Real estate agents typically charge 6% as a flat listing service charge for selling a home. Some custom services may even be available for a greater percentage; this depends on the location or region, the scope of work and real estate market conditions.
Selling a home can be one of the most stressful things that a family or individual goes through, but it doesn’t have to be a horrendous process. At Trent real estate, we are available to help you ease the stress of selling your home. Not only that, we will only charge you 3% for the listing service which is half of what others take with no other fees attached to it till the deal is closed.
Our agents have the experience to deal with a wide variety of properties because they are well trained, experienced, and they are able to bring in a lot more potential customers than other agents in the field or people who try to sell on their own.
A very limited number of agents work on a flat fee scale. However, some agents charge the seller for each service they provide. Because it can be so difficult for realtors to parse out their individual services. Since their pay is tied to the selling price of the home, an agent is very motivated to get the highest price possible. Because they do not get any money until a home sell.
In a flat fee MLS listing, the listing agreement between the real estate agent and the home seller typically requires the agent to enter the property into the MLS and provide other contracted services, with the agent acting as what the real estate industry refer to as limited service broker.
Why we are different
Some brokerage takes listings at a flat rate and a home seller still end up paying additional cooperating percentage on that amount to the agent. For example you might see an ad offering to help list your home for $2000 and somewhere in the print (not so obvious if even shown at all) there will be a disclaimer that this amount is exclusive of the fee paid to the estate agent. At Trent Real Estate, our dealings are plain, and you don’t incur any other expenses apart from the 3%.
Why you should accept our Reduced Listing Service?
At Trent Real Estate our motive is to help you make as much money as possible from the sale of your home. This will help you save more and spend less.
Some sellers are extremely savvy about selling their own homes and don’t believe they need a full-fledged marketing campaign. However, selling a home revolves around some technicalities that are only well understood by realtors. When you use our service, we help you list the home, take care of all the technicalities that surround the selling and finally bring smile to your face. In addition, if you are unhappy with our services you are free to cancel at any time.
