What if you could sell by owner but with all the tools available to a licensed real estate agent (including MLS access) without paying a listing commission and not being locked into a long-term contract? Would you say no to selling faster and pocketing more money?
As a licensed broker, we can pass on these tools to you so you can achieve these goals. Our Flat Fee listing service is designed for the savvy home owner to sell faster and profit more on their sale. If you are tired of being harassed by realtors from your Zillow listing and want to upgrade to our processional, for sale by owner MLS listing service and eliminate the frustrating realtor solicitation, then Premier Flat Fee is excited to have you.
Did you know that, according the National Realtor Association (NAR), Eighty-seven percent of buyers recently purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker and ninety percent of sellers listed their homes on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)? In contrast, only eight percent of recent home sales were FSBO sales again this year.
It is also true that FSBOs typically sell for less than the selling price of other homes; FSBO homes sold at a median of $190,000 last year (up from $185,000 the year prior), and significantly lower than the median of MLS listed homes at $250,000.
The explanation is simple. The MLS gives your home more exposure leading to more demand. Basic economics tells us that more demand helps generate a higher price. Traditional real estate agents will try to tell you that the reason the homes sold for more money is due to their participation. While there are realtors that are very good at what they do, no realtor negotiates a price up an average of $65,000.
