For Sale By Owner Guru Hires a Real Estate Agent

Well, well, well…The owner of “” has hired a real estate agent to sell his own private residence.

I guess determining correct value, showing his home to unqualified buyers, negotiating low-ball offers to the highest and best price, writing legal contracts, navigating inspections and resulting issues, arranging financing, following title work, arguing failed appraisal, arranging moving details and closing escrow is worth ONE HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS in commission (presuming a commission rate of 5%, below national average).

Josh Salman of the Herald-Tribune writes in this article: Its website claims “ allows you to reach the most potential buyers in the shortest amount of time, in the most effective (the Internet) and most cost effective manner (no commission!) possible.”

No, Mr. Bennati, that is what I do. Thank you for publicly and fervently endorsing my value. My clients agree with you.
