The Results Are Clear
We are still running this poll to get to 5,000 submissions to make sure the results are conclusive but so far we have over 3200 submissions from home owners across the country.
So far, it’s pretty clear, most people (like you) are tired of having to pay high 6% or even 7% real estate commissions in order to sell their house.
See the results below as of September 27, 2022…
The Real Estate Market Is On Fire
Did you know, buyer demand for homes is at an all time high and real estate prices continue to rise at a rapid pace?
But real estate agents are making more and more money as housing demand increases and prices continue to climb.
After all, their commission is based on a percentage of the final selling price of your home.
With houses going under deposit just hours after being listed for sale (often for over asking price), agents jobs have never been easier.
So, how is it fair that you have to pay a real estate agent a higher commission for less work?
On top of that, the internet has already disrupted the real estate industry for a better experience.
Agents now have a complete set of tools available to them to decrease the amount of work and time needed to sell your house.
They have the MLS, home search websites such as Zillow and Realtor.com, automated showing scheduling services, automated marketing, electronic signature software, the list goes on and on.
You must be wondering why have real estate agents commissions continued to increase instead of decrease?
It doesn’t make sense that you have to pay more.
You have probably heard how real estate agents justify these high commissions by comparing themselves to attorneys, accountants or even doctors.
And in a lot of markets, real estate agents can make more money then some of the most skillful doctors!
But the truth is, there is no way a real estate agent should be comparing themselves to these professions.
This trend and stronghold that real estate agents have on what you pay to sell your house is troubling.
They also continue to dig their heals in and make every attempt to hinder alternatives such as selling “For Sale By Owner” or with “Discount Real Estate Brokers”.
In fact, many real estate broker offices have had to close their doors after advertising that they are a “Discount Broker”.
The reason this is happening is because real estate agents have launched national marketing campaigns that are nothing short of “smear campaigns”.
These campaigns are full of scare tactics to convince unsuspecting home owners into selling their house with a traditional agent and their high commissions.
Unfortunately these fear mongering tactics seem to be working.
At least for now…
The good news is, there are alternative options that are available to you and they are working well for home sellers.
The team at ISoldMyHouse.com is doing an amazing job at fighting for home owners having the right to sell for fair commissions.
They have been promoting alternative home selling options (that work) to save on commissions, since 1997.
Currently, they are reporting, the best way to sell your house is still by using a real estate agents services.
But you don’t have to pay high 6% or 7% commissions.
You can find real estate agents that will offer commissions that are fair and still get a “high quality” and “professional level of service”.
How Can You Find These Agents?
Remember that the entire real estate agent community seems to be united in only offering a standard 6-7% commission.
They don’t want to advertise that they will offer a lower commission for the same level of service.
If they did, they would face a couple problems.
- They would face criticism and even black balling from other real estate agents.
- They would have to reduce the amount of money they make from home owners unaware of these lower commissions.
So how can you get them to offer lower commissions?
You have 2 options.
- You can negotiate yourself (hard)
- You can use ISoldMyHouse.com, the already negotiated discounts for you
