How to sell your house privately.

More and more homeowners choose to sell their house privately. It’s not a surprise, as people choose to save on estate agent fees and with fast growing computer technology and internet it became very easy to do it yourself.

So, if you are wondering how to sell your house privately, there are a few things to remember:

Prepare your house for sale.

How to sell your house privately? First of all you have to prepare your house for sale: tidy up inside and outside the house and take some  pictures which will show your house in the best shape and light. Ensure you use a good camera and rooms are well light up.  Some pictures on the internet appear so unclear and dark and often messy, that people searching for houses just click away. Write a clear and honest description as well, so when people see your ad, they can imagine your house and won’t get disappointed later.

Ensure you use a Solicitor.

When you think about how to sell your house privately, ensure you choose an efficient solicitor to represent your interests. You will have to cover the solicitor costs, but it’s better to pay some money in advance, than a lot more money later if something goes wrong.  It’s very important to find an efficient solicitor, who will deal with your case fast, as it might take a few months for the sale to go through just because solicitors were not in a rush.

Where to advertise when selling privately.

Where to advertise is a bit part of the question of how to sell your house privately. You can advertise in the newspaper, but it seems that newspapers just don’t work that well any more and internet is taking over with a wider audience and cheaper prices.

So, go on the internet…. and you have a great choice of companies offering their services. Again, there are a few options here. You can register with a “Sale by owner” websites and directories and on-line estate agents, some free and some you have to pay for. Once registered you can post your house description and pictures onto their site. Use a few websites to increase a visibility of your ad.

Who will buy my house quick?

Another option, especially if you need to sell your house quickly is to contact private companies who buy houses. There are a few of them out there, so make your choice carefully.  Most of these companies charge no fees and work fast. The biggest difference is how much they can offer you for your house, which could be from 75% to 100%, and also sometime they act as a middleman between you and investors, so consider who you would like to deal with and do your research.
