Frequently Asked Questions About Selling:

I am ready sell, what is the process of getting a Low Commission Listing?

Call 303-564-4055 or click on one of the red buttons for a complimentary initial consultation to determine if my low commission listing services are right for you.

Although I offer low commission listings, I am a full service REALTOR with over 25 years of experience and will be with you every step of the way!

A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) will be prepared for your property.  A CMA will give you an idea of what your home should sell for in today’s market based on comparing similar properties in your area that have sold, are under contract, or are listed for sale.  I use the same techniques as a fee appraiser to determine the most probable sales price for your home.

I will visit your home to meet with you and to tour your property.  We will discuss marketing strategy and I provide advice about how to prepare yourself and your property for the sale.

At this point, if you are ready to move forward, I will explain all of the contracts we will use, property photos will be taken, and I will leave a for sale sign and lockbox at your property.

Your property will be listed on the MLS as well as 100’s of other real estate sites such as Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, yahoo, etc.

Agents who want to show your home will contact my office to set showings.  You will be notified prior to any showings so that you can spruce your home up and get ready for the showing.

When we receive offers, I will go over the pros and cons of the offer(s) with you and negotiate with the buyers or their agents.

Once we are under contract, the buyers earnest money will be placed in an escrow account.  I will keep you updated regarding the status of the buyers loan, inspections, the appraisal, and any other issues or items that need to be addressed.

I will attend closing with you.  Here, we will sign all of the necessary documents to transfer the property and you will receive your proceeds, which will be thousands higher due to my low commission listing.

Why do you offer Low Commission Listings?

Simply put, I think its fair.

The traditional commission system was a fair system before the internet came about.  We used to need to spend a lot of time and money marketing properties.  The more expensive a home was, the more marketing it needed because there was a smaller market for that property.  We spent money on print media such as real estate magazines and newspapers, we had to print hundreds of flyers and drive to real estate offices to drop them off, we attended marketing sessions to get the word out to other agents, the list goes on – it was a lot of work and we deserved the commission we got.

According to the National Association of Realtors, this is where buyers currently find the home they purchase:

  • Internet: 51%
  • Real estate agent: 30%
  • Yard sign/open house sign: 7%
  • Friend, relative or neighbor: 6%
  • Home builder or their agent: 5%
  • Directly from sellers/Knew the sellers: 2%
  • Print newspaper advertisement: Less than 1%

As you can see, our job has changed.  Of course I still believe there is a lot of value in using a Real Estate Broker to help you sell your house however, 3% or more for the listing agent is just not fair anymore.

How much is a Low Commission Listing and how much will I save?

I charge a total of 4.5% commission and that includes the co-op commission for the buyers agent. If there is no other agent involved in the transaction, the total commission is reduced to 4%.

How much you save depends on how much other agents want to charge you.  Commissions are negotiable and while there is no set percentage, many traditional commission plans range from 6% to 7%, which includes the co-op commission.

How do you market my home?

When you enter into a low commission listing with me, you still get all of the marketing of a full service Realtor.  For a detailed look at how I market your home, see my home seller marketing page

Internet:  Your home will be indexed in hundreds of real estate web sites including Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, Yahoo, and Homes.com in addition to any real estate company or agent who uses feeds from the Denver Metro MLS System.  I work hard to write compelling remarks and include beautiful photos in order to entice potential buyers to want to see your home and to encourage real estate agents to want to show your home.

Real Estate Agent:  Real estate agents find properties through the MLS.  Upon taking your listing, I will promptly fill out all relevant forms and submit your listing to the MLS.  This ensures that real estate agents have access to a complete and accurate listing of your home.

Yard Sign:  Upon taking your listing, I will place a professional for sale sign in your yard (sometimes two signs for corner lots and window signs for condos).

Friend, Relative or Neighbor:  I am happy to hold open houses and I send just listed cards to your neighbors.  If you have a friend or relative who might be interested, let me know!

Home Builder:  Unless you are a home builder, this wont help us.

Do you ask me to sign a long term contract?

No.  I write a clause into our contract stating that as long as we are not under contract on a property, you can terminate our contract with 24 hour written notice.  If you are ever not happy with my services, you are certainly free to move on at any time.
