Frequently Asked Questions
You will save money, get to do everything (besides the closing) from the comfort of your own home, and feel good knowing that 10% of every commission we earn gets donated to a local charity helping needy families with housing. We will also provide professional photos and a video walk through that get's placed as the first picture on your Zillow listing. This drastically increases views of your home. We will also market your house on all of our social media accounts. Showing availability will be set by you in advance, and showings will be approved or denied by you via text. No need to have us playing phone tag between you and the buyer's agent. These are just some of the ways we provide value and convenience to you.
Just 1.5% of the selling price which is half as much as traditional brokerages, plus 3% to the buyer's agent which is standard. That’s up to $4,500 in your pocket on a $300k home. Save another 1% if we represent the buyer too.
We started our brokerage from the ground up with the goal of keeping overhead low, and removing non-value added parts of the home selling process. This makes us more efficient and we pass those savings on to you.
The most knowledgeable member of our team for your area will utilize comparative market analysis software taking into account recent sales, market trends, and adjustments for your specific house such as renovations you made or repairs that are needed. This can be accomplished by an in home visit, or phone calls and/or texts with you combined with reviewing photos and videos from our professional photographer. Whatever you are most comfortable with. Of course, the listing price is ultimately based on your personal situation, timeline, and goals.
No. Open houses are a great way for unqualified passive buyers, or just curious neighbors to see your house, and especially good for listing agents to gain more prospective buyer clients. Most qualified and mortgage pre-approved buyers will already have an agent to show them your house. If they don’t, we will represent them but not waste your time until we determine they are legit. We know how annoying it is to clean up your house last minute and pack up the kids and dog for a showing for a non-serious buyer.
We will use electronic signature software so you can sign from the comfort of your home at your convenience. We will provide clear instructions or walk you through it on the phone if need be. Or just text us questions.
Not until you sell your house at the closing (the very end when you sign all the paperwork and hand over the keys). Even then it is rolled into the closing costs and comes out of the funds you receive from the buyer. You won't ever have to pay us via check, or credit card, or paypal, or venmo, or whatever people are using nowadays.
No, you can fire us and hire a new agent.
FSBO's are fine if you are super confident in the process and are not in a hurry to sell. We've done it before in fact. But with VendCasa you will still save money and let us worry about the legal stuff. Plus your house will be on the MLS, all the real estate websites & apps that people use, and marketed on all of our social media accounts.
We charge half the typical listing commission, provide the highest impact services to sell your house, do everything virtually, AND donate 10% of every single commission we get to a local charity helping needy families with housing.
