Why I Chose Listed Realty
When I became a licensed real estate agent I wanted to join a broker that had modern ideas. Coming from a real estate photography and videography background, I was contacted by a several larger brokerages that asked me to join their companies. I did go and speak with a number of them, and as good as they all appeared to be, the the main thing that struck me was that everyone was saying the same thing (but using different words). Each broker that I spoke to said they were unique but no one could explain anything specific that made them different , other than their name, or that they were part of a large franchise or they were a small independent brokerage (both of which have pros and cons). When it came down to the services that were on offer to their customers, there really was no identifiable 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 had been there a lot longer. I decided I needed to make change then happened upon LISTED Realty with 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 to the seller, but because it meant I would earn less commission. Obviously 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 possible. 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 focused on the first two things, money would eventually come, but if I focused on money first, it didn’t mean the other two would follow.
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 primary objective was not about earning as much money as possible, but instead on growing a brokerage with a reputation for being trustworthy and offering a high-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.

Comparing Percentage Fee Brokers Against Flat-Fee Brokers
When offering a house, it’s crucial to understand the different manner ins which you can save money on your commission. For instance, some agents charge flat fees, 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 much 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 attempting to manage the sale of your home yourself. Agents have access and insight into what it requires to successfully market a home. When it pertains to setting the prices of your home it’s important to price it correctly if you want to minimize the variety of days that it remains unsold. Agents use what is called a comparative market analysis (CMA) utilizes various kinds of local data to figure out various prices that your home might sell for, depending on whether you are looking for a fast sale, or are prepared to wait it out in order get top dollar. In addition, when setting costs by themselves, property owners tend to utilize psychological information which really has no bearing on what a house buyer is willing to pay, or what a home mortgage institution wants to provide on such a home. Realty agents know this and price the homes appropriately.
The 2nd reason why you ought to think about dealing with a realty agent is due to the fact that they will work out the sale in your place. Settlement can be complicated, and it’s crucial that you have somebody who has experience in these types of settlements in your corner. It’s extremely most likely that a lot of purchasers will be dealing with an experience agent (since there is no cost for them to have this benefit), and a great representative is going to make use of every weak point that you may have when it comes to working out in order to get a much better offer for their client.
Third, representatives bring Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance coverage. The complexities of a realty transaction and the exacting details can be a breeding ground for mistakes. These are frequently small or unintentional but still liable to trigger legal procedures if the buyer is not satisfied with any issue discovered after the sale of the home has been finished. E&O Insurance secures against any potential liability from mistakes dedicated on your behalf during the sales procedure and if they happen to be major then E&O Insurance will cover the legal expenses.
What Is An Agents Cost When It Comes To Selling A Home?
Great agents understand how to efficiently market a home in all sort of market conditions. The truth is technology is making the online house selling procedure a lot easier and much more efficient. Technology allows agents to note a home in less time, with less manual labor required on their part. For many 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 house’s prices as commission.
Regardless of whether a commission is being charged as a percentage or a flat-fee, the very same quantity of effort must be made to market a home so that it offers rapidly and at the best cost possible. In an ideal world this would be a truth, but sadly it doesn’t seem to be the case. If you speak with 5 different agents concerning the sales of your home, you will probably get 5 different descriptions on exactly what they will do to assist you get your home offered. Some representatives do just taking the photos of the house, in addition to the details of the home, and put them onto the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database, and simply wait for buying agents to bring prospective buyers to view the home. It gets worse when some agents select to bypass the costs of professional photography to make sure the house is presented in addition to possible online, and will take photographs with their cellphones and use those. So their expenses would be very little.
Then you have the more expert agents who will invest their own money (or their brokers’ cash) to not only have professional pictures, but also video, 3D virtual tours, along with newspaper and online marketing (i.e. they are really making an effort to try and find a buyer in addition to offering a home). With these agents the costs for marketing a home will be hundreds, and depending upon the area, perhaps even thousands of dollars. So the choice on exactly how much a representative wants to invest in marketing dollars actually will depend on the potential return on their financial investment when the house ultimately sells. Therefore, a representative who is going to make 3% commission, is probably more likely to invest more cash than an agent who is only going to earn 2%.
So with this being said, you might ask with that logic, won’t a percentage based agent spend more money on marketing than a flat-fee commissioned agent? A lot of time that is most likely to be the case, and you will discover flat-fee brokers out there who will freely advertise that they not do anything more than add your property information and photographs that you need to supply into the MLS. Then you have full-service flat-fee brokers like LISTED Realty in Fort Myers who offer the precise very same services that you would expect from a percentage based broker. As a representative with LISTED Realty, I supply professional photography, professional videography, a 3D virtual tour and internet marketing for all of my listings no matter how much your house is going to be cost, because I think it’s my duty to do whatever in my power to assist get a home sold quickly and effectively. Just how much commission I make would not be a driving factor 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 select an agent to help them offer their houses is performance and value. There is no point in cutting the quantity that you will pay in commission if you choose an agent 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 loans, insurances, taxes, and so on, which exercise to be more than the extra commission you would have paid to a much more efficient agent who might offer your home quicker. Ideally, you would have the very best of both worlds, where you can have the complete suite of sales, marketing and assistance services of your agent and their broker, however paying as little in representatives’ commission as you can.
When you speak to possible agents that you might wish to work with, do not only ask them for specifics on how they’re going to market the home for you, and what extra administrative support is being used, likewise ask for something called a Seller’s Net Sheet, which gives a total breakdown of all the costs related to offering a particular home to calculate how much the seller can expect to bank when their house has actually been sold. A Seller’s Net Sheet will consist of all of the representatives’ commissions among the other expenses.
Once you have all of the info above, then you must have the ability to make a notified choice on which option is best for you.
