Virginia home sellers benefit from a zero percent Real Estate commission For Sale By Owner GoToFSBO package and an increase in homes sales verse same period last year.
Online PR News – 25-August-2011 – – The National Association of Realtors® has established that Virginia, Maryland and DC have seen significant gains in the sale of existing homes verse the same period last year. This has been attributed in part to 'affordability' conditions being the most favorable since 1970. These factors, in combination with a flat fee GoToFSBO zero percent Real Estate commission package, have allowed the leading For Sale By Owner Virginia agency to help clients successfully sell their homes, and avoid the need to pay thousands in Realtor commissions.
Flat rate packages that start at $275.00 and are structured so that sellers pay no Real Estate commission when selling direct to buyer without involving another agent. Packages that include 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.
According to GoToFSBO owner Debbie Kent- We offer a contract-to-closing service called the 'Assistance Option Program'. "Instead of our client paying 3% to a listing agent they pay us a low flat fee. Instead of this same client paying another 3% to the buyer's agent, they simply pay us $475 to handle the closing paperwork. This approach leads to the savings of thousands in Real Estate commissions which benefits both parties, and often results in a much quicker turn around time."
As such, the For Sale By Owner Virginia Homes approach has increased in popularity during the current market conditions because it's been shown it can represent the difference between taking a loss and getting a fair return on one's home ownership investment.
Additionally, GoToFSBO homes are listed in the MLS where they are visible to prospective buyers in the same manner used by 'traditional' Realtors, while offering the following client focused For Sale By Owner Flat Fee packages:
- 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.
- For Sale By Owner using a Flat Fee GoToFSBO MLS listing where an outside Real Estate agent delivers the buyer resulting in paying only a 2.5 to 3 percent commission.
In a comparison of homes that sold for $250,000 using a GoToFSBO flat rate package sellers saved an extra $7500-$15,000 in Real Estate commissions above what was achieved using 'traditional' methods.
Virginia homes that sold for $350,000 demonstrated that FSBO users were able to pocket on average an extra $10,500-$21,000 more than sellers that didn’t take advantage of the GoToFSBO For Sale By Owner process.
