Private House Sales Gaining Momentum

Jan 19, 2008
Selling your property and wondering whether you can handle the details and keep the estate agent commission in your bank account where it rightfully belongs? Well guess what? You can and plenty of resources are available to help you at every step of the way.

Show the world your property

By taking maximum advantage of the Internet, you can immediately start boasting your property's finest features to thousands of motivated buyers from around the region and even from around the world!

Private house sales are gaining momentum as the "do it yourself" mentality takes over what has traditionally been an exclusive arena dominated by aggressive estate agents. That's right, ordinary property owners just like you have sold their homes privately and countless more are putting up their properties for sale every day.

People today are used to shopping and buying online. Shopping online is convenient, it offers a wealth of information, and it's safe. If you've ever sold anything online you already know the basics involved in private house sales.

First you partner with a reputable online private house sale portal. From there you take over the role of estate agent and register the property details. The goal here is to provide as much information about your property as you can so those viewing the property online get as realistic an image as possible.

To help, be sure to upload as many images of your property as the site allows. If the site allows you to post a walk through video tour, do it. That way a prospective buyer can walk through your property any time day or night and you don't even have to be there!

Not only can you market your home and all its wonderful details, many of these sites allow you the opportunity to talk about the surrounding neighborhood. Most buyers, especially those unfamiliar with the area, are looking for a specific type of neighborhood such as family-oriented or close to certain amenities or within a specific school district. What an excellent way to further boost your property's appeal!

Setting the right price

Posting images and details about the property and the neighborhood are important, but what's really going to sell your property fast is an accurate price. But don't worry; the Internet makes it easy to research recent selling prices for comparable properties in your market.

The one thing that all successful private house sales have in common is a well thought out marketing plan. Like an estate agent, your goal is to make the availability of your property known to the widest audience possible. Besides an engaging online presence, don't forget to put a "for sale" board out front and place adverts in the local papers. That way everyone in your local market knows that your property is for sale. Even if your neighbors aren't in the market for a new home, chances are they know someone who is.
