What you do yourself, you do better! I am selling my house myself!

 “I can surely be my own real estate agent and sell my house myself. It sells itself really. I know the property like no other and can perfectly estimate its worth. With ease, I manage advertising, guiding potential buyers during their visit and price negotiations. I can just google which certificates and attestations are required. In no time, I will close this deal and move to my new home.

That didn’t go quite as smooth as expected…

  • Turns out my house is not worth as much as I thought. I’ve already lowered the price twice. Fingers crossed I now got the pricing right.
  • Despite my beautiful homemade sign in the garden, the facebook posts from family and the expensive advertisement in the Streekkrant, I hardly got any reactions at all.
  • Potential buyers wanted to visit my house at the most inconvenient times of the day. If they showed up at all.
  • Many visits ended with a "we'll let you know" followed by silence.
  • Perhaps I should have accepted that first offer.
  • I didn’t think urban planning had up to 60 days to provide that certificate. Too late.

Frustration, stress, time loss, unnecessary expenses... You could have avoided it all if you had just sought the advice of an IPI certified real estate agent. Selling properties is a craft. You wouldn’t ask your baker to repair your car, would you?
