FSBO: Thing$ that don’t affect value
In the genuine desire to help people who have decided that they can ‘go it alone’ in the quest to get their home sold, here is another installment in my Unrepresented Seller series (also known as a FSBO) of information that I have gathered over the years. The goal is to not only help a homeowner get their house ready to market, but to also let them know that the road ahead may not be an easy one.
THING$ THAT DON’T AFFECT VALUE
Your personal attachment to the property
The cost to re-build it today
Your original investment
Your investment in certain types of improvements
What your neighbor says it’s worth
What you want to charge for it
Your need for a certain amount of cash
(that has NOTHING to do with VALUE,
no matter how important or noble the reasons)
Owners tend to see their home through emotionally prejudiced eyes,
at times preventing an honest, objective evaluation of their property.
