If you are thinking about selling your home, then you probably could be thinking like what any other new home seller thinks. When you have never sold a house before, you probably believe that an agent is the only one who can help you find a buyer. No one should continue insisting on the bad misconception now that selling through agents complicates the process than how you would do it on your own. What you will read down the highlighted points is that selling your house can be easier than when you hire an agent who makes everything seem complicated. Read the benefits below and realize how much money you have been wasting on hiring agents.
The number one benefit you are tackling is so obvious. It is true that selling that home you own without an agent help you save money because you do not require any commissions for paying the services. You can be sure that agents will not work for you on free charges but you will need to pay commissions. In fact, you can plan aside the 6% that almost all agents are asking from homeowners. Even after paying the commissions, you cannot be sure that the services will be worthwhile now that you could be the one to find your home buyer even after spending a lot of money.
When you want to take control over that home you have owned for decades even when selling it, then you need to do the selling without an agent. Thus, if you do not have plans for showings on weekends, then you have to do what you want. The agents are not there to ask you to show your home when you want to take some time off. An agent would not consider the fact that you are not feeling like doing the shows, but he/she will ask to do things on his/her own way.
the terms for dealing with a show also brings you the authority to be the one running the terms in whoever way you feel appropriate for you. When you run the terms, you have authority over price negotiation when you and a cash buyer come to an agreement. Things are different when using an agent to sell your house. An agent would not understand your reasons for dropping the prices now that the charges would remain the same the entire time of selling. There is no way an agent would price your home lower than what they want to get after the sales. An agent would rather take quite some time before selling a home but sell it with its original prices.
