SELLING YOUR HOME WITH STEVENS REALTY DES MOINES
Why we are the smart choice over any other full-commission Real Estate agency in selling your home?
Our goal is to provide personal service to assist you, the seller, in marketing your home and helping you save your HARD EARNED EQUITY. Through our "flat fee" program we provide all of the full service you expect from a full-commission agent. We assist you in determining the value and a starting price to list your home, we provide an estimate of proceeds so you know what it costs to sell your home and we negotiate offers coming from any buyers agent. Listing on the MLS expands your marketing and provides the seller the "power" of exposure to over 1,300 agents in our area with a direct link of your information to a buyer. Through the MLS, your listing appears on REALTOR.com a powerful public search engine viewed by many unrepresented buyers. Lastly, under traditional listing rules, you waive the right to continue marketing your own home or find your own buyer, but with our company, we encourage you to continue your own personal advertising on any public site such as Zillow to find your own buyer and with our help pay no commission.
