Default Thinking about selling a house or buy a new home?

Hello! I've been a member of KCSR for a long, long time, but this time I wanted to throw my name out there as a Real Estate agent. I've recently become a licensed Realtor and have teamed up with my [very successful] mother, working for Reece and Nichols. We currently represent 2 builders in new homes but also work in the resale market, in both KS and MO.

Please let me know if you're thinking about buying and/or selling, I'd love to chat and see what we can come up with!

Thank you,
Theresa Enright

I'm looking to buy a house either in Liberty, MO or the Blue Springs/ Lee's Summit area. I've been looking at Robertson's Construction and like their houses and such. Are these areas you can help in ?

I'm sure all new homes come with some flaws, luckily most come with a warranty.

The trick now is getting people to come do that warranty work, lol. Total Design Concepts has been absolutely HORRIBLE on getting back to us on replacing a section of our hardwood floor. It's getting to the point where I'm done calling and will be going to their place of business to talk to someone.

Which means she can make one thread to 'sell' her goods/services according to the rules.

I made sure I wasn't competing with a current sponsor. I have also tried to reach out to EA on two different platforms to see about sponsorship, but have not been able to get ahold of him.

Theresa, my fiance and I are in the market for a new home (currently renting an apartment) in either Lenexa (1st choice since we both work here) or Overland Park. If you have time, could you either PM me or reply to this post with some info? I appreciate it, thanks!

Thank you very much! After closing my first deal (thanks in part to KUWeatherman) and sitting at the model (147th and Quivira - come say hi!) for a month now, I feel much more confident in being a Realtor, but like you said, I have a partner with years of experience in case something comes up.

I'll be selling in the next 5 years in guessing. Was thinking about this, this morning and you were the first person that popped in my head as who I'd call when that day comes.

Thanks, Brian!! I appreciate that.

Keep in mind (everyone) it's a sellers market right now. There are TONS of people out looking and not much for sale. It's a good time to sell and get high dollar for your home.

I want more equity. Before I pay you and my closing costs I'd walk away with maybe $65k in equity. I'd like a bigger chunk to put down on my next home.

Wish I would have known this. Bought a house back in October and my real estate agent was a real schmuck.

What are your thoughts on flat fee realtors? I realize it's not your business model but I think it's starting to really catch on and I like that idea quite a bit more.

I haven't heard much about them, so I'll just give you my thoughts based on what I do know (you pay a flat rate for an agency to put your house on MLS, no advertising).

It sounds good in theory, your house is listed on THE listing service for Kansas Ciy, and yes, it will come up in our searches, but that's about it.

Advertising can be a big part of the game and the commission we earn goes towards the money we spent getting your house out there in front of other agents. Agents have weekly meetings within their offices where we discuss what houses we have for sale, what our buyers are looking for, what's getting ready to come on the market, marketing/advertising ideas, etc.

Another thing commission gets you is accountability and guidance. when we sign that listing agreement you become out client and we have your clients best interest at heart. We want you to sell your house quickly for the highest amount possible. (I'm not sure if you get any level of that with the flat rate listing)

I'd love to see more stats on flat rate listings vs. traditional commission listings - is it worth it? days on market?

Some people CAN get away with flat rate listing (i.e. Scooby), but not everyone understands Real Estate enough to go about it alone.

It's nice that there's another option out there for people, but it's just not right for everyone.

Reid, good luck on your sale! if I hear of anyone looking out there I'll certainly send them your way.

PS: I should have my MO license in 3-4 weeks! yay!!

See, I'm not convinced that a realtor sells a house. I'm convinced that an online listing with excellent pictures and a thorough description on every major realty site and MLS sells a house.

I didn't take suggestions from my realtor, all he really did for me was set up a predefined search with my criteria for MLS and open the door for me. Between my Dad and myself, we know far, far more about homes than the realtor did.

I have a background and a degree in advertising. I'm pretty confident that I could sell my house quickly. I'm the perfect candidate for a flat fee listing - I do all the work and then pay you $500-1000 to put my house on MLS and give me paperwork. That's all I need you to do, why should I pay you 3.5% of my homes value? You win because you're not tied up time-wise and can do far more volume, I win because I save money.

Nick, it really depends on the person... If you have pretty good knowledge of real estate and have some time and marketing skills. Go for it. It also depends on marker conditions. I have sold FSBO and with a realtor . Last it depends on your realtor some are lazy and let MLS sell it .., others have a huge network of people to help get it sold.
