Risks Of Selling Your Home Privately

The idea of selling your own home may sound good but there are a few pitfalls you should watch out for.

First of all, getting a grasp of the real estate market can take time because the market information can be quite dense.

To make it easier for you – why not ask a real estate agent for some guidance. 

For anyone, who is not a property market guru – information relating to house prices, depreciation and interest rate rises – can be confusing.

An estate agent has knowledge of the market at their fingertips – so why not take advantage of it?

Self-selling may seem like it is going to save you money in the short-term but in the end you may spend  more time and perhaps more money researching the market in order to understand it.

Getting advice from an agent can help to make the process of selling your home a lot smoother. 

An estate agent has expertise in the industry and more importantly can offer you advice such as the value of your home and what is a good offer from a prospective buyer.

Searching for a new home can be challenging enough without adding the extra pressure of trying to sell your current property as well.

Another key advantage is that an agent has the know-how to negotiate with vendors on your behalf.
