1. Preparations For The Sale

For those in Arizona pursuing FSBO (For Sale By Owner) efforts, the challenge to sell will be tremendous as close to 70% of these attempts don’t succeed due to various reasons. Although this approach requires substantial time and resources for making necessary improvements, having done so could make all the difference when finding success from your sale.

2. Inspections and Repair Work
To guarantee a successful sale, whether it be through yourself as the FSBO or an agent from a real estate agency, your home must pass an inspection. For buyers using an FHA loan to purchase your property, the inspection and needed repairs can become even more comprehensive and expensive. Even the slightest repair might slow down your home selling process, and most FHA buyers don’t have enough funds to cover a major fix.
