Selling your house yourself without an estate agent

Want to sell your house without an estate agent? A very good choice! After all, selling your home through an estate agent can be quite pricey. You sometimes pay thousands of euros in estate agent's commission (agency fee) because your house happens to be more beautiful, more spacious or more luxurious. Not to mention the start-up costs. All in all, you often spend a lot of money on an estate agent, but in our opinion, this is not necessary at all!

Globelander offers a cost-effective way to sell your home without an estate agent. Read how exactly it works on this page.

Why sell house yourself without an estate agent?

Even if you are not a real estate agent, you can sell your own house yourself. In fact, this used to be quite normal. For the past 50 years, we often handed over the entire sale of a property to a real estate agent. This resulted in significant commission fees. In doing so, you entrusted your property, often your most precious possession, to someone who was often not fully familiar with the characteristics of your house and its surroundings. This while you, the owner, had much more information about the property.

Selling a house without an estate agent means you are in control. You determine the selling price, contact potential buyers and conduct the viewings yourself. You can even do the negotiations yourself after reading our tips. It may seem like a lot of work, but you keep full control of the sale all by yourself. Buyers also appreciate the flexibility in scheduling viewings. Moreover, you will save thousands of euros in estate agent fees, which you could obviously put to good use for your new home.

Advantages of selling a house without an estate agent

Selling a house without an estate agent has several advantages:

Saving thousands of euros in costs

Selling your home without an estate agent will save you thousands of euros in estate agency fees. No more start-up costs and estate agent commission!

Full control over sales

You have full control over the sale of your property. You can quickly negotiate and make decisions without a middleman.


You decide when a viewer comes and how much time you give these potential buyers. It is greatly appreciated by potential buyers that they can view the property in peace at weekends or outside office hours. So you no longer have to be turned away from your own home by an estate agent!

Set the price yourself

Determine the selling price of your property all by yourself. Do you receive an offer from a potential buyer? Then you decide whether to accept it or not.

Adding value

Potential buyers enjoy getting in touch with owners. They are curious about who has lived in the house and often have personal questions that only owners know the answers to.

Globelander: the platform for global sales

Globelander was created by listening to personal stories of homeowners who were keen to sell their home, business or piece of land. You may have experienced it yourself: the estate agent who was going to sell your house often did not know all the information about the property. As a result, potential sellers sometimes don't get all the necessary information or the well-known "unfortunately I don't know this" as an answer. It also often happens that people have to wait for days or weeks to schedule a viewing at times that suit 3 parties (owner, estate agent and potential client).
