If you’re looking at buying or selling a home in North Texas in any way, shape, or form, you’re almost certainly aware of the present state of the market right now. Houses are landing on the market at record highs, but competitive offers are often far above even the highest asking prices. Houses listed at $450,000 may easily be sold at $500,000 or higher, with all sorts of seller-friendly terms attached to the offer. Cash offers are even becoming a fairly common offering. Based on the impressive numbers these last couple of months, Dallas-Ft. Worth is shaping up to be one of the hottest seller’s markets in US history. But what about the other side of the coin? What if you’re buying?
While all of the facts above might be incredibly enticing to sellers, they can be intimidating to people planning to buy sometime in summer 2021. Even if you want to sell first, the prospect of finding your next home might be keeping you from selling at record high prices because you know you’ll have to buy at record highs as well. Despite these challenges, now is an outstanding time to sell if you’re prepared to deal with what comes after, and we are here to help you do just that.
Real Estate Brokerage with No Fees: The Edge You Need for the Current Market
When homes are being bought and sold well over asking price, you need a way to squeeze every bit of savings out of the deal if you want to buy. Real estate brokerages with no fees, like Team Nelson, are designed to do just that. When you buy a house with us, we’ll sell your home commission free, putting that money directly back into your pocket. In most cases when you sell, you’re responsible for paying the listing fees, which typically total 6% of the sale (3% goes to the buyer’s side, the other 3% goes to the seller’s side). But when you buy with Team Nelson, we forgo the listing fee when we sell your house.
In an ordinary market, this extra 3% back in your pocket is a nice bonus, but in DFW’s current red-hot market, the 3% you save can easily be the difference between you getting your dream home or settling for something less until the market calms down. Our method will save you thousands in commissions, setting you up to make a more competitive offer on your next house.
