Can I sell my home myself?
Yes! Unlike traditional real estate, you reserve the right to show and sell your property yourself - if you sell your home yourself without the help of a REALTOR®, you pay NO COMMISSION! You still maintain the right to sell your own property.
Do I have to pay a "Buyer's Agent"?
Yes, a commission must be offered to a buyer’s agent. However, the commission amount offered is your decision. Any Real Estate Agent bringing a buyer who successfully closes on the sale of your property will be due the "buyer’s agent" commission. The buyer's agent commission will be displayed on the Realtor's MLS. The public can not view the Buyer's Agent Commission information - only the Realtor.
Can I make changes to my MLS listing?
Yes. Once we input your property information is uploaded into the MLS, you will receive a copy of the MLS listing. If there are any edits, please contact us as soon as possible so the mistake can be edited.
How long does it take to be listed in MLS?
When your all your listing forms are received the information is entered in the MLS system the same day. Once the information has been entered you will have an MLS number and all Realtors will find your home when doing a search.
How long is my property listed for?
The listing can be for up to 6 months or less if you prefer. You can cancel the listing at any time without penalty or charges. You can extend the listing for $199.00 an additional 6 months. Please call for details.
How do I price my home?
Alternative Realty can email you recently sold properties in your area “Comps” that will show similar homes sales, days on market, asking price and sold price so you a make an educated decision about the asking price.
Are there any hidden fees?
No. There are no Mickey Mouse fees involved.
