Through the years, realtor commissions have skyrocketed, which makes it more expensive to sell your home. In Minneapolis, realtor fees can reach up to 7%, and the average in the U.S. is 6%. While this may not seem like much in the long run, it is more than you should be spending. For example, if you sell your home for $300,000 at a 7% realtor fee, you have to pay your realtor $21,000 when it’s all said and done. If you choose to hire a discount realtor instead of going the traditional route, you can save thousands of dollars. Here, our experts at Home Avenue will highlight the discount realtor route and how it can help you save thousands.
No matter what route you go when you are selling your home, you will have to pay a decent chunk in commission to the company or group that helps you sell your home. Because you save more money when you choose to use a flat-fee realty company, it is often perceived as cheap, and some people dismiss this option because of that perceived notion. However, you get the same service and dedication when you choose a flat-fee realty group over a traditional one. Though you save money when you choose flat-fee realty, it still is not cheap, but it does save you money in the long run, which makes it the smarter choice.
When you choose a discount realty service to help you sell your home, you can avoid many service fees associated with realty companies. When you go the traditional route, you typically have to pay for full-service fees, which add on to the commission you have to pay your agent. However, when you choose a discount realty company, you still have to pay some of those fees, but you can avoid many of them.
We still give you full realtor services, but we do so at a discounted price. For instance, when you choose to list your home as ‘For Sale By Owner’ (FSBO), we do the groundwork by accurately listing your home on various postings. Additionally, we walk you through the process and update you on all the happenings involving your property.
