Selling your house is something you’ll have to do maybe just a few times in your life. And unless you know a local Texas real estate agent who will sell your house for free or a hugely discounted commission… it can be a real pain in the rear and an expensive process for you as well.
So… you searched “How to sell your house by yourself in Texas” because of a few reasons I’m guessing…
- You have no or very little equity in your house.
- You can’t wait the months and months.
- You are going through foreclosure.
- You own an unwanted property.
- You are frustrated with the hassles of tenants.
- You own a vacant property.
- You inherit an unwanted property.
- You need to relocate quickly.
- You want to avoid listing your house and don’t want to pay realtor commissions.
- You are going through a divorce.
- You own a “fixer-upper” that you don’t want to fix up.
Whatever one you land in… there are ways to sell your house yourself here in the local Texas real estate market.
How To Sell Your House By Yourself In Texas
Asses the market
This step is almost similar to conducting market research, only that in this case, you are bound to your neighborhood and similar houses. Are there lots of houses for sale in your neighborhood here in your local city? If so, what is the average that they are listing for? That may drag your house price down.
Asses the house
As a seller, your house should be in top condition or shape in order to sell at a good price. Identify certain unique characteristics about it and emphasize them during the marketing.
Also, does your house require repairs? Does it need to be repainted inside or out? How is the condition of the roof? Is the landscaping in good shape? Is the house outdated at all? But if you don’t have the budget to make repairs, you can think about real estate investors like us, who can buy houses in as-is conditions.
After assessing your home come up with an asking price for your house that is fair.
Use Photos or Videos
Take some great pictures. Take a picture of every room in the house that helps show it off. Take a picture of the house from the outside in a few different angles… people want to see the house before they ever show up to see it. So having great pictures of your house online could be the difference between getting the right buyer quickly… and waiting months and months to sell. You can also take a home tour video to help buyers see what is really inside of your home.
