For an extra $350, REMS will place the seller's property on its own list. Little said he's not interested in tapping the market of people who want real estate brokers to sell their homes for them. He's only interested in helping the people who want to sell their own homes, but don't know how. He said the maximum fee would be $700 if the seller not only wants advice, but also potential buyers steered his way. But, he added, the $700 fee is still cheaper than a 7 per cent commission or $3,500 on a $50,-000 house. Come all the way to the good life. NO LANf) IF ASf NO f?f CRf-ATK , 1950 Palm City Road.

The computer provides the owner-seller with the deposit he can hope to get, the closing costs and the cash needed by the buyer at closing to acquire the property. The types of financing the computer works with include FHA, VA, 80 to 90 per cent financing, mortgage assumption and cash. "Generally, you'll not get this type of information from a broker and if you do it takes him about two hours to compute one type of financing," Little said. With the computer it takes only 15 minutes to work up as many as three estimates based on three types of financing data. REMS also provides the do-it-yourself seller with a large, aluminum red on white "For sale by owner" sign complete with telephone number, plus a limited number of brochures describing the property. A picture of the property is printed on the brochure.

"I've heard a lot of people complain that real estate commissions are so high and real estate agents don't do enough to earn them," he said. "But these same people don't really know how to go about selling their own home." So Little and his partner, William W. Cochrane, decided that for a $350 fee they will show people how to sell their own home and save money. The two men recently opened their business, Real Estate Marketing Services Inc., (REMS), at 1825 Forest Hill Blvd. It's the first do-it-yourself real estate counseling service in the area, although it's patterned after one started 13 years ago in the North. REMS will provide sellers with advice on how to prepare a house for sale, how to advertise it, where to go to find financing, title and hazard insurance and provide weekly consultations.
