What is a Flat
We list your
house on the Realtor’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for a "flat
We offer two methods
of listing your home.
What options do you
offer for listing my home?
We offer two options,
our popular $550 "Flat Fee" and our 1%.
What is a The $550
Flat Fee option?
The flat fee option is that you pay $550.00 up
front and then $1000.00 when your house sells (comes out of
closing proceeds). Included with the fee is: Full Representation, MLS
listing, market analysis, Realtor electronic lock-box and
a Realtor sign, contract negotiations, inspection negotiations,
internet exposure, no charges for additional changes to the MLS listing,
agent feedback, plus much more.
What is the 1%?
We will list your
house on the Multiple Listing Service for 1% commission paid to us (the
listing agent), when your house sells. The same services are provided for the
1% as the flat fee. The only difference is that this fee costs more and
is paid at closing.
How can I have the
option to sell and market my house while it is listed on the MLS?
I will ask you to sign
a listing agreement and an Addendum for Exclusive Agency. The Exclusive
Agency means you (the owner) may sell the Property procured through your own
How do I price my
Pricing is everything.
We have marketplace knowledge and provide a comparative market
analysis. If a property is priced correctly, it will sell. If it doesn't
sell, you have helped no one.
What do I owe you if I
sell my house myself?
If you picked option 1
you pay only $550.00 up front and $550.00 when the house closes. If you picked
option #2 you will pay only 1% commission when the house closes. If you find
the buyer you will save the 3% to the Buyer's Agent. On both options you
still retain the right to market and sell your own home while it is listed.
Regardless which option you pick it is still cheaper than the traditional 6 -
7% Realtor commissions and you retain the right to market and sell your
Why do some houses
sell and others stay on the market for a long time?
There are three
transaction killers 1) pricing 2) lack of marketing and 3) condition of the
property. Pricing is everything. If your home is priced to
high it won't sell. We provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis
to assist you on the best price for your home. Marketing is essential to
selling your home and the MLS provides you with the exposure you need. If
your home is not in great condition it must be priced accordingly.
Will you try to
sell my house while it is listed?
Yes, our aim is to
sell your home as well as list it. That way we get the buyers agent's
commission. The more people you have selling your home, the better off you
How soon after we list
our house will it take for it to be on the MLS?
Within two (2) days.
How do I know my house
will be listed on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?
Only licensed agents
that are members of the Multiple-listing organization are allowed to list
your home on the MLS. We are licensed. We will provide you with a copy
of the listing.
How long is my listing
It is good for six
months and you have the option to cancel at anytime.
What happens if I get
an offer on my house?
Included in the price
of the $550.00 flat fee is assistance with contract negotiations, counter
offers and help negotiating inspections repairs. You will want an agent
that has good negotiating skills in order to get you the best price possible
for your house. Being awarded in the "Top 100" in gross
sales requires good negotiating skills. The more negotiating we do
the better we become. We do more contract negotiations than most 6% realtors.
We do this everyday.
- Do you charge extra?
No matter how many
offers you receive we will help you negotiate them. This is included in our
fees for the length of the listing. Although, most discount brokers charge
extra for these services and some charge $500 or more per offer, this
included in our flat fee.
What Internet exposure
will my house have?
All homes listed on
the MLS have the same internet exposure. Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia
etc all download from the MLS.
How can you or your program
We know what
homeowners go through when they try to sell their homes. You may be in the
thinking about it stage. Our job is to provide a workable business solution
and follow it through. We also buy houses as well. In fact, we might be
interested in buying your house. We are experienced realtors and broker, that
has been doing contract negotiations more than the average agent.
Do you offer other
Yes, we offer a wide
variety of services and these services are offered even if you don't list
your home on the MLS and sell your house yourself. We can
provide assistance with contracts if you find the buyer, open houses and
flyers. If your home is vacant we do business with a service that provides
"home managers." If you are a Buyer we can
give REBATES (as long as the sale is over
$100,000) of the sales price. These are just a few of
the many services offered.
