Why Buy Property Privately?

When you buy your property through an agent, an agency fee is included in the advertised price. Generally agency fees can range from 3% to 10% of a property's value, this is factored in to the advertised price of your property. For example:

Asking Price €150,000 €150,000
+ Agency Fees at 10% €0 €15,000
You Pay €150,000 €165,000


When you buy a property through an agent, you can be required pay up to 10% more than the property is worth. More important than that, if a property is on the market with an estate agent, the fee may in some instances push it out of your price range, and you may miss out on owning your dream home because of agency fees.

When you buy your new property from a private seller, you can get 'more house for your money', and there will probably be more properties in your price bracket thanks to the fact that price-inflating agency fees are not a factor.

An estate agent, or an employee of the estate agent will take you to view a property. They often build up a large portfolio of properties, so they won't necessarily be particularly familiar with the property you're interested in, the surrounding area, or even what it's like to live there from day to day.

When you buy through a private seller, you interact directly with the property's current owner. They know everything there is to know about the property you're interested in, they know everything about the surrounding area, and they know from experience what living in, running, or refurbishing the property is like. It's a much more personal experience.
