Let 2019 be a year of enlightenment!
1% of Sale Price
Hello, friends, my name is Clinton Paquette. Since my brokerage is a for sale by owner real estate company, I offer services to both sellers and buyers of single family residential homes and condominiums. My agency status, moreover, is that of a transaction coordinator on both sides of the real estate deal. Whether you're selling or buying within the State of Michigan, I can help you with your real estate needs. And on the selling end of the deal, my fee is only 1% of the sale price!
That's right, the day of having to negotiate for a lower percentage rate is over. Because my company is no longer a multiple listing service (MLS) member, I've been able to reduce my commission from a high of 6%, down to only 1% of the sale price. For that low rate, however, you'll have to find your own buyer. But if you're willing to take one of my FSBO classes, or closely follow my selling advice within this website, it's not as difficult as you may think. If you're a motivated seller, I can show you how to find your own buyer.
Now, regarding my commission, on the sale of a $300,000 house, my compensation would be $3,000. But on a condominium deal, closing at only $80,000, my commission would come in at only $800. Big or small sale, all of my deals receive the same degree of attention. Needless to say, the spirit of real competition is alive and well within my real estate brokerage.
Moving on, and for far too long, now, residential real estate commissions have been exorbitantly high. To exacerbate this problem, some real estate agencies are now charging even more than the typical 6% commission amount. And to my amazement, many people are paying these excessive amounts. Big fees and high commissions, of course, are a consequence of not having real competition in the residential marketplace. My 1% guarantee is an attempt to combat this ongoing problem.
The Real Estate Middleman
To be upfront, my objective is to eliminate the real estate middleman. And the middleman, of course, is the multiple listing service. Because these various entities have convinced most home sellers that their MLS concept is the only way to sell a home, they have adopted the attitude that they are entitled to all home listings. A growing number of enlightened sellers, however, are now saying no to that attitude, and the MLS member.
You see, as more home owners make their homes available via the open internet, and by-owner, many wise home buyers are no longer using a multiple listing service member to help them search for a home. In short, they are conducting their own by-owner searches. And many go on to actually find and buy their own homes. But why is this happening? Could it be said that many home purchasers finally understand that the multiple listing service seller has added a big commission to the list price of their home? The answer, of course, is yes. And they won't tolerate it any longer.
So, whether you're selling or buying within the State of Michigan, I'm here to assist you. Equally important, you don't need to take one of my $50 classes before retaining my real estate services. But if you're really motivated to sell or buy, the taking of one of my classes will save you a lot of money and time. For more information on my real estate company, please read my entire website.
