Flat-Fee Home Listing Services In Fargo, ND – BaumBach Real Estate
Learn How to Sell Your Home Without Paying a High Commission Fee
With advancements in technology, and the ability for people to search for homes online through websites such as Zillow, Trulia, and thousands of other local brokerage sites — it is not always necessary to list your home with a traditional brokerage to help you find a buyer for your home. As long as your home is listed on the MLS, Buyers can now easily find you.
When people sell their homes they can sometimes end up paying anywhere up to 6% or more of the final sale amount to the real estate agents and brokers that assisted with the transaction.
The brokerage that submits, or lists, the home onto the MLS usually takes half of this commission, and the brokerage that finds the buyer of the home takes the other half.
These commission fees are avoidable when you choose to sell your home yourself — but there are risks to not having any support from a broker at all.
For Sale By Owner
The term For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) is used to describe the process of a homeowner choosing to sell their home by themselves without any assistance from a real estate agent or broker.
It is possible to sell your home this way, but your home will not be listed on the MLS. Only real estate brokers are able to submit and list your home on the MLS.
What is the MLS?
A Multiple Listing Service, commonly referred to as an MLS, is a database of homes within a certain geographic area. When your home is listed on the MLS of your region, it is synced to Zillow and other similar listing websites so that your home can be found online from people all across the country.
By not listing your home on the MLS, you risk missing out on many great opportunities for getting your property in front of the right buyers online. The more visibility your home gets, the more potential buyers — and ultimately, the higher the sales price.
