What you need to know about selling and buying again
Getting your home sold
You want to get the best price you can for your property and you want to sell it as quickly as you can. You have two options when selling your home:
Use an estate agent
A estate agent will handle everything for you:
- Advertise your property
- Find prospective buyers
- Negotiate on the price
- Complete all relevant documentation with you such as the “Offer to Purchase” from the buyer
- Liaise with attorneys.
You will pay a commission to the agent as a percentage of the sale price.
Sell it yourself
When selling your home yourself:
- You will need to do all the administration and negotiating yourself.
- You will need to manage all risks and challenges along the way yourself.
- You will have to take the time to show, sell and find buyers.
You pay no extra fees or commission.
The steps to selling your home
Choosing to sell your home and buy another is a big decision. It's not hard and there are several ways to do it. But doing it properly means you will make the most out of your sale.
