That’s a very important question. We understand that most buyers and sellers want to save money where they can, but it can come at a price.
When you have a traditional agent working for you, they are helping you with every detail from start to finish. That means anything you need to buy or sell your home—strategic marketing, high quality photos, smart listings, price negotiations, legal paperwork, scheduling inspections and closing, and other important components in this complex process. In return, the agent gets their typical percentage as commission.
Going with a low-commission or discount brokerage can be somewhat of a “you get what you pay for scenario”. They offer to list your home on the MLS (something only a licensed agent can do) but most often not much more. Depending on the business, there can be few to no additional services offered, leaving a seller somewhat high and dry, having to navigate the process alone. Some people choose to go this route, but they often end up paying for it one way or the other in the end.
It a tough and very real decision sellers face–do you pay more, or do you go with getting less help?At List Wizer, we can help make that decision a lot easier. We want to help you get all the services you need and a much lower rate than you would typically be charged. Here’s how we work it out:
As the chart shows, if you sold a house for $300,000, you would end up paying $18,000 to a traditional real estate agent. With the way we structure our business, you would pay only $12,000 in fees, saving you $6,000! That’s a savings you wouldn’t want to ignore.
