So, you’re ready to sell your home, but the thought of dealing with an agent isn’t appealing.
The good news is you can start selling your home without having to hire a real estate agent. Here’s how to do it.
Research & Prepare Your Home
The better informed you are about the real estate market in Calgary, the more successful you will be when selling your home. You should research comparable homes that have recently sold in your area so that you can price yours appropriately. Additionally, take some time to spruce up your home and make sure it looks as nice as possible for potential buyers who come for a tour. Even simple things like tidying up the yard and giving your front door a fresh coat of paint can make all the difference in how quickly you are able to sell.
Find Buyers & Make A Deal
The next step is to find potential buyers for your house. If you are comfortable using social media, try posting about your home on Facebook or Instagram and asking friends and family if they know anyone looking for a new place. You can also post about it on local classifieds websites such as Craigslist or Kijiji. Once you’ve found some interested parties, set up times for them to come to view the property and make sure they bring pre-approval letters from their lenders so that they are serious buyers. Then, negotiate with them until you reach an agreement that works for both of you—this could involve anything from agreeing on a final price or allowing them time to purchase furniture before moving in.
Finalize The Sale & Move Out
Once the deal is finalized, there are still several steps left before closing the sale on your house. The buyer will need to conduct a home inspection and appraisal to ensure everything is structurally sound and worth what they agreed upon paying for it; then both parties will need to go through escrow and sign closing documents at the title company’s office after which point the sale will officially be complete! Finally, once all that is done, it’s time for you to pack up and move out!
Conclusion: Selling your home without an agent in Calgary can be intimidating but doesn’t have to be if done correctly!
By researching comparable houses in your area, preparing your house for showings, finding potential buyers online (or through word-of-mouth), negotiating terms with them until both parties agree on something satisfactory (price or otherwise), conducting inspections/appraisals/escrow paperwork at closing time – voila! Now, all that’s left is packing up and moving out! With just these few steps, selling your home without an agent will no longer seem like such an impossible feat – best of luck!
