Why List Through A Flat Fee Broker?
87% of buyers purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker—a share that has steadily increased from 69 percent in 2001. Buyers agents often will not show FSBO Owner listings due to reduced commissions. By Listing thru a Flat Fee Broker and offering a competitive buyers agency commission, properties sell for an average of 17% more. The avg sales time of a home listed thru a Broker is 3 weeks according to Realtor.com.
How Does Flat Fee Listing Works?
Listing on the MLS for a flat fee is the exact same thing as listing with a 6% REALTOR®. You are simply paying for ONLY the services you need. We are REALTORS® and a BROKER. Your listing looks exactly the same as all other listings. You can sell your property to someone not represented by an agent and NOT pay a buyer agent commission, however if an agent brings a buyer, that agent will need to be paid a commission. Since 87% of buyers have a buyers agent working for them, a FSBO is elminiating most of their customers if they choose NOT to pay a buyer fee. We recommend 2-2.5% depending on the condition and price of the home. This is perfect for For Sale By Owners and all other property owners.

Other flat fee services ONLY list homes. Our agents maintain lists of active buyers at all times, enabling us to sell your property in the least amount of time possible.
How Do I Know What People Think Of My Home?
All Full Service clients will receive feedback via our automated systems. Whan a buyer or agent looks at your property, thwy will be asked to fill out a “Guest Card”, we forward the results of these responses directly to you as the seller. These cards contain invaluable information. Its often difficult for a property owner to see their home as a stranger would. Guest cards give a direct, honest assessment of what the market opinion is of your home.
What Is Your Success Rate?
We tell all our clients “The market sets the sales price of your home”. Sellers can set the asking price, but the market will determine what it’s truly worth. Some sell for over asking, others for less. The 3 keys to selling a home are Location, Condition, and Price. Only 1 of those can easily be changed. If you list your home too high, it will most likely not sell. We pride ourselves on honest feedback, and all of our services come with free price changes. If your home been on the market for 30 days with no offers? You can adjust the price at any time to bring it more in line with what the market tells you. Surveys show better than 92% of all homes sell through the MLS (Multiple listing service), Realtor.com and the other major sites. There is little else even a top producing, traditional agent can do to sell your home once their secretary inputs your listing. Additionally, most offers come from buyer’s agents. So, using a traditional agent to sell simply wastes your hard earned equity. Flat Fee MLS listing direct with us is simply the smart way to go.
