What are the options if you are looking to sell their property?
Traditional Real Estate Agent route has been the norm on the past. . Expensive and slow
Specialized FSBO sites by-passing real estate agents- Online - less expensive but still slow
Property auction - fast sale but price not guaranteed to reach reserve, you still have to pay auction fees even if you don't sell.
Sell to investors who specializes in purchasing property for cash – selling below market value but VERY fast
FSBO private house sale - a cheap option but doing it alone may not get you what you are looking for.
So, how do you go about selling your house privately as a FSBO and still get the advantages from an experienced real estate agent and all the systems in place to help you sell it FAST and for the most money?
This might sound like a scary alternative but with the birth of the Internet it really is a viable alternative that has become very apparent now. .
OUR BETA PROGRAM
My name is Fernando Herboso and I'm the principal broker owner for Herboso & Associates a real estate company licensed in Maryland and Virginia.
My company specializes in listings and has a proven system that once a property is introduced . . . it sells because my system works!
There is an elephant in the middle of all brokerages offices that no one seems to be talking about. .
We've suffered the biggest correction in real estate prices since the 1930's great depression. .
If you are a Maryland or Virginia homeowner, I can just guess a 30% reduction on your property since the heights of 2005 . . I don't even need to know your address.. .
The average loss for homeowner's in MD and VA is 30 % unless you are lucky enough to be inside those pockets where real estate prices have somehow resisted the loss of value. .at least not at the same pace.
As a real estate broker I wonder . . . then WHY HAVEN'T WE DROPPED OUR COMISSION RATES FROM THE NORMAL 5% to 6% CHARGES TO HELP HOMEOWNERS?
The fair thing to do is to reduce our rates by 30%
The sad true is that most agents from the most popular offices don't even control what they can charge you to sell your property, their broker does!
This is our BETA PROGRAM
We will HELP YOU sell your home by putting your property into our 10 STEP SYSTEM for just $395.00*
Our 10 STEP SYSTEM will give you accesses to a complete evaluation of your property and a suggested price based on comparables and past sales. The same one we use for all our regular sales.
Depending on how quickly you wish to sell should influence how much above or below market value you are willing to set your price at.

SHOWINGS. Any time a real estate agent wants to bring a possible buyer to your property, you will be notified and the showings will be arranged by professionals. .they will also take care of the feedback for you. They will obtain a feedback and send it directly to you.
