Will Discount Internet Real Estate Bokerages Replace Local Realtor Expert?

Will discount internet real estate brokerages replace local Realtor experts? We recently took a listing as a seller found us online. She had previously been on the market three months. Poor seller made the mistake of hiring a discount internet Realtor.

She said they told her to buy a vendor combination key box, and she made flyers and showed the property. The property sat for these months while the seller made three house payments, paid HOA fees, utilities and maintenance costs. These ongoing expenses were triple the amount she potentially would have saved. If a property doesn’t sell with a discount brokerage, it doesn’t mean much. Happens a lot.

We took the listing, immediately staged the home and started our complete marketing plan. Our open houses generated several opportunities and we put the house in escrow within 30 days with a fabulous offer. The seller was thrilled and so appreciative. The best money she spent was . . . wait for it, hiring a quality local area real estate team!

Will discount internet real estate brokerages replace a local Realtor expert? Not likely. Self help real estate does not work. We were thrilled to sell this property for the seller.
