Our fees to most people seem too good to be true so we get this question a lot. And the short answer is no. The long answer is nooooooooooo. Sure we could charge more, but what most excites us is doing something remarkable in the market and making a significant contribution toward our mission to enrich the lives of all people. Here is a our story in a nutshell.
We saw in the antiquated real estate industry a lot of waste and realized it was long overdue for a move into the 21st Century. So we put the most brilliant computer and internet geeks together with our veteran real estate experts realizing something magical was bound to happen. Every conceivable innovation and technological efficiency was put into practice with the sole intention to pass the savings on to our clients.
But if you just can’t bear the thought of saving all that money by paying a fair price for listing your home, we do have another option for you. Our company supports a charity which funds housing and other life necessities for the less advantaged – namely in Guatemala and other 3rd world nations. If you feel you must insist on paying more for our services perhaps we could entice you to join us in contributing to the betterment of our dear friends in Quatemala.

Many homeowners feel overwhelmed at the thought of all the paperwork associated with buying and selling a home. But really its not all that complicated. Okay, admittedly some of why we can say that is because we have been exposed to thousands of these transaction. But seriously, even the real estate neophyte can find that most everything is quite rudimentary if they can just take a deep breath and look over the forms. The mystique of the paperwork is likely to vanish and soon you will become a real estate paperwork expert. Let us break it down for you.
(1): The first set of paperwork encountered in the sales process after you list your home will be the offers you receive to purchase your home. This paperwork will be prepared by whatever agent is representing the buyer whether it is one of the professional staff at ListWise or another agency. Such offers will then be presented to you by the buyer’s agent at which time you can of course ask any questions for clarification during the time in which you are considering the offer. And in instances where ListWise is not representing the buyer and you feel that the agent is not making things clear, you can always contact our live support team to ask any questions for clarification. And in response, you will also often want to write up a counter offer which is used to essentially accept the offer but with a few changes to the specific terms (i.e. price, timing for the close of escrow, what’s included with the price, etc). ListWise will provide you a blank counter offer form on which you merely list a set of bullet points outlining each of the changes you are requesting to the original offer. To see an example Click here.
(2): Once both parties agree on the terms, the agreement is then made official with signatures from both parties. From here we must then open escrow (see FAQ: Who will we use for Escrow / Title?) Your escrow officer will work directly with you to ensure that all the escrow procedures and documents are filled out and submitted properly. In addition there will be certain seller disclosures that will be required to be filled out by the seller to be given to the buyer. In the absence of a Listing Agent, the buyer’s agent will be required to ensure all these forms are filled out and submitted to ensure compliance with proper disclosure requirements. Any questions you have can and should be answered by the buyer’s agent but of course too if you would like further assurance you can contacts our support line at any time.
Darn skippy we will. And not your ordinary every day variety of sign either. Each for sale sign is custom to the home with its own unique 4 digit pin that anyone who is interested in getting immediately pictures, pricing, and all the listing details of your home can text to our 855-ListWis (547-8947) number and receive back a link which will showcase your home right on their smart phone. If you’re curious what that looks like, try it now and use “0001”.
If you do, you will also notice that our system will automatically follow up with every inquiry to see if the house was indeed a fit for the buyer and encourage them to schedule a viewing. Compared to the all too often empty brochure box, or worse yet the ones filled with flyers that are wet and warped with dew and which are quickly forgotten by the people who grabbed them and tossed into their back seat, our method is far preferable. We maximize the probabilities they will follow through with seeing your home and never run out of flyers.
