The Dangers of Selling House in Australia
Are there any dangers or things to be wary of when I Sell my own Home?
Yes, theres a few minor things to look out for with Private House Sales. Firstly, be wary of anyone wanting to make offers or put a contract on your property without first viewing the property. This can potentially lead to legal disputes after settlement if they arrive at the property and see something that wasn't mentioned in the property advertising.
When I Sell my House Privately, can a buyer Buy my House without first viewing it?
Yes, although this isn't always advisable with Private House Sales. However, this is becoming more and more common thanks to iphones and technology. For example, if you live in Melbourne and a buyer has contacted you from Sydney after just selling their Sydney property. They may not have time to fly down to Melbourne to physically inspect your home. A good thing to do is to do a Facetime video call with the buyer from your iPhone or smart phone. You can give the buyer a guided tour of the Home and give you both peace of mind for the purchase.
If I Sell my House online, who handles the Private House Sale settlement?
When you Sell your own Property, or Sell Without Agents, you're still conducting a normal sale, the sale way any Real Estate Agent would. You simply contact a local solicitor or conveyancer and get them to handle the legal side of the property transfer for you.
