Do You Need An Estate Agent To Sell Your Property?

Author : Mark Preston

For the longest time, property owners would always turn to estate agents to sell their properties. These days, you can advertise a property for sale without an agent and save a bundle on commissions.

One thing that many property owners get caught up in that they don't necessarily have to is dealing with a real estate agent. When looking to sell, many property owners think that they need a real estate agent to sell their property. This simply is not so. Sure, a real estate agent knows the ropes (hopefully), but the commission charged is not exactly cheap and often times property owners would be better off selling the property by themselves.

Selling your property without an agent is something that every property owner in the market to sell should definitely consider. It can save a lot of money and allow the property owner to end up with quite a bit of extra cash in their pocket that would have gone to the real estate agent instead.

The real estate agent will indeed know the ropes of listing the property and dealing with buyers, but doing these things is not as hard as some thing. In fact, for listing a property, just going online and listing on a web site will allow property owners to connect with thousands of buyers and open the door for selling their property very quickly.

In terms of dealing with buyers, this essentially comes down to your own resolve. Set a price for your property ahead of time, but make it reasonable. Know what the properties around you are worth and have been selling for and have a number in mind that you want your property to sell for. Be flexible but be prepared to haggle with buyers over the selling price of the property.

Dealing with buyers and listing the property are really the only two major things that will change whether or not you have a real estate agent. And, on that note, if you do have a real estate agent then it can be just as difficult dealing with them as it can be dealing with buyers! So, know what your options are and make the right choice for you when selling your property.

There are many ways you can advertise your property without an estate agent. One is to search on the internet for the major property listing directories to see if they offer an advertising service to private individuals. Another way is to post a private advert in your local newspaper. There are many other ways to reduce the commission you pay to the estate agents so do a little research first.
