Selling vs Listing

Listing with an agent is the traditional way to sell a house and in some special cases is still the best way to sell your property. Your total sale price may be higher when you’re listing with an agent, all the fees you’re liable for drastically reduces the total you end up with in your pocket. However, when it comes to normal property sales, listing with an agent isnt always your best option.  

Take the following scenarios into consideration, do the math on them with the estimated value of your property. You’ll be shocked what the final numbers are.

When listing with an agent:

  • Commissions: the average is 6% that is paid by you, the seller.
  • Closing Costs: the average is 2% that is paid by you, the seller.
  • Appraisals Needed: most sales are subject to appraisal.
  • Time to Sell: the average is 91 days, but can be more.
  • Closing Date: the average timeframe is between 30 and 60 days after accepting the offer.
  • Repairs: negotiated during the inspection period meaning you could be stuck fixing the house you’re getting rid of! 

Two other things you should note are the inspection and financing contingency period and the number of showings. During the inspection and financing contingency period the buyer has the opportunity to back out due to a failed inspection or a failure to secure a loan to purchase the property. This means you could be going through multiple rounds of potential buyers before you actually get to move on to the next step. The number of showings is something you need to consider because you may have to vacate your home multiple times per week so the agent can show it to potential buyers. This process is very costly when it comes to the time it takes and the hassle of having to plan your day around strangers roaming around your house.
