Professional Photography versus Amateur-how big is the difference?

 Many flat fee home sellers have a difficult time deciding whether the cost of a professional photographer is worth it. We recently received photos from a seller that were not the best, to put it politely. Fortunately, the seller took our advice and spent the typical $150 for professional photography. The transformation was breathtaking. Since a picture is worth 1,000 words, we will share fewer words and just let the amateur versus professional pictures stand side by side and let you be the judge:

Just Received Our 100th Customer Review on Google Reviews

Over 100 flat fee MLS home seller reviews on google reviews

Thank you to all the customers who liked our service so much that they reviewed our service. We are proud to announce that we received our 100th review on Google. We have actually been reviewed by well over 100 flat fee home sellers previously, but we lost over 40 reviews when Yahoo decided to sell it review section to a paid review vendor. Unfortunately, that review vendor immediately deleted all the old yahoo reviews when they took over in 2016.


15 Years as a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business

Back in our 5th year of business (2002) we became concerned because we saw lots of sketchy flat fee MLS listing websites popping up. Dissatisfied customers of those websites often called us to ask for help and wondered who they could complain to. We noticed many of those websites getting bad grades by the Better Business Bureau.

Another Sale-Killing Flat Fee MLS Listing Tactic To Watch Out For: The Buyer Agent Commission Payment Hidden Loophole

Imagine if your boss at work asked you to sign a new employment agreement that said “Employee to receive $3,000 per month (or whatever your regular compensation is) via ABC Company, Inc. (your employer's name) but only $1.00 will be guaranteed. Company, Inc. does not guarantee payment of compensation.”

A new BuySelf seller writes "Thank you for telling it like it is"

I chose your flat fee listing service because I did A LOT of looking on [unnamed company F] and [unnamed company O] and while [company F] looked super fancy and gave me a lot of information, I emailed them with questions and never received a reply. I called [company O] with a question and sat on hold for A LONG time before I hung up. Being accredited by the BBB was what caught my attention and then exploring your website confirmed tips that I had read on informational websites on selling home by owner and that was making sure the sign says something about working with buyer agents.

The Costliest Mistakes Made by Flat Fee Home Sellers

I recently came across a flat fee listing from a well known, large flat fee MLS listing brokerage. This company probably has the fanciest looking website out there, and they market their service really well. If only they could market their MLS listings as well. This listing had so many mistakes on it. Now when I say mistakes I do not mean typos or showing 2 bedrooms instead of 4. The mistakes I saw were mistakes in agent friendliness—this listing would quickly convince any buyer agent to not show the property.

Another Great Media Article about Flat Fee MLS Listing versus traditional Realtors for home sales

This past Sunday there was an excellent Sunday Feature Article in the Real Estate Section of the Sunday Newspaper in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The article quoted BuySelf Realty Lead Broker Albert Hepp and was entitled "By owner or with broker: Home sellers have options." The author, Maryann Bouche, clearly did her research.
