I have a SF home i want to put on the market for about $106k and have an idea about the wording of the ad i’m going to put in the paper. I don’t want to owner finance. what wording has worked for you all? any catch phrases to get their attention? thanks

Why don’t you want to owner finance? You will typically get much greater response.

Depending on your situation you could create financing and sell it if you need cash. Or you could wrap any underlying mortgages so you won’t have to pay them off now. You get a down payment and a monthly cash flow. Either case should work if you get a large enough down payment from the buyer to feel comfortable.

These are more sophisticated techniques but nothing creates more interest in an ad than NO BANKS REQUIRED.

Old ad man’s motto LOL. It means sell the advantages of your property. Do not just have a list of details. Paint a picture so the reader really wants to live in your property. If you have a flat lawn say ‘golf course lawn’. If you have a hilly one say ‘rolling lawn’.If the lawn is a mess talk about something else LOL. Do not be afraid to make a real nice descriptive ad. So what if it costs a few bucks more, it’s nothing compared to what you can get for your property.
