Warning – the following story may be offensive to some people.
A friend of mine (who is a real estate agent) recently purchased a regional acreage lifestyle property.
Upon inspection the selling agent firmly impressed on my friend that “all offers will be considered”, giving the distinct impression that it was less about the seller being desperate to leave and more about the agent being desperate to get the property off his books.
The great news is that my friend now has a property that was an absolute bargain! But the bad news is the seller missed out on an additional $60,000 for the sake of saving a few thousand dollars on commission.
Today’s real estate agents are constantly confronted with requests to ‘discount their commission’ but sellers need to ask themselves, what is the cost to them? Do you really want to be represented by someone who is willing to ‘downgrade’ their professionalism and expertise?
Every tool utilised by good real estate agents comes at a cost and the majority of these are provided free of charge for their sellers. The commission is their reward for the planning, preparation, knowledge and time they commit to the properties they represent.
Our Professionals Everton Park real estate agents are experts at getting great results and are able to prescribe individual methods to suit each property and the owners – give them a call and have a chat about how they can help you too…
