Frequently Asked Questions

Can I cancel my listing and list with a different REALTOR®?2019-02-19T16:58:36-05:00

You can cancel our service at any time and list with a different REALTOR®. Some sellers think we are not a REALTOR® when in fact not only are we a REALTOR® but also a Broker. We have negotiated and closed over a thousand real estate transactions. It takes many years of experience and college education to become a Real Estate Broker.

Am I able to access the MLS?2019-02-19T17:00:11-05:00

The only people who have access to list in the MLS are Real Estate Brokers and Real Estate Agents.

We are your listing broker and we list your property in the appropriate REALTOR® MLS for a low flat fee. The advantage is you save thousands of dollars in commissions and you are listed in your local MLS. Your listing looks no different than any other listing.

Will buyers see my phone number on the listing?2019-02-19T17:02:49-05:00

Unfortunately the MLS will not allow your phone number to be displayed to the public. The MLS will only display the listing Broker/Agent phone number. Your contact number can be in the MLS but it is only available for agents to view.

What is your success rate?2019-02-19T17:04:14-05:00

Our success rate is 100% when sellers follow our advice but ultimately your success rate will depend on what you do. If you over price your property there is nothing we can do to make it sell.

Do I have to pay a buyer agent?2024-03-20T08:44:05-04:00

All commissions are negotiable. Historically sellers pay 2% to 3% to the buyer agent but this is not required. Some sellers pay above 3% and offer an incentive/bonus to buyer agents to help sell their property. Some sellers choose to pay less than 3%. It is your choice what you pay to a buyer agent. You can also pay a flat dollar amount rather than a percentage.

How is this different from a regular listing?2024-03-20T08:48:26-04:00

The Quick answer is there is no difference.

Some sellers think they are getting a different kind of MLS listing. This is not the case. We list your property on the same local MLS as all other agents. The big difference is instead of charging a 3% listing commission we charge a low flat fee.

Our flexible pricing allows you to choose which listing service best fits your needs. We are your listing broker. Your listing will look the same as all other listings. The fees you pay are not listed or displayed on the MLS. 

Do agents show flat fee listings?2024-03-20T08:57:49-04:00

Yes agents show flat fee listings. Your listing will look no different than any other listing. The only commission agents care about is theirs not how much you paid us. Also the listing agent commission is not posted on the MLS so nobody will know what you paid us. You decide how much you are going to offer the buyer’s agent. 

What if I find my own buyer?2024-03-20T09:03:55-04:00

We forward all buyer leads directly to you the seller. You are also permitted to place your phone number on the sign to attract buyers directly to you. If you sell to a buyer who does not have an agent then you save paying a buyer agent commission. If you choose to be part of our Easy Offer Plan then there will be $1,000 commission paid to Team Results Realty at closing. The Easy Offer Plan is optional and the $1,000 can be paid by the buyer. If you are part of our Easy Offer Plan we will help the buyer jump through all the hoops and get to a closing. If you choose not to be part of our Easy Offer Plan then the buyer is own their own to figure it out. At no time will we represent the Buyer. We only represent you the Seller.

What is the Easy Offer Plan2024-03-20T09:13:19-04:00

First the Easy Offer Plan is completely optional for our sellers. You will choose if you want to be part of the Easy Offer Service but we feel there is a great benefit to the plan and another way to save on excessive real estate commissions.

If the Seller selects to be part of the Easy Offer Plan. The Sellers listing will be displayed on Team Results Realty website and available for buyers to make direct offers to the seller. The Easy Offer Plan applies when a buyer makes an offer without a Real Estate Agent and the buyer is representing themselves. This means there is no buyer agent commission.

Team Results Realty will process the sale for the unrepresented buyer. (The Buyer Represents Themselves) All Required Paperwork, Inspections, Disclosures, Closing Documents, Lender Requirements and any other necessary forms or duties to help the buyer will be done by Team Results Realty. We have found that even though a buyer wants to represent themselves there is still considerable work we need to do to help the buyer and process the sale to a closing.

For this work Team Results Realty will be paid $1,000 Flat Fee Commission at closing by either the Buyer or Seller or shared between Buyer and Seller as negotiated in the purchase contract. Commissions are negotiable and can be paid by buyers or sellers.

If the Buyer is NOT REPRESENTED by a Real Estate Agent then any buyer agent commission you offer does not apply. The only closing commission will be $1,000 to Team Results Realty which will be negotiated in the contract.

If the buyer IS REPRESENTED by a Real Estate Agent then they simply cannot do our Easy Offer Plan and this program will not apply. If the buyer has an agent Team Results Realty WILL NOT be paid $1,000 commission at closing. The commission to the buyer agent will be as agreed in the listing or as negotiated in the purchase contract.
