The real estate industry in modern society strives to meet the demands of knowledgeable consumers who expect better services than in the past. Many homeowners want to be able to excise more control over their real estate holdings by taking charge of the selling process. The industry is evolving to meet the needs of sellers whose expectations break traditional barriers. Sellers now have multiple options for deciding how to market and sell their own homes. This relatively new trend is rapidly changing the way sellers view the real estate services market.
Direct by Owner offers works with sellers to achieve the same common objective of selling their homes as quickly and inexpensively as possible. Many homeowners prefer to pick and choose services offered by brokers. Flat fee real estate services allow the seller to enter into an "a la carte" service agreement with a broker who agrees to accept a flat fee instead of a commission based on the sales price. The flat fee MLS service provides sellers with the option of choosing exactly which professional services they wish to use.
Flat fee real estate services eliminate many problems associated with the traditional practice of having to pay a percentage of the sales price to the broker, which is usually six percent. The flat fee alternative results in substantial savings for the seller at closing. Direct by Owner allows sellers to take advantage of the expertise of professional realtors without requiring them to use certain services. Sellers in this area who use this non-traditional option will experience access to more potential buyers, which increases their chances of a quicker and less costly sale.
