Why you shouldn’t try and sell your home yourself

first_imgHow do you market your property? The major listings portals don’t accept ads from sale-by-owner clients, so you’re limited to the For-Sale-By-Owner websites, which are less well-known. And creating a listing that showcases your property to its best vantage point is a skill. What other marketing channels will you consider? Which are best suited to your property and your target buyer? And how do you intend to get the best value for money with each ad that you buy? Marketing is complicated and often an agent will have a support staff that will help with the marketing decisions. This is a commonly misunderstood part of the property sale process, with many sellers eventually seeking advice and support from an experienced sales agent to find out where their marketing campaign went wrong and why there are no qualified leads. Pricing your home is complicated Finally, there are myriad decisions that an agent will make as part of the process of selling your home. An agent has usually made these same decisions thousands of times before and have a lot of experience in selling properties. They’ll understand the market better than most because that’s where they operate every day. It’s easy to make a mistake when you’re navigating a completely foreign situation. Some people who choose to sell their property themselves will have some experience in selling a property before. Even then, there are risks, because the legislation is likely to have changed, the real estate landscape is different and there are so many more options today than there were even five years ago. Think carefully before you choose to sell your property yourself. If you choose to forego the expertise of an agent, at least make sure you have a legal expert or a legal practitioner on hand who can help with the legal issues. Do you know how to manage the contract part of the process? What happens if your buyer wants to make changes to the contract? Are you familiar with the legislation and do you know enough to navigate the legal issues yourself? You don’t know what you don’t know More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020How much should you list your home for? Price it too low and you’ll miss out on potentially tens of thousands of dollars. Price it too high and it will sit on the market and become stale, with no serious offers being made. It’s hard to get buyers to take a fresh look at a home that has sat on the market for a while, even after a price reduction. Potential buyers may wonder what is wrong with the home, and why it’s still sitting on the market weeks or months later. Negotiating is challenging Worried real estate agent and house for saleWhen you are thinking about selling your home, the idea of paying fees to an agent could seem like a good way to save some money. Many who consider selling their home themselves reason that nobody is more motivated to sell the property than they are! They also suggest that they know the property better than the agent and are the best equipped to answer potential buyers’ questions. So what do you need an agent for? I’m so glad you asked! It’s time consuming Do you back yourself against potentially very skilled negotiators? You never know who your buyer is going to be but if you use an agent, you know that you’ve got someone at the table representing your interests who has likely negotiated many contracts before and potentially negotiated many buyers higher than the point they started at. There are legal risks When you sell your property, you are in charge of everything. That means everything. And even if you’re the kind of person who is really organised, this doesn’t mean you’re the kind of person with plenty of time on your hands to do all the jobs that need doing. The list of tasks is extensive. Marketing last_img read more

Spurs ‘happy to co-operate’ with FA

first_imgAndre Villas-Boas says Tottenham are happy to co-operate with the Football Association over the governing body’s worries surrounding “Yid” chanting. “It’s a sensible situation for Spurs fans, but I’m pretty sure they don’t use it in a negative way.” Last season the Society of Black Lawyers threatened to report any fan at White Hart Lane – whether in the home or away end – to the police if they chanted the Y-word. The previous season Jewish Chelsea fan David Baddiel launched a high-profile campaign to rid the game of the term. Spurs fans – some of whom were targeted in racist attacks in Europe last season – responded by continuing to chant the term throughout their games. As a means of defiance Spurs fans have coined the term “Yid” and often describe themselves as the “Yid Army” or “Yiddos”. Despite this, the FA still says that the use of the word could be termed offensive. Tottenham issued a statement on Wednesday promising to consult with fans and the FA over the matter and Villas-Boas backed the club’s stance on Thursday. “The club has issued a statement that is strong and shows intent to co-operate with the FA regarding the use of the word,” the Spurs manager said. Villas-Boas also backed Tottenham’s assertion that the word is used as a “defensive mechanism” which “deflects” the anti-Semitic abuse they have had to endure for many years. “It’s understandable our fans don’t use it in a negative way,” he said. “It’s something they chant with pride and it’s very difficult to differentiate the wrong and the right of what they do. “Because of that the FA has come out with a statement of intent. The club are showing signs of co-operation. The FA issued a statement on Monday warning fans that the use of the word “Yid” at football grounds could result in a criminal conviction or a banning order. Opposing fans cruelly use the term as a means of abuse towards Tottenham, who have strong links with the Jewish community. Press Associationlast_img read more
