Most flat fee or MLS listing companies provide little if any support regarding the complicated intricacies of the home selling process. This lack of consultation can literally cost a seller thousands or increase the risk of litigation. We have a team of professionals that go to work and protect your interest. We are able to provide greater support, expertise and professionalism because we only offer our $950 listing service to those that are purchasing a qualifying home locally. Simply put, we look at the value of both sides of the transaction, which allows us to provide a “Full Service” experience for both the selling and buying processes.
*Some restrictions do apply:
1) There’s no minimum sale price on the sale of your current home however, minimum sales price for the purchase of your next home must be $250,000 or greater. An additional $1,000 fee is added to the flat fee of the sale of the home your selling if your purchase is less than $250K (total of $1,950 Flat Fee).
2) The properties being sold and purchased must be in the following Middle TN counties: Davidson, Williamson, Wilson, Rutherford, and Sumner. An additional $1,000 fee is added for homes located outside of the geographical area (total of $1,950 Flat Fee).
3) The flat fee of $950 is payable at time of the listing agreement or the seller has the option of paying 1% of the homes sales price at the time of closing. That is 1% to the listing office and the recommended 3% to the selling office.
4) The only way we can provide our “Flat Fee, Full Service” program is if we collect a 3% commission on your purchase. The 3% is typically offered/paid by the seller of the home you are purchasing. In the event said seller is offering less than 3%, say 2.5%, you (the purchaser) are required to pay that difference. Often time this amount can be negotiated with the seller paying it. This is not considered additional costs, we are simply asking for what is traditionally offered to the selling office. (Example: $350,000 sales price x .5% difference between 3% and 2.5% = a shortage due at closing of $1,750)
**The costs of marketing luxury properties (homes valued at 2 to 3 times the average) can be far greater than those priced closer to the median and therefore may not qualify for the $950 rate. Additional costs might include: drone pictures/video, staging, stand alone websites, etc.
