The thought of selling your home without the assistance of a “Real Estate
Agent” sends most people into panic. All the paperwork seems overwhelming
not to mention trying to direct buyer traffic to your house. If you want
to sell your home fast (and most of us do) the first instinct is to try
to find a good real estate agent. You can interview several agents,
search the Internet for the most compelling ad, or talk to your friends
Or . . . you can save yourself a lot of money (and headaches) by selling
your house yourself.
First time buyers and sellers don’t have a clue how the real estate world
works. Professional real estate agents work hard to keep that ignorance in

Until just recently selling your home as a FSBO (for sale by owner) was a
tough job requiring time and patience. Most sellers find out the hard way
that selling a home fast is not possible without enough buyer traffic.
The new options available on the Internet change all that.
This eBook is written by an actual "owner/seller" rather than a real
estate agent or broker. As a result the information contained here is
based on actual experience rather than just what a real estate
professional wants you to know.
Find out how to handle the paperwork, display your home to its best
advantage, learn how to write ads and create brochures, plus many
tips about how to bring buyers to your home.

If your current photos don't reflect the joy you felt at the time the shots were taken maybe

photo shoot into an adventure and produce amazing pictures.
When you see all those amazing photographs in magazines and online websites, do
you wonder if, somehow, you could take shots like these? If you think it takes a creative
genius to produce amazing photographs like those that appear in National Geographic
you could be wrong. It could be you!
Amazing photos are based on a few principles that can be applied to every shot you
take. With a little knowledge you can unleash your creative ability and begin to produce
those amazing photos yourself.
