How Much Does it Cost to Sell a Home? 

I offer two commission options.  Most agents discuss their commission as a total fee, which includes a typical Buyer Agent fee of 2.8%.  I prefer to discuss my commission percentage only as the amount I end up with.  For example, if you pay a 6% total commission, which includes the buyer agent fee of 2.8%, my portion of the total commission is 3.2%.

The 3.2% Plan
3.2% is my standard* fee for listing a home for sale.  This pays for all marketing expenses, as well as my time, expertise, connections and systems.  The Seller does not participate in the risk of marketing the home, and no up-front deposit is requested. The total commission payable under this plan is 6%.

The 2.4% + $500 Plan
All marketing services are included, as above.  You (the seller) pay an up-front fee of $500 at the time of listing, which is non-refundable.  The total commission payable under this plan is 5.2%.

In most cases, the 2.4% plan costs you quite a bit less.  But since it helps spread the risk a little, it's worth it to me to make less money in the long run, and cover my out-of-pocket expenses along the way.

I'm happy to provide a side-by-side comparison of your cost of sale under each scenario, including the costs over and above the commission. Just ask!
