1. No commission to pay
Of course the main advantages of selling your own property is that you do not have to pay to a Real Estate Agent or Broker a commission, which is usually set at a perventage of the final selling price.
2. Choosing your own marketing strategy
By selling your own property, you can choose and decide on how to do your advertising and promotions. No person can market your property better than yourself - the owner.
3. Showing prospects
Needless to say that the best person to show a property to a prospect is the owner. As most owners have great pride in their property this certainly will be an advantage during the viewing.
