Chicago Real Estate Discount Broker
Everyone is not the same. There are options for home sellers who want to save on real estate commissions. List your home for 3.5%. You will get
the same professional full service representation. Our goal is to provide you with excellent service while saving you thousands of dollars
Selling a Home?
Some home sellers like yourself don't want to or can't afford to pay a 5 or 6 percent of the sale proceeds to a broker. This is especially true today
when many buyers find their homes online and only use an agent or broker to close the deal.
You decided to engage the help of a real estate broker in selling your Chicago condo or home but you're the kind of person who is finding it very hard
to pay a huge commission from the sale of your home when your obvious choice is that you want to keep as much money from the sale as possible.
Full Service Listing for 3.5% Commission
Many home sellers tell us that after they pay off their existing mortgage, their real estate commission may be the next largest expense in selling
their home. What can we do for you? You will receive the same full service of a traditional brokerage, but you will only pay
at closing a total of 3.5 percent commission to list your home on the MLS.
Some real estate agents will tell you that we are a discount broker. They will say you get what you pay for. What those agents or brokers are
saying to you is "Why pay less when you can pay an agent more?" Considering that we provide you the same services at a
lower cost, there is absolutely no correlation between the real estate commission you pay a broker or agent and the quality of service you receive
from a full service Chicago real estate discount broker. Think about this. Would you say that a traditional brokerage company or agent that lowers
their commission rate from six percent to five percent or even from five percent to four percent to list a home is a discount broker? What makes
sense must be true. It's important for you to understand that there are real estate firms that provide limited services that position themselves
as less expensive versions of their full service competitors. It is also important for you to understand and differentiate between the service model
types and choose the one that is most appropriate for your needs.
Home Sellers Who Want To Save On Real Estate Commissions
For the home seller, we offer all the assistance that a traditional broker or agent provides. Your property is listed in the Realtor Multiple
Listing Service (MLS). Seller representation include scheduling and showing the property to potential buyers and contract negotiations. We present
you with all offers, discuss your options, make recommendations and changes necessary for any counter-offers, as well as review with you contractual
details. By law real estate commissions are not fixed.They are set by each broker individually and are negotiable between the seller and the broker
when the listing agreement is created.
When a home or listing is entered into a Multiple Listing Service (MLS), listing agents offer a portion of their commission to the buyer agents.
When we list your home we offer 2.5 percent commission to the buyer's agent through the MLS. This is the same commission rate they can expect
from other real estate listing brokers. The remaining 1 percent is for our listing fee. There is no difference for a buyer agent selling your property
or any other property listing.
One final note. We understand that some home sellers find the topic of real estate commissions and fees fascinating and are finding alternative
ways to save on commission costs. After all, any percentage of a big number and most homes sell for relatively big numbers - is itself a big number,
and who doesn't like to learn how to minimize a big expense? Just because you are paying less does not mean you should expect anything less than
full real estate services.
