With powerful sites such as Zillow and Trulia available in the palm
of your hand, real estate information readily available on demand, and
smartphone photography coupled with social media marketing, you may
question the benefits of using a real estate agent to sell your home.
For starters, let’s take a look at some numbers:
– Having a real estate agent has been proven to net 25% more for your home
– 89% of For Sale By Owner’s fail, eventually listing with an Agent
Real estate agents sell homes every single day, which means they
foresee issues and know the best sales and marketing strategies. Real
estate agents can also help keep a seller’s emotions in check, which is
But what about the cost? 6% can be a steep price to pay!
It’s true. With a median sale price in New York of $549,000, the
typical seller would be looking at paying almost $33,000 in commissions.
Online brokerage NestQuest Direct
thinks this is too much. They think you should be able to sell your
home using a knowledgeable real estate agent who can get the most for
your home, without having to pay so much. So they launched an innovative
flat rate model that uses local agents who are paid a salary instead of
commission. You simply choose one of their four flat rate packages and they go to work, saving sellers an average of $15,000!
Chances are your home is your largest asset and therefore you have
built up substantial equity. So selling your home can be your most
important financial decision. When you are ready to sell, you have to
ensure you keep as much of that equity as possible.
With that in mind, many people think that selling their home
themselves will save them money. However, real estate agents are proven
to get up to 25% more for your home. For example, the founder of popular
real estate website, ForSaleByOwner.com tried to sell his New York
Apartment himself. But after 6 months with no luck, he enlisted a real
estate agent who raised the price of the home by $150,000 and sold it
within a few months.
With NestQuest’s flat rate model, sellers get the best of both worlds: savings and a real estate agent.
But if you are still not convinced, NestQuest Direct offers a basic package
for owners to personally list their home. If you can find the time, put
forth the effort, and utilize available resources efficiently to market
and sell your home for top dollar, Go For It.
But considering that 89% of FSBOs end up listing with a real estate
agent, the majority of people who have the time and made the effort,
simply may not have the knowledge. Poor pricing and marketing strategies
are the main reasons for FSBO failure. Local agents have the knowledge
and their brokers have spent years advertising, marketing and selling,
so they know what works and what does not.
Why are NestQuest Direct Agents different from all other Real Estate Agents?
In addition to their 0% commission flat rate packages which save
sellers thousands of dollars, they employ technology and creative teams
who specialize in marketing your home. This allows your sales agent to
spend 100% of his or her time selling. And NestQuest’s agents are not
paid a commission either. Rather, they are paid a salary and bonus based
on your satisfaction. So they will never rush a negotiation to get a
deal done. They are paid regardless, ensuring they get top dollar for
NestQuest Direct has options for any seller out there, whether that
be a FSBO, or a complete hands off seller who wants their home sold fast
and for the most money. Contact NestQuest Direct
today with any questions. They will send a local Agent to your home and
tell you what your house is worth, and how much they can save you.
