...you have proven you are amongst the successful "new breed" of Real Estate consumers. Today the internet is more resourceful than ever and nearly 85% of home buyers and home sellers are conducting their own research online. People are becoming smarter than ever, learning more about the process and keeping up to date on market conditions.
So why is it that the value of a knowledgable Realtor® has never been higher? Is it really true that sellers will actually profit more by paying out top dollar on commissions? How can a Realtor® make a buyer money when when the seller could just minus the commission and sell it themself?
YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
Recently the National Association of Realtors® published an article which proved that on average, a Realtor® makes approximately 12% more than a "For Sale By Owner". Okay...so help with the math. If using a Realtor® makes you on average nationwide 6% MORE than selling it yourself after paying the Realtor® commissions....hmm. Sold.
BUYERS! Did you know that in most cases it costs you NOTHING to have a Realtor® represent you when buying a home? This helps protect your assets and gives you reliable, insured representation during the transaction? Why on earth would someone go to court and not use a free lawyer? Not only that, but someone involved every single day in the world of Real Estate usually has so many resources that only benefit the clients in ways most buyers have no idea of? Proper representation can save a buyer their entire collection of assets should the transaction go awry.
