There has been a recent proliferation of Sell your Own Home companies that are all claiming to be the best, the cheapest, the quickest way to sell.
But is any of this true?
Is it enough just to list your property on the internet and throw up a cheap core flute sign? Maybe the next thing that they will be marketing will be rosary beads and prayer wheels because buyers may need them.
When thinking of going down the sell your own home route it is best to proceed with caution and consider what it is you will actually get for your money, most importantly, will it work for you? Will you receive sound advice and professional support or will you simply be another internet order for a document factory?
The selling of your home can be a stressful and challenging time, that is why many people choose to let someone else do it for them, but is this as effective as doing it yourself?
A small number of the emerging self sell companies offer hands on support and personal service to their customers through the whole sales process. Some even provide a dedicated person to work with the home owner and provide encouragement and advice so that they do not feel on their own.
One positive indicator coming from this new wave of self sell systems is that buyers are lapping up the opportunity to deal direct with owners.
It makes buying a home a lot easier as there are direct and immediate answers to any questions the buyer may have.
In the past you had to either rely on the Real Estate Agent to have the answer or wait until they could get it from the vendor, sometimes this process became convoluted and many buyers were suspicious of the answers as they felt they may not have been reliable.
Selling your own home is rewarding and you can save thousands $$
