)-- "This house will never sell." "It will take at least 6-months to sell a house in this market." "Home owners will have to lower the selling price in order to sell their house fast." Are these some of the thoughts or conventional wisdom that home owners are being bombarded with in a recent attempt to sell a home? Or perhaps a home owner is considering a big move, but are very uneasy to jump at the next home because of the screaming headlines of negativity in the media regarding the looming real estate "bubble". Isn't it expected that a home owner would always make money from the sale of one of life's biggest and most important purchases? Well, this article will be both educational and biographical as home owners will see how REI Most Wanted LLC recently sold an investment property in 5 weeks once it was put on the market and made an extra $19,000. And although this company does not guarantee a sale or even profit on all homes, they have experienced and believe that with the secret hints and creative suggestions found within this press release, any homeowner should be able to sell a home twice as fast as the market average and typically for more money.
The Basics of the Sell
So let's first look at how the traditional methods for selling houses are approached. Most people in recent decades, and currently still, have used Realtors to assist them in the sale of personal residences. The majority of Realtors are trained to do 2 primary tasks: list and sell. Now there's a lot of activity and specialties that can go into these main jobs, but the end goal is always the same: to get out there and get listings and sell, sell, sell. Although most Realtors provide good service to their clients and customers, and provide some level of marketing for their clients properties; because of the way agents are paid from a gross commission structure, agents are less motivated to sell an individual’s home, than moving inventories through transactions. In fact, the homes with the most activity can easily funnel all energies away from their client’s home if it has sat on the market too long (which in many areas is currently getting longer and longer).
The other basic method of selling a home on the open market is For Sale By owner, or FSBO. This is generally for those fearless do-it-yourselfers or folks who are trying to save (or worse, can't afford) a typical 6% real estate agents' commission. Depending on how someone goes about their FSBO, there is still a lot of work and education required to pull this off smoothly. There are some organized groups that assist homeowners with FSBO strategies, but still usually charge a fee that is either staggered based on the home price, or a flat price. The downside to these are that it is definitely a lot more work to get a home prepared for showing, take the calls, make the appointments, handle extra paperwork, pay for the advertising costs and most importantly, not have access the MLS. And yes, there are a few places someone can purchase MLS services a la carte, but in the long run - unless the homeowner has a strong back bone and don't mind paying for a lot of things themselves, that a real estate agent may typically take care of, then FSBO may not be the quickest way to get a house sold on the market (at least not by itself). And yes, a homeowner can save 3-6% commission on the sale of a house, but the homeowner may pay that difference shouldering the other burdens of the process of selling a home and with possibly even slower results.
