If you’re asking, “It is entirely possible to sell your sell my house without an agent?” the answer is YES! Read on to find out 2 easy ways to sell your house without a realtor.
The first way to sell a house without a realtor is FSBO (for sale by owner).
What is a FSBO Property?
A FSBO property (pronounced FIZ-bo) means that it is being sold by the owner of the property and not a real estate agent. While selling a home on your own has its good points, there are cons to the situation as well. But when it is done correctly, it can be very rewarding.
Pros of FSBO
You can save money on commission. The average commission for the selling price could be well over $20,000. When you sell your house on your own, that money goes right into your pocket and not a real estate agent’s.
You have control of the sale. Since you’re the one selling your home, you get control of aspects of the sale. You can choose when to negotiate and how much you want to sell it for. You also have control over showing your home. If you rely on a real estate agent to sell the property, they make appointments according to their schedule. This means that your home will always need to be on point and ready to show.
You can concentrate more of your time selling the house.
When you sell your own home without a real estate agent, you can devote as much time as you want to the sale. You will probably be able to sell even faster this way. Of course, this depends on if you really do have the time to devote. On the other hand, if you hire a real estate agent, you will have to settle for the time allotted for you. An agent has a lot more clients other than you. They have a lot on their plate, and you won’t be their priority.
Cons of FSBO
Marketing a property is not simple. There are many more sellers who want to list their home besides you. This means that the competition can be fierce. You need to stand out if you want to sell your home quickly and for the best price. Successful marketing is a skill that takes time and effort. (Not to mention some know-how!) An agent gets the word out to their network so that your property gets noticed.
It can take months for your home to sell. If you’re wondering, “How fast can I sell my house without an estate agent?” Well, the average home sells in 3 to 6 months. And that depends on the market, of course.
INSIDER TIP: Buyer’s agents may resent the fact that you did not want to use an agent and avoid showing your house. Doing this, while inappropriate, is a real thing and can hurt your chances of finding a buyer.
You’ll continue to pay the mortgage and insurance while you wait to sell your home. If you have a mortgage that you’re still paying on, you’ll need to keep on paying. Until you sell, that is. This is especially unfortunate if you have already moved out of the home. You may currently be paying two mortgages, and who wants to do that?
It’s up to you to make sure the buyer is qualified. This is where you really need to know what you’re doing. Obviously, if a buyer is not qualified, they cannot buy your home. You need more than a mortgage letter for this.
All delinquencies must be current. This includes mortgage, insurance, tax, and any homeowners insurance delinquencies.
#2: Sell to an Investor
The other alternative to getting your house sold is by selling to an investor.
