Why Great Rate Realty?
Buying or Selling a Home is one of the biggest decisions you'll make in your life. We really feel that most people would prefer to have a professional agent at their side. Having an expert agent to guide you through the process can relieve some stress, and make your transaction as smooth as possible. Most people agree with this philosophy as the majority of homes are bought and sold through organized real estate. "BUT WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH?!".
Born out of a desire to realign the way fees are charged in the real estate industry, we seek to give you professional advice and guidance for a fee that we believe is more in line with what the value of a real estate transaction should be(in our humble opinion). As we have shared our message, we continue to receive support from the public. The general consensus from our clients is that real estate professionals should be paid for their services, however, those rates need to resonate more with their clients.
What does your brokerage charge?
We charge $4,995 to list all homes under $500,000. For homes $500,000 and over, we charge 1%. This is our listing fee commission.
In Alberta, we suggest that you consider offering a 1.5% commission to the buyers agent that brings the buyer to the transaction. You can choose to pay more or less when you list the home and we can discuss these options with you, however, our savings chart and slider is based on the recommendation of 1.5%.
Do you charge the commission up front?
No. Commissions are paid when a house is sold and the transaction is complete. You don't pay any commission if your home doesn't sell.
Are your listings advertised on the local real estate board and on the popular MLS® on www.realtor.ca?
Yes, and Yes!
Will other Agents show my home?
Yes. All real estate agents are required to show homes that meet their clients best interests. We feel that the recommended 1.5% commission offering in Alberta is still a very attractive rate to most real estate agents.
Why wouldn't everyone hire you guys?
We don't know, but we're working on it! Please tell all your friends!
