July was another big month for by owner sellers. House hunters were out in force on ForSaleByOwner throughout the month and they flocked to these five homes. More than 27,000 buyers were drawn to these listings, resulting in two of these homes being put under contract in less than three weeks. Let’s take a look at what they did to get so much attention.
