Although selling your home in Florida without an agent may seem a difficult proposition, there are in fact plenty of options available that will enable you to do so. Real estate agents normally charge a high rate of commission from both, the buyer and the seller. If you want to save the amount of commission payable to the agent, you can opt for the other means available.

If you invest in properties for making money, then you need to start selling them on your own. This will help you to gain the right experience and develop the right negotiation skills. This is especially true if you are planning to become a full time real estate investor. You would need to learn all the basic tricks of the trade. You might have to face problems during the first few deals, but with time you will learn how to attract the right kind of buyers. Beginners can also try some of the listed means available for selling properties without an agent, if they are willing to take the risks involved.

Use the Internet:

In order to sell your home in Florida without an agent, you can log on to peer-to-peer websites and post the details of your property to attract buyers. You should be aware that these websites are very different from the typical broking websites operated by broking companies. Peer-to-peer websites often have thousands of registered users under different forums and groups. You can post your property details in the items to sell section and wait for the enquiries to pour in.

Property details should include everything from the offer price, location, available built-in area and other description. You can also include photographs of your property as well photographs of the locality. This will help in creating a good first impression on prospective buyers. Once you have received an adequate amount of enquires, you can select a buyer that offers the best price for your Florida home. You can then ask the buyer to deposit a certain amount in an escrow account as a legal confirmation of his offer. All other formalities can then be completed at a later date.

Sell at auction houses:

You can also sell your property at auction houses, if you do not want to use the services of a real estate agent. Buyers are often attracted to auction houses as they expect to get excellent bargains. This however does not mean that you will have to sell your property below the existent market rate.

The initial bidding price may be low, but in course of the bidding process, the bid price keeps increasing and if you are lucky you may even get a buyer who is willing to pay higher than the average market rate. The auction houses do charge a fee, but the amount that is charged is less than what you would usually pay a real estate agent.

Another option:

You can also advertise your property in popular newspapers and magazines to attract buyers, without an agent.
