The real goal for you should be this:
"How can I sell my property for top dollar in this market and economy"?
As a matter of fact, why don't you post that question and compare the answer you receive? I bet you will be amazed.
I monitor the performance if "discount" and MLS Entry Only Brokers on quarterly basis and here is what I can report:
1. When they get a listing it fails to sell twice as often.
2. When it sells they receive 2-2.6% less than a full service broker.
3. It takes them longer to sell.
According to the link below homes values have declined 62% in the last 12 months. That is 5% per month. And you are worried about one point in commission? I'd be worried about how fast you can sell my house for the best price. YIKES!
