What We Offer
TOTAL TRANSACTION MANAGEMENT
We are here to take care of the whole process. From listing to closing, our flat fee realtor will handle it all including intermediary procedures like showing your property, negotiating offers, coordinating with a title company or your attorney, and managing every step of the selling cycle. Our team of experts will handle all the headaches involved in the selling-buying process. So just leave it to us knowing every step will be taken care of in a professional and timely manner.
Since the bulk of real estate buyers (about 95%) search for properties online first, we immediately arrange to have your house or condo listed on the most prominent sites like Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com, Redfin, Movoto, etc. Your home listing also gets syndicated to over 200 other popular real estate portals. Within a few hours, your home will appear on every realtor’s website. What’s more, we will also regularly send you updates and feedback received from prospective buyers on these sites, keeping you informed at every step.
SOCIAL MEDIA & EMAIL MARKETING
Immediately after listing your property on the MLS and other syndicated sites, we market your house or condo to active real estate agents, prospective buyers and investors. This is done simultaneously with email marketing campaigns and social media exposure. It’s all about creating a buzz about your property, as early as possible in the marketing process.
PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEO
Each property listing features 25 to 60 top-quality (more if necessary), professionally shot high-resolution images that will show your property under the best possible light to prospective buyers. This is also reinforced by a 3D virtual tour with 360-degrees pictures. Anyone interested in your property will get a full view of what it’s like without even having to visit, which is helpful for foreign or remote buyers. On single-family houses, drone / aerial pictures will be taken as well. The images we’ll show will make your property stand out with awesome clarity and capture the attention of buyers.
Prompt and effective communication is our hallmark and we leave no stone unturned at maintaining the highest standards when we perform our work. Our in-house team uses state-of-the-art communication tools and gives you constantly updated information regarding feedback, appointments, and answering client questions regarding your property. We firmly believe that the quicker and more accurate our communication is with you and the prospective buyers, the better we stand in selling your home promptly.
DIRECT MAIL CAMPAIGN
Our activities are not only web-focused. We also prepare successful and attractive Direct Mail campaigns and informative mailers are sent out to prospective buyers in your selling area. The right people in the appropriate neighborhoods are geo-targeted through these mailers so we try to obtain the most “bang for the buck”. We never waste resources in order to avoid the guessing game when it comes to selling your house or condo.
Flat Fee Q & A
What is a flat fee realtor?
A flat fee realtor is a real estate agent who charges a set fee instead of the traditional commission-based fee structure. They have become increasingly popular in the real estate industry recently. Their rise in popularity can be attributed to several factors. Consumers have become more educated in regards to the costs associated with buying or selling a home, and they are looking for ways to save money. The internet has also changed the way real estate transactions are conducted. With the rise of online real estate platforms and listing services, buyers and sellers now have more tools to handle some aspects of the transaction themselves, rather than relying solely on a traditional real estate agent. Finally, the real estate industry has become much more competitive with many newcomers. Flat fee realtors offer a more affordable option for consumers, allowing them to save money on real estate commissions without necessarily sacrificing service or expertise. As more consumers become aware of the flat fee option and as technology continues to make the buying and selling process more accessible, it is likely that the need and demand for flat fee brokerages will continue to grow.
What are the advantages of using a flat fee realtor?
– Lower Cost: One of the most significant benefits of working with a flat fee realtor is obviously saving on closing costs. You can save a significant amount of money compared to traditional real estate commissions that typically range from 5 to 6% of the sale price. You can expect paying a flat fee to the listing company and a commission to the agent providing a buyer, generally about 2.5%.
– Transparency: You know exactly what you will pay upfront, and there shouldn’t be any surprises or hidden costs. Flat fee agents and brokers offer a more transparent pricing structure, allowing sellers to budget more accurately.
What are the possible disadvantages of using a flat fee realtor?
-Potentially limited Services: Flat fee realtors may offer fewer services than traditional real estate agents. You may need to handle some aspects of the sale yourself, such as showings, marketing, photography, open houses, contracts, compliance, negotiation, etc. Our company handles all aspects of the sale the way traditional real estate agents would. Our goal is to avoid any pitfall that might delay the sale of the property. Details count.
– Quality of Service: Some flat fee realtors may not have the same level of experience or expertise as traditional agents. Be sure to research the realtor carefully and read reviews before deciding to work with them. Our company’s broker holds a license since 2007 and is knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate and financing.
– Incentives: Flat fee realtors are paid upfront, which means they usually do not have the same incentives as traditional agents to sell your home once they’ve been paid. At Flat Fee Florida Realty, we only get paid at closing, once your home is sold.
– Compliance: When dealing with flat fee MLS companies, home sellers are left on their own to handle some sensitive aspects of the sale process where compliance and liability could become issues down the road. We make sure you are fully protected by providing prospective buyers with all necessary disclosures.
How to Chose a flat fee realtor?
Not all flat fee brokers are created equal, and you must do your research before choosing a provider. Some are just referral companies and do not handle anything themselves. Some may offer limited services, while others may have hidden fees or charges. It is important to read reviews and ask questions to ensure that you are getting all the services you need at a fair price. Who does what? At what price? Paid upfront or at closing? These are important questions that should be asked as well.
At Flat Fee Florida Realty, our most important goal is your entire satisfaction. We can ensure a high level of service by handling all aspects of the transaction ourselves.
