*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Why & How We List for 1%. Banks and Hedge Funds only Pay 1%.

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

 THis guy is THE worst! My wife and I hired him to list our house after seeing his 1% televeision ads. After all the additional fees that we were never told about, we ended up paying closer to 7%! Other realtors charge 6% so we were totally ripped off and would have been better just using another realtor who was more honest...what a thief!

Why & How We List for 1%. Banks and Hedge Funds only Pay 1%.

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

The above scenario is an impossible situation. The listing contract must match the numbers on the final closing package or the home cannot close. It’s that simple folks. Obviously a competitor trying to keep up with our new market. Well let’s show them how it’s done!  LOL

 Why & How We List for 1%

Many times homeowners are told false statements like the one above  in order to make them believe they must pay 6%. When in fact 6% is much higher than the average listing in 2013. We will clear up some of these myths.

Since the great recession started we have been leading Homeowner Advocates saving many homeowners via principal reduction, loan mods and short sales.  Today we welcome back traditional sales with open arms!

We felt this is a perfect opportunity to share the 1% program with the public. This program has been hidden from homeowners for the last five years being used by insiders and banks. Now we are bringing it to the homeowner. The banks and hedge funds only pay 1% to list their homes. Why shouldn’t you have the same opportunity? Why should the banks get a better deal than our friends and neighbors? We took a stand and said “List for 1% to everybody”.

We use the latest technologic tools to market you home to the masses. The internet has changed the game for listing homes. The internet has greatly reduced cost and time. We pass that savings on to you!

In the past we would have to advertise in several different newspapers in several different cities. Then we would have to advertise in many real estate books. The time and cost on this was astronomical we could only use a picture of the front and fax in the information, but a must before the internet.

Today the cost and time has been cut by 90% and we reach 1000 times more people. We pass this savings on to you.  Today our profit margin is much higher than before the internet at 6%. Top dollar for your home and low cost means more money in your pocket.

We work with first time home buyers, move up buyers and investors.  Just a few years ago buyers might be interested in 30 homes; well we would have to drive them to see 30 homes. Not anymore, the advancement of 25 plus pictures of the interior and exterior of homes allows buyers to like or dislike the house from the comfort of their own home or our big screen home viewer located in our conference room. No longer making trips to homes that are not desirable. Huge cost savings and spike in volume.  

Your home will be featured on the MLS, Zillow, Trulia, RedFin and many other sites that home buyers search. In fact over 86% of homebuyers use the internet to find their home. In today’s market the buyers are actually finding the homes on their own thru automated MLS searches set up on their own via Zillow Trulia etc.

In addition to our massive internet campaigns on these top real estate sites. We take it to the next level to create even more interest in your home. Our exclusive first time home buyer seminars, California Exodus events and our Investfest events attract buyers from all over the world. Once again the massive internet market and technological advances create more business for us at far less cost. We pass that on to you! 

Many agents have to pay a franchise fee and split commissions with their broker. This expense is passed on to you in higher commissions and junk fees. Some of these splits are as high as 75% to the broker and only 25% to the agent!  No wonder they have to charge you 6%.

If an agent cannot negotiate a good deal for themselves how are they going to negotiate top dollar for your home? We don’t have franchise fees or broker splits we pass our savings on to you. We have kept up with technology and the new era in real estate. Remember the old franchises that dominated the markets? Zillow and Trulia changed that.

Some brokers push 6 months contracts. No way. We are month to month.                                    You don’t like us fire us.

The New Era in ReaL Estate

The next 3-5 years the internet is going to change the way real estate is sold. Companies such as Google and, Zillow and Yahoo are partnering together to challenge Realtors to sell your home for top dollar for far less than 6%. The internet has changed similar professions like travel agents, stock brokers and loan officers.  

We are getting ahead of that curve now. This means you don’t have to wait for the future. The future is now we cut your cost, get you top dollar and put more money in your pocket.

We always stay ahead of the curve and the ever changing market. This is why we have been able to sell over 3000 homes since 1998. We share our insight with our clients so they can make informed decisions thats best for their situation. This is why our referral rate is so high.

The List for 1% program has had many exciting results the past 8 months. The joy of homeowners being able to avoid a short sale or homeowners in shock over how much money we put in their pocket  has been a welcome relief after five years of short sales and depressed homeowners. Now our sellers are ecstatic with their new found equity and have given us more energy to share this program with the masses.

Several of our sellers have sold for $25,000 - $120,000 over comps in the neighborhood with our List for 1% program.  What would you do with the extra $25,000-$120,000 in your pocket?”   Call us today 702.458.3999

Isn’t the Internet great?  You just read five minutes about our program where you probably would not spend more than two minutes reading this on our site? Just think how we can market your home so buyers find it more interesting than the one down the street. Call us today 702.458.3999  click link here for more info
