Default Rea. ltor rates

Do any of the experts know what the going rates that realty companies get in Wake County? We will be listing our home in the next 3-4 weeks and we are sure that we will be screwed

I would think 6% like everywhere else but in Wake I’d consider trying to sell yourself. Everything is selling quickly there. I know a few that have sold word of mouth to friends or friends of friends in short order depending on location.

First, I am in no way a realtor

Yes the realtor rates can seem quite high. (6%) But what alot of people are experiencing, with the listing agent creating a buzz with advertising, is that buyers are making above asking price offers. Which would help cover the commission.

I've been able to negotiate some especially if you are selling and then turning around and buying using the same realtor.

Depending on where you are in wake county i would consider For Sale By Owner. My neighbor just sold his own home and had five offers the first day and saved a ton of money. Anything under 450k should have offers in the first few days, that inventory is always moving fast.

Look into Carolina Choice Real Estate - It is a flat fee model & with the way the market has been in Wake Co, saves thousands without much headache. David Wilson is a good one to work with. He has sold two (2) houses for me.

I'm a licensed agent in Fuquay. Don't pay more than 6%, but you can find good agents that will list for 4.8-5%...it never hurts to ask!

I used usrealty.com. Paid $139 for the "package" that gets you 25 pics and the MLS listing plus they put it up on Zillow, Trulia, etc. Then paid $296 when the house sold. You decide how much you are willing to offer commission to the buyer's agent. I chose 2.5%, but you could chose 0. The problem with 0 is that buyers agents wont show the house since they make nothing. In the end, I sold the property to a person who did not have an agent, so I did not pay that fee. You have to handle the pic taking, writing the ad, showing the property, and negotiating the contract. If you are not comfortable doing those things then it's probably not for you. It's easy and inexpensive to have a real estate attorney handle the contract, but you still have to do the showings, etc. Lots of options in this day and age but you have to decide what you can and can't handle and how much effort you are willing to make.

Sold my last house myself with a flat fee listing agency that got it on the MLS. Paid a photographer to take good photos for 200 bucks. Literally everything has gotten more price efficient in the last 40 years, EXCEPT REAL ESTATE. You'll never convince me to pay an agent 10's of thousands to take some pictures and put it on the MLS.

6% seems standard. Mine is going on the market as soon as we find a house to move to. NeighborIng house sold in 24 hrs for $10k under asking, could have gotten full if they had more patience. It was a flip though.

If you need a good agent in Wake shoot me a PM.

I sold a lot this past February on Craigslist. I was kinda shocked but it happened and we closed the deal.

I just sold a home in Brier Creek probably using the same company. It went smoothly. Signed a offer within 24 hours.
