5 Tips for Selling Your Home with a Flat-Fee Real Estate Service
Selling a home can be a daunting task, and with the current state of the housing market, it can be even more challenging. From finding a new home to making repairs and updating your address, there are a lot of steps involved. One of the most important decisions you'll have to make is how to actually sell your home.
Traditionally, the job has fallen to real estate agents, who typically charge a 6% commission on the sale for their services. While these sizable fees have never been very popular among those looking to sell, until recently, it was the only real option. However, in the last ten years, another option has become increasingly popular - listing for a flat fee.
In this article, we will explore flat fee listings and the many advantages of using this type of service to sell your home in a far more affordable manner. We'll also take a look at how Unreal Estate can help you sell your home with a flat-fee listing and make the process as stress-free as possible.
A flat-fee listing is a type of real estate service that allows homeowners to list their homes on the MLS marketplace without paying a commission based on the sales price. Instead, homeowners agree upfront on a set fee for the services of the agent.
In a traditional real estate listing, the seller pays the listing agent and the buyer's agent a commission, usually around 6% of the sales price. With a flat-fee listing, the cost stays the same no matter what the sale price of your home is.
Along with a flat-fee MLS listing, some agents may also provide other valuable services like open houses, professional photography, managed showings, and more. This can help make your home stand out on the market and attract more potential buyers.
There are several advantages to choosing a flat-fee listing when selling your home.
A flat-fee listing can help simplify the process of selling your home. Giving you greater control over the process of selling, showings, open houses and pricing. Most repeat sellers will agree, the work to sell their property were tasks they did without their agent and to do it again, they know they could save on commissions and just control the sale themselves with a flat fee agent available just when they need them.
A flat-fee listing can help you keep more of the profits from the sale of your home. As mentioned before, the traditional 6% agents commission can add up to a significant amount of money, especially for higher-priced homes. You can save more from the sale of your home with a flat-fee listing.
With a flat-fee listing, you’ll know the cost upfront. You'll know exactly what you'll owe your listing agent from the start, making it easier to budget for the sale of your home.
