HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
As a professional realtor, I see a lot of DIY listings or discount brokerages putting properties on MLS where the seller pays the discount broker up front for this service.
Then the seller is left with arranging appointments, marketing and exposing the listing, as well as being provided with a website for bargin hunters to view their property. All negotiations are between the seller and the buyer without mediation, where emotions can come to the surface, subsequently making negotiations tougher!
My question is...if you sold, did you get every dollar your home was worth? If you did not sell, can you make up for the lost time in a thriving real estate market? There is a service for every individual out there, the DIY, FSBO, discount brokers, commission cutters, OR the traditional real estate sales representative which is the only profession where the professional representing you does not get paid unless they get you results...RESULTS = SOLD!
If you want to find out for yourself, call me to discuss the information I have available and then you can make an educated decision as to where you want to put your money! In your pocket or in someone elses?
