 For Sale By Owner (FSBO) with a Twist

Most people who decide to sell their home also decide to hire a real estate agent to handle the sale – from marketing to buyer appointments to contract preparation to negotiating to final settlement (and all of the details in between).  But there’s no law that prevents a home owner from selling their home themselves – often called For Sale By Owner, or FSBO.  And that’s where DIY Real Estate comes in.

Rick earned is real estate agent license in 1988, making this his 30th year in the business.  Over those years he gained an extensive amount of experience by working with literally thousands of sellers, buyers, loan officers, title company reps, other agents, home inspectors, municipal authorities, and various other industry people to successfully close on hundreds of real estate transactions.

Using that real life “in-the-trenches” experience, Rick has put together an innovative and cost effective program where he partners with FSBO home owners to provide customized real estate services based on the home seller’s specific needs – in essence, “concierge service”.  Perhaps you just want an initial consultation. Maybe some guidance in getting your home on the market.  Overview on Pennsylvania and municipal real estate law stipulations.  Pricing strategies.  Negotiating strategies.  Document preparation and/or review.  Tips on the home inspection process.  Coordinating with municipal authorities.  Arranging for the settlement of your transaction.  The list goes on and on.

Bottom line: today’s real estate industry is much more complex than when Rick began his career back in 1988.  That said, if you plan to sell your home and are considering selling it yourself, it would be prudent to seek out some expert guidance to help you get the process in motion or to clear some hurdles along the way. So go ahead and contact Rick to discuss this new, innovative and cost effective approach to home selling – Do it Yourself (DIY) Real Estate.  And please ask friends and family who are in need of real estate services to reach out to Rick, too.  Referrals are very much appreciated and client testimonials are always available!  Email [email protected] or cell (610)864-9872.
