Discount Listing Broker Services

Full Service MLS Listings

The Local Expert in Highlands Ranch

With over 10 years experience in the Highlands Ranch market I know that houses can sell quickly, and with little effort. So, it's probably not reasonable to pay a broker $25,000- just to enter it into the MLS. It is reasonable to pay the 'selling broker' (working with the buyer) a good commission because that's where all the hard work really is.

Full service MLS listing are 2% plus the customary selling side commission.
No national franchise fees or affiliated services expenses.

I have sold houses using only a Zillow posting and didn't pay ANY commissions. Buyers are searching Zillow and making deals direct with the owners. Usually, however, there is a 'Selling Broker' involved in most transactions.
They will expect to receive a 2.8% commission. However, by law, that is fully negotiable. The large national franchises will have the highest commission rates plus some additional company fees.
- having a licensed broker involved will make the paperwork flow much easier.

You will definitely want a broker at some point to put together the paperwork, disclosures and inspections.

Discount and Flat Fee Brokerage Services

In the current market, there are several listing options. Here's the most common:

National Franchise 'Full Fee' Brokers: (ReMax, KW, Coldwell Banker, etc)
2.8% listing commission plus 2.8% Selling Broker commission. Plus franchise fees.
Always members of the Realtors Association, promoting their 'full service' listings.

Discount Commission Brokers:
Typically, they will charge a 1% listing fee, plus 2.8% for the Selling Broker.
This is a common practice for newbie or low performing brokers looking for business.
I charge a 2% listing commission. The selling broker will want 2.8% - they would settle for less.

Flat Fee Brokers:
Fees range from $1,000- to $3,000- PAYABLE IN ADVANCE
A huge savings, but if the house doesn't sell you don't get a refund.
- in this market that's probably not an issue, but still a risk.
I would charge around $2,000- for a flat fee listing - depending on the property and pricing.

We Buy Houses:
They will offer you a cash price. Usually, it's heavily discounted (40%) but it is a cash price and a quick sale.
If you need the cash immediately they will deliver it. (there are some bad players in this market).
However, if you have a house in Highlands Ranch, I would also be a cash buyer, at a price 10% higher.

For Sale By Owner:
Listing it yourself in Zillow and managing the entire transaction by yourself.
Often, these transactions fail to close when the seller can't execute proper contracts for closing.
Using a Transaction Broker service to manage the contracts, compliance and closing is a must.
