Seller Step 2

Step 2. Plan your selling strategy and cut the costs of selling so that you have room to implement a lower sales price if you need to and to accept offers when they come in

82% of Sellers paying 6% commission or higher reported to an independent survey that they could not make their first offer work due to a difference in sales price and offering price of 2%.

That might not feel like a lot of money but to a $300,000 Seller, that is $6,000.00.

The good news is that you don't have to pay high commission fees to get your home sold. Companies all over the United States offer a lower selling commission utilizing the one constant source that is selling homes - the internet.

Duffy Realty alone has sold over 9,000 homes in the last 9 years.

So this is what that difference looks like in commission on the example of a $300,000 home and why this is able to get your home sold quicker.
