Seeking opinions (Pro's and Con's) about 1% realtors (Redfin etc.) for Selling a owner occupied homeI am trying to summarize my friends argument that 1% realtors are equal to a traditional realtors (of 2.5% OR more) a. 1% realtors do the same thing what other realtors does - they market, they put out right signs where possible & do legal docsb. Both listing agents don't do much after putting the home on sale other than holding open homes - even these open homes are outsourced to junior realtorsc. Gone are those days where 'realtors negotiate better' because, there is this thing called 'internet' and specifically Zillow, Trulia etc. can clearly point out comparisions including location, sq ft, amenities etc. There is also this forum (such as ask a question here) that can be used to inquire 'desirable or not' type questionsd. Realtors have the same network and encourage each other in all ways to close the sale - regardless of selling agents 1% or 2% or 2.5% or 3% or 3.5% or whatever.However, I fail to agree with him and I am not sure why. I am not feeling confident.
