For Sale By Owner
Saturday, August 04, 2007
**Edited at 10:05 p.m.**

The sign is in the yard.

The realtor said she would advise us to try for sale by owner for a couple of weeks before listing it. She is a personal friend, so I'm sure that's the only reason she is willing to give up the 6% commission. That's a good friend, eh? Actually, she sold us this house 5 years ago. D was 19 months old when we moved in here.

Our realtor friend said if we sale it by owner, she'll guide us through the contract and closing business.

I've been scrubbing floors and baseboards yesterday afternoon and today. I'm talking hands and knees scrubbing. My triceps are screaming!

We met with the builder yesterday and talked with the architect. So this thing seems to be really happening! Eeek!

**Oh my goodness, what a day! We put the sign in the yard around 10:30 or 11 this morning. We had 6 calls today, 4 of which were VERY interested. 3 showings. 2 possible offers to come on Monday! We may be homeless soon!

Wow! How quick. Praise God. It's not bad to be homeless for a good reason. If there's so many interested you might even get above asking.

WOW!!!!! Praying that things work out quickly. If you end up homeless, you can come to Abilene and visit us. I'm sure the girls would get along wonderfully! LOL :-P

That's wonderful! It will be great if you can hold onto that 6% by selling it yourselves! I look forward to hearing how Monday goes!

Working on your own certainly requires some time and effort in order to prepare for the whole process. Working FSBO is not as easy as it may seem. But more and more people nowadays choose this way of marketing and selling their property instead of dealing with an agent and paying a commission. Recently I have come across one interesting service ClimateWatch that can help home buyers when searching an ideal place to live. It is called Climate Watch. It allows homebuyers to check what the climate is like in another town or city all year round before they move there.
