HOW TO SELL YOUR OWN PROPERTY AND SAVE A FORTUNE
FOR SELLERS WHO WANT TO SAVE A BUNDLE ON BROKER COMMISSIONS
How To Sell Your Property With A Back Up Plan
Since the need to save money is universal, it's easy for me to understand why you want to save commission dollars. I've actually done my own For Sale By Owner deal and saved a ton of money by eliminating the broker commission fees. I understand your motivation completely.
But--in case you aren't getting anywhere on your own, you can have my help & I'll sell your real estate. Here's the short explanation on how this works:
I'll use my advertising, my website, my internet syndication outlets, and proprietary marketing strategies to find that elusive buyer. I work all day long, every day of the week so you can be sure your situation will be top priority and get the attention it deserves. I don't play at selling real estate. I get it done or my family doesn't eat.
Essentially, I am betting all my resources that I'll sell your place before you do. That's a worthwhile goal and I am sure you'll be happy to pay my commission if I bring that hard to find buyer in this beat up economy. Remember, we are marketing simultaneously and maybe you will bring the buyer first and save that commission.
If I make the sale to someone I've introduced using this process, I get paid a commission. You are under no obligation to accept an offer or agree to anything more than a One Time Showing Agreement.
A more detailed and broad based explanation is offered below. I know you are skeptical. You should be. You can always meet me personally before making any decisions. I'll be pleased to go over the details.
John Kavaller: Licensed NYS Broker and Realtor®
Maybe you've decided to sell your own property because giving away your cash to a broker isn't good business. How hard can it really be to sell your own home anyway? And why wouldn't you give it a shot?
Why am I putting this information out? That's a valid question. So before I point you in the right direction, let me tell you why I'm sharing some pretty good tips on how to do it on your own. If you want to skip the explanation--jump directly to the tips here. Find more FSBO information resources at page bottom.
WHY JOHN KAVALLER WOULD OFFER THIS INFORMATION:
There is a way to sell your own property and use an agent without committing yourself. You can advertise on your own, read all the relevant on-line material regarding marketing techniques, and successfully negotiate a deal on your own. Information on selling real estate is all over the net and you could save yourself a bundle in commission fees by actively engaging the selling process.
I can help you sell your property too. Since real estate is my daily bread and butter, I receive many requests every day for information on all sorts of real estate from the public at large. I have a good sized advertising budget that draws potential buyers to my website to explore listed properties in the Sullivan County, NY Catskills. You leverage my advertising to get your property sold.
My Zillow, Trulia, Point 2, Yahoo, and Realtor.com material shovels hundreds of folks to my website every month. That's a lot of leads coming in from potential buyers who might very well have interest in your home and property-that is if you think joining hands serves the purpose to move your property into the SOLD COLUMN.
In addition to the big property aggregation sites, my business membership in the Sullivan County NY MLS, Local Sullivan County Board of REALTORS®, & National Association of REALTORS® adds credibility and marketing power to real estate I can offer. These influencial factors makes it likely that potential buyers will have the confidence to ask me for information on YOUR HOME-and that's the first step to selling your place.
A FSBO contacted me around the second week of January 2012. Mr. FSBO wanted me to help him sell a multi-unit property that was on the market way longer than it should have been. Mr. FSBO had done all the right things in his attempt to sell his own Sullivan County, NY property. He advertised on craigslist. He designed and implemented a beautifully executed website featuring his offering. He fielded inquiries, set up showings, toured the property with interested parties. Mr. FSBO (and I do have his real name of course b/c we're in contract) put up large signs in his yard to capture road warriors passing by. This large and well maintained apartment building was very aggressively priced--read---way under market. Yet it was still unsold.
The owner sought me out based on the idea that he would still be able to sell his own real estate in Sullivan County and I would also be working to bring a buyer. Mr. FSBO was drawn to the idea that we could make a simple agreement based on individual circumstances. If I found an interested party, we'd sign the "One Time Showing Agreement" and if my client proceeded to closing, I'd received a fair commission. We discussed the commission rate and agreed in amiable fashion.
It just so happened, I was working with two clients looking for just the type of situation Mr. FSBO owned and was selling. I immediately contacted both my clients regarding Mr. FSBO's opportunity. Within 2 days,Mr. FSBO and my client made a deal. This concept can work to sell your Sullivan County, NY real estate too. I'd be happy to provide the owner and new buyer as references to substantiate this real life illustration.
THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE. AS SUCH, PLEASE CONSULT PROFESSIONAL COUNSEL FOR COMPLETE CLARITY AND UNDERSTANDING UNDER THE LAW.
How This Is Accomplished:
Through a: One Time Showing Agreement Listing
Also called a "One Time Listing Agreement". This is an agreement whereby an FSBO (For Sale By Owner) agrees to let an agent show the home to an interested buyer and pay a commission to the agent if that showing results in a sale. The agreement ensures the broker/agent of fair remuneration for bringing a willing and able buyer to the table. It's simple, understandable and works to your best advantage.

Here are the nuts and bolts of how I can help you sell your property without committing to a long term contract.
We'we'll discuss your property. In short order, I'll have the information and photos needed to market your real estate. Using my own tools, marketing devices, and contacts, I'll work to bring you a legitimate buyer. After the closing, you'll owe me a fair commission we arranged together. We can discuss and negotiate the commission rate when appropriate.
On the other hand, if you find your own buyer, my efforts and our association are complete and no commission from you is due. The only piece of paper you will need to sign is the One Time Listing Agreement which is self-explanatory and is a simple contract between you and me. May I suggest you have an attorney review it before signing.
I will provide a fresh agreement for each potential buyer I bring. You can continue to market your property simultaneously. This arrangement maximizes your ability to bring your own buyer and avoid ANY commission. On the other hand, you have a dedicated agent working hard to earn his due. Now you have both PLAN A & PLAN B WORKING TO GET YOUR REAL ESTATE SOLD.

IT'S YOUR MONEY ON THE TABLE. I GET IT!
FACTS ALL SELLERS SHOULD KNOW BEFORE PLACING THAT SIGN ON YOUR LAWN WITH YOUR PHONE NUMBER. ARTICLE ON DAILY NEWS ONLINE,TRULIA, QUEENS EXAMINER, AND TOPIX-MIDDLE VILLAGE.
(1) Since the economic Conditions has affected many in the past 3 years, that also increased crime threefold in all areas. Confirm these facts yourself by calling or visiting the 104 Presinct. Break ins, muggings, Bank robberies, Push ins after they ring the Bell, Seniors being held up after cashing their Social Security checks by gunpoint,etc. This is no joke, and a very serious matter.
(2) Your sign is outdoors, someone calls to see your home, you and your family are at risk two ways. One for an immediate hold up, or visual inspection of your home, locks, security systems, etc.(FOR ANOTHER TIME). And think about this, you have a child, her/his name is on her bedroom wall, and you don't know if you your allowing a child Predator in your home.
(3) Qualifications- Half the buyers who are serious, have been pre-qualified when shopping for a home. But many have so much debt these days, they end up with bad credit scores. And Those buyers will never qualify to get a mortgage. But you let them in because they rang your bell, and or called you from their car in front of your door.
(4) choosing the right Realtor to represent you, pre-qualifying customers prior to appointments, comforting you to know who is coming to your home, is worth the Peace of Mind and the Real Estate Fee Commission.
There are worthy Brokers in our Community who know what they are doing. Plenty to choose from.
Be Safe, Be smart this is Reality today.

Jimmy-- You make excellent and relevant points. All consumers need to be careful about sharing personal information and maintain a strong sense of physical protection. Any action giving entrance to your home should be given extensive consideration. Common sense should over ride a desire to save commission dollars. Self serving you say? It may further the professional real estate view that we understand the business and are worth the dollars invested, but it also happens to be good thinking and correct action to consider what Jimmy has outlined in favor of using a Realtor® who knows how to prequalify buyers.
