Selling your home in Floridana Beach can be an exciting process for those moving on to bigger and better things. Before you head out and find a local realtor to help you with the selling process, there are a few things you should consider.
Selling your home with a realtor is a common practice, but this is mostly due to it being the only option beyond “For Sale by Owner” (FSBO) for so many years. While you do have the benefit of having a realtor to walk you through the process and negotiate with buyers, it also costs a significant amount for those services. Most realtors charge a 6% commission when your home sells, and that means a large chunk is taken right out of your profits from selling your home.
If you are looking for a way to sell that will allow you to keep more of the money at closing, you can always consider FSBO. However, you need to be prepared to put in considerable time and legwork in order to find a buyer. You won’t have a realtor or broker working with you, which means you will likely not have access to major realtor sites for your listing. This can become problematic, as it might take considerably longer for your home to sell – especially considering most serious buyers consult MLS listings before looking anywhere else.
Another option for selling your Floridana Beach home is flat fee MLS listings. This service requires you to pay a flat fee in order for a broker to work with you to get your home listed. Your broker will add your home to the MLS and other major sites, ensuring your home receives the attention it needs to sell quickly.
During the process, you will also retain your FSBO status if you desire. This means private buyers can contact you directly, and the two of you can negotiate the sale. Whether you negotiate the sale or your broker finds a buyer, the end result is the same – you will not have to pay your broker a commission on the sale. Instead, you will sell your home for the flat fee, and you get to keep all those profits you would lose with a traditional realtor.
