Broke-er than the average BeltLine Broker (Yay, You!)

Who doesn’t want to live in BeltLandia with amenities like Ponce City Market, Historic Fourth Ward Park, Krog Street Market, and, of course, the trail that connects them all?

So for those looking to sell their home near the Eastside Trail, it is somewhat of a foregone conclusion that the Buyers will come a-knockin’. After all, you’re living in the hottest seller’s market in Atlanta.

As a Broker specializing in working with home buyers and sellers in this prized slice of infra-culture, my keen insights into the obvious reveal that some of the hard work on the listing side has been eliminated.

Since the sales will most likely come quicker and thus make my job easier, why not pass a hunka burning love on to the seller?

Take a look at this map of the Eastside Trail corridor. Are you looking to sell in the blue shaded area? Yes? Then we should talk.

Hire me as your listing agent, and I’ll do the deal for a fixed commission of $6,000 on the listing side. At the same time, I’ll offer a typical split on the selling side so buyer’s agents will stay motivated to show the property.

With this commission scenario, the net to you as the seller can be much more than the typical real estate transaction.

To illustrate let’s take the average sales price in this area from the past six months. The usual commission paid to the listing agent on a $588,122 sales price would be $17,644, or ½ of a 6% total commission. Subtracting my $6,000 commission from this hypothetical sale means the hypothetical seller gets to keep $11,644 that would otherwise be paid in commissions!

This may mean I’ll be broke-er than the average BeltLine Broker, but I’m sure to be richer in friendships, right? And let me assure you that my discounted commission won’t mean average service for you. Here’s what a recent Cabbagetown client had to say:

Burke helped to easily maneuver the challenges of selling a unique loft-space in The Stacks. With his experience and knowledge, the process was very smooth and stress-free. In addition, he was extremely helpful in providing coaching and troubleshooting while navigating through the selling process.  ~ Brian
