3 Huge, Invisible Costs Of Selling With A Real Estate Agent, Which Will Cost You Far More Than Any Commissions And Marketing Fees

Real Estate hidden costs

Most people believe that there are only two costs in using a real estate agent – their commission and marketing fees.

What they don’t see are the three other invisible costs – and they are NOT what you’d think.

These costs are much higher than any commission and marketing fees that you’ll ever pay.

The reason why many sellers are happy with the result they achieve is because they have absolutely no idea how they could have done MUCH better.

Despite the scientific evidence and simple logic, you won’t hear about the three invisible costs from any real estate agent.

You will discover them below, but please read them carefully.  Most people never learn or think about these three invisible costs.  

Less than 1% of the savviest home sellers know what you are about to read.

By the way, none of this is a criticism of any real estate agent, only the system in which they operate.

As Seen On:

The 3 Invisible And Exorbitant Costs Of Selling With A Real Estate Agent

Do you think it matters to a real estate agent whether they make $20,000 or $21,000 in commission? – Especially, if they can pocket the $20,000 sooner?

Do you believe that an agent will care more about getting $1,000 less in commission, than you about selling for $40,000 less?

It only costs an agent $1,000 to undersell your home by $40,000 at a commission rate of 2.5%.

It is very important that you understand this, so please let this sink in before you read on.

Now, why would any agent undersell your home or convince you to accept a lower price?

Simple.  A lower price can secure a quicker sale, allowing the agent to pocket their commission sooner, so they can move onto the next property.

They would much rather make another $20,000 from the next property than an extra $1,000 from yours.

For this reason the real incentive real estate agents have is to sell quickly at whatever price achieves a quick sale.

This has been proven by several independent scientific studies, one of which was conducted by economists Steven Levitt and Chad Syverson and made famous by the best selling book Freakonomics.

A percentage based commission encourages real estate agents to undersell your home to achieve a quick sale.

This alone can cost you tens of thousands of dollars and is the first invisible cost, which is related to the second invisible cost…

Why Should You Care?...

The combination of these three invisible costs can add up to many tens of thousands of dollars.
They will make it impossible for you to achieve the best result using a real estate agent.
Unfortunately, selling privately is no better.
Most private sale campaigns are very unprofessional and private sellers believe that all they need to do is simply ‘put an ad up’.
The owner of one of Australia’s first private selling platforms told me that only about 30% of his private seller clients succeed.
70% of them fail or end up with a real estate agent.
Those who do sell, often sell for much less than what they should have.
This is because they have no idea of the formula behind achieving the best result.
For this reason, they often undersell their home by far more than what they end up ‘saving’ in commissions.
So if selling with an agent AND privately will lose you money, then what is the alternative?…

Who Am I?

My name is David Kaity and I’m a Property Marketing Strategist and author.

About 10 years ago, I developed a method of marketing homes, called the 5P’s To Profit Method.

I can guarantee that you have not heard of this method or how it works.

It helps home sellers achieve record sale prices by avoiding the three invisible costs associated with all real estate agents.

It does this while also avoiding the risks of an unprofessional private sale.

As a result, it allows vendors to easily pocket tens of thousands of dollars more from the sale of their home.

As you will see in the case studies further down, this method has achieved amazing results for all kinds of people, with all sorts of properties, all across Australia.

Unfortunately however, about 40% of home sellers are not suited for the 5 P’s To Profit Method.

Common Questions About The 5 P’s To Profit Method

Do I have to sell my own home? – NO

Does this involve expensive renovations? – NO
Do I have to negotiate with buyers? – NO
Do I have to arrange the contract of sale? – NO
Do I have to pay you anything up front? – NO
Am I locked in to any contract? – NO

The 5 P’s To Profit Method May Be For You If…

You worry about selling your home for less then you should.
You find it difficult to trust real estate agents, because you feel like they say just about anything to sign you up.
You believe that real estate commissions are too high, but selling privately is unprofessional and risky.
You need to maximise the money from your sale to boost your retirement savings or upgrade to a better home.

Remarkable Results

The 5 P’s To Profit Method is the only one of its kind in Australia that helps you pocket tens of thousands of extra dollars from the sale of your home.

You are more than welcome to speak with people I have helped in the past to ask about their experience.

Since I’ve been using the 5 P’s To Profit Method to help others, the results have been so amazing that I’ve been able to remove the risks involved with selling a home.

This is the only method where you are not locked into a contract and are free to leave at any time, with no obligation to pay me a cent, if you are unhappy for any reason.

Below are just three examples and ordinary case studies of the everyday results I help people achieve.

You will notice that these case studies date back to before the current crazy market conditions.

Today’s results are even better, but they are not typical of the long term average, which is why I haven’t used them.
