Now Listed on! and a FSBO too – call to find out how this can be

After CREA signed a ratification agreement at the end of October 2010 in essence allowing any seller the opportunity to procure a flat fee listing (only) through a licensed Realtor in order to get on the website – we listed.  Finding a Realtor in our own area proved a bit of a problem.   For one reason or another; Broker not allowing, or Realtor not offering a low enough list only fee we decided to list with Pricesmart Realty in Langley BC.  Through Price Smart we now have our house listed on line and offer a more than fair selling commission to the selling Realtor or we can sell it ourselves.

This option is fine with us as not only have we owned many houses and condos, I was a licensed Realtor for many years so we are no stranger to the contract of purchase and sale.  Having said that some buyers feel more comfortable using  their own Realtor for a transaction and that is fine too.

CREA has ratified 10 year Agreement

On Sunday October 24th I heard the news – Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) ratified an agreement that is meant to offer sellers some cost saving options.  This of course is dependant on individual Realtors progressiveness and willingness to make changes to the way they do business.

In my search to find a Realtor to list our house through the MLS I have been turned down by local Realtors.  The reasons varied but the bottom line was based on either the fear of their brokers or their own fear of change.  I totally understand as the idea of a flat fee paid to post a listing on is totally new.  Who wants to be the first…right.

Pick me, I want to be the first and I am.  We listed with a company out of Langley BC called since yesterday we have been listed at check it out.  One of the strategies in listing for a flat fee is the ability to offer a higher commission to the selling Realtor therefore (hopefully) landmarking our listing as a must see.  I will keep you posted ….
