AllHomes has a [virtual] monopoly so all real estate agents list through them anyway.
There is heavy demand for houses. I’ve been to a number of house inspections and essentially, the agent is just there to open up the door and let people through.
It doesn’t sound awfully hard, and some of the agents I’ve met have been pretty bad.
Furthermore, apparently, they get a pretty hefty commission – in the range of $10k+.
Quite frankly, I think I could do just as good a job. Probably better, because it’s my house and I would know more about it.
All I’d need is an ad on allHomes, some printouts, a professional photographer to take some pictures, a solicitor to draw up the contracts etc.
All the house inspections are done on weekends, so I’ve got the time to do it and I think I could do all this for well under 10k.
Has anyone tried selling a home on their own?
Is this a good idea?
Would like to hear of your good and bad experiences?
