FINALLY ... AN ALTERNATIVE!
If you've ever sold a home before, you know what the typical sales commission costs are. Do you remember how you felt when you saw what you paid to the real estate company? Do you remember what you thought the cost should be for the work done? Well, I felt the same way when my husband and I sold our past homes! That is, until we listed our last home with One Percent Realty Ltd!
We were so impressed by the One Percent Realty Ltd. "Full Service Discount Commission" concept and the way our home was marketed that I decided to become a REALTOR® (specialized real estate agent) in the Central Okanagan (Kelowna, West Kelowna, Peachland & Lake Country) and join their team of professionals.
I believe that if I can sell your home for the most money possible, at the lowest commission cost AND give you the best service & advice that you have ever had, you'll tell all your family and friends! My MLS® "Full Service" package is focused to attract the right buyer for your home with professional signs & posts, great descriptions & pictures of your home. All my listings get maximum internet exposure: all MLS® websites, hundreds of affiliated third party websites & One Percent Realty Ltd. website.
Because I'm SERVICE motivated, I'll give you an UNCONDITIONAL release of the MLS® contract if I don't do what I say I'm going to!
SUPPORT FROM FULL COMMISSION REALTORS®
Please understand that a good home, well priced will sell! All REALTORS® know this. If your home is well kept and priced accurately, it will sell. It has no relationship to the amount of commission you pay. Most buyers also do their own searching on the internet, even when they have a buying agent!
If you've heard anything negative about why One Percent Realty Ltd. won't be able to sell your home as well as ANY "full commission agent" it just isn't so! Good REALTORS® find the right homes for their clients NOT homes where THEY make more commission. The name REALTOR® is a trademark for real estate licensees that represent a higher standard of professionalism in the real estate industry. REALTORS® function under a strict Code of Ethics and legally must NOT put their own interests ahead of their clients! I have a proven track record with co-operating "full commission" REALTORS®.
I PROVIDE THE SAME GREAT SERVICE AS THE TOP FULL COMMISSION AGENTS BUT AT A FRACTION OF THE PRICE!
WHAT AGENT LISTING TEAMS DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW
The June 15, 2018
new BC Government laws & rules actually put agent teams at a disadvantage!
With the banning of Limited Dual Agency (agents can no longer represent both
seller & buyer in the same transaction) all agents of a team also represent
the seller so they are ALL now banned from selling their own listing to one of their
HIGHEST COMPETENCY LEVEL IN PROTECTING CONSUMERS
The June 15, 2018 new BC Government laws & rules also made it MANDATORY for real estate agents to provide, discuss & get a response to the form "Know Your Options As A Real Estate Consumer" (Disclosure of Representation to Trading Services) PRIOR to providing ANY real estate services (such as giving any real estate advice, doing a market evaluation to determine how much to list your home, giving advice on how to prepare to sell your home, show a home to a potential buyer, etc. ). ALL COMPETENT PROFESSIONAL REAL ESTATE AGENTS WILL COMPLY WITH THESE RULES BEFORE GIVING YOU REAL ESTATE ADVICE & OR PROVIDING ANY REAL ESTATE SERVICES.
COST TO SELL YOUR HOME WITH FULL MLS® SERVICE?
Basically ... If your home or property is sold for *$700,000 or lower it will cost:
$7,000 in Commission + $950 in Disbursements + $397.50 GST (5%) =
For a Total Cost of: $8,347.50
Homes sold for $700,000 and over have a commission cost of 1% of the selling price + $950 in Disbursements + GST (5%).
The commission is usually split equally with ALL co-operating MLS® REALTORS® unless otherwise agreed upon through listing negotiations!
All MLS® Full Service listings contracts are usually a minimum 6 months in length (depending on the listing price, type of property, market conditions facing the type of property) due to the time it takes properties to sell & the financial risk I will incur if the property does not sell versus the reward of my business model.
The actual time it takes to sell will be determined by you & will depend on you & your willingness to not only price your home competitively with the market, but also to negotiate a fair market value when an offer comes in.
This total cost includes (unless otherwise negotiated):
- Full MLS®
exposure in the real estate system & 3rd party website permission
- Full MLS® coverage (All MLS® websites & 3rd party destination websites)
- Full description & listing on One Percent Realty Ltd. website
- Trusted, knowledgeable & experienced professional real estate service
- Full MLS® Service Brokerage at a fraction of the price
- Professional signage, listing documents (title search, strata documents etc.)
If your listing contract expires before the property is sold, you don't pay a cent!
It is understood
that I cannot guarantee the amount of showings, buyers or offers. These are a
direct reflection on the listing price and market competition and not on my
COMPARED TO THE TYPICAL COMMISSION
The typical real estate commission in the Okanagan Region is 7% on the first $100,000 and 3% on the balance. If you listed and sold a below average priced single family dwelling home at $400,000 with a typical full commission REALTOR® it would cost you:
$16,000 in Commission + $800 in GST (5%) on the Commission =
For a Total Cost of: $16,800 (Over twice as much!)
YOU DO THE MATH ... ON YOUR HOME!
AS THE SELLING PRICE OF YOUR HOME GOES UP YOU JUST SAVE MORE MONEY ON COMMISSION!
LISTING PRICE & TIME TO SELL
The length of time to sell and listing price are directly related to each other, so depending on your motivation (more money, faster time etc.) we work together to make sure the list price stays relevant to the end objective.
REALTORS® do not get paid until a property sells, so some will price to sell faster. My goal is to achieve the highest price based on a time line that my clients give me. The market always lets us know if we are too high or priced right for that given time. The indicator is activity (or lack of it) and/or offers from buyers.
My goal is to put the "saved" commission in your pocket. However, IF the market SOFTENS and you HAVE to sell, that "saved" commission amount could be used for reducing YOUR sale price. This means that your home SELLS ahead of others while still netting you more money than if you had listed with a typical full commission REALTOR®.
NEED A BUYER'S AGENT TOO?
I reward ALL my clients financially when helping them find "FULL COMMISSION" new homes based on the commission I earn, even though the seller usually pays the commission. Use me and be GUARANTEED a financial advantage when signing a Buyer's Agency Exclusive Contract!
SMART SELLERS ACT SMART & GET THE BEST FOR LESS!
