Folks, before you ask for a discount on your commission from a Realtor®, please understand what you're truly asking them to do...and ask yourself this question: If your boss came to you and asked you to work overtime but wasn't going to compensate you for doing so, would you still do it?

Another day, another person who says realtors are overpaid and an unnecessary part of a transaction. I’m assuming that those who think this have either been watching too much Million Dollar Listing or think they know how to do it on their own. A few things to consider:

We don’t get to keep all the money we make on deals. You see 3% on a $200k home as $6k. We don’t. That commission is paid to us:

- Before taxes
- Before broker splits
- Before marketing
- Before board dues
- Before office bills
- Before all the other costs of doing business

Out of what’s left of our checks after all this, we can then begin paying for everything else. But wait, that’s not all!

We don’t get afforded a lot of the things you enjoy at a 9-5 job. We don’t receive:

- Employer healthcare
- Employee matched retirement accounts
- Paid vacations
- Weekends off
- Nights off
- Maternity leave
- Bereavement pay/leave
- Company car

We pay for all of this out of our own pockets. Yes, there are some Realtors® married to people working company jobs who receive some of these benefits. But the vast majority support our families on what’s left after our benefits are spoken for.

Yes, we did choose to sell real estate. It’s a career which allows virtually uncapped growth and income potential. But we also have to be available at any time of the day when needed. Whether it’s showing homes at 7pm, writing offers at 11pm or doing final walkthroughs at 6am. We’re there when we’re needed.

So before someone says we make too much money and aren’t really needed anymore, I encourage you to do this. Get your real estate license, start lead generating, find clients who trust you. Make sure you know not only what goes in the blanks of the contracts, but also what the parts of them say. Learn what happens once you write a contract, and what vendor partners are a good fit and who is a scam. Try and keep deals together when they’re about to go south with critical thinking skills while staying within legal parameters. Educate the clients about what’s going to happen after they close and what to expect in the couple years to come. Then listen as others tell you the money you’ve been paid is too much and they could do what you’ve done.

Exhausting, isn’t it?

Sincerely,

Your Realtor 💙

Redfin vs. Traditional Agent: A Tale Of Caution

Must read!! This is why you should use a traditional agent like myself before considering any other way to buy or sell your home!! Looking for the cheapest way is never the most time and cost efficient way!!

It seems like a no-brainer to go with Redfin. Often times you can save thousands of dollars if you elect to go with them. But this may not always be wise...

Demand is still high and supply is low! If you are considering selling your home now is a great opportunity to get top dollar! Contact me today to get a market analysis of your home!

If you are thinking about selling, now may be the time. Demand for your house will be strongest while there is still very little competition which could lead to a quick sale for a great price.

Don’t disqualify yourself without calling me first! Get into your new home with little to no money down! I work with several lenders that can get you qualified in minutes!

Many potential homebuyers believe that a 20% down payment is necessary to buy a home and have disqualified themselves without even trying, but in March, 71% of first-time buyers and 54% of all buyers put less than 20% down.

The #1 Reason to List Your House Today!

Many people believe that selling their house during “the spring buyers’ market” is the best thing to do. Their reasoning is that there will be more buyers than there are during the winter months and, therefore, their house will sell quicker and for a higher price. Historically, this made sense...
