Flat Rate Realty, a premium-service discount
brokerage, is taking fee-for-service real estate to a whole new level. Consumer
attitudes toward the real estate market are shifting dramatically. The time is
now to take advantage of the changing climate and make it work in your favor.
As home buyers and sellers have become more informed,
sophisticated, and computer savvy, the role of the real estate agent is being
challenged. In some cases, the real estate agency’s cut of a home sale is
equivalent to as much as some people earn in a year, and to many consumers, this
is unacceptable. Consequently, more owners are attempting to sell their homes
without the aid of a broker. In today’s market, too often the broker is seen as
an unpleasant necessity.
There is a better way.
Flat Rate Realty is taking fee-for-service real estate to
a whole new level. Instead of charging a percentage commission for each
transaction, Flat Rate Realty offers an a la carte menu of services that home
owners can choose from. The more our customers do on their own, the more money
they can save.
Our Flat Rate Realty agents do all the traditional work of
an agent (negotiate price/terms, arrange for financing/inspections/satisfactory
closings) but we do something else. We allow home sellers to save
thousands upon thousands of dollars. It is no wonder that our services
and our quality sell themselves.
Our business model calls for smaller office staffs
compared to the traditional brokerages, lower overhead costs, and fewer fingers
in the profit pie. Efficiency, not redundancy is what makes Flat Rate Realty so
Just as paramount to our success, we painstakingly
maintain a first class image. From our truly artful signs and logos to the MLS
listing that comes free with our flat rate, we give our clients more than any
other discount real estate broker ever has. And our clients recognize that they
