When it comes to selling your home, you likely have two goals – to sell as quickly as possible, and to receive the most profits from the sale. While a realtor has been the most popular option for many years, it doesn’t mean it is necessarily the best one. In fact, if you are looking for increased profits, it most certainly isn’t your best option.
Realtors require a 6% commission when they sell your home in Micco. That percentage seems small at face value, but the reality is that it can be quite significant. For example, if your home sells for $300,000, you will have to pay a commission of $18,000. If you’re like most, that is a considerable amount of money to simply hand to someone else – especially if you are planning on making a down payment for a new home.
If you would rather not part with that much of your investment, flat fee MLS listings in Micco is another option you should consider. With this option, you pay a flat rate and an agent will list your home on MLS and major real estate websites. This will ensureas many potential buyers will see your home as possible, which is the key to selling quickly. When you sign up for the service, you and your agent will agree to specific amounts and percentages for commissions if they are necessary, such as in cases where the buyer has an agent, or your agent sells your home for you. Even with these commissions, they are around half of what you could expect to pay realtor.
Besides the lower fees, there are other benefits to flat fee MLS listings in Micco, as well. Unlike with realtor sales, you have the option to be involved if you desire. Private buyers can contact you directly, and you can negotiate deals with them on your own. If your deal goes through without the broker’s assistance, you won’t even have to pay him or her a commission at all – you will receive the profits minus any buyer’s agent fees you agreed to prior to your home selling.
Flat fee MLS listings in Micco provide you with the MLS benefits of a realtor and the freedom of “For Sale by Owner”. However, your profits will certainly be higher and the process considerably less complicated than they would be with a realtor.
