS and all the major real estate portals and be sure to offer a buyers agent commission.
You see the buyers agents job is to find a home that would be a good fit for their buyers.
But they also want to get paid for their time and effort.
Just like you do at your job.
You can motivate those buyers agents and get them working for you by offering a 2.5-3% commission and they will have no problem bringing their buyers to your home and working with you if they are interested in making an offer.
Although, don’t worry, you still are not paying a listing agents commission when you purchase one of my flat fee MLS listing plans.
Which is where you save thousands of dollars.
Or if you end up finding a buyer on your own that is not working with an agent, you save even more money and you don’t even have to pay a commission at all!
Use The Magic Formula to Sell Your House Without a Real Estate Agent
So thats it, the magic formula that all good Realtors know will get your home sold if followed correctly.

After all, you know your house and your situation best.
But I wanted to give you the best information possible, so you can make an informed decision about what you think will get you the best possible results so you can pack up those moving boxes!
