How to sell your home yourself

How to sell your home yourself
Selling your house may seem a daunting task. However, with today’s resources it can be easily done and without resorting to an estate agent, saving that hefty cut that you would have to pay them. Sure, they will save you a lot of time and effort, but their cut is stealing away your profit. Why not do it yourself?

Fine the right valuation


The hardest part if you are not savvy in this field is finding the right valuation to ask for. You don’t want to undervalue your property and end up losing the money that you deserve.

For this purpose, you can resort to sites like Zoopla or eMoov that will provide an estimate, considering the attributes of your house and location. If you don’t quite trust online valuations, you can try to get a local agent to give you an estimate for a small fee or even for free. Most of the times, they are more than willing to do so. Then, all that is left is advertising.

Other platforms


Nowadays, to sell your home you can use platforms like Property Sell or House Ladder that offer free online advertising for your house. Don’t forget your local supermarkets and newspapers, too.

Lastly, you’ll need to arrange viewings for the house, which can be time-consuming without the middleman. However, you can sell your house without losing any money at all!
