Most sellers who list their home “for sale by owner”, tend to assume that potential buyers have been through the home-buying process and know the stages of buying a home.

However, the fact is, this is one of the services that a Realtor® would normally provide. It is now going to be up to you, as the seller, to walk the buyer through the process of getting to the closing table.

The best way to navigate financing is to align yourself with a local title company and mortgage company that can help walk you through the process.

Often, mortgage brokers have clients that are approved but still need to find a home. So, this is a great way to tap into their client list to find a qualified buyer.

Your broker will also be able to estimate the closing costs for your home and give you strategic financing tips for marketing (enticements such as zero down, 2-1 buydown options, interest only options, or community funding & grants that are available to buyers.)
