The Real Cost of a Real Estate Agent

So you want to sell your house in St Petersburg, FL? There’s a traditional way to do it, and there’s our way! What’s our way? Well, we close faster and offer more certainty with our offer to start– let’s explain what we do! We pay cash for houses in St Petersburg, and we do the deal quickly and with no fuss. That’s actual cash, for your house. We know what you’re thinking: where does the Realtor come into this? What’s their commission? The answer is simple – he doesn’t!

There are no commissions paid by the Seller. It’s all about money, time and getting the deal you deserve. Let’s start by looking at a traditional real estate deal.

The Traditional Method

You get a Real Estate Agent on board to handle the sale of your house. Great, they know the area and the job, and can rustle up the potential buyers. A few open house days, a good amount of money spent on marketing your property, and eventually you get a buyer. After the obligatory home inspector visit everything goes through, and all is great.

Until you see that the Agent has taken the 6% commission of the selling price. Now, when you signed them up you weren’t really thinking about it; you needed someone to do the job, and they were the right fit. And after all 6% isn’t much, is it? Take a look now at what 6% is:

According to the latest figures the average price for a house in St Petersburg FL is around $280,000. Let’s say you just sold a house for that price. 6% of $280,000 is $16,800! Suddenly that little number ‘6’ looks a whole lot bigger! 

But that’s an average house. What if you sold your 5-bed, 3-bath luxury home in St Petersburg for $600,000? The Realtor gets a nice earner of $36,000! Even if you sell a smaller 1 bed apartment for, say, $120,000 the Realtor gets $7200! You get the picture, but the important part is this: what the Realtor takes is an instant reduction in what you get from the sale.
