Hello, folks, my name is Clinton Paquette. From this point forward (09/27/16), I charge only 3% total commission to help you buy, sell or lease a property. On a sale, my commission would be 3% of the sale price. On a lease, my commission would be 3% of one year's lease amount, even if a tenant signs for two or more years. Equally important, I don't require a written listing agreement. Because of this, you can remain for sale by owner. And if you're a landlord searching for a tenant, you can also remain for lease by owner. At the same time of your by-owner efforts, you'll receive the benefits of my advertising and marketing. And if I sell or lease your property before you do, you would agree to pay me 3% total commission. It's really that easy!
That's right. The day of having to negotiate for a lower percentage rate is over. Since I'm no longer a multiple listing service (MLS) member, I've been able to reduce my commission from a high of 6%, down to only 3%. As a result, I can save you thousands of dollars at the real estate closing table. On a $200,000 sale, for example, this is a huge savings of $6,000! Without a doubt, the spirit of competition is alive and well within my real estate brokerage.
Moving on, and for far too long, now, real estate commissions have been exorbitantly high. To exacerbate this problem, some real estate agencies are now charging even more than the typical 6% commission amount. And to my amazement, many people are paying these excessive fees. Big fees and high commissions, of course, are a consequence of not having enough competition in both the commercial and residential markets. My 3% commission plan is an attempt to combat this ongoing problem. In the end, property owners will be the winners.
So, if you need to buy, sell or lease, give me a call, today. I offer full-service real estate services for only 3% total commission. Even better, my 3% total commission model is here to stay. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
