Flat Fee Real Estate Services PDF
  • Similar to real estate consultants, flat-fee real estate agents are agents who are either willing to provide full-service for a flat, fixed fee, or to reduce a full-service fee if you either participate in doing some of the work defined above, or if you will reduce the monetary financial risk to the agent by paying for some or all of the marketing costs in advance.

    Additionally, many flat fee agents will offer “a-la-carte” services on a “fee-for-service” basis. This means that they may charge fixed fees for specific services rendered and are categorized under the headings of ”listing services”, “administrative services”, and “marketing services.”
