Here are your optons.
Be aware, for professionals, this is a business, not a hobby.
These options ARE available.
1. Zero...you pay nothing. nada, not a dime.
2. You pay agent flat fee for MLS entry
3. YOu pay flat fee for MLS entry and limited service
4. You pay pro-rated contingency compensation.
5. you pay contingency compensation
6. You pay 100% over base price
7. Deffered compensation on tertiary market.
Of these seven optons 3 are gauranteed to erode your profit, but fully meet your 'cheapest' expectation.
What you are exibing is the thinking..the mindset of those who will be forever POOR. These who are forever POOR always think in terms of 'What does it cost?" Those who understand wealth, who actually would like to rub against wealth, must change the tinking from cost to 'How much will I make?"
Let me repeat...."HOW MUCH WILL I MAKE?"
The profit mentality, what you thought you had, is outcome based (not what you are exhibiiting), not cost based (what you are exhibiting), Those who expereince profit, who have wealth, know you will need to invest in the resources needed to create wealth. Some, seeing another who apppears naive, swoop in with the assurances that assuage the fear of the 'cost' minded.
Until you truly grasp this reality, you will be forever working with those who will pick your pockets clean and you will be completely unaware. The one thing you will know is....Your money has evaporated.
At this moment 14 have responded.
This is your chance to embrace the wealth mindset and ask the agents you interview...
"How much profit will I make?"
(Smell the coffee. This is the question JON is asking himself. He IS profit minded.)
You will discover, the quality of the service you engage, (note the word is QUALITY) is dramaticly more imporatnt than the COST!
The choice, however, is always yours to make. That's what is so incredible about real estate, there are so many choices to match what buyers and sellers want. So, are you seriously consider #1?
Best of success,
