One of the biggest differences that we have is the commission that we charge for our listings. We only charge 1% commission for all our listings and you don’t even have to buy another home through us to get that commission. We charge everyone that same 1% commission.
What does it take to sell your home in this market and in this time period? It takes maximum exposure to the market and being online in as many places as you can be. Most traditional agents are only a member of one MLS system.
One thing that we do is we provide electronic lock boxes on all of our listings. This is versus the traditional agent where 90 plus percent of those agents are still putting manual lock boxes out there for their listings.
This is the first in a series where I’m going to explain the differences between us and a traditional real estate agent. One of the main differences is of course what we charge. We charge 1% commission for all of our listings. That is about a third of what other agents are charging. Many agents out there are charging a full 6% Commission and then they’re paying approximately 2.8 percent of the buyer’s agent which means you are paying the listing agent 3.2 percent Commission versus our 1%.
