Hi Workabee, ouch! your stings are still as sharp as ever. But, the sad thing is some of your observations are valid. Hi Hpvanc, it was an interesting discussion and I will keep it in mind. Perhaps 3 years down this path (if I am successful and persist in this industry), I might give this some serious thought as a basis for operation. In the meantime, my current focus is on learning and preparing to "walk" first.Call me naive, but I aspire to be a different kind of sales. I intend to fully carry out the part about due deligence, utmost care and client's interest above all else in my transactions. That will be part of the value that I intend to add to their sales/purchases. In return I expect full commitment and a fair compensation.:) Don't start with what fair is, everyone have different standards. And I don't want to get a sting from Workabee.Nice meeting you, take care and see you around zillow's Q&A.
You can always use a discount broker like Zip or Redfin. They are not full service brokerages. if you are willing to put in some work yourself that might be a great solution. As always, you get what you pay for. Realtors don't get paid by the hour and only if they can close the deal. All the time and effort and marketing they put in up front is on their expense. Just think about it this way. Only the best can survive because they sell properties. I wish you best of luck with finding the right match for you. Tanja with My Team SF
I think that you would find in interviewing agents there are many out there that will stick to their fees however ones that maybe don't have to split with their company are able to do some negotiating. It really does sound like your looking for more of an al a carte type service of that of a flat fee broker.
Hi hpvanc,Some of those are good suggestions, that I would agree to.Item 7 is kind of hard not to include. I believe the majority of people will stick to the deal and not take advantage of people, but there are always some that might give in to the temptation of letting the listing expire and then contact a buyer that put in the offer. That condition is to reduce the appeal of that temptation. Perhaps, modify item 7 to:7) if seller sells to any person or their relative that submitted an offer during listing period then seller will pay listing agent 1.5% of list price fee irregardless of whether another listing agent was signed up.Anyhow have a good day, thanks for letting me think on this interesting idea. I will keep it in mind.
