Home-Selling Method #1: Sell Through A Real Estate
This is the traditional way to sell your home, so it’s also the most common. In this home-selling method, the homeowner chooses a real estate agent who will list the house.
The agent acts as a “middleman,” showing prospective home buyers in Columbus through your house until one of those buyers decides to buy. They’ll make an offer, the agent will negotiate on your behalf, and then you’ll close.
The timeline on this selling method can take months (the average is 3-6 months). Sellers who choose this method prefer to gamble on the timeline to do less work (the agent does the work) and with the hopes of selling at the market price. However, sellers who use this method will often need to spend money up-front to repair their house first, and then spend money after the sale on agent fees and commissions.
Home-Selling Method #2: Sell On Your Own
Of course you do. Who wouldn’t? Well, even if you don’t like the idea of listing with an agent and dealing with all that comes along with that – open houses, showings, negotiating – we have found a way for you to do it yourself and save on that pesky commission.
How are we qualified to tell you how to sell your home without an agent? Because this is what my husband did when he sold his house in Austin several years ago. He wasn’t planning on selling his house but after knocking out some interior walls he had more space than he needed so he thought maybe it was time. The first step was getting an appraisal done because who wants to waste time with a house that’s not worth anything?
Home-Selling Method #3: Sell Direct To Home Buyer In Columbus
This method of selling is gaining popularity as homeowners look for a third way to sell. This process is very different – it’s also faster, easier, and doesn’t cost the homeowner anything (so it’s not surprising that this method is gaining popularity).
Rather than listing and showing the house or negotiating, the homeowner simply sells their house direct to a professional home buyers in Columbus with cash and who is ready to buy the house as-is right now.
It’s faster – the buyer has money and is ready to buy; it’s easier on the seller – there is no expense or effort to repair the house before it’s sold; and it doesn’t cost the homeowner anything – professional home buyers (like what we do here at Flavortown Properties) usually pay closing costs and fees.
