What is the best way to FSBO when you are not on property? We can come down with a little notice for a serious buyer.

Not a bad idea, but really don’t want to impose on my neighbors.

If the question is how do you offer access to a vacant home then install wifi controlled locks and garage door.

In this way you can open a garage door for a viewing.

Is this perfect? No. Is it cheaper than 6% commission?, Yes.

Your DIY cost, about 350.00. Remove devices before you vacate and use them on another home.

Thanks, that’s an option I had not considered. Do you have a suggestion for such equipment?

Besides internet you need four things:

The brains of the operation, called a hub. Use wink1 or Smart things

A wifi lock schledge or quickset. Use schledge.

A door position detector. Many brands are available and which one to get depends upon the hub you choose.

A wifi switch which mimics the momentarily contact you do when the garage open button is pushed. A device with spelling like mini memoo. I will get the exact spelling in a follow on post.

Sure you can replace the entire opener if you want. It is expensive, and not moveable to a new location.

Being non-technical, I'd use a Home Watch Company for showings.

I wasn’t aware that they did that. Are there any you recommend?

I've used the Village Watchdogs for many, many years. They are very dependable.
