Sell Your Home Your Way

Traditional ways of selling a home are becoming harder and harder these days. Economy shifts, political issues, stock market variations, etc all lead to influences in the home market. With all those influences that can help or hinder home sales - your equity is more important than ever! Our system allows you to sell by owner and be listed on the local mls. What does this mean for you? It means that if you sell the home, you will not pay another dime! You get agent representation, extreme exposure, and the opportunity to save some serious cash. If the property is sold by an agent, your negotiated commission will be roughly half the of what most agencies negotiate! That equals thousands for most sellers... "Thousands Saved" by listing with WHY USA Schramm & Associates.

A Few Words About

Moving valuables off location as well as safeguarding the property from potential injuries is great advice. Leaving pets and valuables at the property could be probelmatic.

Questions And Answers

There are so many questions when selling a home! We attempt to cover the major ones below. If you cannot find the answers you are looking for here, please contact us!

Why Should You Choose Us?

In order to Save:

Save equity, Save time, Save effort, and Save yourself the frustration of going it alone. You will still have the option of selling by owner and saving thousands vs what percentages other agencies are negotiating! At roughly half the amount, you can get all the service, extreme exposure, and know you and your property are getting every bit of attention you deserve!

How Much Is The Commission?

In the real estate world, there is no "set" commission. It is "always" negotiated. Referring to a set or normal amount is not allowed. When you negotiate the commission, you must do the math to know how much it will actually cost you in every price scenario. With that in mind, figure roughly half of what most agencies are charging: that is where our company finds the home seller is very happy.

What If "I" Sell The Home?

If no agent is involved in the transaction, you will not pay another dime. Your upfront cost of $990 covers getting you listed on the MLS, qchomeshow.com, and entitles you to agent representation. With that vaulable representation you receive a trained, licensed, and experienced agent to handle negotiating the sale price, coordinate the flow of documents, schedule and oversee inspections, and be there for you at closing to be certain everything goes smoothly.

How Long Is The Listing?

Depending on the service package you choose, the listing length can be vary and be negotiated. Most of our listings are until you sell. If you choose to pull the property off the market, you have a designated time frame to relist the home without paying an additional fee. The FSBO+MLS option is an "Until It Sells" package. This is our best package for the money. You will get professional photos, be listed on realtor.com, qchomeshow.com, and all the other realty sites that feed off the mls!

Will You Host Open Houses?

This will depend on the service package you select. If you opt for full service: yes, we can host open houses for you. Bare in mind that the FSBO+MLS package allows you to sell by owner. With the option, if the agent hosts the open house and the buyer comes from that open, it will be sold via the agent and a commission will be charged. If you host the open house and the buyer comes without an agent, you will then not be charged a commission. So, hosting your own open house is a huge advantage for you to save.

Will You Advertise My Home?

Your property will be advertised on the multiple listing service (MLS), qchomeshow.com, whyusaqc.com, Realtor.com, and all of the agent sites that feed off the MLS! We can also add your property to zillow.com if you choose. We do not purchase newspaper advertisements as print advertising has been defeated by the internet. Why place one photo with a few lines of text for hundreds of dollars when you can place lots of photos and details online? Lets face it, most buyers use the internet to hunt for homes these days.

Enjoy some of the articles we have found or written regarding Real Estate.


Choosing the Right FSBO Website

The biggest mistake sellers often make is to assume all fsbo sites are all the same. Some of the local qc fsbo sites have a restrictive contract, other fsbo homes sites ask for large additional payments to be made at closing, and some just fall short of getting you the exposure you need.


Sell By Owner And Be On The MLS!

You can sell by owner AND be listed with the agent. For an upfront fee, your home will be listed on the local mls, qchomeshow.com, realtor.com, and will also be shown on all the other real estate sites that feed off that mls! The best part is: If you sell the home, you do not owe the agent another dime!


Preparing For Photographs

Here are some good tips on how to prepare a home to be photographed. Animals: Please have all animals safely secured inside the garage before and during the scheduled photo shoot. If the weather is extremely hot, find a secure spot that can occupy the animal for the duration of the photo shoot.


Why you do not want "New" on your Ad

Although it may be information the viewer would like to have, it is not information that would help the seller. New or old, the property should be compared with others without the factor of how long it has been on the market. We see sites that place "new" on their listings
