Learn how to sell your own home!
We offer a FSBO class that runs Monday through Friday
of every week, 1-3pm, at a cost of only $50 per person.
If you're interested in learning how to sell your own home, we now offer a FSBO class that will enable you to do just that. The same FSBO class runs every Monday through Friday of every week, 1-3pm, at a cost of only $50 per person. Registration is not required. You need only to show up by the start time of 1pm. But if you have any questions prior to taking the class, please call us at 586.443.0125. E-mail inquires are also acceptable.
Now, though we will discuss much in the FSBO class, we will primarily focus on two areas of the home selling process:
1. How to competitively price your home in a highly competitive housing market
2. How to market your home without using a multiple listing service (MLS)
If you don't get the above two right, you will never find a buyer for your home. It's really that important!
With that said, many of you would argue that you could easily obtain a FSBO package at your local real estate title agency, and at no cost to you. And while this is correct, you would not, however, get the step-by-step instruction that we offer in our $50 class. This is what you're paying for. You see, if you don't know how to go about properly pricing and marketing your home, free forms will not help you. The purchase agreement and other forms are used only after you find the buyer. The hard part is finding that person who wants to buy your house. This, to a large extent, is what we focus on.
Remember, folks, if you can't sell your house on your own, you will retain the services of a real estate brokerage, and probably at a very high commission rate. So, is it better to first pay $50 upfront, and therefore increase the possibility of selling your house on your own? Or, is it better to pay a large real estate commission at the closing table, having not even tried to implement our $50 plan? You decide.
Note: At the end of class, you'll receive a complete FSBO package. It will be yours to take with you.
Payment For Class: Cash or Check. If you're paying by check, make it payable to Paquette Realty.
Option: After we help you find a buyer for your home, and only with your permission to proceed, we would then handle your entire real estate transaction for only 1% of the sale price. This option is for sellers who don't want to deal with the complexity of a real estate transaction. Our real estate services would include the writing of your offer-to-purchase agreement, any subsequent counter-offers, addendums and amendments to the purchase agreement, following up on the home inspection, following up on the purchaser's home financing, appraisal, and, coordinating the sale of your home with a real estate title agency. Finally, an associate from our company would then meet you at the real estate closing table. From A to Z, we will handle the entire sale of your home for only 1% of the sale price. Who said you can't have it all?
Broker Agency Disclosure: Since we charge only 1% total commission to sell a home, we function as transaction coordinators, only. As transaction coordinators, we don't represent the seller nor the buyer, yet provide services to complete a real estate transaction.
