Some not-so-positive experiences with real estate agents had Jessica searching for a better seller solution as she prepared to list her California home. Luckily, she found Home Bay and we helped her save over $60,000.00 on her California home sale! This is her story.
Jessica is no stranger to buying and selling real estate. In fact, she has purchased three homes and sold two. She had always worked with an agent in the past, but her experiences had left her struggling to sign the 3% commission check. That’s why, when she and her family prepared to sell their California home and move to Arizona, Jessica decided to do things a little differently.
Prior Real Estate Experiences:
Several years ago, Jessica was simultaneously buying and selling properties represented by two agents who belonged to the same brokerage. The agents were thrilled because both the purchase and the sale would help them boost their brokerage’s annual sales numbers. Unfortunately, their eagerness to close quickly distracted the agents from what they should have been focused on; Jessica and her family’s best interests.
Hoping her last experience was a fluke, Jessica enlisted the help of a buyer’s agent a couple years later. Things started out okay, but in time, the agent became unresponsive. It got so bad that by the time Jessica was heading into escrow, all correspondence was being routed through her agent’s assistant. The agent who would be receiving a 3% commission check was completely MIA.
Deciding to Sell Her Own Home:
Fed up and frustrated, Jessica said, “It just made me feel like the massive amounts of money involved in real estate just drives the wrong behavior.” So rather than risk putting her family through yet another negative experience, she decided it was time to take matters into her own hands. She got her real estate license and started looking for the right for sale by owner service to help her through the selling process.
