You might discount yourself into a failed listing.

Scheduling an appointment to show a house should be easy, right? Not always. Sometimes choosing a "discount company" discounts the sellers right out of the market. The house I attempted to show had been on the market for about a month and I am guessing they were wondering why no one was showing it. Even worse, there was no way to submit an offer, no contact person, no agent, no seller info. In the location and price point it should have been shown many times and maybe had an offer. Sellers: Don't cut yourself short to save a few thousand dollars. If you are offering buyer agent fees and paying something to the discount house, why not give your home, probably your biggest assett, the credit it deserves to have it marketed and SOLD properly. It is amazing how many times I see listings that are listed with a fee agency or discount broker and the zip code is wrong or there are no inside pictures. If a 12 year old can sell a baseball better on EBay, what in the world are you doing?!?
