On June 9, 2018, our 1/2% total commission plan was widely expanded, and now extends to the sale of residential vacant land, commercial land and buildings, industrial land and buildings, business opportunities, residential and commercial leases. On all leases, our commission is only 1/2% of the first year's lease amount.
Home Sales: Our fee is only 1/2% of the sale price.
Hello, folks, my name is Clinton Paquette. If you follow our open house marketing plan, you will find a buyer for your home. After you find that person, and only with your permission to proceed, we would then handle your entire real estate transaction for only 1/2% of the sale price.
That's right. The day of having to negotiate for a lower percentage rate is over. Since we are no longer multiple listing service (MLS) members, we've been able to reduce our commission from a high of 6%, down to only 1/2% of the sale price. As a result, we can save you thousands of dollars at the real estate closing table. On a $300,000 house sale, for example, our commission would be only $1,500. A condominium, on the other hand, closing at $80,000, would earn us a much smaller commission of only $400. Large or small , all of our real estate transactions receive the same degree of attention. Needless to say, the spirit of real competition and customer service are alive and well within our brokerage.
Moving on, and for far too long, now, real estate commissions have been exorbitantly high. Big fees and high commissions, of course, are a consequence of not having real competition in the residential marketplace. Our 1/2% guarantee is an attempt to combat this ongoing problem. For this half percent plan to gain wide acceptance, however, we need your help!
Now, since we don't require a written listing agreement, our peers within the real estate industry would tell us that this is a foolish proposition. They would tell us that most of you will not pay a commission unless contractually obligated to do so. Well, having already done much experimenting with this 1/2% model, we are happy to report that this is not true. Most of you, in fact, after taking into consideration that you could be paying as much as 6% or more, have been more than willing to pay us a 1/2% commission.
So, if our help-u-sell concept is appealing to you, give us a call, today. This is a better way to sell your home, and for much less than what our competitors are charging. Equally important, we now assist homeowners throughout the State of Michigan.
