Port St Lucie Realty

Frequently Asked Questions

What areas does Port St Lucie Realty cover?

Port St Lucie. We believe a local Realtor® is best qualified to assist you.

What types of properties can be sold utilizing your services?

Residential properties such as homes, townhouses, villas and condominiums.

How much do your services cost?

We charge a flat fee of only $7,500 which is paid at closing. $2,500 is for the listing services we provide and $5,000 is paid to the buyer's agent. There are no upfront fees or additional fees added at closing.

Will agents working with buyers show my home if I only offer a commission of $5,000?

Yes, agents sell homes in Port St Lucie everyday where the commission is less than $5,000 (for example a $150,000 home with 3% buyers agent commission is $4,500). It's the same amount of work for an agent to sell a $150,000 home as it is to sell a $300,000 home, therefore a flat fee of $5,000 for the buyer's agent is acceptable. Also, agents can't avoid showing buyers homes due to the amount of the commission as buyers typically find the homes they want to view themselves by searching for homes for sale on the Internet, then they tell their agent which homes they want to view.

Can I offer the buyer's agent a commission of a percentage of the sale price like typical Realtors® do?

Yes, if you are more comfortable paying a percentage of the sale price to the buyer's agent that is fine. You will still receive our listing services for a flat fee of $2,500 which will still save you thousands of dollars.

How long do I have to list my house with Port St Lucie Realty?

Only 90 days. We realize most real estate agents attempt to have you list your home with them for 6 to 12 months, however we believe if you price your home correctly and properly prepare it for sale (cleaning, paint and landscaping) we will be able to sell your home for top dollar within 90 days.

Can I cancel my listing early?

Yes, you can cancel your listing agreement with us at any time, for any reason, at no cost.

Where will you advertise my home?

The Multiple Listing Service (MLS), Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia and numerous other websites including other real estate brokerages websites such as RE/Max, Keller Williams, Coldwell Banker, etc..

Do you negotiate with buyers agents when they make an offer?

Yes, we review all offers, give you our recommendations and negotiate on your behalf.

How do I sign the contract when a buyer makes an offer?

We will e-mail you the contract through DocuSign so you can sign it online.

Will you come to my house and complete a listing presentation?

No, we do not do listing presentations at your home. We do a listing consultation on the phone which is typically a 10 to 15 minute phone call where you'll talk with us about your valuation, selling timeline and any questions you have about our service or the home selling process in general.

The listing consultation comes with absolutely no obligation to list your home with us. It's just a chance for you to learn more about us and vice versa. Call us at (772) 678-2980.

How do I list my home with you if you don't come to my home for a listing presentation?

After we complete the listing consultation and you decide to list with us we will visit your home to take photos, install the yard sign and lockbox (if applicable) and have you complete the paperwork.

Do you hold open houses?

No. According to the National Association of Realtors®, fewer than 10% of homes nationally are sold through open houses. Most people who attend open houses are not qualified buyers. The typical real estate agent holds open houses as a way to find buyer leads, rather than sell your home. Also, all of our listings are on the Internet with photos so buyers can view them online. Open houses are a thing of the past and only used by Realtors® to obtain buyer leads.
