I know this has been asked before... But I was hoping to pick your brains about a particular scenario a family member is dealing with. Property for sale -5 acres of pasture -Very high spec 30+ square home desigened for entertaining with a double garage/workshop -Lovely undercover and landscaped outdoor entertaining area -20 minutes to Hobart (in the nice direction aka the channel) -Spectacular water views Owner is currently getting quotes from agents which are almost $40k. Some are willing to negotiate down to approx $30k (since the owner just purchased off them recently). The property is extremely well presented and will sell itself. The owner isn't sure that the agents will help push the price up $30-$40k to make their commission worth while. The owners have previously subdivided, selling the blocks themselves and as a result are confident in their ability to deal with potential purchasers. Other than saving on commission the home was built by the owners and has a number of technology features to improve lifestyle and reduce energy use ect that the agents do not appreciate. This is a unique home that the agents seem to want to fit into their simplistic boxes (e.g. does it have a heat pump?). Whilst I am sceptical about selling DIY, I am also of the belief this house will sell itself and the people looking in this mid $800k+ are more likely to be more mature and happy to deal with owners. Agents sale estimates are all over the place due to the lack of houses at this end of the market. Any thoughts on selling higher end homes without an agent or any recommendations for services to help you sell yourself (with access to the Domain/RE.com.au). Thanks in advance!
