Assistance selling a home without a realtor
Realtors are great, but they can be expensive. Selling your home without a realtor might save you thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars. However, it is a complicated process which might result in a lawsuit if everything is not done properly.
Further, Ohio is very strict regarding marketing assistance for owners selling their own home. If you see an advertisement for assistance and that person or entity is not a real estate agent or attorney acting in their capacity as an attorney, they are probably breaking the law.
I offer a flat fee of $495 for contracts and required disclosures. I will capture electronic signatures and assist with creating an addendum if needed. I can order title insurance and closing services for you and oversee the process. The fee is usually payable at closing and can be paid from proceeds of the sale. Further, if the sale fails to proceed for any reason, there is no fee to the client.
Buying a Home without a realtor
Many home buyers believe that the seller pays the realtor, so hiring one to assist buying a home is essentially free. A quick review of the closing costs can confirm that the realtor fees were attributable to the Seller. However, I believe that is a myth. Who is writing the check in the transaction, after all? The Buyer.
If you decide to purchase a home, even one listed by a realtor, reach out to me to discuss the potential benefits of submitting an offer without a realtor. I can help you make a competitive offer and assist you all the way through closing.
Most of the time my fee can be rolled into the transaction and is payable at closing.
