Some Tampa Bay Real Estate Agents offer Discount Fees and You usually wind up with Discount Service and Marketing. Your Tampa Bay Home might remain on the Market for an extended period of time. The time and expense involved for the Listing Agent who is promoting Your Home might be spread among a dozen or more Discount Listings. Everybody saves!  Right??? Wrong ! ! !

You only save when Your Property is Sold. You'll be paying property taxes and other expenses while your real estate sits on the market. The other property you want to buy...may get sold before you can make an offer. Every Tampa Bay Real Estate Seller wants to save money while getting superior service. This we understand and truly respect.

If you're a potential seller, then you've probably done your homework and contacted numerous Tampa Bay Real Estate Agents. You invited them over to view the property and to consult with you. Some of the sales pitches were probably excellent and some might have needed fine tuning. In the back of your mind you wanted to know, or you might have asked directly - What is the commission? How much will I have to increase the listing price to cover the commission? The law states that all commissions are negotiable and cannot be fixed. A fair negotiable commission structure for all concerned is our objective.

We market your property on the internet in every example.
One Example: We market your property on the internet on multiple highly ranked web sites and in the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service. If we find the buyer who closes on your listing, the total commission is 3.5%
Over 85% of homebuyers shop online before requesting a showing and making a deal, up from 41% in 2001. (Source: Business week magazine). To enter real estate in the Multiple Listing System (MLS) compensation must be offered to other agents to expose the listing to their buyers.
If another agent brings in the buyer
the total commission on the sale is 6%.

List/Buy Package - You must list your property with us and agree to purchase your next property with our representation. You'll receive a closing bonus of 10% of our commission as a closing bonus on your purchase.

Note-  We do not accept every listing. Likewise, you do not accept every listing presentation
Some examples - Asking us to generously overprice the listing. Putting severe restrictions on showing the property to potential buyers. Making unusual demands about marketing the property. Misrepresentations about the property condition, etc.
