Before taking up the task of selling my property, I thought it was worthwhile to research whether I should sell it on my own or engage an agent. Though selling with an agent was easier, it was an expensive process. And, my research revealed that the best way was to sell my property online!
Why is selling a property online a good option?
The main reason for this is that technological advancements have affected all aspects of our lives. We look for all kinds of services on our mobiles of computers. This trend is common for property buyers as well, implying that property buyers look for properties on the internet. Hence it is beneficial to advertise your property for sale on the internet.
Why do buyers prefer to search properties online?
Searching for a property online equips buyers to search properties without hiring an agent and so they save on the agent’s commission.
Looking for a property online saves time because buyers can use relevant filters and search for specific properties according to their needs.
The buyers do not need to visit a number of properties for selection. They can shortlist the ones prefer and visit only those.
Since the modern buyers are looking towards the internet to search for properties it definitely makes sense to sell my property online.
To sell my property online, all that I had to do was:
- Price it accurately.
- List it on a high-visibility portal by uploading its description, photographs, and virtual tour, etc.
- Connect with buyers.
- Negotiate and close the deal.
Benefits of selling my property online:
Selling my property online is the most inexpensive way to sell as I don’t have to pay an agent’s commission and pay only the listing charges.
When I sell without an agent I am more in control of the sales process.
I can select the right buyer for my property by directly interacting with him/her.
Since I do not have to pay a commission, I enjoy all the proceeds from the sale.
