Wondering how to sell your own property? There are different ways to do it. You can outsource the selling to an agent for a commission. Then there is assisted selling where an agent helps you with the selling at a fixed fee. And, of course, you can sell it on your own without involving a third person.
Although the first two methods offer convenience they cost you money. An agent’s commission is no small sum. You need to pay the agent a % of the total worth of the deal. This can reduce your overall earnings by a large extent.
Assisted selling does not cost much and offers convenience as well.
But for those of you who want the complete control of the sales process and enjoy the earnings, it is best to sell your own property without involving an agent.
It is said that “Two is company and three is a crowd!”?
This saying fits appropriately for selling a property!
For the sale of a property, there should be only two people involved. The buyer and the seller!
The fact remains that some years ago it was not possible because there was no direct communication channel between the two parties.
But not anymore!
Now property sellers can connect with buyers through the internet!
Property selling has become greatly simplified due to the existence of online portals for listing a property for sale.
All that a seller needs to do is list his property on a high-visibility site. He can even list on multiple sites. Listing only means uploading the photographs, description of the property on the website.
Potential buyers will view the listing and connect with the sellers directly. The “third person” or the agent is completely eliminated from the process!
The seller can show his property to the buyer at a time of his convenience and negotiate a price that he finds appropriate.
The main benefit of selling your own property is that you do not have to share the earnings with anyone. Also, in most cases, your property is sold quickly because you have only one property to sell and your entire focus is on the sale.
On the flip side, property selling involves dedicated time and efforts from your side. Therefore, if you want to enjoy the benefits of the deal, you should be prepared to give your 100%.
It is not often that you need to sell your property, so why not give it your personal touch and sell it on your own by eliminating the agent from the deal!
