Discount & Flat Fee Real Estate Agent For Listings In Colorado

How to sell your home in Colorado and metro Denver and make the most money. How much do real estate agents cost?

List your home for a discounted flat fee with a full service Colorado Realtor and metro Denver Real Estate Agent.

 

Still, the most frequent amount charged by listing brokerages to list your home on REColorado, IRES, & PPAR is close to 6% in Colorado and metro Denver. Of this 6%, listing brokerages will offer to pay 2.8% to the cooperating broker, also known as the buyer's agent. The listing brokerage and listing broker will retain the remaining 3.2%. With an average home price in metro Denver close to $500,000 that has the listing agent walking away with $16,000 compared to my $5,000 flat fee.

Denver Realtor Christopher Gibson lists and sells home for $5,000 + 2.8% that he then passes through the 2.8% to the buyer's agent / cooperating broker.  See how this flat fee real estate model breaks down below for Colorado home sellers. Christopher Gibson never offers less than the 2.8% to Buyer's Agents because along with top notch marketing we want the price of the home isolated as the only variable in the home sale equation.

 

Discount Flat Fee Real Estate Listing Net Sheet In Colorado With & Without The Flat Fee Option Of Metro Denver Realtor Christopher Gibson.

Discount & Flat Fee Real Estate Agent For Listings In Colorado

Discount & Flat Fee Real Estate Agent For Listings In Colorado

As you can see this discount flat fee real estate Colorado listing model results in $11,000 of savings for a metro Denver home seller at a $500,000 sales price, but is this a case of "you get what you pay for"?

Colorado Realtor Christopher Gibson offers full service and luxury marketing for his discount flat fee real estate listing services.

  1. Discount & Flat Fee Real Estate Agent For Listings In ColoradoProfession photography through Virtuance including a floor plan
  2. Aerial photography to show the neighborhood, views, show yard benefits, etc.
  3. High quality flyers with the floor plan printed on the back
  4. 360 degree virtual walkthough for those out of town buyers
  5. In addition to the MLS, the listing will syndicate to all major websites and local agent websites including Realtor.com, Redfin, Zillow, etc. 
  6. Ability to list in the Colorado Springs MLS (PPAR) or the Boulder MLS (IRES) in conjunction with the Denver MLS (RECOLORADO), if deemed appropriate.
  7. Reverse prospect e-mail blast and active pursuit. Did you know we can see if agents have set up a home search for buyers that have criteria that fit your home listing? Did you know we can see who those agents are and contact them. I do that!
  8. A dedicated web url and web site like www.123MainSt.com that is included on all printed materials and for which I create a custom sign.
  9. Open houses hosted by partners or myself as desired.
  10. Showing coordination assistance from ShowingTime.com, one of the premium showing service in the United States; enabling seamless showing coordination with agents and a high level of feedback.
  11. Electronic lockbox which changes codes daily, and logs what agents visited and when they visited.
  12. Contract addition which allows you to cancel it at any time, risk free from any marketing costs I have spent.

If you are interviewing other metro Denver real estate agents I challenge you to find one who offers all of this without the flat fee option, let alone with it.

Many of the flat fee real estate agents will enlist themselves as Transaction Brokers, which means they do not offer any of the services below that Denver Realtor Christopher Gibson offers when he enlists himself as a Seller's Agent.

  • Promoting the interests of Seller with the utmost good faith, loyalty and fidelity;
  • Seeking a price and terms that are set forth in this Seller Listing Contract; and  
  • Counseling Seller as to any material benefits or risks of a transaction that are actually known by Broker.

Denver Realtor Reviews: Denver Real Estate Market Statistics June 2019 Conclusion

 

The real estate market within a 30 mile radius of Denver Colorado remains in seller's favor, but it has transitions towards equilibrium and slowed in buyers favor. Bidding wars are less frequent.  Homes that are not move-in ready are selling more slowly than they had, as more move-in ready options are sitting on the market longer. Seller have to price their homes more competitively to sell quickly.

Virtual Reality Home Buying In Colorado June 22, 2019

See more about my virtual realty 360 degree video service I offer to my home buyers here: http://www.realtyofco.com/Virtual-Real-Estate-Agent-Denver-Colorado/

I did 4 virtual reality home tours for the the week ending June 22, 2019. Our main search criteria is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom townhome with a yard under $400,000 in the Denver Metro Area.

 


The first virtual reality, 360 degree home buying tour was an Indian Creek Neighborhood in Denver townhome: http://www.realtyofco.com/property/6157166/

See all Indian Creek Denver homes for sale here: http://www.realtyofco.com/search/results/3f1/?&sort_lowest=true

I think the condition was a tad less nice than what you are willing to take on. Also, the 3rd bedroom in the basement may not be as functional as what you are looking for, as the 2 showers in the home are both en-suite and if somebody was using the basement bedroom they would have to walk up a flight of stairs for a toilet and through a bedroom for a shower. I really liked the neighborhood, overall location, and yard spaces.

 


The second virtual reality, 360 degree home buying tour was a LOWRY HEIGHTS CONDO in Denver: http://www.realtyofco.com/property/4760360 

See all Lowry Neighborhood in Denver condos for sale here: http://www.realtyofco.com/search/results/3f6/

This complex was pretty well maintained. There was not much living space. I really liked the ceiling heights. The kitchen finishes were just ok. The bathroom finishes were nice. All the different flooring types in the bedrooms were a bit odd. I really liked the 2 patios but neither really qualified for the yard for a dog. 


The third virtual reality, 360 degree home buying tour was a Cedar Ridge Townhome in Lakewood: http://www.realtyofco.com/property/9808230/

See all west Lakewood townhomes and condos for sale here: http://www.realtyofco.com/search/results/3f9/

This complex was a bit older looking. The windows on the outside were older but the windows on the inside were newer. It was not an open layout but had a generous dining space. The master suite was very nice with a lot of closet space. The back door from the kitchen only opens to a balcony. You have to go to the basement to get to the backyard. Currently the basement is not very functional.

I was worried there would be a lot of road noise from Iliff. But the road noise was not bad and only face a part of the home where you would not be outdoors. The home had a nice floor plan. It was very much an open concept. There were a lot of vaulted ceilings. I really liked the basement bedroom/bathroom and closet. The basement was very functional. The condition of the home was not good. This was much rougher than anything you guys are considering at this point in time. Also, the only access to the back yard was through the main floor bedroom and the yard was not fenced.

Virtual Reality Real Estate Agent In Colorado And Denver

Denver Realtor Reviews: What is a Denver and Colorado virtual reality real estate agent and how can a virtual real estate agent help you? 

Many home buyers are relocating from other states. How do they select the perfect home from a long distance? Even if you make a special trip to Denver and Colorado to choose a home you may not find it during that trip.

Many home buyers are busy professionals who can not drop everything to see a home that was just listed for sale in this fast paced real estate market.

In order to overcome challenges of home shopping from a distance or for purposes of providing speed and agility to busy professionals in the home search process I have self titled myself a virtual real estate shopper.

Check out the virtual reality, 360 degree video explanation of my virtual real estate agent services in Colorado and Denver below.

Don't forget to pause the video and pan around as I am walking to see some of the things I am talking about.

 

Virtual Reality Real Estate Agent In Colorado And Denver 

Virtual Real Estate Agent For Home Buyers In Colorado - Christopher GibsonI used to preview and film homes for home buyers with my cell phone, narrating the videos on all the pros and cons of how a home suits their needs and wants along with my perceived views on the resale concerns of the home. Recently I discovered the Insta 360 One X camera. This camera has taken virtual real estate shopping to the next level. I used to have to make sure that I swiveled around to capture every angle of the home with my cell phone but with the 360 degree camera makes it possible for the home shopper to pause the video and pan around the space themselves, giving the home buyer a truly immersive experience. 

Saving home shoppers time and providing as much information as possible in the decision making process is something I pride myself in doing. This 360 degree camera has taken this ability and desire I have to the next level.

What do I try to show in a custom virtual reality, Denver Realtor review, 360 degree video of a Colorado home for sale that you may not see online?

  • Virtual Real Estate Agent For Home Buyers In Colorado - Insta360 One X CameraHome surroundings and environment: What do the surrounding homes look like? Are the yards well maintained? Are there a lot of vehicles parked on the road? Is there conforming construction? Are you close to an undesirable industrial complex or a nice park? Is there any road noise? Is the home on a road with a lot of traffic?
  • What is the flow of the home? Is the layout functional? What are the bedroom sizes like? Is there dining space? How are the ceiling heights? Are any features that would make the home undesirable or difficult to sell in the future?
  • How much light does the home have?
  • How big is the yard?
  • What are the finishes like? Are there tile floors and stone counter-tops or linoleum and laminate, etc. 
  • What is the condition of the finishes? I will comment on the condition of the carpet, grout & caulking, as well as if there are any funky smells.

Additional services I provide to front range Colorado home buyers

  • Neighborhood scout reports to evaluate neighborhood crime stats, school stats, demographics, and income levels.
  • Rentometer reports to evaluate the rent rate of homes of interest
  • Thorough price opinions of homes of interest for appraisal and resale purposes

There is a real need for virtual real estate agents in Denver and Colorado. This can be a valuable time saving tool for Colorado home buyers or even the primary home search method.
