Kitchener, Ontario (PRWEB) April 16, 2004
Realestatemate.com, an upstart Real Estate marketing website based out of Kitchener, Ontario, Canada issued a challenge to the traditional real estate industry today. ÂStop charging sky high commission fees to home sellers that inevitably contribute to driving up home pricesÂ said company Founder Richard Embro-Pantalony. He backs up his statement by pointing out that Realtors lead homeowners to believe they work so hard to market a home when in reality in an active market itÂs pretty simple but the buying and selling public believes they have no alternative but traditional real estate services.
ÂHouse prices have increased so dramatically that many realtors can earn significant income selling only a few homes a year! In a hot market like many areas of North America have experienced the past 5 or 6 years, sellers can save 5 or 6 percent on the sale price of their home by selling it themselves, it simply isnÂt that difficult to do and the savings are dramatic!Â said Richard.
Richard decided to do something to help sellers and buyers connect with no inconvenience to either party by developing Realestatemate.com, an Internet streaming media company devoted to providing as much information as possible to potential buyers so they can make their own educated home buying decision. ÂWe provide motion video walk through tours, 3-4 minutes in length accompanied by an audio description along with detailed property information and digital photo collages. This means only pre-qualified buyers will call the seller and they donÂt have complete strangers touring their home every time an agent calls or open houses are scheduled and your agent kicks you out of your home for 3 hours. ItÂs disruptive for people at a stressful time in their livesÂ Richard added ÂWhen you list your home with an agent, you give up control of your life as you knew it until your home sells, we give the seller their control backÂ
Realestatemate.com is a very informative online Real Estate portal with industry news articles, buying and selling answers and solutions for all aspects of the transaction, everything you need to buy and sell your own real estate. ÂThe traditional MLS real estate industry is imploding as many realtors are discounting their services to 2% or 3% for an MLS exposed listing and charge the seller $300-$600 for the privilege. ItÂs still to much to charge!Â
They continue to depend on their monopoly to convince sellers they are worth their high fees. Home-buyers want information and the Internet is a great medium for this. Most agents provide only limited information in their advertising trying to locate buyers they can work with and not necessarily for the same home they are advertising. How is that working for the seller?
Realestatemate.com makes it easy for people to sell there own home by providing a visual for home-buyers they otherwise only get touring the home with an agent. Watching a television-like streaming video tour with a descriptive narration of property details means the potential home-buyer is virtually seeing the home for the 2nd time when they call the seller directly for an appointment. Buyer and seller negotiations can occur spontaneously at this time.
ÂOur system works. ItÂs inexpensive and good quality. Buyers and sellers love the convenience not to mention the huge savings for both parties.Â Real estate agents were necessary years ago because of their market knowledge but in the information age, everything the buyer and seller needs, including home evaluation services and instant mortgage qualification can be found on the Internet. Why pay 6% on the total sale of your home when it has become so simple to do it yourself?
