Selling without an agent 

If you decide to that you want to sell your property without the assistance of an agent, you will need to do quite a bit of homework before tackling the job yourself.

The first thing you need to know is that a residential property cannot be advertised for sale until a Contract of Sale has been prepared. It is important that you consult your solicitor or conveyancer about preparing the contract to make sure that everything is in order.

One of the benefits of selling your property yourself is the chance to make a financial saving through not having to pay commission to an agent.

The broad steps involved in selling your property without an agent are as follows:

  • have your property valued
  • decide the purchase price
  • advertise the house
  • exchange contracts
  • settle.

Before deciding to go through with the sale of your property without an agent, you should thoroughly research what you will need to do at every stage of the sale process.
