How Does Modern Way Realty Save Sellers Money?
Real estate agents typically charge 6% to list your property. If you’re selling a property for $300,000, that’s a whopping $18,000 in commissions. With our Flat Fee Listing options, you save the 3% listing commission AND you choose how much commission you want to offer the buyer’s agent (1-3%).
From Do-It-Yourself to Full Service, our Flat Fee Listings save sellers an average of $12,000 while exposing their property to thousands of potential buyers everyday.
Not all companies that offer Flat Fee Listings are created equally. Beware of companies that are located outside of Michigan but offer listings in Michigan and other states. These companies charge you for the listing but then they must refer your listing to an agent that is licensed in the state of Michigan who can list it on the local MLS. You have no idea who your listing will be referred to or what kind of service you will be getting from that agent. We are not a referral service. You deal with us directly from listing to closing. We only list properties in the state of Michigan where we are licensed.
Most Flat Fee Listing companies do not offer full service listings. We offer both Do It Yourself listing options and Full Service options. With our Full Service listing options, we do almost everything a traditional agent does for a fraction of the cost.
How Does Modern Way Realty Save Buyers Money?
Get cash back at closing with our Home Buyer Rebate. We rebate buyers 50% of the commission we receive from the seller at closing which is usually 3% of the sale price.
It costs you (the buyer) NOTHING and you get cash back at closing to go towards the purchase price or your closing costs.
