– Sell It yourself.
You can put your home up with a local real estate board that operates an MLS® system and have your home exposed with all the other listings, and deal directly with the public and the real estate agents who may show your property. Worth noting is that since your property is on the local MLS® system, you will have a reasonable chance of dealing with buyer’s agent. These buyers agents expect to be paid. Most likely, they will be looking to the Seller to pay them something, probably at least half of the traditional fees paid by sellers. In BC, traditional agents often expect to receive approximately 3.255% on the 1st $100,000 plus 1.1625% on the balance of the sale price above $100,000. So as an example of a $900,000 sale price property, half the traditional listing commission equals ($100,000 X 3.255% = $3255) + ( $800,000 X 1.1625% = $9300) = $12555. There is an additional $500 or so for the FSBO (for sale by owner) company’s upfront listing fee, thus totalling $13055.Option #2
– Sell your property with a traditional real estate agent.
Depending upon what your home is worth, this will cost a fair amount of money. A $900,000 home can typically cost $27,000 (assuming a 7% commission on the first $100,000 and 2.5% on the balance) in British Columbia through a company like this, although commission do vary in the marketplace. Option #3
– Save Money & Sell your home through One Percent Realty.
We will charge you $9950 for this same $900,000 home, with all the services and exposures that you would receive from the traditional higher commission companies. This fee also includes payment to the buyer’s agent (usually $4500). We do open houses, handles the showings, negotiations, and paperwork that you would expect from any full service real estate company. In short, the services and exposure are the same as you would get from Option #2 above, but for way less money.
So, as illustrated above, for only $9950*, you can have the full service of a One Percent Realty professional Realtor®.
