Should I hire a real estate agent or sell my home directly to an investor?

Working with an agent: Pros and cons

Pros:

  • The agent has sold before. So he knows the process inside out.
  • You won’t need to negotiate; the agent will do it for you.
  • The agent will guide you step by step.
  • The amount you receive could be very close to the asking price.

Cons:

  • You’ll have to pay for the renovations.

  • You’ll need to clean the house.
  • You’ll have to wait while the agent shows your home to buyers. (This can take months.)
  • This means you’ll have to pay bills, taxes and insurance while the property sits unsold.
  • You’ll have to pay commissions to your agent.
  • The amount you receive may not be very close to the asking price.

What’s the best option for you?

Most of the time, just a few questions are enough to determine this.

  1. How fast do you want to sell?
  2. Would you rather take the gamble of seeing IF you can get the market price (but spend more beforehand) or know immediately how much you’ll receive (and save on expenses)?

Once you’ve answered these questions, you’ll have the answer to that question you’ve been asking yourself: ” Should I hire a real estate agent in Montreal or sell my home directly to an investor? “
