Sell Without Agents
How to sell without an agent
1. Save on commission fees
Selling privately means you can potentially save thousands of dollars in agents commission. This allows you to price your property more competitively for a quick sale, should you wish to do so. Alternatively, the potential savings in agent fees can be yours to keep if you don’t require a quick sale and are happy to perhaps market your property a little longer as would be the case with an agent property. As a private seller, you will in any case have more flexibility in the property market.
2. Save on advertising fees
Advertising fees when using the sell my house privately method can sometimes be lower than would be the case with an agent. It’s not uncommon that some of the marketing fees vendors pay just go to promote the agency selling your home. When you sell property privately you will have control over all advertising fees and will be able to ensure that every dollar goes towards marketing your home and not some other business.
3. Deal directly with buyers
Engaging agents to sell a property means that questions from prospective buyers are answered by the agent, who will not know the property anywhere as well as you. When a potential buyer deals directly with you, they will be able to have their questions answered quickly and correctly, something some agents avoid. Selling your house without an agent can also save a lot of time as communication does not need to go through a middle-man.
4. Control the campaign yourself
Selling your home privately means you have total control over the marketing and advertising of your property. You can decide where and when to spend your marketing dollars during the sell processes. For example, when you advertise on realestate.com.au you will have the option of leaving your listing as a standard listing or making this a featured property. This can be based on the feedback you receive and the number of enquiries you’ve received and this may or may not be a worthwhile expense for you.
5. Have flexibility during the sale campaign
In addition to flexibility in terms of the price (given that you won’t have to pay any commission to us), you’ll also have flexibility in terms of running opens, and when to show people through the property. This is something which is not dependent on the agent’s schedule. An agent’s schedule may only allow them to open property for half an hour at most. You on the other hand will have the flexibility to open for longer, or to show people through on weeknights or at short notice. All these things can help you move towards a sale when you sell your home yourself.
