Hurrah for Mark Alves and hundreds of others who have given the Help-U-Sell-rate realtor an opportunity to demonstrate his professional skills and help the homeowner keep more of his profit.
Realtors who call themselves “full-service” realtors are really only six-percenters. At one time 6% was a fair commission, but that was back when homes were selling for $20,000--$30,000 in the late 1960s. Times have changed. Today homes are selling for $150,000-plus, and 6% does not justify the commission.
You can sell your own homes! Just put up a sign . . . get an agreement with the prospective buyers and take it to the nearby escrow office. They are the ones who do all the work and see it through for you . . . not the realtor.
