You, the Agent and the Buyer work together to get the deal done!  

     Very Easy!

              Much Better! 

                      Less Cost!

Fewer Agents.. means everyone saves!


The more Agents who are involved in your transaction.. the more money it will cost! 

 

With SO MANY AGENTS out there, why does it still cost so much?  Why is it always 6%? Everyone has a Real Estate license...so must not be that complicated... right?


Why is the new agent worth 6% and the old experienced agent worth 6%?   Figure that one out!

FORGET  THE

      OPEN-HOUSE!  

    

Open houses are NOT designed to sell your home.  These are for Agent:

   1) Meet your neighbors

   2) Troll for new buyers

   3) Brand the Realty Company

   4) Appease the Seller..

 

The "open house" is a completely uncontrolled and sometimes chaotic! 

     Do you want a bunch of non-qualified and unknown people wondering through your home?

HECK NO!  What about petty theft, identity theft, personal safety, etc.?? FORGET IT! 

"Open Houses" are obsolete....they not safe, they do NOT benefit the Seller... that is a fact!

Know your Prospect!


  You need to know who will be inside your home.  

     

Whether you use our Good-Bye Owner Service or not... we will very gladly send you some info. and a set of questions to ask of the prospect.  


Ask the questions, get some answers and decide if you want the showing or not.  You are not "required" to let just anyone into your home.  Be sure the showing is right for you.


If the Buyer checks out, GREAT!  Set a a convenient time.  Prepare the home, hold your showing!

   (But don't show your home to a "buyer" who has no money...nuts!

  Buyers prefer to know YOU!


Buyers appreciate knowing a little more about the property...


Buyers always value the knowledge you bring.  They enjoy dealing in a direct and amicable fashion. 


Enjoy open & candid,  communication as you complete your transaction.    

    What about a LOCKBOX on my house??


NOPE!  Forget that too!


You own the home, you can be present at the showings.


You know your home the best.  You can answer questions and monitor the showing situation. 


Agents have been known to leave doors wide open at 10 below!  They leave heat turned to high, sometimes something breaks or turns up missing..and nobody ever knows a thing!  Don't put up with that risk.     


YES, It is possible to have a trusted friend or relative host the showing... so it is possible to use this service remotely... but the bottom line is the use of a lock-box is NOT advised. 


SAVE TIME, MONEY!


We have saved our customers a lot of money!  Almost a half million bucks so far! 

(You can be next)!

... you have built up the equity through home improvements - and paying down your mortgage...why not keep as much of your equity as possible!  


Flyers - Print Ads ...

All for "branding".   

Save a tree and don't bother.  

Your buyers on Zillow and Realtor.com

Not driving about looking for flyer boxes.  

 ....BE SAFE!

This is the first order of business... (then your time is important).  Make sure the prospect is qualified to be in your home.   

WHO CONTROLS TRAFFIC?

 Agents like to think they find the house for the buyer..... well, NOT these days!  

Real buyers know the inventory, they know the market. 


If your price is right - the sign will work, if your price is too high, the sign won't work!  Reduce the commission so you can offer a better asking price!   


The fewer Agents involved, the less you have to raise the price to pay everyone!

Who pays?       YOU PAY! 

SO many agents! How are they all worth the same 6% ?

If a house is Great Falls is 100K

The same house in Missoula MT would be about 200K... right?


100K X 6% = $6,000  (Great Falls)

200K X 6% = $12,000 (Missoula)

  • Does an Agent in Missoula bring more value than the Agent in Great Falls?
  • Is it more work to sell a house in Missoula than in Great Falls? 
  • What does the value of the home have to do with the value of the Agent?  
  • Doesn't the Agent bring the same value.. irrespective of the price of the home?
  • If your home happens to be worth 300K instead of 150K, does the agent bring twice the value?  Do they do twice the work? 
  • Will your Agent offer Reasonable Flat fee for Service? IF NOT - GIVE US A CALL!
  • The bigger the Jack-Pot, the more people will enter the Business, and that doesn't help anyone...


Is the Buyer-Agent paid  like they are working  for the Seller?

Do you know how much money your Agent is pulling off your transaction?  (INCLUDING SELLER BONUSES)??


If your Buyer-Agent is collecting a commission based on a percent of your sale price, this means:

  • The more you pay for the house, the more money your Agent personally makes!
  • And the Less you pay for your home, the less money your Buyer-Agent Makes!
  • So, your Buyer-Agent looses  incentive to drive the price down?  That makes no sense...right?
  • The Seller and Listing Agent negotiate the Buyer Agent fee...right?  And do you ever really know how much that fee ends up being?  Is a sale bonus added for even more Agent incentive?
  • Why does a Seller pay a Buyer-Agent a bonus, rather than just dropping the sale price?
  • If your Buyer-Agent is paid like like the Seller Agent, how can they be a Buyer Agent? 
  • Do you see the problem here?  

Class action lawsuit points to passive collusion?? 

   

DID YOU KNOW...currently there is a (class- action) lawsuit against the National Association of Realtors; and several Real Estate entities such as Coldwell Banker, REMAX, Century 21,  and more.

  • Do you know about this? The agents know about it... why is this  being ignored?  
  • It is about the passive collusion and the 5% to  6% industry norm.
  • Why do all agents charge the same fees?  
  • Do Agents steer buyers to properties where they make the most money?
  • Why does the Buyer-Agent not negotiate their own fee?
  • Why is the value of the Buyer Agent determined by the Listing Agent?
  • Should you know how much your Buyer-Agent is making off your transaction?
  • Isn't it time to ask some questions?
  • Think about who pays the fees... Think about how the fee is paid! 
  • One thing is for sure... the more Agents that are involved; the more the transaction will cost.
  • .. somebody has to pay!

KEEP INNOVATING OR GO HOME!

If you don't come to work each day to help find a better way....then why come to work?

Is your Agent finding ways to save you from the excessive real estate fees?

The 6% Commission rate has not changed for almost a hundred years!   WHY? 

The "Internet of Things" (IoT) is affecting every industry.... all "other" businesses are adjusting!

Travel agents were the first.  Now, change is across the board, retail, industrial, auto, even financial services are almost all FLAT FEE for Service...  

Banks are dropping fees, BUT REAL ESTATE IS IMMUNE?  (ONLY IF YOU LET IT)!

WHEN WILL THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY NORM BE A FLAT FEE FOR SERVICE?

A FEE THAT BETTER REPRESENTS THE ACTUAL WORK OR VALUE THEY BRING?  

We are leading that change.  Giving you real answers.  Getting choices on the table. 

Email us with your questions, anytime! info@goodbyeowner.com  

Many Companies are going to very low, or reasonable flat fees.


 Other alternatives are available..


Spend  the money you save...

...on YOU!

Don't want to pay 6%?   You don't have to anymore!
