What is a “Pricing Strategy Advisor”?
A Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) is a certification issued by the National Association of Realtors acknowledging that a Realtor qualifies as a specialist in pricing properties, creating CMAs, working with appraisers, and guiding clients through the misperceptions they often have about home values. [CMA stands for Comparative Market Analysis.]
How is it that you can offer such low commissions?
Jesse Lane Realty takes full advantage of all the latest software to streamline business activities. Clients must still offer buyer agents a commission via the MLS to entice those agents to show the property, however, clients make the final decision regarding how much to offer buyer agents.
Do you carry Error and Omission (E&O) Insurance?
Yes, however, it’s notable that in over 30 years, I have never been named in a lawsuit as a result of any real estate transaction. I believe in the old adage “An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure!” – Benjamin Franklin
What Bay Area counties does you serve?
Properties in any county that borders the bay can be served: San Francisco, Marin, Solano, Contra Costa, Alameda, Santa Clara, and San Mateo counties. The currently advertised seller-side commission for Stellar Full-Service applies for those counties. If your property is beyond this area, give me a call to see if I can help in some other way to save you sale commission dollars.
You mention that some properties may not qualify for the advertised commission rate. Could you be more specific?
Single family homes and up to 4-unit apartment buildings will likely qualify for the advertised commission rate for Stellar Full-Service. Properties which won’t qualify include mobile homes, mixed-use properties, vacant land, and other exceptions. Please contact me to learn if your property qualifies. Even if it does not qualify for the advertised commission, I still may be able to help you save money.
What happens if a buyer unrepresented by an agent makes an offer (or I find my own buyer)?
Dual representation is legal in California. My office would need to assist that unrepresented buyer and would then earn the commission offered by the seller to MLS buyer agents (in addition to the advertised listing-side commission). Still, it may be best for the buyer to obtain their own agent. Either way, the total commission paid at close of escrow is the same.
