PRIVATE SALE

ARE YOU THE BEST PERSON FOR SELLING YOUR HOME?

There are many methods today of selling your home which has evolved. One of these options is to sell your house privately.

When you are selling a house privately without an estate agent, you are saving $20 -$30,000 by not paying their excessive charges, however, a private sale of your house does bring some pitfalls for the inexperienced seller.

It is easy enough to sell a property privately online. In fact, Trademe appears to be the number one site, with this Company claiming that 93% of home buyers will look at their website first before contacting the listing person, whether an agent or the owner who is selling their home privately.

Save money selling your home

Some buyers are reluctant to deal with a seller who is selling their house privately due to their preference in dealing with a registered agent who can offer the most comprehensive legal guarantees on all their contractual work, which is not often covered by dealing with the owner on a direct basis.

The sale and purchase agreement is complicated and a legal nightmare for the private buyer and seller and it is always emphasised that both parties to a private sale, consult with their legal representative prior to signing this document.

This consultation process is not an inexpensive exercise and will detract from the eventual sale price the private seller has obtained.

There is also, the fact, that an inexperienced seller in a private sale, will not obtain the best price for their home. A good agent will always get that extra money for you as they are well trained in the art of negotiation.
