Pitfalls of Private Sale

Selling a home is a complicated process, and people think they will save a lot of time and money “going it alone”.

However home owners who endeavour to sell their home privately may actually end up losing money and wasting time.

Most home owners may only sell two or three times in their lifetime and as a private home seller, you can be tempted to initially overprice your home. This can mean your property may remain on the market for a long time. You may then have to accept a “fire sale” if the need to sell become urgent which can cost you many thousands of dollars.

There are a number of legal requirements related to selling that must be adhered to. Overlooking one of the many legal obligations may also prove costly.
