Just be careful with Craigs List and sites you are not familiar with. Have you thought of renting it out? If you want to try to sell it yourself, try For Sale by Owners, site to have an idea what to do and how to make your home sale. Think of how the area is and what a person is looking for. For instance, if people are into country style homes and your home has the decor that most wouldn't want, then make small changes. If you are overcrowded, rent a storage unit (preferable enclosed with climate control) to give the look and feel that it is more roomier inside. Realtors use someone to stage the house to look attractive and less cluttered. If you can, offer your appliances with the sale if they are in great condition. Small improvements can go a long way. Change the draperies or make your own for the decor of what someone would like in the area. If you rent it out, make sure you get that deposit of 1 month's rent + the rent, do a credit check on the potential renter, ask for business references, and their work situation on the form. You can get legal forms on the internet to have the renter fill out that you printed. If you rent it out, charge enough, make sure you can do your own repairs, and be your own property manager. Take the time to listen more than talk to get a feeling they are who you would want in your home. You could even consider driving by where they live to get an idea where they are coming from and can afford the rent. Decide if you will accept dogs and only certain breeds. I believe you can do this yourself by selling your home or renting it to a valued person with the proper free legal forms. But do check out FSBO (For Sale By Owner) free circulars and talk to those who can give you GREAT pointers!
