In this blog post you’ll learn our best 3 tips about how to sell a house privately in Kitchener without a real estate agent.
When it comes to selling your house, you have 2 options:
The first option is to sell your house through a real estate agent. This way can be expensive since the agent will charge you a commission for their services – and that commission can be anywhere from 5% of the sale price or higher (often thousands of dollars).
The second option is to sell your house without a real estate agent. This way can be much cheaper, since you won’t have to pay an agent thousands of dollars in commission – that’s money that stays in your pocket.
Here are 3 tips about how to sell a house privately in Kitchener without a real estate agent:
Tip #1: Clean Up The House
The more “ready-to-live-in” your house is, the higher price you might be able to get for your house. So this might involve some cleaning up or even fixing up. If there are renovations that you’ve started, you might want to hire a contractor to finish them. Maybe the roof needs to be reshingled. Perhaps you should paint your house.
Tip #2: Tell Everyone!
Next, tell everyone you know that you’re selling your house. Post about it on Facebook. Find a local “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO) website or newspaper and post there. Put up flyers at the grocery store. In other words: Just tell everyone you can and ask them to tell everyone they can.
Tip #3: Be Prepared To Show Your House
People will want to come through your house to look at it and decide whether or not to buy. Be prepared to show your house – morning, noon, or night. It can be quite time consuming but just keep remembering all that money you’ll save!
