There is no reason why you should pay the listing real estate company more than $3500!
In the Colorado Springs area, most real estate agents charge 6% (3% to listing agent and 3% to buyers agent) to list your home. On top of that, they charge you extra fees, which can be called Administration Fees, Transaction Fees, or Filing Fees. These additional fees often range from $195 to $800, and add up to more money out of your pocket!
List home for $300,000
Listing agent/company fee of 3% = $9,000
Buyers agent fee (the agent that presents an offer from their buyer) 3% = $9,000
Extra fees in the Additional Provisions of the Contract to Sell can be added. You must read your contract to know exactly how much you will be charged in additional fees:
$500 (This fee could be more or less)
This scenario leaves You the Seller a Total of
$18,500 Out of Pocket!

You might ask yourself “why does she have a flat listing fee? Is it less service? Less advertising?” The answer is simple! Why should I benefit from the equity of your home? I think the better question is “why shouldn’t I charge a flat listing fee?” It benefits my clients in several ways. Obviously, it results in my clients having more money in their pocket which enables them to be more flexible on offers made on their home and they have more money to put down on a new home! It just makes perfect sense to me and my clients! Never less advertising! Who else will advertise your home on the radio?
