Independent comparison reveals that selling a home For Sale By Owner during Holiday season offers unique advantages including the opportunity to sell for a higher asking price.
Online PR News – 15-December-2011 – – Independent analysis reveals that selling a Home For Sale By Owner in Virginia using Flat Fee MLS services offers unique benefits during the holiday season. Unique advantages including the ability to ask for a higher price due to less new inventory and a greater percentage of serious buyers.
These advantages, in combination with the opportunity to save thousands in third party Realtor commissions due to Flat Fee packages, increase the flexibility to negotiate a mutually beneficial sales price.
