What is “Do-it-yourself” real estate?

August 8, 2012 1 comment

During and after the real estate craze in the mid 2000s, value of the traditional real estate sales model has been questioned. This questioning introduced a new type of real estate sales model where homeowners or homebuyers can get more closely involved in the transaction process and in turn, be rewarded mostly by earning or saving significant funds.

If you are reading this, quite possibly you are interested in this way.

“Do-It-Yourself” (DIY) sales has been around for a while but hasn’t been well publicized, reasons that go beyond the purpose of this blog. This blog contributes to leading the reversal of this trend.

DIY real estate services provide programs to both buyers and sellers of real estate in the form of these concepts

  1. Listing on MLS for a Flat Fee (For sellers)
  2. Rebate back when purchasing a home. (For buyers)
  3. Session based consulting work (For sellers and buyers)

These programs provide monetary incentive for sellers or buyers if there a commitment to spend the time and leg work to perform property showings and viewings. Only when a sales transaction needs to be initiated and guided, will an agent be of assistance.
