In deciding which path you should take in selling your property, that is, through a commissioned agent or selling your property yourself, you need to consider these important factors.
And these are outside of the large savings you will make from not paying commission.
When you sell through an agent, you are completely in his or her control. After all, they are going to call all the shots.
Factors such as price set for your home, open inspection times, who is going to inspect your home, marketing costs, offers, price reductions, communication are just a few.
When you sell your own home all of the above fall into your lap, so panic stations, why?
All of these decisions will have to be passed on from the agent to you anyway because it’s your home, your availability and final selling price acceptance that the agent is going to have to get you to agree to.
So instead of all the same responsibilities of owner to agent why not just do it yourself?
OK, now that we’ve got that settled, let’s discuss the saleability factors in your control to maximise the sale – worthiness of your home.
Finding the right buyer is going to be difficult enough when there are several, sometimes dozens of listings in your suburb or town so ensuring your property is 100% and you are prepared to meet your responsibilities of selling head on.
