Looking for a property for sale by owner locally, nationally or internationally all have some merit. If you own a unique property for sale such as a castle or a mansion it could appeal to both the local buyer or an international buyer. So advertising to both national and international clients gives you the best of both worlds. There are many places to choose from and advertising in more than one place will provide better selling or renting opportunities.
Trying to find a viable property for sale is only one of the issues facing an international investor or a lifestyle buyer - selecting an agent to work with is the other.
Many will opt these days for selling privately which has become known as sale by owner or abbreviated to FSBO. In North America the term is also know as for sale by owner real estate and while this is a good option selling by oneself can have drawbacks. Often using the services of an professional estate agent will pay off by bringing a buyer quickly to the table and even gaining a better price. Picking whether to sell a property for sale by owner or by agent is a personal preference and both are known to work.
