5 Most Popular Homes For Sale By Owner in July

An important reason why people sell their homes by owner is, of course, the savings they can make by not paying a real estate agent's 6 percent commission. A common reason why people may not go the FSBO route is lack of confidence. But by stealing a page or two out of the playbooks of other successful sellers, as well as by taking a look at the most popular listings on in July, homeowners arm themselves with the knowledge they need to seal their own by-owner sale -- from pricing their property correctly to making the most of their home's online exposure.
