You can rest assured that you're going to work with one of the top realtors in the region
when you sell your home with Glass House Real Estate.
We have a proven track record of selling homes faster and for more money than the average agent. We focus our marketing and resources on marketing your home, not ourselves.
With our full service listing services, we'll also help you keep more of your money since you'll only pay us HALF of what you would pay a "traditional" agent. Traditional real estate agents typically charge a 6% commission (which is generally split equally between two agents). Glass House Real Estate charges a 4-4.5% total commission. Our fee is only 1.5%.
Did you know that fewer than half of all real estate agents pay to have their listings featured websites like Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com? Most agents employ traditional real estate marketing methods like signage, postcards, and newspaper ads to market their own brand; the buyer of your home is not next door, they are online!
What's up with those terrible pictures? Most agents do not extend additional efforts to make your home look appealing to buyers. In fact, less than 10% of all agents professionally stage and photograph their houses for sale. Why pay 6% for a traditional agent if he or she is not going to help your home look its best?
You may have difficulty checking in with your agent to discuss the status of your home because chances are they are out looking for their next client. Your agent may only update you when it is convenient for them. Few agents are as technically savvy as Glass House.
We never charge "admin fees" or "additional commission" that many "traditional" agents charge, usually between $250-500. These are junk fees added by real estate companies to increase revenue and does not provide the seller any value.
Today's home buyers begin their search online. We know web advertising is a critical component of a home marketing plan, so we ensure that we pay for all of our listings to be featured on popular real estate websites including Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com. Your listing will also be featured as a Facebook ad and on daily classified sites.
In a crowded marketplace, simply putting your home on the market won't get you top dollar. All of our listings include professional staging and professional fusion photography. This is a free service to our clients valued at over $1,000. And if your home needs minor improvements, we have people for that too.
You and your agent are a team, and an open line of communication is vital. You will always know where you stand when you sell with Glass House Real Estate. We provide regular reports on how many people are viewing your home online, how many people are visiting your home in person, and what other agents are saying about your property.
At Glass House Real Estate, we do NOT charge you an admin fee, retainer fee, or early termination fee. Our listing commission is 1.5% of the sales price. We don't consider it a discount, we reduce our overhead cost and pass those savings on to you. If your home does not sell, we get paid nothing.
