Selling a house without an estate agent advantages

Selling a house without an estate agent advantages

No brokerage commission to pay

One of the main "selling house without an estate agent advantages" is cost savings. Selling your property through an estate agent these days can be quite pricey. You sometimes pay thousands of euros in estate agent's commission. Not to mention the start-up costs. So you can spend a lot of money hiring an estate agent; but this is not necessary at all!

By handling the sale yourself, possibly with the help of external parties, you will save on estate agent fees and keep more money from selling your home. After all, you also know the most about your home, business or piece of land.

More control over sales

Selling your house yourself gives you more control over the sales process. You do and decide everything yourself, from taking photos to negotiating with potential buyers. This allows you to do the process completely at your own pace. You also decide who eventually buys your property and at what price; this can also be lower or just higher than the WOZ value. Of course, you can also outsource certain parts of the sales process. For instance, you can hire a photographer to take professional photos and/or have a stylist come by for styling. It is only wise to put your house up for sale when every room is actually ready.

A lot more peace and flexibility

An estate agent not only sells your house, but has many other clients. As a result, viewings cannot always be scheduled quickly. Besides, in some cases it leads to rushed viewings where the estate agent does not have all the time and knowledge to answer questions from potential buyers. You are more flexible than an estate agent and can schedule viewings at times that suit you best. This could be at the end of the afternoon, in the evening or at the weekend, for example.

It's fun and educational!

Selling a home without an estate agent not only makes more money, but it is also a valuable learning experience. You will learn (at Globelander) all kinds of things about decorating your home, being able to style and photograph it yourself, conducting viewings, negotiating with potential buyers and much more. Moreover, you can use this knowledge and experience again in the future, even if you choose to hire an estate agent for your next sale.

You have more knowledge about your home than anyone else

As an owner, you know your home and its surroundings best. You can personally show potential buyers around and tell them all about the property's unique features and benefits. This offers enormous added value and can increase the confidence of the potential buyer. In addition, it is entirely up to you who buys the property. Of course, it is nice to have nice people moving into your beloved home. Sellers on Globelander say that the personal contact with potential buyers is the most enjoyable and valuable part of selling a property yourself.
