The Real Estate Choice

There are really two choices in the world of selling real estate, being: to hire an agent, or not hire an agent. That is the proverbial question.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “agent” as one who is authorized to act for or in the place of another. So to boil it down, when you hire a real estate agent you are basically hiring someone to be you and act in your interests.

There are a bunch of different arrangements that agents offer, but generally speaking, if you decide to simply hire a full-service real estate agent, you are looking at anywhere from 3-6% commissions on the sale price of your home depending on your location.

The other option is to forego the agency relationship and to take matters into your own hands by selling your home on your own, otherwise known as for sale by owner.

Typical Real Estate Agent Services

There can be great value in hiring someone to take this responsibility on for you depending on your circumstances. For instance, your agent has an obligation to act in your best interests and will typically provide you with the following services, among a few others:

  • Home staging advice
  • Pricing Suggestions
  • Photography
  • Measurements and detail descriptions for marketing
  • Marketing Services including online, multiple listing service (the MLS) or possibly print
  • Install lawn sign
  • Buyer access, viewings and open houses
  • Negotiation with prospective buyer

If you hire a full service real estate agent to take these things on and your home is say, $500,000, it’s likely that between the listing realtor and the buyer’s realtor your are going to pay anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000 for these services. Additionally after all of this is said and done you will need to hire the services of a lawyer to complete the conveyancing transaction and to get the deal done. This will likely cost you around $1000.

So all told on a $500,000 house you are going to spend anywhere from $16,000 to $31,000 to sell your house, plus tax, depending on the commission structure.

Based on your personal circumstances, you will need to ask yourself whether or not this is value for your money.

Why Lehhko

One of the major reasons why many people hire real estate agents forego selling their home on their own is a fear that they will not have the required skill to organize and market their property by themselves.

Lehhko’s objective is to alleviate much of this pain by offering tools designed to help owners through the process on their own. Lehhko’s approach is unique and effective approach and it’s accessible to regular people.

Lehhko’s main features include:

  1. An online marketplace that allows users to post their listings and use it as a marketing hub for online promotion;
  2. Online promotion tools through the use of search engines and other means. This allows users to actively control the flow of traffic to their individual listings; and 
  3. Analytics that show the performance of a user’s efforts and the traffic to their site.

We have assumed that there is a good possibility that a potential buyer may come to a Lehhko seller through a buyer’s agent. Well, hey that’s ok.
