About time someone made rental listings available online. I like that you can sort and filter by area/amount of bedrooms, etc.


Seems like they charge less than printed listings cost.

Me too.

I still can't figure out why people are paying realtors tens of thousands of dollars (4-6% on selling prices) for homes in Lakewood. The same people calling the realtors could just do a search. If there was a better system, both the buyers and sellers would be saving money.

No one would save any money by leaving out realtors.

They deduct their fee from the sale price.

Have you ever heard anyone give a discount for not using a realtor?

And btw, once one side has a realtor, there's no extra expense for the other side to bring realtor. They split the fee. Therefore there would also be no way for the seller to offer a discount in that case.

The sale prices would go down in the long run. Initially there would be an incentive for the buyers to save the money by purchasing a home without a realtor since the same/similar home with realtors would be approximately an extra $25,000 for a $600,000 home. Even if it doesn't go down the full 4% and the price goes down a little to readjust for the lack of commissions; if the buyer saves (at most) 2% and the seller saves the other 2% that they would have been giving the realtor then everyone is still saving.

Also, I know this is the Lakewood thread, but in Jackson and Toms River the realtors take 6%, so on a million dollar house they are making a $60,000 commission. Just think about how much work the average person has to do to make $60,000. That's a lot of money; it's coming off the selling price. The buyers and sellers are paying for it.

Have you ever seen a seller offer a discount in the event that there was no broker involved?

I agree that it's crazy, but the 60k isn't going to one person. It's being split between the two agents, and then they split it with their broker.
