If you wish to sell your home yourself, rather than engage a licensed real estate agent, do some homework so you understand what is involved. You still have to meet certain legal requirements when you market your property to potential buyers.
We strongly recommend that you use a solicitor to prepare the contract of sale for your property.
You must attach PAMD Form 30c - Warning statement (PDF, 210 KB) to the front page of the contract. The buyer must read and sign it before they enter into the contract.
You must also provide a five day cooling-off period.
Consider getting an independent valuation to set a realistic price. Also research the market by visiting open houses and checking the recent sale prices for similar properties.
Get a building and pest inspection report so that you can carry out any necessary repairs before the sale.
