Welcome to the DO IT YOURSELF Home Sale Kit!


The information on this page is everything you need to know about selling your property. Selling a house can be a full-time job. This was put together so that you have one place to get everything you need to sell your house on your own.  If you should need the services of an agent in the future, then give us a call! We would love to have your business and I won’t let you down.


Let’s get started with the first step. This is everything we know about selling property and real estate marketing!  It’s not every day I show someone how to do my job without me, but why not?  I live my life by serving others and if I’m able to help you in some way then I did a good deed!  Best of luck!


Step #1: "How To Sell Your House Without A Realtor Book"

This guide is where you should start.  It contains an overview of what you will need to know when trying to sell your house on your own.  It’s roughly 22 pages fully packed with content and will provide a good overview of the entire process.  You can download the guide below.


Step #2: Property Marketing Checklist

You must have a good marketing plan if you want to receive top dollar.  The more potential buyers you reach, the more likely you will sell.  This is the exact 34 step marketing and workflow process I use with every property we list.  Take one step at a time and you will get there.



Step #3: Advanced Seller Tips You Should Know Before You List Your House For Sale.

There are going to be random questions that you will think about when selling your home.  Each of these are in-depth articles I wrote to answer future questions you will have.  Make sure you read through all of these before you get started.  You are getting a P.H.D. in how to sell a house!

Step#5: Seller Paperwork

Below is the necessary paperwork for your upcoming sale. Print all of these out and fill them out appropriately.  I suggest getting these filled out right away so they are ready once you find a ready, willing, and able buyer.  I even included a sales contract for your upcoming sale!  (NOTE: While I try and keep this section up-to-date, you will want to have your attorney review everything to ensure you have the latest information and most recent documentation.)


Consumer Guide to the Agreement of Sale - Buyer



Consumer Guide to the Agreement of Sale - Seller



Sales Contract: This is a sample sales contract you may use once you find a buyer. Click below to view.


Residential Property Disclosure: This form outlines any disclosures that need to be made to your buyer. These cover all latent material defects with the property you are trying to sell. Read through it and fill it out appropriately.


Mold and Moisture Brochure: Fill out appropriately and have ready for your buyer.  This will go with your sales contract.


Lead-Based Paint Disclosure: If your property was built prior to 1978 then you MUST include this form in your disclosures.  If your property was built after 1978, you will not need this document.



Coal, Oil, Gas, and/or Mineral Interest Addendum: Fill out appropriately and have ready for your buyer.  This will go with your sales contract.



General Addendum: Fill out appropriately and have ready for your buyer.  This will go with your sales contract.




Appraisal Contingency: Fill out appropriately and have ready for your buyer.  This will go with your sales contract.



Notice of Termination of Agreement of Sale: Fill out appropriately and have ready for your buyer. 




Step #6: Calculate A Net Sheet

It is highly recommended that you create a net sheet prior to putting your property on the market.   I highly suggest that you pick a closing attorney ahead of time.   Ask them to prepare a more accurate net sheet based on your listing price.  This allows you to see what your walk-away figure will be after all closing costs!


If you would like me to put together a net sheet for you so that you can get an idea of what your WALK AWAY net number will be based on a specific sales price I will gladly do that for you.  Call/Text me at 724-504-0070 or fill out contact the form at the bottom of this page.


Step#7: A True Market Valuation & Home Staging Consultation.

If you want a REAL value of your home I’ll be glad to provide it to you.  I will not FLUFF your report.  Please note that I DO NOT CREATE THE MARKET and can only tell you what it says.  The valuation I provide to you will be reflective of a 30-day sales price in TODAY’S Market based on Today’s Values and not what you may want to hear.


Hopefully you are happy with the valuation, but do not blame me if you don’t like it. I’m here to tell you the truth, not fluff some inaccurate figure in hopes you will give me the listing. I may need to see the interior of your home to give you a more accurate valuation.


Below is a Sample Market Analysis you will receive.  You can see how detailed it will be.

I also have an additional service we provide at no fee to you.  I will come to your house to help you stage it if you like. It’s important that your home show in the best condition to maximize your sales price.  You may schedule your staging consultation when you request your home valuation. Please request the day and time of the staging consultation in the “form” below.  Please provide a minimum of 4-7 days to schedule a property visit and please allow 24 hours for me to turn around your home valuation.  I may be out with clients, but will get to it as soon as possible.

    I was in the market for a house so I called Michelle, and she showed me several properties and was full of knowledge on all of them. She was great and helped me get a great house for a great price! I'm very grateful for all her help, and I will go to her for all my real estate needs in the future!

  • Kurt Skelly

    Michelle was an absolute joy to work with. Her professionalism and keen working knowledge of the industry not only helped us present our home in the best possible way, but also enabled us to enjoy a full-price offer. Patiently she answered our questions, and efficiently she navigated the process from beginning to end. We found her to be attentive to our needs/concerns and competent in every way. I would highly recommend her!
