Seller Services

Selling a home is not as easy as it sounds. I can understand how sellers try to avoid paying that high commission. It is the only reason I know why most homeowners try to sell their home on their own. Unless you have time in your hands, know the process, legal and safety issues it is actually not a bad idea. But the success rate is low because the target market is too limited. Using “Discount Brokerages” is also one option. But we all know the saying “You Get What You Pay For”, believe it or not, also applies in the selling of real estate. Zero commission for cooperating brokers is the main reason why showings are few and therefore, listings within discount brokerages extend up to six months or a full year of your contract and expire.
