Are you selling a chalet, cabin or cottage? You might be thinking it is worthwhile to save a little and try and sell your property privately. We are here to tell you this is a mistake. While you might save a few dollars on commission costs you risk losing so much more by taking a serious risk. Here are the 4 risks of trying to sell your recreational property privately.
- You Overvalue or Undervalue the Property
- You Think Your Property Looks Great
- You Market It By Yourself
- You Try And Negotiate
Do you know how to negotiate a deal without scaring your buyers away? Probably not. Negotiation in real estate is a trade skill and unlike other industries. A real estate agent can juggle multiple offers while weighing them against each other to get a higher offer. For an inexperienced individual, this will be a shocking wake up call. People in this position often take the first offer they get.
On top of these four risks, there is also the added stress of paperwork, financing and potentially working with a buyer’s agent. In the long run, you might save some commission money but you risk losing so much more. A good agent is worth every dime.
