How To Sell Your Home Without A Real Estate Agent
When they’re ready to sell their homes, many people automatically flock to real estate agents. Home sellers have been conditioned to believe realtors are the only way to go when selling their homes. It is easily possible, though, to sell your Charlotte, North Carolina home without the aid – or the substantial fee – of a real state agent.
The first thing you’ll want to do is gather all the documents needed to list and sell your home. Those documents include a Sales Contract, Residential Property Disclosure form, Occupancy Agreement, and Mineral and Oil Rights form. Additionally, if your home was constructed prior to 1978, you’ll also need a Lead-Based Paint Disclosure form. You’ll also need to invest in advertising your home to make home buyers aware of its for-sale status. Yard signs, newspaper ads, online sales ads, social media, and word-of-mouth may be all you need to find the right buyer.
While they may have access to more far-reaching and sophisticated listing services than most people, traditional realtors do almost the same work you’ll do in listing and selling your home. For their efforts, most realtors will realize a commission of up to 6% of the selling price of your home. That means if your property sells for $250,000, they’ll take home up to $15,000. For selling your home. Additionally, many homes stay on the market for six months to a year before they sell through a realtor.
