Sell Your House Without a Traditional Real Estate Agent and Save
Do you want to sell your home without giving away thousands of dollars on a commission? Then WaLaw Realty is the perfect fit for you. We’re both agents and attorneys, and our unique business model saves you thousands of dollars. When you hire us, you get the essential services of an agent plus the legal counsel of a lawyer – and you save money in the process!
How much money? If you sell your home for $500,000, you’ll save nearly $10,000 when compared to a traditional 3% listing agent. Instead of working for a commission, we charge a low flat fee, and you save the difference. And because we’re both lawyers and agents, you get the expertise of a lawyer along with services that only an agent can provide, like a high-quality listing on the MLS.
Serving the Next Generation of Home Sellers
Our clients are savvy. They know they need to list their home on the MLS to get maximum exposure and top dollar. And they know how important it is to have a well-written MLS listing with high definition photos. But they don’t want to pay a full commission just to get it.
Our clients also appreciate the value of hiring a lawyer. As lawyers, we go the extra mile to make sure you understand the process and are fully protected. Got a question about the contract? We can answer it. Worried about title? We can work on it and hopefully clear it up so that a buyer won’t object. Selling a home is probably the biggest financial transaction of your life. It makes sense to have solid legal representation.
Ready to Take the Next Step?
When you’re ready to sell, we’re ready to help. Our flat fee includes everything below:
- Your home listed in the MLS
- Professional high definition photography
- Market analysis to help you set your asking price
- Syndication of your listing to other real estate related websites like Zillow and Trulia
- A professional “For Sale” sign
- Flyer box and full-color .pdf flyer
- An electronic keybox so agents can show your home without you present
- An open house for either brokers or the public (your choice)
- Legal counsel throughout the sale of your home, including explanation of legally required disclosures
- Contract drafting and negotiation
- Super-responsive, practical service (See our Testimonials)
Once hired, we’ll visit the property to give you our feedback on what else needs to be done. We can recommend other experts to help you, such as a home stager. If a buyer doesn’t have an agent – which is unusual – then you might have to host an occasional tour. But, if you prefer, we can do that for you at our low hourly rate. (Read more about our fees.)
Some people don’t have the time or interest to deal with buyers. That’s cool, and if that’s you we might not be the best fit. On a $500,000 property, though, plan on paying up to $15,000 to your listing agent, plus another $15,000 to the buyer’s agent. Before you decide, check out how we compare to other brokers — we’re better overall, and not just on price.
If you’re game for handling some of the logistics, we’ll work with you on the technicalities and negotiations – and you’ll save money.
