One of the ways that you could possibly increase the amount of money that you get out of selling your home is by offering to do a Realtor referral.
This means that you will help your Realtor to get new business and for each person that she talks to that lists their house for sale or purchases a home from the Realtor referral that you gave can result in cash for you. Now this is not the only way in which Realtor referrals are used as real estate agents have a few other options as well. Another way that you might be able to increase your money through referrals is by using a referral service.
The way that this type of Realtor referral works is that the referral company will offer you savings by only keeping a small portion of the money that the real estate agent gives them for a referral and in the end you can actually put this money towards the costs of selling or buying a home. This is because the referral company will pay you part of the money that they are being paid for you to be willing to tell the Realtor that you found them through the referral company.
The good way to be able to take advantage of a Realtor referral in order to guarantee that you save money is by being a well informed consumer. You will have to ask that you are being connected with a Realtor that is willing to give you closing credits for shopping for a home with him or her. This means that you will have additional cash taken off of the amount of money that you would need for closing costs.
Plus you do not have to worry about anything with a Realtor referral because it is all completely free. It is something that is available for you as a consumer since the Realtor can legally pay any fee that they want out of their commission. This can really add up in savings for you and help you to have the best experience when purchasing or selling a home.
