How much are you going to charge me to list my home? What is your commission rate?
I get asked this question daily and rightfully so. With 96.6 % of home buyers researching real estate on the web and homes selling quite well in London Ontario, home sellers are thinking, wait a minute, why am I paying a fee to sell my house?
Other industries have changed their business models, such as the travel industry, insurance, retailing, coffee shops, and grocery stores and even how we interact with hospitals, federal, provincial and local governments.
I firmly believe that the high & old-fashioned real estate commission fee structures are outdated and are not keeping up with what is in the best interest for home owners when it comes to sell their home.
As not all real estate companies are the same, not all homes, not all markets and certainly not all people are the same, so I have this philosophy when working with a client and Webster’s Dictionary definition of two, seeming identical words:
Customer: is one who purchases a commodity or service.
Client: is one who is under the protection of another.
So, when a Realtor “serves” clients rather than “sells” clients, a successful real estate transaction occurs, for the buyer, seller & the Realtor
What exactly does “under your protection” mean? In real estate it means that from start to finish the best interests of the client comes first in fiduciary duty, thoroughness, service and most importantly, professionalism.
So, how much do I charge?
I have a flexible fee structure which depends on the property, your needs and your expectations. Once we both go through my home value audit and analysis, together we then can customize a fee structure that will fit your pocket book.
