At RealSmart Properties LLC, our innovative Flat Fee MLS®®® Listings (aka: flat rate or limited service) are saving our Sellers thousands of dollars in commissions and our full service buyer representation helps our clients find the right home at the right price.
Did you know that in a typical real estate transaction, a seller pays a 6% commission that is split equally between 2 separate parties, the listing broker and the selling broker? In most cases a sellers Realtor® (listing broker) enters the property into the Realtor®'s Multiple Listing Service (MLS®®®) and a buyers Realtor® (selling broker) searches this exclusive database and brings the buyer. In fact, MLS®®® and Realtor®.com market exposure is responsible for over 80% of all properties sold in todays market.
Upon the sale of the average $200,000 house, a seller will be paying a $12,000 commission which will be split equally between both brokers, $6,000 to the listing broker and $6,000 to the selling broker. Ouch!!!
With our innovative $289 Flat Fee MLS®®® listing, the same property could sell just as fast while our RealSmart seller would save around $5700 on the commission.
How? The truth is, as long as a seller offers a competitive commission, selling brokers will bring their clients to see the property. These showings result in sales.
We simply charge a low up-front fee that provides the exact same MLS®®® and Realtor®.com marketing and exposure while eliminating the listing brokers portion of the sales commission.
Find out why savvy real estate owners, investors and builders are turning to this innovative way for selling their properties and keeping their hard earned equity.
