marketing and selling of properties

What is the alternative to a traditional estate agency sale, and the FSBO concept? (FSBO For Sale By Owner, selling your property yourself, preferably under the guidance of your property lawyer). The Alternative is selling through your attorney as your realtor (Concept of Attorneys Selling Properties).

Attorneys can market and sell properties for their clients. Attorneys is exempt from the Property Practitioners Act (previously the Estate Agency Act) as the Legal Practice Council is the watchdog of attorneys and protector of the public in all matters dealt with by attorneys.

The commission or fixed fee is agreed between you and your attorney. We recommend 2,5% + VAT as a benchmark. Work out a win/win deal with your attorney for a beginning to end service of the marketing, sale and transfer of your property.
