Why I Chose Listed Realty
When I started my career as a licensed real estate agent I wanted to find a brokerage that had progressive ideas. Since I came from a real estate photography and videography background, I was contacted by a number of larger brokerages who asked me to join their companies. I did go and talk to a number of them, and as good as they all appeared to be, the something that struck me was that everyone was saying the exact same thing (but using different words). Each broker that I spoke to said they were unique but no one could tell me anything specific that made them different , apart from their name, or that they were either part of a big franchise or they were a small independent brokerage (both of which have pros and cons). When it came to the services that were on offer to their customers, there really was no recognizable difference.
Before joining LISTED Realty, I worked for a couple of other brokers, but I was never completely happy because I really was always a small fish in very large ponds struggling to be noticed among the bigger fish who were swimming with me. I decided I needed to make change then came across LISTED Realty and their model of selling homes for flat-fee commissions, and decided to find out more about the model. While doing my research I spoke to a number of agents, all of who tried to steer me away from this model – not because it was inferior and offered less service to the home sellers, but because it meant I would earn less commission for each sale that I made. I know this fact would probably steer a lot of agents away from wanting to offer it, but I remember when I was growing up my dad always used to tell me that when I start working, my priority should always be about doing something that I love, and always doing the best job that I possibly can. In other words, I should always take pride in what I do. He always stressed that money should never be the number 1 priority for me because if I only focused on the money, then I would probably lose focus on the enjoyment of the job and giving it my best effort.
After speaking to the broker at LISTED Realty, I quickly found out that her goals for the brokerage were completely in line with my own, and her passion was not about earning as much money as possible, but instead on growing a brokerage that is trusted and known for offering a quality service at a fair price. Since being with LISTED Realty I have sold a number of homes for my clients, literally saving them thousands of dollars every time. The satisfaction that I get when I sell a home and show my clients how much money they have saved in commissions is immeasurable, and something I plan on continuing to do for a long time.

Why a East Naples Flat-Fee MLS Broker May Be a Better Option For You
When offering a home, it’s essential to know the various ways that you can conserve money on your commission. For example, some representatives charge flat costs, while others require sellers to pay them a percentage commissions based off of just how much they offer their home for. So which is the better option for you?
What Does A Seller’s Agent Do To Earn Their Commission?
There are many reasons dealing with a representative might be a much better alternative than trying to handle the sale of your home yourself. Representatives have access and insight into what it takes to efficiently market a house. When it concerns setting the sales price of your house it’s important to price it properly if you wish to reduce the number of days that it remains unsold. Agents use what is known as a comparative market analysis (CMA) uses different kinds of local information to determine various prices that your home may sell for, depending upon whether you are trying to find a quick sale, or are prepared to wait it out in order get top dollar. In addition, when setting costs on their own, property owners tend to utilize psychological info which really has no bearing on what a home purchaser is willing to pay, or what a home loan institution wants to provide on such a house. Property agents know this and price the homes appropriately.
The second reason that you need to consider working with a real estate agent is because they will negotiate the sale in your place. Negotiation can be made complex, and it’s important that you have somebody who has experience in these kinds of negotiations on your side. It’s highly most likely that a lot of purchasers will be working with an experience representative (because there is no charge for them to have this advantage), and a good representative is going to make use of every weakness that you may have when it pertains to negotiating in order to get a much better deal for their client.
Third, agents carry Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance. The intricacies of a realty deal and the exacting details can be a breeding ground for errors. These are often small or unintended but still liable to trigger legal proceedings if the purchaser is not pleased with any issue found after the sale of the house has actually been completed. E&O Insurance secures versus any prospective liability from mistakes dedicated in your place throughout the sales procedure and if they occur to be significant then E&O Insurance will cover the legal costs.
What Is An Agents Cost When It Comes To Selling A Home?
Good representatives understand how to successfully market a home in all sort of market conditions. The truth is innovation is making the online home selling process much easier and even more efficient. Technology enables representatives to note a house in less time, with less manual labor required on their part. For the majority of representatives this has been not reflected in the amount that they charge their sellers for listing their houses. Nevertheless, flat-fee brokers do acknowledge this by charging a lower quantity than would be paid when compared to be charged 2-3% of a home’s prices as commission.
Regardless of whether a commission is being charged as a percentage or a flat-fee, the same amount of effort need to be made to market a house so that it offers rapidly and at the best rate possible. In an ideal world this would be a truth, but unfortunately it does not appear to be the case. If you speak with 5 different agents regarding the sales of your home, you will most likely get 5 various explanations on exactly what they will do to help you get your house offered. Some agents do as little as taking the photos of the house, in addition to the details of the house, and put them onto the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database, and just await buying representatives to bring prospective buyers to see the home. It worsens when some agents pick to forego the expenses of professional photography to ensure the house exists in addition to possible online, and will take photographs with their mobile phones and utilize those. So their costs would be very little.
Then you have the more professional agents who will invest their own money (or their brokers’ cash) to not just have expert photos, but likewise video, 3D virtual tours, together with paper and online advertising (i.e. they are in fact making an effort to try and find a purchaser in addition to selling a house). With these representatives the expenses for marketing a home will be hundreds, and depending upon the location, perhaps even countless dollars. So the choice on exactly how much an agent wants to spend on marketing dollars truly will depend on the prospective return on their investment when the house eventually offers. Therefore, a representative who is going to earn 3% commission, is probably more likely to invest more cash than a representative who is just going to make 2%.
So with this being said, you might ask with that logic, won’t a percentage based agent invest more cash on marketing than a flat-fee commissioned agent? A great deal of time that is likely to be the case, and you will find flat-fee brokers out there who will freely market that they not do anything more than add your home details and photographs that you need to provide into the MLS. Then you have full-service flat-fee brokers like LISTED Realty in Fort Myers who provide the specific very same services that you would expect from a percentage based broker. As an agent with LISTED Realty, I supply expert photography, expert videography, a 3D virtual trip and online marketing for all of my listings no matter how much your home is going to be cost, because I believe it’s my task to do whatever in my power to assist get a home offered quickly and efficiently. How much commission I earn would not be a driving element for my marketing efforts.
So, Which Is The Best Option– A Percentage Based Broker Or A Flat-Fee Broker?
Clearly any home seller, when they pick an agent to help them offer their houses is efficiency and value. There is no point in cutting the amount that you will pay in commission if you pick a representative who can’t offer your house and it rests on the markets for months and months, and you find yourself continuing to pay a home mortgages, insurance coverages, taxes, etc, which work out to be more than the extra commission you would have paid to a much more efficient representative who could offer your house quicker. Preferably, you would have the very best of both worlds, where you can have the complete suite of sales, marketing and assistance services of your representative and their broker, but paying as little in agents’ commission as you can.
When you speak to potential representatives that you may want to work with, do not only ask them for specifics on how they’re going to market the house for you, and what additional administrative assistance is being used, also inquire for something called a Seller’s Net Sheet, which gives a complete breakdown of all the expenses connected with offering a particular home to calculate just how much the seller can anticipate to bank when their home has been offered. A Seller’s Net Sheet will include all of the agents’ commissions among the other costs.
Once you have all of the details above, then you need to be able to make a notified choice on which choice is best for you.
