The first Canadian real estate board originated in Vancouver in 1888 when a commercial hotel was worth $600. But before there were real estate agents, self-directed buying and selling of buildings was normal. Today it’s still a choice, but there is also an easier alternative to DIY house selling.
Suppose you are looking at alternative ways to sell your home in the London, St. Thomas, Sarnia, Kitchener, Windsor areas, or anywhere in Western, Eastern, or North Eastern Ontario. In that case, you may find that many willing companies try to educate people about selling their houses on their own. After all, it’s dead easy with house sales currently so strong, right?
Helpful tips are known by rote: preparing your home for sale, organizing for open houses, and keeping your home tidy. Advice is practical, but self-directing a money deal involving the highest dollar figure you will likely ever engage in is daunting, and a first-time seller can quadruple that feeling.
