FSBO's Time Frame
Please review the information under Selling - Determine Time Frame, this contains some additional suggestions for FSBOs.
As you review all the information needed to sell your property, remember, you need enough time to prepare both the marketing material and your home for sale. Fairfax County has a lot of tax information on line. You can look up recent sales online by address. Not all data will be available unless you look at each address, so set aside some time to research your area. If you're just starting to think of selling, start collecting flyers and prices of local properties. If you go to open houses you can make a more accurate comparison of your house to recent sales. Try to guage how long a property has been on the market so you know what to expect. Please give yourself enough time to print flyers, advertise and wait for a good contract.
