It is our goal to provide you multiple offers from real estate agents within your local area to represent you in a full service listing at the most affordable rate.
Our journey began the day we were married, August 2007. The following week we had finally found the “perfect” home. We purchased it–a new construction 3 bedroom 2 and 1/2 bath home saving a little over $5,000 off the asking price. The following year the housing market crashed, resulting in a drastic decline in the value of our home. This was our first home. We planned to stay for years, but as our family increased, our space decreased. We were left with no choice but to search again for a new home!
We tried for months to sell our home with the popular “for sale by owner” websites. Our goal was to save what little equity remained by saving on real estate agent commissions and putting it toward our next home. If successful, we would save nearly $8,000. After multiple price drops and lack of interest from agents to show our home, we had no choice but to list with a realtor. Within two months we had several showings, an offer, and finally a contract for close to asking price. The downfall? Forking over $8,000 to our agent. Although the agent was crucial to our success, it would have been nice to carryover some of that equity into the purchase of our new home.
As our family continued to grow and the market improved, we pondered the idea of selling yet again and building our dream home. When speaking with a realtor and realizing that 6% commission (the area’s going rate) was basically set in stone, our equity we had worked so hard to build would have been for nothing. It was that moment we realized our opportunity and the concept of AgentSaver.com was born.
How much will you save? Best of luck!
