Selling your home is not an easy or simple task. That’s why many people opt to hire a real estate agent to guide, market and sell their biggest investment. And while hiring an agent does save you time and gets your property listed with the MLS, is it really worth 3-4% of your sales price? We don’t think so.
And that’s why we’ve developed flat-fee options that save many of our clients thousands of dollars.
You’re ready to sell your home but not wild about paying out 6 to 7% in commission fees on top of all the other closing fees coming your way. Well, you’re not alone. And that’s where Realty Connect — Tulsa’s premier flat-fee real estate company — can help and save you money.
The listing agent gets $9,000 or 3%. And the buyer’s agent gets $9,000 or 3%. The buyer’s agent brings the buyer for a 3% commission. But what does the listing agent do for 3%? Fill out some forms, upload photos, schedule showings.
Is that really worth $9,000?
Don’t forget that the listing agent only gets paid if your house sells. They put their time and money into listing your house and gamble on winning a piece of the 6% jackpot.
Not to mention, you can’t list on the MLS, which means thousands of people won’t know about your house.
Realty Connect reduces the gamble and the commissions when you sell your house.
With Realty Connect, you can purchase a listing solution up front and pay 3% to the agent who brings you a buyer. Plus, your home is listed on MLS and other real estate websites.
When the house sells, you only pay the 3% to the buyer’s agent.
Compared to the traditional 6%, you save $8,000 selling with Realty Connect.
That’s not all. If you need help with the legal aspects, paperwork, negotiating and closing process, you can purchase broker’s assistance for a minimum of $1,500 or 0.5% on homes over $300,000.
After adding broker’s assistance you would still save $6,500.
