Selling a property without an agency is not an easy task, especially if you have never done it before. The doubts and concerns about the steps to follow so that everything goes well and we do not have problems during or after the sale, are really many:
At what price could we sell our property, how should we prepare it for the visits, what marketing actions should we take to advertise it, what bureaucratic procedures should be carried out, who will carry out these procedures, etc.
These are just some of the questions that are probably already swirling around in your head since you made the decision to sell your property, but have you really thought about everything that goes with it?
We are going to explain in 8 steps how you can sell your home without intermediaries so that you can decide whether to undertake the “adventure” on your own or rely on a professional real estate agency.
The first thing is to prepare for the adventure:
Step 1: Conduct a market research to determine when is the best time to sell your home and analyze the current market in your area to establish a price.
Step 2 Prepare the legal documents. To solve any inconvenience that may harm the sale of your house, it is necessary to have all the documents ready, such as the nota simple, energy certificate, house plans, earnest money contract, tax payment receipts, deed of sale, etc.
Step 3: Prepare your communication and marketing plan in which you will include all the actions that you will carry out to obtain the greatest number of potential clients interested in buying your property, for example: Flyers, For Sale Poster, organize an Open House, Videos with the possibility of virtual visits, etc.
Step 4: Prepare your home for sale, try to create a visually appealing first look, depersonalizing your home completely. Minor preparations, such as fixing a doorknob or painting can help make a positive impact on potential buyers. You can take a home staging course to get that stunning first impression.
Step 5: Hire a professional photographer. Professionally photographed homes sell 42% faster. Property photos are usually the first thing buyers see on any portal, social network or advertisement so always make sure you have professional quality photos.
Step 6: Online Advertising in Real Estate Portals and Social Networks, this is one of the most important aspects when we talk about selling a house without real estate, you must choose one or more websites where to publish your home and prepare an attractive presentation and create a striking brochure to send it by email or post it on social networks near our house, it is best to create a website where all this information appears to be able to update everything easily and give credibility as real sellers.
Step 7: Manage the calls and emails you receive from potential buyers.
Step 8: Filter the visits, you will have to have prepared a series of key questions that will help you not to waste time and to detect those who are really interested.
