Our company serves almost all of New Jersey, except Cape May and Atlantic County.
We have moved out from under the old ways of buying and selling real estate. By not limiting our brokerage to conventional agreements, we are able to offer flexible options based on our clients needs.
We can list your property on MLS for an upfront flat fee. Our program allows you to choose additional services that cater to your needs. We also offer the traditional full service program at a discount.
Our company will help you pay for closing costs. By sharing 50% of our commission, we ease the burden for homebuyers.
Whether you're a buyer, seller, landlord or a tenant you will get the utmost customer service.
Not at all! Our company offers multiple ways to list your property. Our plans will give you the tools you need to make the most out of your money.
Listing for a flat fee means there is no listing commission. You only pay an upfront fee to list the property. Pay only buyer's agent commission if the buyer is represented. Pay no commission if the buyer is unrepresented.
There are 8 MLS's in New Jersey. (We belong to 6 of the 8.) Each MLS has its own market area. Agents pay dues to access each MLS; agents who want a broader reach for their clients may become a member of more than one MLS. Only licensed agents can gain access to MLS.
There is no national MLS. A property should be listed in the correct local MLS, not just any MLS.
No, only a licensed Realtor® can list on MLS.
Yes. Your listing will look exactly the same as any other listing. The buyer's agent will get paid the same amount of commission as any other listing on the MLS, so they have no reason to avoid your listing.
Your property will be listed in the appropriate MLS. Some properties in border towns can benefit from being listed in a secondary MLS. Some townships will fall into two MLS required market areas, if that is the case for your property there is no additional fee for the secondary MLS.
No, only licensed agents have access to MLS and we cannot share our log-in information.
No! We are happy to post any additional updates or open houses for your property at no extra cost.
There are too many to list. Once your property is listed on the local MLS it will syndicate to hundreds of real estate websites. This includes all major real estate sites, such as Realtor.com®, Zillow, and Trulia plus hundreds of individual company and agent websites.
Yes! The majority of sellers offer buyer's agents 2-3% for selling their property. In NJ commissions are always negotiable.
Yes! You retain the right to sell directly to buyers. But, you should always ask buyers if they are working with an agent and if they have previously seen your property with an agent.
No, there are no hidden fees or unexpected charges.
No, all the forms are free and available to download.
There is no commission to list your property using the Flat Fee Listing Plan. The total sales commission will be paid to the buyer's agent at closing if a buyer's agent sells your property.
No, if your buyer is not represented by an agent you do not pay any commission.
Licensed agents have to comply with all rules and regulations set by the Real Estate Commission and each individual MLS. We are required to use the forms provided by MLS and the New Jersey Association of Realtors.
Yes, you can cancel at any time and you will be unconditionally released from your listing agreement.
An unconditional release means that you are no longer bound by any of the terms of the listing agreement. In other words, you are released from the listing agreement and there are no “conditions”. If you choose, you can list with any agent immediately after our listing contract has been canceled.
If you cancel your order within 14 days of purchase and before your listing is submitted to MLS, you will receive a refund for the listing fee. A $25 cancellation fee will be deducted from your refund.
If you wish to cancel more than 14 days after your order is placed, but before the listing is entered, a refund cannot be issued. However, your order will remain valid and we can activate your listing at any time in the future.
After your listing is entered, we unfortunately cannot issue a refund.
No refunds will be given for services or enhancements that were provided, such as photography, home staging, or lockboxes that were sent to you.
No, we are acting as a transaction broker and not a seller's agent.
A transaction broker does not represent their client in a fiduciary capacity. A transaction broker primarily serves as a manager of the transaction, communicating information between parties. With that being said, we are still here for you every step of the way to answer any questions you have!
A seller's agent is responsible for representing the interests of the sellers. A seller's agent advises on price, negotiates offer, contingencies, and conditions on behalf of the sellers. The seller’s agent also has a fiduciary duty to the sellers.
Fiduciary duties generally include putting your client’s interests ahead of your own. This includes the duty to handle your client's information and affairs with loyalty and confidentiality, the duty to fully disclose all material facts to your client, the duty to fully disclose all purchase offers to the seller, and much more. These are not only legal but ethical responsibilities.
Unfortunately, FSBO listings attract mostly bargain hunters. It can also scare away local buyer agents who may feel that their commission is not guaranteed. Lastly, it will attract Realtors to continuously call you trying to solicit your listing.
We provide a company "For Sale" sign with a private extension to avoid the negative impression of "For Sale By Owner" and still allow you to get calls from buyers.
We provide a sign for your property at no charge, displaying your own private extension. This extension will forward the calls directly and immediately to your phone number.
We highly recommend using a lock box. Many times the property owner is not available when buyer agents schedule a showing with their client which presents an inconvenience to the agents and their clients and can mean missed opportunities.
It is often better for the owner not to be present during showings. Having less people present is the best way to minimize the feeling of overcrowding and making the house feel small. Buyers may also be more comfortable and feel like they can speak freely with their agent. Let the agent help the buyer to imagine the property as their own. Any agent that opens the lock box will be registered (date and time too). This helps track the number of showings and when an agent enters and leaves the property.
With 99% of buyers shopping for properties online, it is important for your property to give the best first impression through photos. Many buyers will make a decision on whether to schedule a showing based on photos alone. Professional pictures generate more traffic and buyer interest, therefore selling faster.
Homes staging works best for properties that are just about ready to go on the market. One of our staging experts will do a walk-through of each room and give you an analysis of what needs to be done to make your property more appealing to buyers. Our services include rearranging furniture and tips for decluttering. You will be using what you already own to transform each room. We will enhance each room, inviting buyers to envision themselves in the space. Home staging will prepare your property for the photographer as well as showings to buyers. This service in not available in all locations.
