The Downsides of Selling Your House Without an Agent


Considering selling your house without an agent can be a daunting task that requires careful consideration. While the idea of saving money on commission fees may be appealing, it is important to understand the potential downsides of handling the sale on your own.


  • Lack of Market Expertise - Without the hands-on experience and in-depth understanding of market trends an agent brings to the table, you'll have to operate with blind spots.


  • Over or Underpricing Your House - Without an agent's pricing expertise, you may set the asking price too high or too low. This can make it harder to sell or leave money on the table.


  • Missing the Mark on Staging and Repairs - You won't have an agent's advice on what you'll want to tackle before listing or how to make the house more appealing to buyers.


  • Mistakes on Legally Binding Contracts - You'll need to tackle all the paperwork and familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations. A misstep can have legal implications or cause delays.


  • Judging All Negotiations - Are you confident you can handle any pushback from the buyer's agent, attorney, appraiser and more? Agents are trained on how to negotiate with everyone involved.


  • More Difficult to be Objective - You're emotionally attached to your house and you want to net as much as you can on that sale. That can make it hard to be objective without an agent's advice.
