4.5% Full Service Listings
It can be difficult sometimes in today’s Northern Virginia real estate market to make a profit or simple break even when selling your home. Finding a quality real estate agent in Northern VA to help you get your home ready for sale, market it properly, and prepare all the contracts is the key to a successful home sale. At Samson Properties, we do all that and more for far less money than most real estate agents. I want to help you sell your home for just 4.5% commission and market it aggressively.
Most real estate agents in Northern Virginia charge a standard 6% commission on homes they list. This means that 3% of the sales prices goes to the seller agent and 3% goes to the buyer agent. When listing your home with me and Samson Properties, the buyer agent gets 2.5%, but as a seller agent we only receive 2% commission. This allows us the opportunity to give your home maximum exposure to all the agents in Northern VA while saving you thousands of dollars. Check out the chart below to see how much you and can save selling your home with us!
Realtor Commission % Ex. List Price Commission Paid Savings
Jack Jenkins 4.5% $500,000 $22,500 Save $2,500 to $7,500
Realtor A 5% $500,000 $25,000 You Would Pay $2,500 more
Realtor B 6% $500,000 $30,000 You Would Pay $7,500 more
A lower commission rate doesn’t mean that your service will be less. In fact, we will market your home listing aggressively and provide many services that many Northern VA realtors just don’t provide.
The days of paying a Realtor 6% real estate commission are in the past. With the use of the internet, computers, and smartphones selling a home has allowed real estate agents to become more efficient and process transactions much faster. This means that as a Northern VA realtor, I am able to pass these savings onto homeowners like you and help you keep more of your home equity.Find Out How Much Your Home Is Worth!
