I am also seeing a tremendous increase of for sale by owners in New Jersey due to self promotion sites like NJville.com and craiglist. These types of sites are are making it easier for home owners to sell their own properties for free and pass the savings off to the new buyers.

It is not for the intent of the poor buyer! Think just a little
