Real Estate Broker Books: I haven't read these, real estate broker but just wanted to remind you of all the books that have been written on the subject. I am looking Real Estate Broker for detailed steps in how you would go about selling and buying homes and/or property on a private basis. Right from the best ways
to advertise the property or home, contacting a lawyer, Real Estate Broker submitting offer sheets, to finally closing the deal, and everything inbetween. If someone has gone about this proceedure before, I would love to hear the full story. As I said I am looking for detailed information. Thank you Hello, your question is a good one with several parts, which I'll go through in the order you give them. Note that I expect you'll have areas for clarification, so you should consider this a first installment, and I'll gladly follow up once you read the main text that follows. I have some experience having bought and sold several houses, including two where the sale was done privately. These comments are applicable to the United States in general, but laws and conditions vary so much from place to place, some adustment might be needed. The first point is something I've had to assume, that "privately" in this instance means not through a realtor, but directly negotiated between buyer and seller. The advantage of this is often speed and even friendliness, but mostly it is financial, avoiding a commission of between 4 and 8 percent in most areas. To be sure, all real estate sales are never completely private, even where property is given between family members. Deed transfers and mortgage commitments are by law a part of the public fact in County or Parish records, for many reasons including tax assessments. Good sources: One terrific resource, because it applies to your situation so well, is the "For Sale By Owner" web pages and booklets.
