Online PR News – 06-July-2010 – – Comparison reveals the average savings in fees and commissions for sellers using GoToFSBO, the leading homes For Sale By Owner agency in Northern Virginia VA, exceeds the generous tax credits that were offered under the First Time Home Buyer federal stimulus package. This analysis was based on an average home selling price of 250,000 and higher, and took into consideration all scenarios involving the For Sale By Owner home sale process. A process that includes fully Licensed GoToFSBO Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Real Estate Attorneys, the Title Company, Appraisers and Inspection services.
This comparison took into account the following standard For Sale By Owner scenarios:
- For Sale By Owner using a Flat Fee GoToFSBO MLS listing where a Real Estate agent delivers the buyer resulting in a 2.5 to 3 percent commission.
- For Sale By Owner direct to buyer sales using a basic GoToFSBO package and not involving another Real Estate agent thereby resulting in no commission.
- For Sale By Owner using an all inclusive GoToFSBO package that contains an MLS listing, FSBO magazine & website advertising, signage, brochures, phone support, purchase offer preparation/review and personal assistance from start to closing.
In the above scenarios sellers using GoToFSBO that sold a home for 250,000 were able to pocket an extra $7500-$16,000 above and beyond sellers that sold a home for the same amount using a 'traditional' Real Estate sales process. Representing an average financial gain that exceeded the First Time Home Buyers and repeat sellers federal tax incentive program that was in effect through April 31, 2010. According to Debbie Kent, owner of GoToFSBO and a fully licensed Real Estate agent-
"93% of our for sale by owner homes sell within three to four months even in this market. The key is proper exposure, marketing and accurate pricing. At GoToFSBO we provide all the services you would get with a traditional company. However, rather than paying 3% to the listing agent and 3% to the selling agent - you pay our listing agents a flat fee."
