What is a Private Seller?
Private Sellers are property owners who sell their houses without using an estate agent. Private Sellers thus avoid the estate agents commission when selling their property. Estate agents in Ireland charge on average 1.5% commission to sell property, and VAT at 23% is then added to this commission. (See examples of commission charges)
Sellityourself.ie offers you the option of selling your property without an estate agent for a fixed and one time fee of only €150.

What is a Private House Sale?
A private house sale is a house that is for sale by it's owner. Buyers contact the property owners directly without going through an estate agent.
Is an estate estate agent necessary to sell property?
There is a common misconception that estate agents are actually necessary to sell a house or land and that they have some involvement in the legal side of the property sale. This is not so. Your solicitor handles all legal aspects of the property sale, regardless of whether you sell your property on Sellityourself.ie or with an Estate Agent. The estate agent plays no part in the legal side of your house sale.
Once you have found a buyer for your property through Sellityourself.ie you will instruct your solicitor to close the sale in exactly the same manner as you would if an estate agent had found a buyer for you. To find a solicitor in your area, please click here.
