Some people ask how to sell a house privately, without the help of a real estate agent, according to the Citizens Advice Bureau. Some might say you’re a fool to represent yourself in court. I sigh when I hear that a homeowner is going to sell their home by themselves. Consider whether you can present yourself and your house to strangers. If you Google “How to sell a FSBO” or “Tips for selling my house,” you will read how to sell a house privately. There is an abundance of advice on how to sell a house successfully.
The main advantage of selling your house privately is to save on the cost of real estate agent commissions (you could save thousands of dollars depending on the eventual selling price.) By selling the house yourself, you will also have more control of the sale and negotiation process by having direct contact with potential buyers.
We believe the skills, resources, and experience of a real estate agent are worth the price you pay in commissions. You should weigh up the pros and cons of selling your house privately before making a decision.
Selling your house yourself may not be as simple as you think, and may take a lot of time and effort.
Doing it on your own can be like reinventing the wheel, especially when it comes to marketing, staging or having professional photos taken. If you don’t have the time and inclination to sell your house and don’t want to go through all the suggested steps, call us.
