FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • 1. How can you afford to list a home for only 1% when other agents are charging up to 3 times that amount?
  • In the past, it was expensive to market a home. Agents had to buy advertising space in newspapers and magazines. Listings are now syndicated to 1,000’s of websites, with 90% or more of Buyers looking online. Also, many Realtors/ Brokers spend thousands of dollars just to get your Seller Lead.(finding home sellers)...These leads typically require 25%-35% referral fees of your listing fee paid to online sites or other Brokers. Ken & San Diego Home Seller does not purchase expensive seller leads or pay out referral fees. San Diego House Seller is the owner of all of its websites and independently markets without using expensive outside sources. This allows San Diego House Seller to provide unsurpassed service and representation while saving you thousands!

 

  • 2. Why do most Agents/ Brokers charge so much more?
  • Many Realtor/Brokers like to create a lot of mystique about selling homes, misleading sellers and insisting that the process is complicated. They will say you get what you pay for; Not True. If the home is presented properly and priced right by an experienced Real Estate Agent or Broker it will sell quickly at Top Dollar regardless of which Agent/Broker you choose.

 

  • 3. Will my home get the same exposure?
  • All Brokerages have the option to syndicate their listing to 1000’s of websites. I syndicate my listings to all the possible sites. I also advertise on other locations, like Craigslist.
 
  • 4. Do you provide less service?
  • No, I most likely offer more service than typical.
 
  • 5. Do you use a professional photographer to take photos of my home?
  • Yes! I work with a professional photographer, who I believe takes the best photos. Professional photos will make your home look its best.

 

  • 6. How long of a listing agreement do you require?
  • I don’t have a mandatory listing time requirement, however, in today’s market a 75-day listing agreement is appropriate. The first two weeks of the listing period are for “pre-marketing” exposure. It takes planning to get your home ready to market. The most on-line traffic your home will receive is within the first two weeks. Your home has to show as close to “model home” condition as possible with gorgeous photos the day it is listed in the MLS.
 
  • 7. Do I have to remodel or spend a lot of money to get my home ready to sell?
  • I believe that netting the most money out of the sale of your home is the most important thing that I can help you do. I’m going to spend time with you going over the inside and outside of your home and make a detailed list for you on quick, inexpensive fixes to make your home stand out. My goal is to improve the marketability of your home.
 
  • 8. How do I know how much money I will net from the sale of my home?
  • The amount of net profit is calculated by subtracting the total sum of money owed on the house and the costs associated with selling your home from the final selling price. I will provide you with an estimated net sheet.
 
  •  9. How much do I need to pay the Buyer’s Agent?
  • Buyer’s agents typically expect to receive 2.5 to 3% commission.
 
  • 10. Are you a Realtor?
  • Yes, I am a Realtor. I am a member of the local Greater San Diego Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.
