Thinking of skipping the services of a real estate agent to sell your home? If the answer is yes but you think that this is not possible, then you have to think again. You see, it is very much possible for you to sell your property directly, or in short, by yourself. When you sell your property without employing the services of a real estate agent, you actually get to save on their commission fees. And yet, there is another question that you have to deal with. Is it going to be a smooth sailing ride to sell properties on your own?

To answer the last question, it would be a yes. Selling a home directly can be a smooth sailing process if you make sure to dedicate your effort and time in doing so. Once you have the willingness and commitment to do so, then there is no doubt that its benefits will come coming back to you.

What are the benefits of selling property directly?
• No more profit sharing: As mentioned above, since you are the only one directly selling your property, you need not provide any commission fee to your real estate agent anymore. This is often taken as a percentage from the total selling price of your property.
• Control over the sales process: If you hire a real estate agent to sell your property, he or she takes control over the sales process. However, if you sell your property directly, you are the one who takes control over the whole sales process.
• You can make better price negotiations.
• You have all the say on the arrangement of viewings of your property for sale.

What are the crucial steps to selling your property directly?
1. Remove clutter: Remove all personal belongings and garbage found in and around your home.
2. Inspect: Check the condition of your home like any presence of defects and faults and address them as soon as you can.
3. Home staging: This is the process of decorating your home to entice potential home buyers to check it out. You can hire the professionals to provide you with these services. When effectively done, not only are you attracting more potential buyers but also you are allowing your property to be sold at a better price.
4. Price your property: One way to sell your house fast is to price it accurately. You can do online searches of the current prices of properties that are similar with yours. You can also get the services of a professional evaluator.
5. List your property: Have your home listed on a reputable and highly visible property portal. In this way, you can attract more buyers to check out your property. It even helps to have your property placed in multiple property listings.
6. Connect with potential buyers: Always include your contact information regarding the property that you are selling. Once a potential buyer sees your listed property, they will not have a hard time connecting with you.
7. Arrange viewings: Find a convenient time not just for you but for your potential buyer if they must view your property.
8. Negotiate: Since you are the owner of your property, make sure to keep in mind the price you want your property sold. You have the power to directly negotiate with your buyer.
9. Close the deal: Do this by having the required documentations with you. It would be better to have a legal expert by your side to check the validity of every document drawn.
