Too Flat Fee or Not to Flat Fee - Is That Your Question? The world of real estate can be a bit overwhelming at times. With so many nuances and intricacies to navigate, it can be hard to know where to even start. One of the more recent developments in the realm of real estate services is the use of flat fee listing services. If you're not familiar with this type of service, it might seem puzzling and even a little bit daunting. Fortunately, with the right company by your side, using a flat fee listing service can be simple and cost-effective. Here at GATES And GABLEs with CHOICE, we specialize in offering affordable flat fee listing services to our clients. We understand that selling a home can come with a lot of expenses, which is why our service is designed to help save you money without sacrificing the quality of service you receive.

If you're curious about how a flat fee listing service can benefit you, here are a few examples of things we can provide or help with:

1: Simplified Forms and Uploads When you work with GATES AND GABLES, the first thing we'll do is make sure you have and complete all necessary forms and upload all pertinent information to the local Multiple Listing Service (MLS). This is an essential step because it ensures that your listing will be available to all local real estate agents and their clients.

2: Broker Support Even though you're only paying a flat fee, you'll still have access to dedicated broker support while your property is listed. This means that you can ask questions or seek advice from a licensed real estate professional.

3: A List of Trusted Vendors To help you save you time and stress of hiring a vendor you don't know, we've compiled a list of trusted vendors who can assist you with various aspects of the home-selling process. Whether you need a photographer to take high-quality pictures of your home or a contractor to make some minor repairs, our list of vendors can save you time and ensure that you get the best possible service at a reasonable price.

4: No Hidden Fees At GATES AND GABLES CHOICE, we pride ourselves on transparency and honesty. That's why we never charge hidden fees or try to nickel-and-dime our clients. When you work with us, you can trust that the package price you see is the price you'll pay. We do have more items to purchase if you choose. But those are not necessary and the price will be listed on our Add-Ons and Extra menu if you are looking for more.

5: Upgrade Anytime. Finally, it's important to note that you can upgrade to full-service at any time during the selling process. So if you decide that you need more support or would like us to take over the process entirely, you can make that change without any hassle.
