Myth busted: agents do show FSBO’s

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

there is this myth that if you list your property with a flat fee mls agent, the other agents will not show the property. This is a myth that is untrue. For over ten years, FSBO.com has been sending Flat Fee MLS sellers to agents in every state. Results: showings and sales continue to increase. The sellers reduces the commission paid at closing and still gets the maximum exposure on the local MLS, Realtor.com, Trulia.com and more. The buyers agent still get the normal buyers agent commission. Here are two recent examples:

2991Dalton Ln, Austell, GA and  2054 Summer View Pl, Marietta, GA

Both properties were cleaned up with new paint, new carpet, move in condition and priced right. Both properties were under contract with lot’s of showings in less then a week. Properties needing work or that were priced too high have not had the same results. Here is the best place to learn more: FSBO.COM/flat-fee-mls

Quick Seller Tip: Take down All Personal Items and Photos

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

As much as you want to feel like you are still at home while your home is on the market, many experts would agree that it is not a good idea.  Take down and pack all personal memorabilia and photos, and store them in the garage, basement, or attic. 

Besides eliminating clutter from the home which is more attractive to buyers, it will also take the emotional aspect out of it too.  Walking them by the Family Hall of Fame will only make them feel like they are “taking” your home away from you, or “kicking” you out of the home that belongs to you.  Buyers want this to be their home, not yours, so do yourself a favor and take it all down.

This will also help ease your pain of selling the home you have lived in and loved for so long.  The benefits are on both sides of the fence.
