What makes List4LessKC different?

Buying or selling a property in the KC Metro? Excellent!

As you know there are lots of options when it comes to a real estate agent in the KC Metro, and you’ve got a decision to make. List 4 Less KC is the agent brand for Neil Sickendick, a registered Realtor with 395 Realty.

If you’re looking to sell your KC Metro house List 4 Less KC and 395 Realty can save you THOUSANDS. Where a traditional listing agent would charge a 3% fee, we only charge a flat fee of $3,000 or reduced commission of 1% (homes over $400k). For a $400,000 house, that’s a savings of $8,000. For a $600,000 house, that’s a savings of $12,000.

That’s real, substantial money in your pocket. Money you can use to pay for moving expenses, put towards the down payment in your new house, or complete necessary remodeling! Here’s a visualization of what you can expect to save:

SALE PRICE Traditional 3% Agent My Fee SAVINGS FOR YOU
$200,000 $6,000 $3,000 $3,000
$300,000 $9,000 $3,000 $6,000
$400,000 $12,000 $4,000 $8,000
$600,000 $18,000 $6,000 $12,000
$800,000 $24,000 $8,000 $16,000
$1,000,000 $30,000 $10,000 $20,000

What’s the catch?

I get it, it seems odd that where most agents charge 3%, we only charge the flat fee or reduced commission rate of 1%. There’s got to be a catch. Right?

There’s not…

The bottom-line is, selling a home today is a lot different than the pre-internet days. Getting your listing exposed to potential buyers is far easier than it used to be. Market statistics, data, and trends are easily accessible by all listing agents, and marketing efforts are fairly standardized and very successful. Being a seller’s agent is still a lot of work, and ensuring that YOUR best interests are maximized requires an expert with a heart for people and a passion for real estate. But, it can be done for far less than 3%.

That’s where I come inYou get ALL the same great service you’d expect from a 3% agent, for THOUSANDs less:

  • Pre-listing consultation/walk-thru of the home, including discussion on any improvements that should be made prior to listing
  • A “CMA” (comparative market analysis) – a process whereby we review similar, nearby properties that either currently listed, pending, or sold and use those “comps” to arrive at the right listing price for YOUR home
  • Professional photographs of your property
  • Listing your property on the MLS, getting it in front of millions of potential customers via their buyer’s agent AND all the popular websites like Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia, etc.
  • Handling of all showing scheduling for potential buyers, open houses (if desired), working with buyers/buyer’s agents, etc
  • All the paperwork, contracts, scheduling of closing and so on…

Don’t believe me? I encourage you to interview traditional agents. Ask them exactly what they will provide to you in the listing of your home, and ask them if they will do it for 1%. When they say “no,” give me a call and let me know if anything they promised was not on the list above. I will tell you if I provide that same service (if it’s even valuable), and we can discuss if it’s a better option for you to save 2%. No pressure. No B.S.
