Sellers Are Tired of Paying High Real Estate Commissions! You Now Have Options!

For the past few years, there has been an enormous migration of consumers looking to alternative methods of selling their homes rather than using traditional real estate brokers. According to the 2006 Consumer Federation of America Report that analyzed the growth and challenges of non-traditional real estate brokers, the growth of the "discount broker" in Seattle, WA has seen nearly a 450% increase in customers since 1995.
The rise of non-traditional or discount real estate brokers such as Redfin, Zip Realty, Help-U-Sell, etc. has provided consumers with an alternative to the fee structure of traditional real estate brokers. Many consumers have become disgruntled by a perceived lack of willingness of some traditional agents to reduce commissions to facilitate transactions in this challenging market environment. Furthermore, many consumers no longer see the correlation between the higher fees of traditional brokers with the quantifiable and tangible results of successful and mutually beneficial real estate transactions.
Many consumers have sought to go the way of "For-Sale-By-Owner" (FSBO) to do it on their own because they feel they can either sell their home better than a traditional agent or save significant dollars along the way. According to the 2009 National Association of Realtors (of which I am a member) report, 69% of the consumers that chose to sell their home For Sale By Owner (FSBO) did so to avoid paying high Realtor fees.
As of the 2009 NAR report, For Sale By Owner (FSBO) transactions accounted for 11% of the total sales transactions completed in the year. 75% of those polled in the report stated that the largest difficulties they faced were due to lack of in-depth market knowledge that led to mis-pricing their property, difficulty in understanding the paperwork, contract negotiations and property presentation. The results of this move to discount or do-it-yourself strategies have left many consumers with mixed to poor results at best and most looking for more answers. Some figures have the number of consumers giving up and turning back to traditional agent representation as high as 70-80%. This after months of additional carry costs (mortgage payments, etc.), longer market times and lower overall showing activity.
The most startling difference comes from the difference between the sales prices of those represented by a traditional agent versus For Sale By Owner (FSBO). According to the 2009 NAR report, homes represented by a traditional agent sold for $215,000 versus homes sold For Sale By Owner (FSBO) at $172,000, a 25% difference. Even when you take into account that many FSBO transactions are done between family and friends, the differential is still tremendous. This number is up from a 16% differential in the 2005 NAR report.
Consumers are speaking with their actions and moving towards discount and FSBO alternatives, but the results reflect that this is oftentimes not the best option for most people trying to sell their home. We feel strongly that we must produce a quality alternative that provides our clients with the best chance to succeed at selling their home in this market while simultaneously balancing a clients desire to save resources.
At the James Real Estate Group, we are keenly aware of the importance that consumers have placed on being in control of how much they pay for real estate services, especially in light of this challenging market environment.  Thus, we have created our Sellers Advantage Program. We have developed a program to provide our clients with "traditional agent service and representation but with the ability to choose a non-traditional price."
The Sellers Advantage Program is structured to provide our clients with four distinct service platforms, each containing a basket of services designed to provide the client with price discretion while at the same time enhancing the marketability of the property. This program enables you to choose a service platform that satisfies both your financial and real estate goals. You can choose from our Base Package (1.5%) all the way up to our Platinum Package (3%), or somewhere in between. One thing is for certain, the plan you choose will be right for you.
No equity or financially distressed? No problem. My team is extremely experienced and qualified in working with Short Sales and Banking institutions to work out financial solutions that work for all parties.

  46. One other thing is that an online business administration study course is designed for individuals to be able to smoothly proceed to bachelor's degree programs. The Ninety credit education meets the lower bachelor college degree requirements when you earn your associate of arts in BA online, you'll have access to the latest technologies in such a field. Some reasons why students want to be able to get their associate degree in business is because they can be interested in this area and want to get the general education and learning necessary just before jumping in a bachelor diploma program. Thanks for the tips you really provide within your blog.
  47. I haven?t checked in here for a while because I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are good quality so I guess I?ll add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it my friend :) <a href="" rel="nofollow ugc">ラ ブ ド ー ル</a>
  48. I was suggested this website by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my difficulty. You're amazing! Thanks!
  49. I've noticed that credit improvement activity needs to be conducted with techniques. If not, it's possible you'll find yourself destroying your standing. In order to reach your goals in fixing your credit rating you have to make sure that from this moment in time you pay your complete monthly fees promptly in advance of their appointed date. It is really significant for the reason that by not necessarily accomplishing this, all other moves that you will decide to try to improve your credit standing will not be successful.

  54. Interesting article. It's very unfortunate that over the last one decade, the travel industry has already been able to to take on terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, as well as the first ever real global recession. Through all this the industry has really proven to be powerful, resilient along with dynamic, finding new methods to deal with difficulty. There are always fresh difficulties and the possiblility to which the market must all over again adapt and behave.
  55. Yet another thing I would like to convey is that in place of trying to match all your online degree courses on days that you complete work (since the majority people are fatigued when they return), try to obtain most of your sessions on the weekends and only one or two courses on weekdays, even if it means taking some time away from your saturday and sunday. This pays off because on the saturdays and sundays, you will be a lot more rested in addition to concentrated in school work. Thanks for the different tips I have acquired from your blog.

  56. It is my belief that mesothelioma can be the most dangerous cancer. It has unusual traits. The more I really look at it a lot more I am confident it does not respond like a real solid tissue cancer. In case mesothelioma can be a rogue viral infection, hence there is the chance for developing a vaccine and also offering vaccination for asbestos subjected people who are really at high risk associated with developing long run asbestos related malignancies. Thanks for expressing your ideas on this important ailment.

  58. I have discovered some new items from your web site about personal computers. Another thing I've always assumed is that laptop computers have become a product that each family must have for most reasons. They provide convenient ways in which to organize households, pay bills, search for information, study, tune in to music and also watch shows. An innovative method to complete these types of tasks is by using a mobile computer. These pcs are portable ones, small, robust and transportable.
