Canaveral Groves is a great place to live, but if you are trying to sell your home, it is a great place for that as well. When selling a home, you do have options – you can work with a realtor or complete a “For Sale by Owner” (FSBO). You also have the option of choosing flat fee MLS listings. Each of these processes are very different, and understanding those differences is an important part of making the best decision for selling your home.
Most people are already familiar with the realtor-based sale – you work with a realtor who essentially takes over control of selling your home. He or she advertises, negotiates and handles contracts, all with the understanding that you will pay a large commission when your home sells. This commission is usually around 6%, which means you lose thousands of dollars at closing.
FSBO is self-explanatory. You are selling your home yourself, and handling your own advertising and negotiations. This process requires considerably more of your time and effort and potentially minimizes your exposure to major realty websites, but allows you to keep all the profits from the sale.
Flat fee MLS listings in Canaveral Groves is essentially a combination of realtor and FSBO. You play a flat fee to have your home listed by a broker who will work with you throughout the process. He or she will handle advertising and making sure your home is on major listing sites, and may help with contracts and closings depending on the options you choose. During the sale, you retain the right to negotiate with buyers if you choose to, or you can allow the broker to do so. When your home sells, however, you won’t pay a commission to your broker. This means you keep more of the profits as you would with an FSBO, without the sting of that large commission to the realtor.
Flat fee MLS listings for your Canaveral Groves home is a great option if you want to ensure you see the most return on your investment. You save thousands on commissions, yet still have the support and assistance you need from a broker to ensure your home is noticed.
