Taking The Sting Out of Your Home Sale

May 30, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 101

It can be quite a shock to sell your home through a local real estate agent only to find out that he or she gets several thousand dollars in commission once the deal is finalized. Plus, it is often very inconvenient to use an agent as you have to follow his or her directions which often consists of things you would rather not do such as re-arrange your furniture or even get rid of furnishings your agent doesn't like just to have your house seen by prospective buyers.However, if you were to skip using a realtor all together and place a 'for sale by owner' sign in your front yard, you are the person who is in charge of everything associated with selling your home.

It is quite easy to find a company today which for just a few hundred dollars, will provide you with all the tools and information you need to effectively and quickly sell your home. Many people are using these companies to conduct private house sales because by doing so they can avoid having to pay an agent a load of money. Plus, who can better promote your home than you? Not an agent, that's for sure! You know everything there is to know about your home, correct? When you are able to meet with each prospective buyer, you will have the opportunity to point out your home's great features which will go far in helping you sell it for the price you want - allowing you to make that private real estate sale and save commission to boot!

A company which provides commission free real estate or CFRE services, will post your no agent property on leading real estate websites and even on Facebook and Twitter. You also will typically get a 'for sale by owner' sign, a 'sold' sticker and a complete information packet which provides you with very clear, step-by-step instructions as to how to go about selling your home. You also can expect to be helped by an expert if you should have any questions. And, it is common for this type of company to offer negotiation services which is a real bonus if you happen to feel as though you cannot effectively work out a deal with a prospective buyer. While there may be a fee charged for this service, you still will be selling your private real estate without having to pay a commission fee as there is no such fee charged in the for sale by owner market.

Why pay a not-so-nice real estate agent thousands and thousands of dollars to do a job that you can do yourself? It does not make much sense, you would have to agree - especially in today's turbulent economy! Private house sales are happening daily and are becoming more and more common. An increasing number of home owners are realizing that they can truly take the sting out of commission-based real estate deals by simply becoming their own realtors and placing 'for sale by owner' signs on their properties.

Commission Free Real Estate offers their vendors the chance to market and sell their own home just like an agent. They offer extremely competitive packages for anyone looking to use a for sale by owner or private house sales service to sell real estate privately - visit
