Sellers can choose from one of our two options:

Flat Fee Limited Service

Full Service Flat Fee Listing 

Are you a savvy seller that would like to handle your own listing, but want more exposure through MLS and syndicated websites?   

 

You may want to consider our Flat Fee Limited Service Option which is a blend of For Sale by Owner and Real Estate Agent services.

Are you planning on selling your home in the DFW area and would like the full service of an experienced dedicated realtor and want to pay all fees at closing?

 

You may want to consider our Full Service Flat Fee Listing option.

Plan Includes:

Flat fee of $500*


For those with experience in setting a market price, the process of selling, contracts, and negotiations, you can choose our Flat Fee Limited Service option. You get the benefit of MLS with a listing agent, but without the full service and extra benefits of a showing service or a lock box. Since there is not a lock box on the home, and your contact number will be listed in MLS, you will be responsible for fielding sales agent’s calls, scheduling appointments and being available to let the agents in to show your home. If you choose to use your own lock box, please verify on the TREC website that an agent is a current licensed agent in TX before letting them enter the property. *We do recommend that you offer a 3% buyer’s agent commission.




Listing Agreement


Within 24 hours of ordering the Flat Fee Limited Service option, a listing agreement will be electronically sent to you for review and signature. The listing agreement spells out the responsibility of each party.




Electronic Signatures


The listing agreement and any other forms you need to sign for us will be sent to you via electronic signature. We use ZipLogix Digital Ink Online Signatures for document signing. It is efficient and provides a level of security as all documents are logged when signed.




Listing Term, 6 months


The listing will remain in MLS for 6 months, unless you cancel earlier. Please note you cannot cancel an MLS listing if the home is currently under contract, as this is against MLS rules.




Property posted in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)


Your property will be posted in MLS adhering to all MLS regulations. We will update the status as your contract progresses, which you will need to keep us informed per the listing agreement.




Up to 15 photos in MLS

Contracts & Disclosure forms


We will provide to you the necessary contracts, forms and disclosures you will need to sell your property.




Buyer Leads


Your listing will feed into several different websites and because the Purple Tree Realty information is also included, if a buyer contacts us for information, we will send that person directly to you. If you can negotiate a contract with an unrepresented buyer, you can potentially increase your net proceeds by not paying a buyer’s agent.

See our list of Add On’s if you require us to write the contract for you.




Open House Notice


If you would like to hold an open house, we will post the date and time of two (2) open houses in MLS. The open house will then be advertised on other sites that display MLS listings.




One Time Review of Offer/Sales Contract


Even if you are an experienced seller, we don’t want to leave you struggling should you need some assistance. Therefore, if you would like us to review the initial sales offer presented to you by a buyer’s agent, we will review and provide you a summary. The buyer’s agent is representing the buyer and cannot, by law, answer your questions and give you advice.




Electronic Payment


Payment is accepted after the listing agreement is fully signed. We accept Zelle or Apple Pay.





Plan Includes:

Flat Fee of $3,000 OR 1% Listing Fee


Pay a flat fee of $3,000 to list your home ~OR~ For homes with a sales price of $295K or less, it makes more sense for the seller to go with our reduced listing fee of 1%. We're here to help you save money. We provide full service through the entire process, from listing through closing. It is helpful to have an experienced realtor guide you through the process. *We do recommend that you offer a 3% buyer’s agent commission. *$350 Broker Transaction Fee will be added to the Listing commission at the time of closing. *For difficult to sell homes (divorce-one selling party not cooperating, property not being kept up, etc.), we reserve the right to amend the listing agreement to increase our fees.

The Listing Agreement spells out the details of the listing, and the seller's and broker's responsibilities. The Listing Agreement will be reviewed and signed in person or using electronic signature.

Please note that in addition to your net proceeds, you will receive a refund from your mortgage lender for any funds remaining in your Escrow Account if applicable.




Full Review of Offer/Sales Contract


The buyer’s agent will send their client’s offer directly to us. Once received, we will provide a summary to you to help you make your decision on whether to accept the offer, decline it, or counteroffer.




Review the Buyer’s Inspection Report and/or Repair Amendment
