Springfield, MO is one of the hottest real estate markets in the Midwest. You'll find plenty of opportunities to sell your house fast and for a fair price. But working with traditional brokerages could mean giving up a substantial chunk of that profit to Realtors commissions.
We offer the perfect solution with our flat fee services. Traditional real estate firms typically charge a fee of 6%-7% or more of the sale price. As a flat fee agent, we charge a fixed amount starting at $3,995 for our listing side services and up to 3% as buyer's agent commission, we let you decide that fee.
Take a look at this example:
According to Realtor.com, the median listing price in Springfield as of March, 2020 was $200,000. In a traditional brokerage with a 6% commission fee, you can expect to pay $12,000 to be split between the listing and buying agent.
Compare that to our fee:
3% buying agent fee = $6,000
Total fees = $9,995
YOUR SAVINGS = $2,005
Imagine what you can do with $2,005. You can use that amount to fix up your new house and make it truly your own. Or you can add that to your retirement savings or to your child's college fund. For homes listed above $200,000, the savings can get exponentially higher – perhaps substantial enough to buy a new car.
For us, the better question is, why do other real estate companies still charge a 6% commission fee? Our pricing reflects the way real estate companies should being done today.
The internet has a big impact on the home selling and buying process. In the past, agents had to spend a big amount to create listing ads and make sure the listings are seen by potential buyers. That meant paying for ad space in publications, creating and sending out flyers and mailers, and so on. Sellers were also paying for the time and effort spent on those work-intensive processes.
Fast forward to today, when online listing sites like Zillow and Trullia have become the norm in selling real estate. Thanks to these websites, home buyers get easy access to homes for sale on the MLS. Around 90% of home buyers start their search for a new house online – a major market development that has greatly reduced agents' costs and expenses.
We are proud to say that, as flat-fee real estate agents, we are giving back these savings to you. Our fixed fee service reflects the impact of technology to the changing real estate market, benefitting both agents and clients. It's a game-changing innovation that we think all realtors should emulate.
