A new real estate company is providing sellers with the choice to act as their own salesperson with the benefit of access to services once only offered to realtors.

“Many home owners feel they are qualified to handle the task of selling their own home and over the years many have tried. In the end, they usually list with a licensed realtor to get the marketing benefits of the MLS.  Now, for these sellers the good news is with a mere posting they are able to showcase their property on the MLS” said JNL Lynch owner/broker of Okanagan Sun Realty. “The home seller chooses the realtor services they wish to pay for. The mere posting listing is not meant to eliminate the full services listing with its’ higher fees but merely to offer an alternative that will appeal to some sellers.”

Lynch, a realtor since 1974, believes a paramount concern of home sellers is the paying of commission to sell their properties.

JNL Lynch will be offering home sellers a choice as to what services they wish to contract for including a special program for sale by owners called a mere posting. This mere posting puts your home on Multiple Listing Service for a flat fee of $1,500, including HST, and allows you to act as your own salesperson.

“Having owned real estate companies in the past we feel our little boutique type operation will serve the public in a unique way. Our overhead is low so we are able to be more flexible with our commission structure,” said Lynch.
