Private House Sales ACT
Private House Sales in the Australian Capital Territory becoming more popular each year. Both vendors and buyers alike are realising that using a traditional real estate agent is no longer necessary. This can result in significant savings as no real estate commissions need to be paid. This benefits both buyers and sellers. By cutting out the real estate agent, buyers and sellers can also negotiate directly with each other. Are you considering selling your house yourself, without using an agent? Phone us on 1300 114 970 to see how we can help.
1. How Do Private House Sales in the Australian Capital Territory Work?
The process of selling a property without an agent is very simple. With private house sales, the owner is just selling themselves, without using an agent. So instead of talking and negotiating with a real estate agent, you simply talk to the owner of the property directly. There really is very little difference. There is just no middle-person and the buyer and seller just talk to each other directly.
2. Do I Still Need My Own Conveyancer or Solicitor?
Yes, it's always recommended that you use a professional to assist with the paperwork related to buying any property. They will be able to help with any questions you may have and will be able to do open homes. If you would like to make an offer on a private sale property, you can simply let the seller know this. If you've worked out a deal that is acceptable to both parties, they will then be able to provide you with a contract. Even when an agent is involved, both parties would need to engage their own conveyancer or solicitor. When buying or selling privately, this should still be the case. Before signing a contract to buy a property, you may want to check this with them. Be aware though that the calling-off period may be affected (as is the case with agent sales as well).
3. Are Private Property Sales Legal in the Australian Capital Territory?
Yes. There is no legal requirement in Australia that a real estate agent needs to be involved.
4. Are all Properties on forsalebyowner.com.au Being Sold Privately?
For Sale By Owner also has a number of properties for rent on our website. We list both residential and commercial properties. All properties for sale are being sold by the owners directly.
5. Is is Safe To Buy a Property Privately?
Buying a property privately is perfectly safe when using a conveyancer or solicitor. Payment of the deposit must also go to them, and not the seller. The seller would not be able to access it until settlement. Your lender will help to make sure that the transfer of ownership is done as it should be.
