Pennywise. Pound Foolish. No Multiple Offers?

Everyone knows that the Belleville area real estate market is very busy! We know multiple offers are the norm.

Homes sell for asking or more on a regular basis. In many cases much more!

Remember! When there are 10 offers, only one buyer wins. That leaves 9 families looking for home.

Optimizing exposure to the market, to every potential buyer ensures Sellers are getting the best deal possible.

Multiple offers equals better results and experienced Realtors® know how to manage this complex process to your advantage. In many cases, your net results, even after paying our professional fees, will surpass that of going alone.

Don’t be fooled by “I saved $$$$ in commissions” marketing.These savings are calculated on the sale price which could be far below real market value.

The truth is what you “save” on commission could cost you real $$$$!
