Why Great Rate Realty?
Buying or Selling a Home is one of the biggest decisions you'll make in your life! We believe that most people would prefer to have a professional agent at their side. Having an expert agent to guide you through the process can relieve stress and make your transaction as smooth as possible. Most people agree with this philosophy as the majority of homes are bought and sold through organized real estate...BUT WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH?!
Born out of a desire to realign the way fees are charged in the real estate industry, we give you professional advice and guidance for a fee that we believe is more in line with the value of what real estate listing commissions should be in today's technologically driven marketplace. As we have shared our message, we continue to receive support from the public. The general consensus from our clients is that real estate professionals should be paid for their services, however, those rates need to be more in line with consumer expectations.
What does your brokerage charge?
We charge $4,995 to list all homes under $500,000. For homes $500,000 and over, we charge 1%. This is our listing fee commission.
We also consult with you on the commission to offer to the the buyers agent, that brings the buyer to the transaction. We'll discuss with you on the most popular commission rates offered in your area and also advise on where we think you can save even more money!
Do you charge the fees up front?
No. Fees are paid when a house is sold and transaction is complete, as per listing contract. And if your home doesn't sell, you pay nothing!
Are your listings with the local real estate board and on the MLS®?
Yes, and Yes!
Will other Agents show my home?
Yes. All real estate agents are required to show homes that meet their clients needs and best interests. We will work with you to establish a commission offering that is an attractive rate to other real estate agents. More than 80% of the time, a home is sold by an agent from another real estate brokerage, so you want to consider that when deciding on a commission offering.
