Online PR News – 09-June-2011 – – Comparison reveals home sellers that used the leading Virginia Home For Sale By Owner agency-GoToFSBO, experienced faster turn around times and saved thousands in Real Estate commissions above home sellers that relied on traditional services.
Quicker turn around times due to greater flexibility to negotiate a mutually beneficial sales price. Increased financial gains resulting from Flat Fee Real Estate commission packages designed to help clients keep more of the profits from the sale of their home. Client focused packages that involve fully Licensed GoToFSBO Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Real Estate Attorneys, the Title Company, Appraisers and Home Inspection services. Thus combining all the professional services needed to assist in the home selling process for the lowest possible fee.
GoToFSBO's For Sale By Owner packages offer home sellers the advantage of paying No Real Estate commission when selling directly to a buyer without involving another agent. Financial advantages that have resulted in a high GoToFSBO client satisfaction rating through the successful sale of hundreds of homes, including homes that had gained little or no interest before enlisting the help GoToFSBO.
The comparison showed that homes that sold for $250,000 using a GoToFSBO For Sale By Owner package provided home sellers save an extra $7500-$15,000 above what was achieved by sellers using less flexible 'traditional' real estate methods. While Virginia homes that sold for $350,000 revealed that GoToFSBO users were able to pocket on average an extra $10,500 - $21,000 in Real Estate commission savings over sellers that didn’t take advantage of the Home For Sale By Owner process. Homes that sold for more than $350,000 realized even greater commission savings.
According to Debbie Kent, president of GoToFSBO-
"Paying a lower commission, or no commission at all, offers the homeowner the advantage of being competitively priced when compared to other homes in their neighborhood but with the added advantage of keeping more of the financial gains from the sale of their home than owners required to pay a higher commission."
Ms. Kent also notes GoToFSBO homes are listed in the MLS where they are visible to potential buyers in the same manner used by 'traditional' Realtors while providing the following Home For Sale By Owner services:
- For Sale By Owner using a GoToFSBO For Sale By Owner Flat Fee MLS listing where an outside Real Estate agent delivers the buyer resulting in paying only a 2.5 to 3 percent commission.
- For Sale By Owner using an all inclusive GoToFSBO package that contains an MLS listing, inclusion in an full color FSBO homes for sale magazine, website advertising, signage, brochures, phone support, purchase offer preparation, paperwork review and personal assistance from start to closing. A package that can result in paying No Real Estate commission.
Other benefits include the flexibility to show a home on the dates and times most convenient for the seller, as opposed to an agent, and the ability to negotiate a mutually beneficial price absent the constraints of paying between 3% to 6.5% in commissions. A shorter time on market also provided additional cost savings due to reductions in utility, tax bills and other often over looked expenses.
