Selling House without Estate Agent

How to sell a House Privately

Many people think that selling a house is an easy task. You just advertise the property, produce some details and hey presto, the buyers come in and make you an offer! Unfortunately, especially while a property market is in the doldrums, selling a house without an estate agent can be quite a difficult task, but if you want to give it a go, why not have the best of both worlds? Sell without an estate agent while also allowing an agent to sell your home at the same time!

The trick to selling a house without an estate agent as well as using an estate agent is to do with the contract you sign with the agent. Anyone can try to sell their home on-line. For example, you could try this for the first few weeks to see how you get on and how many viewings you generate. If it's not working too well or you find that you aren't really enjoying the experience, it might be worth approaching an estate agent who would be happy to take on selling the property for you - as long as buyer leads are tracked. If you sell your home via the agent, you pay their commission fees, however if you do sell the property yourself to a buyer that hasn't viewed via the estate agent's office, then you don't.
