How much extra work do I need to do to sell my home when I work with WaLaw?

Very little. We provide all of the same services as a traditional agent, the difference is how we charge for those services and, in one case, when they’re provided. Our flat fee includes a specific set of services which are included. If a seller wants something beyond those set services we can do it at an hourly rate of $75 per hour.  If it’s something purchased from a third party vendor (like a professional video of the house), we do it at cost and never mark anything up.

There are a couple of notable differences with us.  One is that we don’t come out to see the house or do a market analysis until after we’ve been engaged. This is for efficiency purposes so we don’t spend significant time on clients that never hire us.

The second concerns buyers without an agent that want to see the house. Most buyers will have their own agent to show them the house.  But, occasionally a person calls who doesn’t have an agent.  This presents an opportunity for our client to sell the house without having to pay a buyer’s agent commission.  To be fair, this doesn’t happen all that often but, when it does, it’s a homerun.  If our client doesn’t mind, they can let the person in for the tour.  Or, we can do it at our $75 hourly rate (they typically they take about an hour).
