Selling your home without a realtor or broker: Not listed on the “MLS”
When you are self marketing your property you are fielding all the inbound calls (lots of realtors looking for the listing to put it on the mls), doing the showings, taking the time to place all the ads on the internet, dealing with the purchase agreement, having your realtors friends/family be mad at you and throwing hints of 4%, ect. We know how it is 🙂
Here are some steps and options to sell your home without a realtor:
Determine the right price: Research the local real estate market to determine the fair market value of your home. This will help you set a realistic price that will attract potential buyers.
- Market your home: You can market your home by listing it on popular real estate websites such as Zillow, Redfin, or ForSaleByOwner. You can also advertise in local newspapers or put up signs in your neighborhood.
- Prepare your home: Make sure your home is in good condition before putting it on the market. This may involve making minor repairs or improvements, decluttering and cleaning, and staging your home to make it more appealing to buyers.
- Show your home: Schedule appointments for potential buyers to view your home. Make sure to be available to answer any questions they may have.
- Negotiate and close the deal: Once you have found a buyer, negotiate the terms of the sale and make sure you have a legally binding contract in place. You may want to consider hiring an attorney to help you with the legal aspects of the sale.
Selling a home without a realtor requires more work on your part, but it can also save you money on real estate commissions. Just be sure to do your research and be prepared to put in the time and effort needed to sell your home successfully.
