Selling a house without the help of a real estate agent: risks and dangers

Every day I come into contact with people who are trying to sell their property privately on their own. Essentially, the reason for this choice is always the same: they are convinced that they are saving the real estate agent’s fee. NOTHING MORE WRONG.

The sale or purchase of a property hides so many pitfalls, of which private sellers are not aware, that it makes one shiver. And you, dear owner, are the one and only responsible  if there are problems with the property from an urban planning and cadastral point of view https://www.missourivalleyhomes.com/

Below is a list of more or less important problems that you will surely encounter if you are trying to sell your property on your own:

– do you know the town planning and cadastral regulations to check if the property is compliant and marketable?

– are you able to correctly read a property title and verify that there are no constraints of any kind that could compromise the sale?

– do you know how to correctly draw up a sales compromise, what are the essential contractual elements and how to write them correctly?

– do you know the various differences between payment instruments and, specifically, that between the down payment, the confirmatory deposit and the penitential deposit?

– in the event that the buyer has to access a mortgage (which is much more than likely) do you know how to manage the negotiation and not get trapped by it?

– Do you know what a suspension clause is?

– Do you know how to behave with regard to existing plants?

Do you know what to do to avoid advertising fines?

– Did you know that keeping the buyer in the dark about condominium problems and hidden defects in the apartment can make you lose your deposit?

– Are you able not to get emotionally involved in the negotiation with the buyer, avoiding losing money?

The real estate agent is a professional with all the required skills and is the person who starts and ends the whole sales or purchase process with you:

it is he who verifies the documentation of origin.
