How To Sell Your House 

Thinking of selling your home yourself?

Thinking on selling your home on your own?

What is the best method?. .you may ask yourself

For Sale by Owner (FSBO) There are some people who sell their home the  FSBO way.

The majority of these sellers do it because they know the person they are selling it too. Most often this involves family members or close friends.

But in most cases they sell their own home to avoid paying a commission to an agent.

This is a risky move for anyone to try as it  reminds me of a time when I met one of my clients for the first time.. 

First, allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Fernando Herboso, I’m the broker for Maxus Realty Group in Montgomery County Maryland. 

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about this client of mine that had to sell his home and was looking for ways to save money. 

He had a dilemma, as he was considering selling his home on his own in an effort to save commission,  but he also knew that selling his home as a FSBO was too time consuming and too risky for him.

Luckily he listened to my presentation as he realized that a very small percentage of FSBO are usually successful. 

Why try to overcome the odds and take on the difficulties of creating marketing systems just to sell one home?

I reminded him that my systems were already in place as my company  spends thousands of dollars each month making them run efficiently for all our listings...

That's when I decided to create a postcard that depicts clearly the difficulties for all For Sale By Owner candidates trying to save on commission fees.. .ignoring the facts that it takes time and money to market a home...if you want to achieve the highest value possible. 

Here is what we created: 

For Sale By Owner


The odds of overcoming the difficulties in selling a home by creating system from scratch.. .simply does not make any sense these days...

This is why my client realized that he had to employ the services of a full time real estate professional, (that is) if he wanted the odds on his side.

I introduced to all my “Home Selling Systems” one evening at his home. I showed him how we were able to attract buyers for our listings as we multiplied the number of showings by 10 in just the first 7 days we had it listed. 

The home was SOLD soon after in just in 27 days, and he  was able to save thousands of dollars on commission fees by "NETTING" more money at the closing table.

Should you decide, at any time, that you could benefit from the expertise and skills of a professional Real Estate Agent with a proven track record of success and marketing systems ready to promote your home..

I’m only a phone call away (301-246-0001) 

You are under no obligation and I can assure you that our meeting will allow you to explore your options even more so. . .
