This was a statement recently made by a Private Marketing Company. I seriously question no commissions paid and getting close to asking in less than a week is to the benefit of the seller. Did it sell too fast and below market value? The reason I question this approach to marketing privately is because of a letter of appreciation I received from a very satisfied customer. She said, “I thought I would try privately first through a Private Marketing Company. It cost me a non-refundable $1500. Whether the house sold or not, my money was gone, not to mention spending time and money advertising, doing open houses and answering phone calls, and being available at all hours without notice.”
"Steve explained that everyone loves to save money, however the people who respond to my for sale by owner ads and sign want to save the same commission dollars, or more, I'm not paying the Realtor; being the reason they want to deal with me in the first place." "He also showed me as a seller acting alone I was restricted to a very small percentage of the available buyers. He had access to 100% of the pool of potential buyers, including MLS and the Century 21 worldwide referral networks, exposing my home to many more possible purchasers. The increased exposure did result in a higher sales price than I could have hoped to achieve on my own."
"Suffice to say, we sold for $25,000 more that we would have hoped to get selling privately. After paying the Real Estate commission, we had $15,000 more for our house in our pockets. Stephen Hall more than paid for his services and I would highly recommend him to anyone." You only get what you pay for.
