What Kind Of Real Estate Scam Have You Fallen For Lately?
Most Flat Fee Brokers Are Just That, Flat - put in MLS - walk away!
Flat Fee Brokers often violate the Indiana Real Estate Licensing Laws by Refusing to provide the minimal services required by those laws.
How Can A 'National' or a 'Regional' FSBO Web Site work for your local home? If you ever list with one, your house may very well remain on their site forever ... they need the appearance of volume and success. That's your problem!
We have been LOCAL since 1973.
We are Licensed and Regulated by the State of Indiana.
Most FSBO sites are NOT licensed and are regulated by NOBODY!
Whatever ... Who Really Cares ... It's Only Your Time and Your MONEY ... WASTED!
The biggest problem for someone wanting to buy or sell a home is the availability of honest, straight forward and unbiased information from an easily accessed source that will address the many procedures and pitfalls of the home buying and selling process. This information needs to provide the basics from the point of determining that you may want to buy or sell a home and, perhaps, you may wish to buy or sell a home with an experienced Reduced Fee Menu of Services Realtor® or, possibly, you may even want to buy or sell a home yourself without the knowledge and resources of a qualified and experienced real estate agent or real estate consultant. This information needs to be thorough enough to provide the buyer or seller with the data and resources necessary to actually reach the ultimate goal of the completion of the transaction for the sale and/or purchase of a residential property.
Have you seen this scam: List your house For Sale By Owner with us for a low, low fee of just $ ???. You will receive a plastic sign, some forms, and a set of instructions on what to do next by UPS or the U.S. Mail. (It is a violation of the Board of Realtors Rules and Regulations if they send you forms approved only for use of Real Estate Brokers.) They then put it on a web site that attracts few viewers and give it a long ID number that no one can remember. How about the one where they say "for just $395.00 more you can list your home on the MLS" ... little good that does unless you also intend to pay the commission demanded by the buyer's real estate agent (many buyer agents just will NOT show your house). These cheap listing folks nickel, dime you to the point you would have been far better off listing with a Full Service, Full Commission Realtor. BUT, you think you got a deal! In reality, they get the Gold Mine and you get the SHAFT! If you fall for these types of 'throw away your money' ventures, we can help. Just call US when you get tired of the scam and decide to really sell your home! They talk about a website ... we talk about up to 52 websites ... you can find our websites! We have 43 years of experience in the real estate business AND IT SHOWS!
Are you a part of the FSBO See-Saw Factor? You know what a see-saw is, you played on one as a child. You are well aware that a heavy kid on one end will tip the seesaw in his favor .... every time. There is a See-Saw Factor in Real Estate, the person with the most 'smarts' wins! Is the playing field tipped your way, is the playing field level, is the playing field tipped the other way? The See-Saw Factor can cost you a lot of money ... and it will be YOUR FAULT for not seeking out a knowledgeable, experienced real estate broker to tip the See-Saw your way. But, you say, 'it won't happen to me'. Maybe not. But, it probably will! And you won't even know it until it's too late. Enjoy your decision, whatever it may be ... you are doing it your way.
We are an 'EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO SELL' Company ... We personally believe that 'EXCLUSIVE AGENCY' is not at all proper in today's business world as it offers too many opportunities for dishonesty and a disregard for ethics to flourish. Can you say 'lawsuit'? We, however, know very well how to protect our Company, our agents and our clients and customers from dishonest folks by using the INDIANA REAL ESTATE LICENSING LAWS and the CRIMINAL FRAUD STATUTES!
Our Company subscribes to and follows THE RULES AND REGULATIONS of the INDIANA REAL ESTATE COMMISSION and the NATIONAL ASSOICATION OF REALTORS. We frown on companies and individuals that attempt to circumvent the law for their own personal benefit (under the guise of 'Competition'). YOU WILL LOSE!
You've heard the complaints and the excuses: he said, she said ... I didn't know ... but they guaranteed ... well, I thought they guaranteed ... all I wanted to do was save some money ... nobody told me it was going to cost this much ... I think that CHEAP should work better than this ... what is a SCAM anyway ... it's not MY FAULT ... I've never heard of the Better Business Bureau ... I have the best house in the world, but nobody else thinks so ... I thought the builder was my friend ... my agent is very nice but nothing is happening ... I thought my agent was experienced ... my agent won't return my calls anymore ... I don't even know who my agent is ... they said they would do this or that, but I don't have it in writing and they are doing absolutely nothing ... I can't find the information I need anywhere. Beware of "in sight, it must always be right" ... it just 'ain't necessarily so'. Ask us about the impact of "Lemmings" on your real estate expectations! It's your hard earned money going down the drain!
