Estate Agent vs Private sale

14 Jul 2015

Now that you are ready to sell your property, you are probably debating whether to sell your house privately or through an Estate Agent.

There are many pros and cons to both options, but to get more out of your first home sale, we recommended that you go through a qualified Estate Agent. Here is why:

While selling a home privately seems like a great way to save money, it also means that you will have to do all the hard work yourself.

This includes deciding on a selling price, marketing the house, being available for show days, paying advertising costs and negotiating the sale.

Often, the main reason a Seller uses the services of a qualified Estate Agent to sell their property is for the convenience.

The Estate Agent, because of their expertise, is better equipped at handling the sale process and takes on much of the responsibility on your behalf.

Because an Estate Agent works for commission, it is in his or her best interest to help you sell your home successfully by finding the correct calibre of potential Buyers.
