Using Online Marketing to Reduce Fees?

Approximately 90% of all sales are the result of a Seller's Realtor and a Buyer's Realtor working together using the MLS system. Research also shows that most Buyers are finding properties online. For these reasons Scott Williams has decided to focus his marketing dollars cost effectively on the MLS and internet.

Scott Williams also believes that the amount of work required by a Seller's's Realtor to effectively market on MLS is relatively standard. Other then experience and negotiating skills, all Seller's agents are required to provide the same standard contracts, paper work and agency duties. 

By refraining from wasting money on ineffective marketing Scott is able to offer a $3450.00 flat listing fee. This alone will save you thousands. You, the seller choose the amount of commission to be offered to the Buyer's Agent. To provide the maximum exposure, and attract as many Buyer's Agents as possible, Scott recommends a Buyer's Agent commission that is competitive with the rates offered by other listings.
