Should You Use A Flat Fee Listings Service? Selling your home can be easy. Let our experienced staff help you make it happen.
Flat Fee Listing Services: The Best Of Both Worlds?
The idea of the flat fee listing service is simple: pay one low, uniform fee for a realtor’s services instead of paying the standard realtor commission of 6-7%. In theory, you’re able to save thousands of dollars while still receiving the benefits of working with a realtor.
The Truth Of Most Flat Fee Listing Services: You’re On Your Own Now
In reality, the flat fee listing is often an indication that you’re not going to get much help selling your home from your realtor. After all, once those few services are checked off (listing your home on the MLS, setting your listing price, etc.), what reason does the realtor have to continue selling your home?
In reality, listing your home is just the beginning of selling your home for what it’s worth. Now begins a period of showings, Open Houses, sometimes-lengthy negotiations, a series of key legal approvals, and mountains of paperwork on the way to closing.
And, unfortunately, in a flat fee listing service, you’ll likely be doing these things on your own. And, even more unfortunately, those steps are the ones that decide how much money you’re actually able to pocket for your home.
In short, it pays to have a trained, qualified expert on your side, walking with you through the sometimes-stressful process of selling a home. Someone who can:
- Work through the paperwork: You won’t believe how heavily regulated the housing industry is.
- Supply critical sales skills: Even the best of homes don’t sell themselves– especially if you want your asking price.
- Handle the negotiations: A professional realtor acts as a “buffer” in heated transactional negotiations.
- Understand market conditions: Get help understanding what’s going on in today’s market– and what it means for you.
It’s possible to find highly-qualified buyers interested in your home, to sell your home faster, and to get your full asking price… all without pulling your hair out.
