Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions commonly exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to resolve it without the help of a CPA? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it might be unwise to consider selling real estate without the assistance of a professional Realtor®.
Realtors® are members of the National Association of Realtors®, which means that we subscribe to its strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. We understand the intricacies and the valuations of the local markets; we know the hazards and risks of complex transactions; we increase the odds for a safer, more profitable, and smoother transaction. Our responsibility is keep you well informed and apply our negotiation and problem-solving skills for your best interest. Our greatest benefit to you may not be when things go well, but when we face difficult obstacles or uncommon challenges.
By law all real estate commissions are negotiable. What is your agent charging to sell your home? How much of a budget is built-in for effective marketing? How much of that commission is for the buyers brokerage? If one agent’s commission is higher than another, do you see added value in what they are offering? This is an important test. Some agents ask too much for the true value they return to you, and some agents offering the very lowest costs are really the most overpriced; they offer no real value at all! We believe our premium services justify the highest market-rate commissions. Still, we have chosen to discount our services to you and make our money through more sales and attracting the finest clients. This is a win-win!
Bigger Isn’t Better
When was the last time you received the best service from the biggest company? Many once-personal companies have outgrown their ability to give attentive, flexible, and personal service. There are substantial benefits to having a locally-owned team of people working for you rather than a nationally managed “associate.” We are heavily invested in ensuring you are completely satisfied with our people and our services. We are accountable to our local business communities for integrity and dependability. Without living up to these standards we would be put out of business.
When you choose to work with The McCreith Team and Bella Casa Real Estate Group, your commission money stays right here, in our local communities; it is not sent off to support Austin Texas, Toronto Canada, or to a multi-national company on the east coast.
The McCreith Team will market your property with sophisticated and attractive design, using proven contemporary technologies, resulting in a prominent presence in the marketplace. We believe we offer better marketing, more advertising, a better internet presence than any other service in the area.
We take online marketing seriously. We understand that our primary mission is to sell your property. We know the importance of striking and effective visual marketing to gain that opportunity for you. We also know that professional values and practices will produce success for you and for us. If we accomplish our core mission, which is about you and your property, our company will continue to be successful. Some have this backwards, as if real estate promotion is really all about greatness of the agent or the company. While real estate law requires our company information on all ads, the message is primarily about your property!
