3k Flat Listing Fee

The real estate industry standard has typically been a 3% selling office commission. Recently some companies started offering 1% commission to list a home. For my clients, I offer a flat $3k listing fee no matter what the size of home or what the sale price is. I offer the same great full service to all my clients.

  • Professional photography
  • Marketing Materials
  • NWMLS & Zillow listing
  • Staging Consultation

If your home has a gorgeous view or is waterfront property I will most likely suggest obtaining drone aerials or videography. These services would be an additional charge.

Below is a breakdown of what it costs to sell and what net proceeds would look like on a sale. Feel free to contact me to help you with the specific calculations on your specific home.
