Alternative Ways to Sell Your Home

When it’s time to sell your home, it is easy but a little expensive to go the traditional route and hire a real estate agent to help you sell your home. They have the resources, contacts and infrastructure in place to facilitate the sale of your home and relieve you from having to do the legwork yourself. However, it has never been easier than right now to sell your home yourself using alternative home selling methods such as:

  • For Sale by Owner (FSBO)

Finding FSBO home selling resources and strategies on the Internet is easy. Many communities have their own FSBO websites that make selling your home much easier than it used to be. They provide tools to build a page for your home with a map, pictures, contact information and plenty of showcase space.

  • Flat fee MLS listings

Instead of paying a commission to a real estate professional to sell your home, some brokers offer flat fee listings on the Multiple Listing Service so anyone in the country can browse your MLS listing. However, when the home sells, the seller still must pay a 2.5 to 3 percent Buyer’s Agent Commission to the broker who brings a buyer but it is still much less expensive that the typical 4 to 7 percent a traditional broker will charge.

  • Low cost brokers

These brokers market your home for sale at a very competitive price, which can save a home seller a significant amount of money through greatly-reduced sales commissions. They handle all the paperwork, vet the qualifications of potential buyers, help you negotiate the best price and much more.The unequaled marketing power of the Internet allows home sellers to pursue other methods to sell their home that save them money and attract qualified buyers. There’s plenty of information online that people can use to sell their home and, if homeowners are willing to do some of the work themselves, they could save many thousands of dollars.
