PLAN B - $995 Flat Fee MLS Listing
with Full Representation
Includes everything in Plan A, plus full representation in all contract negotiations, paperwork and documentation.
Our representation is as good as, if not better than, what you would expect from a highly competent 6% real estate broker.
- We negotiate contracts every day.
- We know when to push, when to let up, and what points
- We know the warning signs in an offer that deserve closer
scrutiny. Sellers often get into contracts that never close
because they aren't used to seeing the red flags in an offer.
Sellers have a tendency to drop price too quickly in the midst of negotiations out of fear of losing the deal, and other times cling to a price or certain terms they are unlikely to get. Seller emotions can also get in the way.
Another problem is that over half of all agents are not very competent (we hate to denigrate the profession, but we are being kind). Unlike CPAs, doctors or lawyers, there is no formal education requirement to be a real estate agent. Any high school dropout can become a Realtor if he takes a few easy courses and passes an easy licensing exam. Incompetent agents lead to problems, wasted time and transactions that never close.
Some agents can be difficult to deal with or downright aggravating, or just want to give you a hard time when you are representing yourself.
While the Transaction Guide on this website can be very informative with handling the paperwork, even a hefty book is no substitute for 30 years of experience.
For all these reasons, we highly recommend the full representation package.
