Selling Your Property Privately — Hire a Real Estate Consultant
If you are selling your property privately, you do not have to handle the nuances and intricacies of sale alone.
You could retain the services of an expert real estate broker and pay a reasonable fee for being your consultant. You will still do all the activities yourself, but the consultant will be there as a retainer to advise you at every step of the sale.
It should not be difficult to hire one for about $5,000 or say about 20%, of the commissions, that you would normally pay to a real estate brokerage to sell the property. For a high valued property, this could tantamount to savings of tens of thousands of dollars over the traditional way of selling and hiring the services of a Real Estate Broker.
Hiring a consultant to sell a property privately is not a common practice, but just because it is not a common practice, should not be the reason, not to hire one.
With step by step consultation, you will get guidance through the entire process of sale. You will save your self from blunders that could cost you money, complications and even the sale of your home. You will be able to handle the private sale like a “Real Seasoned Pro” and sell your property fast and for the highest price.
Consultation could cover all marketing matters relating to the sale of your property such as Advertising, ad writing, search and selection of right written media and internet, preparation of your property for the highest sale price, how to show your property, What to do and what not to do, offer preparation, mortgage and other financing arrangements, bridge financing, building inspection, negotiations, preparation of offers, sign backs and counter offers, different winning strategies, conditional offers, removing of the conditions, title insurance, property survey and full marketing consultation right to the day of closing.
With the process of selling becoming complex and the consumer more focused on saving money, hiring a Real Estate consultant should be a viable option for the private sellers.
