Hi, this is Brad Millon from Triangle Real Estate Buyers.
It drives me crazy to hear about the huge amount of commission and fees that homeowners end up paying to Realtors around the Triangle when they go to sell their house.
I was reading an article on Zillow.com the other day, about the hidden costs of selling your home, and they estimated … Well, it didn’t have Raleigh or Durham, but it did have Charlotte. And in Charlotte they estimate, or on average, it’s about $15,000 of hidden costs to sell your home, and the large amount of that was Realtor fees or commissions.
Some of it was fixing up your house before selling it, and the rest was closing costs, but like I said, the majority is for the real estate agent fees and commissions.
To me, that over $10,000 that comes out of your pocket seems a little high for what they do.
They’re going to talk to you, photograph your house and then list it on MLS, and then kind of sit back and wait and do some negotiation after for you. But at the end of the day, the higher price, the more money that comes out of your pocket.
And of course, the other thing was the repairs before you sell it or list it. They’ll come up with a bunch of punch list items to go through that they think you should fix up that, of course, doesn’t come out of their pocket.
But I’m not quite sure that’s the best use of your money.
At least when we bought our house, anything they did to fix up the house before we ended up buying it really was wasted because any colors they picked or upgrades they did, we just ended up coming in and going right over it.
If you’re thinking of selling your house in the Raleigh Durham area, call me first.
We promise to give you our best offer that doesn’t have any fees or commissions in it. You won’t have to make any repairs before you sell it and you can move out the date of your choice.
