What are the Pros & Cons of Listing with a Full-Service Real Estate Agent?

Pros: A full-service broker can handle all the aspects of selling a home. The typical home selling process includes marketing, negotiating transaction details on the seller's behalf, and handling all the paperwork associated with the home's sale.


Cons: The obvious drawback to using a full-fee, full-service real estate broker is that the seller must pay a high commission based on the price of the house. However, with the increasing trend of discount and flat fee brokers, this option is becoming more promising. On the other hand, because there are varying levels of experience and expertise among agents, the seller should screen them carefully to make sure they get the best agent for the money.
