A FSBO (For Sale By Owner) seller wants to move forward with your offer—that’s great news! But first, they have asked you to pull comps (comparable sales). Believe it or not, this is something you can use to your advantage. Of course, you’ll need to know where to find comps and how to estimate rehab costs so that you can defend your offer. Thankfully, Ashley and Tony are back with some of their best tips yet.
