Once upon a time, you had two options when it came to selling your home – you could work with a realtor, or you could do a “For Sale by Owner” (FSBO). The realtor option was certainly the most common, but it also required you to pay a 6% commission to the realtor when the home sold, which can be a considerable amount. The FSBO option allowed you to avoid that commission, but it also took more time and effort, and often led to a lower sale price as well. Today, there is another option – flat fee MLS listing services.
With flat fee MLS listings in Sharpes, you have the opportunity to sell your home as an FSBO, but you have the support of an agent to help you through the process. As a part of the service, you pay a flat fee to the agent, who then lists your home on local MLS and major realty websites. This is a major difference over traditional FSBO, as you won’t be required to do everything on your own, and your home will get the exposure it needs to sell quickly.
If you’re wondering why the MLS is so important, it’s simple – serious buyers and brokers use these listings when they are looking for homes. If yours isn’t listed, you could be losing out on a number of potential buyers and increased profits.
Flat fee MLS listings in Sharpes provide other benefits as well. Once you and your agent agree to a fee, you won’t be paying that 6% commission when your home sells. While you may have to pay a very small commission if your buyer uses an agent, it will likely be half the amount you would pay a traditional realtor.
Maintaining your FSBO status also allows you to locate a buyer on your own. If a private buyer contacts you, you can negotiate the sale on your own. If the buyer isn’t using an agent, you won’t have to pay a commission at all – all you will need to pay is the flat fee. This means you will see a serious increase in potential profits, without losing a large chunk to a realtor.
If you want to sell your home and keep more of your profits, flat fee MLS listings in Sharpes will help you do just that. All you have to do is contact us today to get started.
