Less Hassle, More Money In Your Pocket, Peace Of Mind…That’s the Mastco Properties Way!

There is more to compare and think about when selling your Coos Bay Oregon house. We want you to make your decision on what’s right for you based on these 3 important factors:

  1. The true costs: Often times people look at the commissions for an agent as a necessary evil to sell your home. But, when you partner with the right Coos Bay real estate agents, that agent is the expert in your corner to protect your best interests. If a property takes longer to sell, a buyer backs out, you misstep because of a mistake in the contract that could cost you money, paying buyers agent commissions… all of those things add up to the true cost of selling your house.
  2. Your time commitment: Do you want to be (and have the time to be) heavily involved in all aspects of selling the house? From marketing to taking calls from buyers, to showing the house, doing your own open house, putting signs outside, to setting up escrow, and more? All so you can save 2 or 3% on the sale. Just calculate what your time and energy are worth and where you should best focus your time. If you’d rather not hassle with the details of your house sale, work with a trusted agent like Mastco Properties.
  3. The “experience factor”: There are hangups that can throw your closing off or cost you thousands. We help you avoid those and we deal with them for you.

** Both the Northwestern and the Stanford studies mentioned in the Money section confirm just that: “The use of a broker does lead to an accelerated sale. In that respect, brokers appear to add value,” the Stanford researchers declared. The Northwestern study found that it takes on average 20 days longer to sell a house on a FSBO site versus the MLS or an agent.
