For many years, real estate agents have been paid a commission based on the price of the home. Usually, the agents get 6% of the value of the property, split between the two agents. Even though this has been standard practice in the industry for so many years, times are changing, and there are other options available.

Here at DUFFY Realty, we have put together a proven method that helps us sell homes in record time, at a cheaper cost to our clients. Instead of charging the high rates that are standard in the industry, we are breaking the mold by keeping it at a low flat-fee cost when you are working with our team.

Commission Costs Can Add Up!

How much will be paid to the real estate agent? If your home closes at the price of $200,000, then the real estate agents will get a whopping $12,000 in commissions! The commission costs just go up from there. $18,000 in commissions will go to the agents for a $300,000 home, and the numbers continue rising for the more expensive properties.

Not only are you carrying the burden of signing on a new mortgage and paying for closing costs, inspections, and more, but you also need to work these commissions into the totals. Instead of paying these expensive costs, consider looking for an alternative method that will save you money.

Save Thousands of Dollars

Choosing a flat-fee real estate agent means that you can save thousands of dollars in real estate commissions. Imagine what you could do with that money…

  • Remodel the kitchen or bathrooms
  • Put in new flooring
  • Invest in landscaping
  • Buy new furniture
  • Take the family on a vacation
  • Buy a car for your teenager

Thousands of dollars can go a long way to support your family and upgrade your home. There is no reason why you should be paying these expensive real estate fees when cheaper alternatives are available.
