So you want to know how to sell your house yourself? Firstly, you should know that you’re not alone. Literally millions of homeowners now decide to sell their homes without the aid of a realtor. I guess this is due to the financial crisis of the past few years and people wanting to save as much money as possible.
The one major thing you need to learn about selling your house yourself is that you need to “stand out from the crowd”! By that i mean if everything about your listing, the way you deal with buyers, your offer is the same as everyone else’s, you stand just as much chance as anyone else of selling their property. However, just by being different will get you far more attention.
I believe a great way to entice potential buyers is by making up and handing out information packs to everyone who comes for a viewing. So what should your information pack contain?
Firstly, have a copy of your appraisal. People will want to know the estimated value of the property, plus if there are any discrepancies or repairs needed they will be highlighted on your report, so this shows honesty. Next you should have information about the local area. Leisure facilities, local transport routes, schools and other amenities.
One of the main concerns of people moving to a new area will be some of the above points. If you have a young family looking to purchase your home, they will be interested in schools and possibly childcare for their children. People will have to travel to work, so will be interested in car routes and public transport. By adding a section about local gyms and your favourite restaurants or nearest nightspots can help to clinch the deal.
If you are trying to sell your house yourself, just remember by doing the same as everyone else and having an average approach, you should only expect average results. By going that extra mile, buyer’s will remember you and therefore are more likely to do business with you!
