DFW Flat Fee MLS Program
Why pay 6%? - Save thousands in Real Estate CommissionsOur DFW Flat Fee MLS program works because there are two real estate agents involved in the sale of almost every house: the buyer's agent who represents the buyer and the listing agent who represents the seller.
A typically seller pays a 6% commission. A home is listed at $225,000 which is split evenly ($13,500), with the "listing agent" getting $6,750 and the "buyer agent" getting the other $6,750.
With our DFW Flat Fee MLS Program, instead of paying the "listing side" of the commission (3% of the gross sales price of your home) you only pay a flat fee at the time of listing and the "buyer agent" fee of 3% ONLY IF a buyers agent procures a buyer for your home. If you, as the seller, find a buyer, you pay 0% commission! VIP Realty Platinum will act as your listing agent, representing you, but we will not collect a listing commission at closing.
Paying 6% Commission Will NOT Sell Your Home Any Faster!
Why the DFW Flat Fee MLS Program Works
Realtor Marketing Myths
When most Realtors sit down with you to list your property, they show you a great presentation telling you all about their wonderful "marketing plan" and how wonderful they are. However, did you know that the majority of properties - approx. 80-90% - are sold by cooperating MLS agents, and NOT by the listing agent? If their marketing plan is so great, why doesn't the listing agent sell the listing themselves? Most agents don't expect to sell the property themselves so they let the MLS and buyer agents do all the work. With that in mind, why would you give your hard-earned equity away to someone with a sign and access to the MLS?
Newspaper, Home Buying Magazine & Print Media
So you think print Ads still work? If you actually believe that Realtors and Brokers advertise your home in home buying magazines and newspapers only to sell your home, then I have some disturbing news for you!
The main reason agents or brokers would pay $100s or even $1,000s a month just to place a property in a home buying magazine or any other print media is to generate buyer leads for themselves and to brand their own companies. In the past we, month after month, spent $1000s for full page ads in real estate magazines and for newspaper classified ads. How many homes did we sell as a direct result of a phone call? None. Most people end up buying another home after they comparison shoped. I assure you, home buyers wont just look at one home, your home, before buying. We ran ads to get our phones to ring so we could assist other people who wanted to Buy or Sell. Have you ever seen homes advertised in the real estate magazines or other print ads with the complete address listed? I wonder why not.
Keep in mind that agents are trained to use marketing materials and tools to promote themselves, their team or their company NOT to actually find a buyer for your home. If you are not aware, when you pay a 5%, 6% or 7% commission you are the one who pays for their marketing campaign.
