Overview of Pricing
As your Trusted Real Estate Consultant, pricing is based upon a shared-risk model, which allows the client the opportunity to save money. The following description provides an overview of pricing. Actual costs will be based upon the “Scope of Work” or “Services Provided” and can be provided upon request.
Sellers Who Want to Share the Risk with Me
If you are a seller, I offer a shared-risk option. If you elect to pay a non-refundable retainer fee upfront for my time and expenses, I will reduce my listing commission from the “full” 6 percent fee that I charge when someone does not pay the retainer fee. Paying the retainer fee saves you money at closing because the reduction in commission results in a much lower overall fee even after paying the retainer fee upfront. As an alternative, you will still be allowed to pay according to the traditional real estate model detailed above.
Buyers Who Want to Share the Risk with Me
If you are a buyer, I offer a shared-risk option. If you elect to pay a non-refundable retainer fee upfront for my time and expenses, I will credit the retainer back to you at closing plus rebate $100* of the co-op commission that I receive as a special closing gift.
*Buyers will receive a $100 rebate as a closing gift if the purchase price is $200,000 or greater.
For Sale by Owners (FSBOs)
If you are a FSBO, I offer three packages: 1) CMA-only, 2) Contract preparation, and 3) Contract-to-Closing assistance. I charge a flat fee for a CMA. Contract preparation services are a flat fee as well. Contract-to-Closing services can be paid for by the hour or a flat fee, of which 50% will be paid upfront and the remaining 50% to be paid at closing.
Owners of Expired Listings Who Want to Know What Went Wrong
For Expired Listing Owners, I offer a What Went Wrong? Consultation and Analysis in which I will analyze the unsuccessful listing experience to help you determine why your home failed to sell and what could be done differently in the future. The cost of this service will be a flat fee, payable in advance. If you would like to hire me to list your home, I will apply some or all of the payment towards the listing fee.
Investors Who Find Their Own Properties to Renovate and Sell
If you are an investor, I offer a variety of services to those who buy, renovate and sell properties that you find on your own. Since each investor’s situation is unique, I will perform a Needs Analysis and then prepare a proposal based on your individual needs, goals and budget. You can pay by the hour, by the project or possibly under a retainer arrangement.
Small Business Owners Looking to Lease or Purchase Office Space
If you are a small business owner looking to lease or purchase office space, a non-refundable retainer fee will be required upfront. I will rebate a portion of the co-op fee or commission that I will receive after the lease is signed or at closing.
Other Client Types
For all other client-types, I charge my hourly rate or offer a Flat Fee, depending upon the complexity of the project and the length of time it will take to complete.
