Tips to selling without an agent

Do you want to sell your family home? Often, people assume that they have to contact an estate agent. But this is a costly process that can cost you thousands. Often, this will decrease the profit you can make on your property.

It is important to realise that you do not need an estate agent to sell your home. It is possible to go through this process yourself and sell your property. This can be a great way to maximise the profit you may and avoid expensive selling fees. Here are some tips if you want to go it alone.

Arrange a Valuation

First of all, you cannot sell your home without knowing what it is worth. This is something that you may not realise is done before you sell. But it is easy to arrange for a professional to come to your home and tell you how much you can expect to sell your property for. You can also do your own research into properties in the area. Then it is time to start selling your house without an agent!

You can Advertise for Free

There are a lot of ways you can advertise your property for free thanks to the internet. You can create a free listing, detailing the features of your home and including quality images of the house. There are several websites that will allow you to do this. In addition, for a small fee, you can advertise in your local paper. Word-of-mouth, posters and social media are other good ways to tell everybody that your home is up for sale.

Clean Before Viewings

Since you will be selling your house without an agent, you are going to have to do some decluttering and cleaning before viewings. You will have to host them and show interested buyers around. When rooms are clean and tidy, this is going to show your property in the best like and allow you to enjoy a fast house sale. You can make simple upgrades too to boost the price. For example, applying a fresh coat of paint. But you do not have to spend a fortune on this step in order to appeal to a property buyer.

Negotiate with a Buyer

An estate agent often makes the selling process simpler when it comes to offers. If you are selling privately then you are going to be dealing with all of the offers and negotiations, as well as accepting the final offer. If you do not know a lot of this, it is best to educate yourself online in order to sell your house fast.
