How To Sell A House Off Market In the Bay Area Without A Real Estate Agent

In this blog post you’ll learn our best 3 tips about how to sell a House off the market in the Bay Area without a real estate agent.

When it comes to selling your house, you have 2 options….

 

The first option is to sell your house through a real estate agent. This way can be expensive since the agent will charge you a commission for their services – and that commission can be anywhere from 5% of the sale price or higher (often thousands of dollars).

 

The second option is to sell your house without a real estate agent. This way can be much cheaper, since you won’t have to pay an agent thousands of dollars in commission – that’s money that stays in your pocket.

Here are 3 tips about how to sell a House off market in the Bay Area without a real estate agent:

 

Sell A House Off Market – Tip #1: Clean Up The House

 

The more “ready-to-live-in” your house is, the higher price you might be able to get for your house. So this might involve some cleaning up or even fixing up. If there are renovations that you’ve started, you might want to hire a contractor to finish them. Maybe the roof needs to be reshingled. Perhaps you should paint your house.

 

Sell A House Off Market – Tip #2: Tell Everyone!

Next, tell everyone you know that you’re selling your house. Post about it on Facebook. Find a local “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO) website or newspaper and post there. Put up flyers at the grocery store. In other words: Just tell everyone you can… and ask them to tell everyone they can.

 

Did you know there’s a way to sell that’s even easier?

 

It can be expensive and time consuming to sell a house this way.

On the other hand, there are some sellers who need a custom solution due to either the property’s condition or the seller’s personal situation, or a combination of the two.

When the property is in really bad shape, they’re likely going to sell to an investor, so it may make sense to save money on commissions and find their own investor.

Some examples of personal situations that we can help with are: hoarding, pre-foreclosure or other financial issues that require a fast home sale, house with non-paying tenants or squatters, severely delinquent property taxes, homeowners who want to rent back the home longer than normal, or sellers who value privacy and/or are embarrassed by their home.

If your seller lead meets these criteria, you should propose the idea of making an introduction to me. You can simply suggest to them that your partner or colleague buys houses and ask if they are interested in speaking with me. Remember, you are not performing real estate agent duties. See our disclaimer below. The main thing to keep in mind at this point is to qualify them as a good fit or not. I can help you with the documentation and process things.
