Many people that sell their home or property choose to sell it themselves as opposed to going through a real estate agency, bank or lending institution. There are different reasons why they may choose to do this. They may be selling it to a friend or relative and want to avoid or eliminate the middle man.
Another reason may be to avoid having to pay commission to a real estate agent for selling your property. If you’re selling your property for a large sum of money, the commission the real estate agency will earn can be quite substantial. When you are the sell that holds the trust deed on the property sold, things can go smoothly or problems may arise.
