Property buying or selling should not be done in a hurry because you stand to miss out on a good opportunity when you are in a hurry. Besides, you need to buy/sell after studying the real estate trends and taking action only when the conditions are favourable. However, if for some reason you are hard-pressed for time and need to sell your property now, the best way to do it is by selling it without an agent.
Why is it beneficial to sell without an agent if you need to sell your “property now?”
When a real estate agent sells your home, he has several properties to focus on and he will not be able to prioritise the sale of your home. As a result, the sale of your property will get delayed.
In case you engage a real estate agent to sell your property, and push him to close the deal fast, he may not be able to sell your property at the best price it may be able to fetch otherwise.
On the other hand, if you decide to sell your property on your own, and you want to sell it fast, you will surely focus your time and efforts towards the sale of the property. This will bring you better outcomes besides saving you on the agent’s commission.
Many property owners get intimidated by the thought of selling a home on their own as they think that it is very difficult and end up paying high amounts as commissions to real estate agents. However, selling your property without an agent is not very complicated but you may require some guidance at certain stages of the sale.
Here are some guidelines for selling your property now:
Clear the Clutter
The first step is de-cluttering your home of any articles that are hampering the beauty of your home. Make sure that you remove all extra objects and especially articles such as photographs, etc. that are personal in nature.
Make sure that your home is in good condition. There should be no broken tiles, or non-functional faucets, etc. You could even consider giving your home a coat of paint to refresh it.
