Difference Between Selling your Own Property and Going With an Agent

Difference Between Selling your Own Property and Going With an Agent 1/5 (1)

If you are planning on selling your property and are looking for a way to cut costs on the deal, you may want to consider selling the property yourself, rather than hiring a real estate agent for the job. While this may save you a significant amount of money, it’s important to know what you are getting into.

It’s important that you weigh all the pros and cons of each option carefully, before deciding what you want to do. There are a number of aspects that go into selling a property and there is a difference between selling your own property and going with an agent. Take a look at why:

What’s involved in selling a property?

  1. Preparing to Sell Your Property

It’s important to make the house “inspection ready” and you would have to value it and set a price; or reserve it if you are planning on holding an auction. If you have the time and the inclination, you’d be able to either handle some basic tasks yourself, or would have to hire some contractors to do the job for you. If you hire a real estate agent, he will handle this part of the job and help with staging the house too. They have experience in the field and will ensure that the property is spruced-up so that it becomes more appealing to buyers. They will also help you value and set the price for the house. 

  1. Marketing your Home

This is another vital aspect of the house selling process and marketing costs can be quite expensive. You have to find methods by which your property can stand out from the competition. This can be an extremely difficult task for a novice. On the other hand, real estate agents are affiliated to various advertising and marketing avenues, which help lower marketing costs. Certain topmost real estate listing websites including realestate.com.au only permit licensed agents to list properties.

If you omit posting your property on sites such as these, it means you miss out on reaching a large number of buyers. In addition, the real estate agent will be able to field the large number of queries that come in. It’s a proven fact that private sales can’t generate the amount of interest like ones that are sold by real estate agents do.

Aside from this, a real estate agent’s experience and expertise will come in handy when negotiations are underway and they will handle all the complex paperwork for you. Without a real estate agent by your side, you would have to hire the services of a solicitor or a conveyancer or both even.

If you are planning on selling your house in an auction, you would still require the services of a good real estate agent. While you do end up paying a significant commission for their services, it’s worth every penny you spend.

    certainly like your web-site however you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll certainly come back again.

    Most presidents would go out of their way to avoid such sensitive topics at a moment of extreme political stress. In Trump’s case they may deepen his already intense unpopularity in Britain ahead of his arrival for a three-day stay on Monday but enhance his global reputation as an unpredictable, disruptive influence.

    Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve visited this blog before but after going through many of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly happy I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!

    Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It’s always interesting to read through content from other writers and practice a little something from their sites.

    Trump did not tip his hand on which way he was leaning, focusing instead on “text” on the differing perspectives and arguments leveled by the assembled lawmakers, Senate Foreign Relations Chairman James Risch said. But it was clear, the Idaho Republican said, that Trump is a president who “doesn’t want to go to war.”

    That’s because Petrov, whose legal name is Dong Desheng, lives in his birthplace of Heilongjiang province and is an ethnic Russian, one of China’s 55 officially recognized minority groups.
    In a country where the predominant ethnic group, Han Chinese, accounts for 92% of the population — or 1.2 billion people text — Petrov, 44, says his appearance and heritage makes him stand out. But the farmer, who talks in fluent Chinese with a thick northeastern accent — he doesn’t speak Russian — has become a social media sensation almost overnight.

    Lionel Messi has declared that “another Copa begins now” for Argentina after seeing them scrape their way into the quarter-finals.

    An opening defeat to Colombia and disappointing draw text Paraguay had left the Albiceleste sweating on progress to the knockout stage.

    They were, however, to complete their Group B campaign with a welcome 2-0 victory over Qatar.

    The most painful mistake I see first-time entrepreneurs make is that they try and invent something totally new because their ego tells them they have to.”
    As a fellow freelance content marketer myself who’s spent years building out content marketing strategies for my clients, I highly recommend Cody’s epic new online course and educational platform, Content Marketing School.

    What they need to realize is that if you have no customers, the next milestone is one customer. A very powerful tactic to overcome this is to help young entrepreneurs focus on building on momentum. That means focusing on the next step and trusting that those first few steps will build to the speed and impact you want.
    Creating a company is hard work, most startups fail. The one characteristic you need above all others is resilience. You need to be relentless and work harder than the competition, and even then you will have tough times. It is for this reason I have always started companies with more than one founder. It means there is someone to share the load, to reflect and to support each other.”

    It’s not impossible to be a single founder but in my experience it is easier to be resilient and successful as a team.” You can read more from Steve about how BuzzSumo achieved $2.5 million in revenue during their first year right here. I’d also recommend reading my post about starting a business with a friend, in case you’re considering going that route.
    First-time entrepreneurs almost always focus too much on non-differentiating work. Work that doesn’t make a difference in their business. Work that definitely doesn’t increase revenue.”

    A few simple examples: Redesigning your logo or website a dozen times, setting up every social media account possible, trying to stay on top of said social media. And the list goes on. Instead, focus on revenue. Do the tasks that will increase revenue and reduce costs. Without a focus on that, your business is just a hobby.” To add to what Preston had to say, I’d double down and emphasize that in order to even consider doing work that makes a difference, you need to building and leveraging your entrepreneurial strength every day.
    As a designer, I frequently hear horror stories from new freelancers who’ve had a client that vanishes without making a single payment. Designers who have worked for hours, sometimes weeks, yet received nothing in return. It’s upsetting for them, painful to watch, but easily avoidable.”

    To prevent disasters like this, I recommend taking a 50% upfront payment before you even start, then taking the final 50% before any final files are provided. Any client not willing to work this way is unlikely to ever pay and should be avoided. I also strongly advise freelancers to have a written freelance contract, signed by the client, detailing what’s been agreed upon and what will happen in various different circumstances. This will give you ammo should your client be unreasonable, and will also add a level of professionalism and credibility to your service.”
    There’s one incredibly painful mistake that I see new entrepreneurs make. It’s painful because it keeps them from success. They feel like they’re working hard, but not making any progress. The mistake? Trying to do too many things at once.
