Some people mistakenly think that there must be a “catch” if they work with a flat fee real estate agent. How can these flat fee agencies offer such low prices? Homeowners often jump to conclusions that additional fees will be added later, or the flat-fee advertised prices simply aren’t real.
Flat Fee Real Estate Agents Save You Money
But, the truth is that you can actually save thousands of dollars by choosing a flat fee structure instead of a traditional real estate agent. Here at Duffy Realty of Atlanta, our goal is to help you buy or sell your home and to maximize the amount of equity that you will have from the home. One essential step to increase your equity is for us to decrease the commission that we receive from the sale.
Most traditional real estate agents stick with a high commission percentage that they receive when the home is sold. So, they work based on the understanding that they will be paid for the work once the deal is closed. As a result, some real estate agents work on a deal for a long time before the home finally sells and they can get paid.
In comparison, a flat fee real estate agent has a specific payment structure in place. These commissions are quite a bit cheaper, because we understand that our customers shouldn’t be paying that much money for real estate services. We are completely transparent about the commission structure, so there is never doubt about how much you will be paying for our services.
Will You Sacrifice Quality of Service?
Another myth is that you will receive sub-par service from a flat-fee real estate agent. This simply isn’t true, especially when you are working with Duffy Realty of Atlanta. We understand the importance of customer service, which is why every team member will work hard to help with your real estate needs.
Our agency offers full real estate services and low commissions, and we can make this happen for several reasons. The upfront fee that is charged helps to take away the risk of a real estate agent gambling on the marketing of the home by spending out-of-pocket money to advertise the property.
Additionally, we understand that the real estate industry has changed over the years. Previously, it took a lot of work to market a home. But, now that we have the internet, it is easier and cheaper to market the listing through online platforms. Instead of sticking with traditional commission structures, we want to pass those savings onto you.
