01/20/2012

Virginia GoToFSBO For Sale By Owner home sellers benefit from a zero percent Flat Fee Real Estate commission package and record low interest rates.

Online PR News – 20-January-2012 – – The National Association Of Realtors (NAR) recently reported that the number of Americans signing contracts to purchase previously owned homes reached its highest level in nineteen months. This increase in existing home sales, which included Virginia, has been attributed to several ’affordability’ factors such as historically low interest rates and an anticipated increase in home values going forward.

These factors combined with a zero percent Flat Fee Real Estate commission GoToFSBO package, have allowed the leading For Sale By Owner Virginia agency to help clients successfully sell their homes in the shortest time possible, while avoiding the need to pay thousands in third party Realtor commissions.

Flat Fee MLS Listing packages that start at $275.00, and are structured so that clients 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 and highest attention to detail.

According to GoToFSBO owner Debbie Kent-

We offer a complete contract-to-closing service called the 'Assistance Option Package'. 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.

“Our Assistance Option Package is structured to save thousands in Real Estate commissions, which ultimately benefits both parties, and provides an incentive for quicker turn around times."

As such, the For Sale By Owner Flat Fee approach has increased in popularity 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, all GoToFSBO homes are listed in the MLS where they are visible to 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, which results 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, Virginia sellers saved an extra $7500-$15,000 in Real Estate commissions above what was achieved using 'traditional' methods.

While a study of Virginia homes that sold for $350,000 revealed that GoToFSBO users, on average, were able to pocket an extra $10,500-$21,000 more than sellers that didn’t take advantage of the For Sale By Owner process.
