Different Ways to Sell Your Home
When it comes to selling your home, you have different, options. Let’s walk through each so you can decide which would be the best option for you.
Option 1: Sell Your Home With Full Service
What does full service mean? With this option, you get all the benefits of working with an agent and all of the services that come with one. You get the power of having your home listed on the MLS, you get the negotiating power that comes with an experienced agent, and you get the knowledge of the selling process so you don’t have to worry about missing any important steps or not knowing how to deal with the paperwork.
When working with an experienced real estate agent or broker, and getting their full service, you benefit from the advertising the agent will run, any social media following this agent already has to showcase your home, access to 100’s of real estate portals, and more. This will ensure you have buyers knocking on your door.
Many other benefits come with the full service provided by an agent. Click below to continue reading more about what it means to sell your home full service.
Option 2: Sell Your Home With Limited Service
What exactly does limited service mean? This is when you do have an agent, but you ask them for reduced or limited services. This also means reduced commission.
This means you get access to some traditional benefits such as having your home listed in the MLS, but you take on some of the responsibilities for selling your home, such as taking your own pictures.
This is a good option if you know you have a home that will sell quickly. You may be in a desired school district in a popular part of town. Your home may be remodeled and have great amenities, such as a pool. You may be able to price on the lower end because the property values in your neighborhood are high.
For all these reasons, this may be a good option for you to sell your home quickly and make a little more off the sale. However, if you do not believe that your home would be easy to sale, this may not be a great option because you may need all of the benefits an agent brings like the marketing, network of interested buyers and negotiating power.

Option 3: Sell Your Home via Online Auction
If your home in not in the greatest condition, has not been updated or remodeled, and needs a lot of work, you know you will probably not get top dollar for it. You may also not be in a desirable neighborhood, making it even more difficult to find buyer interest. Or maybe it has just been abandoned for a while, and you do not have the time or money to invest in it, and just want to sell it quickly. In these scenarios, selling your home via online auction may be the best option for you.
There are many buyers and/or investors willing to buy homes at a lower cost, so they can renovate and then re-sell the home for a profit. If you want to sell a property very quickly, and the profit is not as important to you, online auction may be a quick way to move forward.

Option 4: Sell The Home Yourself
Another way to sell your home would be to sell your property yourself. This is better known as “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO). With this option, you would bypass listing your house on the MLS.
Most buyers that go this route pay a realtor a flat fee to help with the paperwork. Many FSBO sellers also negotiate a commission fee with a buyer’s agent to encourage them to bring interested buyers to the table.
Selling your home yourself does require you to do some of the heavy lifting an agent or broker would do on your behalf, if you were using one. It also needs to qualify. Depending on the condition of your home, this may be your best option.
