How to Quickly Sell Your Home Online

Nowadays, anyone can buy everything online, so why not a house?

According to the National Association of Realtors, 57% of home buyers start their search online. Selling your home online makes it easy for buyers to view photos, videos, and other details about your property whenever they want, and it gives you access to a wide range of potential buyers both locally and internationally. This increased exposure could result in quicker responses and even more rapid sales.

Additionally, online listings are typically less expensive than traditional methods. You can avoid expenses by reaching a large audience for relatively less money than print advertising or other traditional advertising channels.

You can also increase your online listing’s reach by sharing it on social media. The listing may be shared by friends and family, which increases the chance that word-of-mouth will bring in a potential buyer.

Sell to an Instant Buyer (iBuyer)

An iBuyer is a company that buys homes straight from the owners. These companies will quickly make an offer and spare you the trouble of selling, marketing, and showing your home since they use computer algorithms to determine home prices.

If you need to sell quickly or don’t want to deal with the hassle of a traditional sale, selling to an iBuyer can be convenient; however, you might not make as much profit as you would if you sold the home the traditional way. iBuyers aren’t available in all regions, and their standard service fees are around 5 percent.

Sell with a Real Estate Agent

Working with a real estate agent has many advantages in terms of costs, market expertise, and negotiation strategy. They are experts at listing your home, they are versed in the local market, and they know how to take advantage of multiple offers to secure the best terms and the highest price!

Real estate agents typically charge a commission of five to six percent of the sale price of your home. However, they take care of the listing, marketing, scheduling, and paperwork on your behalf.

Sell it Yourself

Another option is to list your house online as a “For Sale By Owner (FSBO) property” on your own. A FSBO sale gives you the opportunity to handle all aspects of the transaction by yourself, saving you money on real estate commissions by removing the need for an agent.

However, you’ll also have to take care of all the paperwork, market your home, schedule showings, and design the listing. This model can be a great, cost-effective way to sell your house, but depending on who you ask, it can also be very stressful and lead to a smaller profit.


Selling your home by yourself has become more appealing and convenient thanks to the internet, but it might not be as simple as it looks. There is more to selling your home online than simply taking pictures and uploading them to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
