Homes For Sale
when a seller is thinking of selling their home, they will
call a realtor for a Free Market
Evaluation. This will include the most recent sales, the
active listings that their home will be competing against
and also the homes that have expired (those that were listed
too high and failed to sell). Once this has been reviewed
the seller will inquire about the realtors fee. In the Kitchener
Waterloo area, the real estate commissions have been either
5% or 6% of the sale price.
the seller is often unaware of the wide range of services
that are being offered from one company to the next. It is
even startling how different two agents can be within the
same office! Well, you ask...how can that be? Don't the agents
who work for the same company offer the same service? No!
Here's why. Each real estate agent is an "independent contractor"
working under the umbrella of their own company. Therefore,
they have already determined how the real estate commission
will be divided between the company and the agent. This variation
may range from 50% to 95%. Therefore, it is often at the agent's
sole discretion, how they are going to market the listing
and what activities they are going to do to sell your home.
This varies a lot!
for example, a single agent who is working on their own compared
to a Real Estate Team of 4 or 5 members. There's lots to do
when a listing is taken, such as: processing the listing,
feature sheets, ads to be written for the newspaper & magazines,
digital photos to be taken, resized and uploaded; web pages
to be designed and uploaded, special flyers to be prepared,
hot line scripts to be written and recorded...and the list
goes on! This takes hours of work "behind the scenes". Did
you ever think what happens when the sole agent is suddenly
called out to show other buyers some properties, list another
home, has a ton of emails to answer or just gets sick? The
odds of getting all the listing work done quickly and efficiently,
becomes questionable! However, when a complete team is put
into action, there's a greater chance the job will get done.
you ever talked to your friends and they said "Yes, the first
two weeks were great and then we never heard from the agent
again! We never received any updates and we never seen any
ads for our home! Don't let this happen to you!
