Frequently Asked Questions: From Sellers

What are the real estate fees for selling a house?

Real estate agent fees (or commissions) is at a national average of about 5% of the final sales price. This is paid by you (seller) and is split between your listing agent and the buyer’s agent.

Can I sell my house on my own?

Yes you can! Your property would be considered as FSBO (“fizz-bo”), or for-sale-by-owner. By doing this, you may avoid some of the closing costs (your buyer might have an agent representing him/her) so you pocket more of your sale.

There’s so much a listing agent can do to help, that an independent seller can’t. Agents have the specialized skills, tools, and experience that are definitely worth more than the potential pains of having togo through the selling process on your own.

"David knows what buyers are looking for. Preparation of the property prior to listing is key. He also has excellent resources available to assist with anything required to get the home ready and how to present it. He guided us through the entire process from beginning to end."
