We Really Are Different We'll List Your House For Less, and That's That

Real Estate Agency fees have been too high for too long. We are proud to lead the way locally with our reasonable fees. We don't believe in charging more than is necessary to serve you in the best manner possible. Whether you're listing a condo or a sprawling estate, we will list your house with all of the marketing needed to sell it. 
How do we do it for 1%? We are an efficient, streamlined brokerage, and we think 1% is enough for us. * Remember, this is for listing your house and does not include payment to the buyer's agent if there is one involved. Our 1% listing model provides modern, efficient, full-service listing representation on all major home search websites and phone apps, including MLS, and subsequently Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, Redfin, Homes.com, etc... and all other websites with an IDX Feed from MLS. 
We have relationships with vetted companies for any of your selling needs, including lending professionals, home inspectors, contractors, cleaners, movers, title and escrow, property management companies, and industry-leading photographers. 
Choosing your listing agent is a big deal. We get that. Choose us, and we will not let you down.
*1% commission for our Full-Service Listing is for the listing side only. It does not pay the buyer's agent if there is one and applies to a listing price of $200,000 or more. 1% commission does not apply to vacant land, commercial, or industrial real estate. 

Resources for Sellers To Get Started on the Right Foot!

Studies show that sellers who use a real estate agent generally get a better price than those who choose to sell the home themselves. As an agent, it is our job to stay up to date on the latest market trends and fluctuations. Utilizing an agent means no surprises during the selling process, as you will have the latest information at critical junctures in the process. Let us put our experience to work for you to ensure you get the best price for your home!

Prior to listing your home, you'll want to ensure everything is in good showing condition before buyers start to tour the home. Here are some important things to consider:

Now is the time to put things in storage, clean out the basement and garage, and start preparing to show your home. Remove any family photos, personal items, and valuables. Remember, you want buyers to see themselves in your home!

Touch up both interior and exterior paint.

Clean or replace the carpet in areas with heavy wear.

  • Remove or pack any clutter
  • Clean kitchen, including refrigerator and oven
  • Clean bathrooms, including showers
  • Clean ceiling fans
  • Clean windows and window sill and frame
  • Cobwebs and dusting
  • Clean floors
  • Professionally cleaned carpets are always a good idea
  • Don't forget about the garage
  • Keep the interior and exterior clean and odor-free

Many professional house cleaners offer services to make your home listing-ready easily. 

Curb appeal is very important. Make sure the front of the home is clean and appealing. You want to make a strong first impression!

Trim any overgrown bushes, mow the lawn, and keep the driveway free of leaves and pine needles. Having the exterior of the home professionally washed, gutters cleaned, and roof treated is great for pictures and makes a great first impression.  

Once you've completed these steps, you may want to hire someone to perform a pre-listing inspection. Buyers will be hiring professional inspectors, too; this is your chance to find and address problems before it's time to sell.

Moving is the worst, but professional movers can make it much easier. Many professional moving companies offer full-service packing and storage. 

Skinny Wimp Moving in  Eugene has made moving a quick, painless experience for some of our previous clients. We have found their customer service to be much stronger than their name suggests.

You'll need to plan to have something to do during the time potential buyers visit your home, and it's best to take any cats or dogs with you so buyers and their agents can freely walk around. Any jewelry or other valuables that can be picked up should be removed or stored in a secure place. Store firearms in a locked, secure location. 

 If initial offers don't meet your expectations, don't dismiss them immediately. You can always negotiate. You may need to consider lowering your asking price if months go by with few or no offers. However, by working with your agent, you will be able to arrive at a price that works for all parties.
