This real estate agency pays you to take care of the sale of your house | Herald Community Newspapers

(News USA) – A real estate agency that pays you for the honor of taking care of the sale of your house?

It’s true – and maybe just the latest sign of the real estate market’s searing heat.

In fact, under the innovative homeowner benefits program, you don’t even have to be ready to sell now – or even in the near future – to immediately receive a check that’s typically between $800 and $3,000. You just have to accept that MV Realty, which launched the program in late 2018 and continues to expand it across the country, will broker the sale for you if and when you’re ready.

“It’s a win-win situation,” says Amanda Zachman, the founder of MV Realty, which has the highest rating of 5.0 on real estate website Zillow.com. “The owner gets money now and continued access to a high-quality real estate agency that believes real estate is more than a one-time transaction. And we get a future client.”

Plot? Then, before we even get into the details, consider this month’s headline from Fortune.com that should warm the hearts of every potential home seller: “It’s the Mother Market of All Sellers.”

This means that the two key factors that made 2021 a banner year, with cities like Miami seeing real estate prices soar by as much as 32.5%, both remain in play:

* A tight inventory.

* Demand is so rampant — including from cash-paying investors — that, as CNBC reported, “homes are selling an average of 10 days faster than a year ago” while everything what you heard about was people fleeing big cities because of COVID.

“On top of all that,” Zachman notes, “what we’re seeing now is a lot of buyers looking to lock in still relatively low mortgage rates in anticipation of the Federal Reserve raising interest rates to several occasions this year”.

Based in Delray Beach, Florida, MV Realty now offers the Homeowner Benefits Program through its Authorized Agents in 33 states (Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin).

What makes the program so great is that homeowners can keep the brokerage money, which is based on the appraised value of their home, even if they never choose to sell.

It’s money that can be used for whatever they want. Home renovations. Well deserved vacation. One owner was able to throw his 5-year-old’s dream birthday party at Disneyworld.

Meanwhile, homeowners benefit from the expertise of a top-notch real estate broker, including insights provided on everything from current market trends to a personalized home analysis.

What if they choose to sell? That’s when the full-service MV Realty really kicks into action using its proprietary, highly structured home listing and valuation process. And – here’s the key – maximizing the marketability of said house by using its multiple resources to promote it nationally and internationally with professionally shot photography. A sale earns the brokerage the competitive local commission rate.

“With the market as it is, now is one of the best times to sell,” says Zachman
