When selling your own house, you will also have much more flexibility to haggle over price and details with an interested buyer than you would if someone else was doing the work. Let’s say you have someone there looking at your house right now. They have walked around and taken the grand tour so they’ve seen everything and some things twice. The house is perfect for them, except for one detail. Your house is on a highway and they have toddlers and a dog. They were looking for a house that has a fenced back yard and they need to move before next month.
Right there, on the spot, you can offer to build the fence for them if they simply pay for the materials. It will be ready the day they take possession of the house. With you showing your own house you have the ability to iron out wrinkles and nail down agreements that will be listed in the terms of the sale. It doesn’t get much more efficient than that. The next thing you will need to do is to fill out and file the appropriate paperwork. You’ll draw up a contract overseen by a lawyer for good measure, and meet with the buyer to sign the papers of agreement. Check to see that everything is as you promised and that the buyer also agrees. If you have the time and energy to sell your own house it’s a great way to go.
