At Edge Realty we give our clients the edge on the market by mainstreaming the real estate process and helping homeowners achieve their goals at a lower cost. Our sellers pay a flat fee and save thousands in commissions. They are able to apply those savings towards decorating, home improvements, or other investments.

Our sellers receive a property valuation, staging tips, a sign, lockbox, property flyers to print or share on social media, and an attorney to negotiate their contract.  If an agent procures a buyer for the seller, the seller pays the buyer’s agent a commission at closing.  We recommend the co-broker’s commission be between 2-3% of the sales price.  

The benefit of using our services vs. selling by owner is you increase your exposure and buyer reach. We also guide you through the process and simplify it for you.  88% of buyers purchased their home through a real estate agent (National Association of Realtors 2016).  As agents we use the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) to share information.  If most buyers use an agent, you will want to make sure your home is listed on the MLS since agents use this service day in and out to search for homes for their buyers.  If your home is not included on the service, buyers may miss it.

The next area you want exposure is the internet.  51% of buyers found the home they ultimately purchased online (NAR 2016).  34% found their home through their agent, 8%- yard sign, 4%- friend, relative or neighbor, 2%- home builder, 1%- directly from seller or knew seller, 1%- newspaper advertisement.  We offer, at no extra charge to you, your own website for your home.  This site includes its own URL and is showcased on over 130 different websites.  This will help your home reach more buyers.

*This offer is contingent upon the seller offering a minimum of 2% co-operative fee to a buyer’s agent.
