Sequim FSBO eBookDo you have Sequim real estate for sale, maybe a FSBO?  Retired real estate attorney Chuck Marunde, now a real estate broker, Internet marketing consultant, and writer, wrote an eBook for homeowners who have thought about selling their own homes.  The eBook is short and to the point, but with the content and the resources made available in the eBook, there are over a 100 pages of solid content, especially for the Sequim and Port Angeles homeowner.

The subjects covered include topics on arriving at an accurate fair market value, appraisals, advertising and marketing, negotiating like an expert, an MLS tool for homeowners to look at what is for sale now in Clallam County, free classifieds for advertising, a list of document titles for the legal documents that may be needed, and traps for the unwary (like the Form 17 Seller’s Disclosure).
