We have been fortunate enough to find a buyer for our home before we even contacted a realtor to sell our home this summer when I retire from the Army and are very interested in do a For Sale By Owner because it will save us a significant amount of money. The Buyer is a USAA Member and intents to finance through USAA like we did. I have tried to call for suggestions on how to proceed but keep getting referred to the lender and the lender says they don't know either. We did go to one of the websites that USAA recommended to get a For Sale By Owner packet of legal documents but information about a timeline just eludes us. At what point do we contact the Title Company (how many days backwards planning from the closing date).. etc. If anyone has suggestions please reply here, I have elected to have the forum email me when there are responses. Thank you very much.
I am in the process of directly buying my home w/out a Realtor and I'm working with a attorney in MD who will handle everything. Now I have to sell my house near the beach in Delaware. I have it listed with a Realtor (my second one); wish me luck.
