Types of Listing for Selling a House

Aug 17, 2007
Selling your home is one of the most important business decisions a person or couple can make in their lives. Making sure you get the most money possible can be daunting, to say the least. For people who are looking to sell their house as is, there are many different options available, with each option carrying its own level of risk and level of cost associated with it. Here are some of the possible options for sellers.

First off, you need to make sure that whichever choice you make, that people out there know that your home is for sale. If you go through a real estate agency, they will do some of this for you, but you can still help out by making flyers, posting ads in the newspaper and with the evolution of the Internet, you can now post your home for sale online on many different sites. Many local newspapers have separate ads for their online section that carry stand-alone fees from the print edition. Also, sites like Craigslist are gaining popularity around the world for their free ads. Even if you have enlisted the help of a professional real estate agent, there are steps you can take to help raise awareness of your individual property.

The type of listing you choose can determine how your house sells and how much you will have to pay to sell it. A common method of selling your house is with what is called an open listing. With this method of selling, you are allowed to enlist the help of as many real estate brokers as you want. The fees associated with selling your home would only come into play with the real estate broker you eventually sell with. You usually only end up paying half of the usual fees that most sellers pay, but there are pitfalls. Since you dont have anyone looking out for your best interest, you can be taken advantage of by the broker that is representing the person buying your property. If you are an experienced seller and you know the ins and outs of selling, this is a good method to choose.

A second type of listing that is common is known as an agency exclusive listing. This is very similar to the method listed above, except you do have someone looking out for you once the buying process starts. You can also enlist advice for selling your home from an expert and not have to go it alone during the whole selling process.

The most well known method is also the most expensive method. The exclusive right to sell is when a seller uses a broker exclusively to sell their house. The seller of the house would have to pay fees to the broker for listing their house as well as selling it. The positives of this are that you are protected and it is in the brokers best interest to sell your property as quick as possible.

The best method of listing is going to vary from person to person. What might be right for your friends may not be right for you if you dont have the same level of experience. Once you do some research, you can find the best method of selling your house.
