/EINPresswire.com/ Virginia Flat Fee MLS home sellers benefit from a zero percent Real Estate commission GoToFSBO package and a regional increase in third quarter homes sales.
The Real Estate Information Network has announced that several regions in Virginia have experienced gains in the sale of existing homes verse the previous quarter. This upward tick in home sales has been attributed in part to favorable ‘affordability’ conditions which include low interest rates and regional job growth.
These factors combined with a zero percent Realtor commission package and additional benefits, have allowed the leading Flat Fee MLS Listings Virginia agency- GoToFSBO to help clients sell their homes in the shortest time possible, while saving thousands in third party Realtor commissions.
The additional benefits include the flexibility to show a home when it’s most convenient for the seller, and the cost savings that occur when homes remain on the market for shorter periods of time. A shorter time on market can offer a reduction in utility and tax bills, thus increasing the potential for even greater financial gains.
As such the GoToFSBO Virginia Flat Fee MLS approach has increased in popularity during current market conditions, because it’s been shown it can represent the difference between taking a loss, or the ability to get a higher return on what is often a person’s largest financial investment.
According to GoToFSBO owner Debbie Kent- ‘We offer a contract-to-closing service called the Assistance Option Program. Instead of our client paying 3% to a listing agent they pay us a low flat fee. Instead of this same client paying another 3% to the buyer’s agent, they simply pay us $475 to handle the closing paperwork.’
‘This approach leads to the savings of thousands in Real Estate commissions which benefits both parties, and often results in a much quicker turn around time.’
Additionally, GoToFSBO homes are placed in the MLS where they are visible to prospective buyers in the same manner used by ‘traditional’ Realtors, while offering the following client focused For Sale By Owner Flat Fee packages.
Packages that include fully Licensed GoToFSBO Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Real Estate Attorneys, the Title Company, Appraisers and Home Inspection services:
– For Sale By Owner using an all inclusive GoToFSBO package that contains an MLS listing, inclusion in an full color FSBO homes for sale magazine, website advertising, signage, brochures, phone support, purchase offer preparation, paperwork review and personal assistance from start to closing. A package that can result in paying No Real Estate commission.
– For Sale By Owner using a Flat Fee MLS Virginia GoToFSBO listing where an outside Real Estate agent delivers the buyer, resulting in paying only a 2.5 to 3 percent commission.
In a comparison of homes that sold for $250,000 using a GoToFSBO flat rate package, Virginia sellers saved an extra $7500-$15,000 in Real Estate commission above what was achieved using ‘traditional’ methods.
While a comparison of Virginia homes that sold for $350,000 revealed that FSBO users were able to pocket on average an extra $10,500-$21,000 more than sellers that didn’t take advantage of GoToFSBO services.
