With our Full Service Brokerage package, we do all of the work you would expect from any real estate agency – with one exception – we limit the amount you pay to sell your home. We meticulously manage each facet of the transaction from pre-listing to settlement for a fraction of the cost of traditional brokerages.
Initially, we will perform an on-site evaluation – gathering all required information for MLS input. We will also provides educated suggestions about repairs and staging in order to enhance the curb appeal of your property. Finally, we will create a listing disclosure package based on your local jurisdiction and property features from among the dozens of potentially required federal, state and local disclosures.
Listings within the Bright MLS reach over 220,000 Realtors® in the Mid-Atlantic region. BrightMLS covers 6 states, including Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia, in addition to Washington D.C. From there your listing is propagated to public web portals such as Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com, Realtor.com and over 1000 more.
Media & Marketing
We utilize media and marketing professionals to capture and display your home to potential buyersusing HDR photography (as many photos as required for your home’s size), as well as virtual staging, if the property is vacant. A new listing email is also sent to thousands of local Realtors announcing your property listing and all media is uploaded to your multi-oulet digital listing.
Utilizing a third party showing service, we coordinate all property tours for you. This safe and secure process allows only licensed agents to request a time to show the property. The automated process will allow you to confirm, deny or reschedule a showing right from your phone. If the property is vacant, we can pre-approve all showing requestsso you do not need to be inconvenienced one bit.
Contract & Negotiations
The modern real estate contract can be anywhere from 20 pages to over 70 pages depending on your jurisdiction and required disclosures. Without proper oversite, the document may have flaws, loopholes, or may not be legally binding. Our experts complete all standard MAR contract paperwork and negotiate the best terms on your behalf while making sure your interests and rights are protected.
When repairs are requested by the buyer, our team will review the standard MAR property inspections notice for all repairs requested. Furthermore, we handle all negotiations with the buyer’s agent on your behalf.
Transaction management allows the seller to sit back and relax rather than worry about upcoming dates, contingencies and third party activities. Our team of transaction coordinators will stay up to date on these and other matters relating to the sale process.
Prior to settlement, our team will review the settlement statement to ensuring that all facts and figures are correct and accounted for as agreed in the contract fo sale. And the best part is – you more than likely saved thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars in Reatlor fees in the process.
Listing Services: $4,999
Buyer agent fee
The buyer representation fee will be calculated one of two ways:
(1) If the buyer is represented by a buyer’s agent and seller has offered a “buyer agency co-op” which is standard in our industry, this fee is paid directly to the buyer’s broker at settlement. This fee can range from as little as $1 to 3% or more of the purchase price. The buyer agency co-op amount is selected by the seller at time of listing.
(2) If the buyer is unrepresented, a buyer service fee in the amount of $3,500 will be added to the listing fee of $4,999 and will be paid to Flat Rate Home Sales at settlement. This fee is necessary to compensate our team for the additional work required to assist the buyer with pre-authorization, loan application, title and escrow selection, as well as other necessary tasks.
Compare this to a traditional real estate brokerage fee of 5-6% of your home’s value.
