Why Use A Realtor? I Can Sell It Myself & Save a Commission!
Sure You Can Sell It Yourself BUT did you know: <ul><li>It’s more than just putting a sign in your yard </li></ul><ul><li>Calls all hours of the day & night </li></ul><ul><li>Making sure you have time to SHOW the house to perspective buyers </li></ul><ul><li>It’s the law that ANYONE (except those that never lived in the dwelling ) selling a home MUST disclose ALL information about the home (even FOR SALE BY OWNERS )! </li></ul><ul><li>Making sure someone is Qualified to buy your home without wasting your time. </li></ul><ul><li>Willing to work with Real Estate Agents who have buyers agencies with clients that are interested in your home. </li></ul><ul><li>Spending money marketing your home. </li></ul>
What IS a REALTOR? <ul><li>Great question! </li></ul><ul><li>A Realtor is someone that works for themselves under a Brokers license. </li></ul><ul><li>MOST Realtors ONLY work under a Commission! We DO NOT get paid by the hour nor do we get paid if your house DOES NOT SELL! </li></ul><ul><li>Realtors Do NOT get the FULL commission! </li></ul><ul><li>Realtors have to Pay for all their own Marketing, Office Space, Taxes, Gifts, and Gas. </li></ul><ul><li>Realtors have to LOVE THEIR JOBS and be great at TIME MANAGEMENT! </li></ul>
WHAT IS COMMISSION Most people think Agents makes the entire Commission percentage WRONG! Let Me Show You How It Works
A Home Sells for: $170,000 at a 6% Commission Commission Paid is: $10,200 Listing Agent 3% Buyers Agent 3% $5,100 $5,100 Agent Broker $2,550 $2,550 Every Broker is Different so I will just leave this side alone This one of the typical types of commission splits
The Agent Receives A Check for $2,550 The Agent Has To Pay Out Of Their Commission Check: <ul><li>TAXES - so automatically take out about 30% </li></ul><ul><li>GAS - to travel back and forth showing the property and meeting with the sellers </li></ul><ul><li>MARKETING - paying to make flyers, mailing postcards, websites, newspapers, gifts to clients, ect…. </li></ul><ul><li>TIME - how much is my time worth? What if a property sells really fast (GREAT I make a Profit BUT what if it takes 3 months or longer? If after I take all the above off my check what I am left with might be less than the minimum wage !) </li></ul>Do You STILL Think This Job Is Easy? WOW ! But Wait There is More :
Let Me Show You How I Work Preparation : <ul><li>Before I go visit a potential seller I make sure I know everything about the home. </li></ul><ul><li>How much it was bought and sold for over the years </li></ul><ul><li>I check the deed to see who actually owns it </li></ul><ul><li>I pull comps. of other homes in the area with similar features to see what they sold for or didn’t sell for. </li></ul><ul><li>I prepare my presentation to you the client in hopes of earning your business. </li></ul>
The Job Does Not Stop at Getting the Listing <ul><li>Some think that sticking the sign in the ground and waiting </li></ul><ul><li>for a sale is all we do. Not me I work from the time I </li></ul><ul><li>get up till the time I go to bed. </li></ul><ul><li>Making sure all the marketing is up to date with always checking the web sites, keeping up with flyers and updating photos. </li></ul><ul><li>Checking email for any leads and calling to see if I can set up a showing. </li></ul><ul><li>Receiving calls at all hours of the day from prospective buyers and answering all questions. </li></ul>
