Ever wonder why real estate fees have remained consistently high for so long? Independent studies show that the North American real estate industry is one of the most costly and inefficient in the world. Estimates are that real estate brokerage commissions in the U.S. are inflated by as much as $30 billion dollars annually!
Most baffling is the fact that real estate agents now make less money on average than ever before. Because the barriers to entry for Realtors®, (now over 1 million strong), are so low, they are forced to spend most of their time competing with one another for new business rather than spending their time and efforts selling your property. Even discount real estate companies charging lower fees still use the same labor and man-hour intensive methods that require that real estate agents spend the majority of their time on non-income producing activities in order to compete in the over-crowded marketplace.U.S. commission rates are about 1.5 to 2.5 percentage points above the (world) average.
In spite of changing market trends and technological advances, the real estate industry remains rooted in inefficient practices that we're developed over 75 years ago. The traditional model not only costs consumers too much, it wastes tons of valuable resources each year with it's reliance on large cadre's of agents, multiple 'bricks and mortar' office footprints and numerous taxi-like house tours (not to mention the paper and consumable usage to support a still largely paper based transaction process).
The reality of the real estate industry today is that most Americans are now paying more for less service while the value of the services has dramatically declined. So, while real estate fees have continued to rise, less and less is being done for you, the customer, to actually assist you with your transaction. Yet real estate agents are working more hours and competing with one another harder just to stay in business. Unfortunately, traditional real estate brokerage has become a 'no-win' situation for ALL of the players - buyers, sellers, and even the professionals themselves.The reality of the real estate brokerage industry today is that most Americans are now paying more money for less service while the value of that service has dropped dramatically.
While it may have once seemed appropriate to pay 6% or more to sell your home, today's market presents a new set of realities and possibilities. Consumers, once at the mercy of traditional real estate agents, are now demanding more thoughtful, common-sense choices in real estate services and fees.
