Steven & Virginia Real Estate: Flat Fee Steve!

Working in conjunction with Redefy Real Estate, Steven is a flat fee Realtor® in Virginia.

What is a Flat Fee Realtor®?

Unlike a traditional realtor that makes a commission on sales based on the home’s price, a flat fee realtor will sell your home for a flat rate of $5,500*, no matter the price of your home. Flat fee realtors provide all the same services as traditional realtors such as in-home consultations, professional photos, a customized marketing plan and posting your home on popular websites and in the MLS.

Benefits of a Flat Fee Realtor®

  • Ability to understand the costs associated from the beginning
  • Preserve your home equity
  • Save time & money

Steven’s Process for Home Sellers

 

  • Firstly, Steven meets with you to discuss your needs and goals such as:
– Why are you selling?
– How soon would you like to sell?
– What do we need to do to get the property ready to sell?
– Should we bring in a stager?
– Should we get a drone shot?
– What is a good list price?
  • Once you decide to move forward to sell your home with Steven, signing paperwork is completed.
  • Next, a photographer will come to take pictures of your home for your listing.
  • Following the photographer, if necessary, is staging. Our stager has two options, they can rearrange you existing furniture, or bring their own furniture in for you to use.
  • Once your house is officially on the market, the next step is determining Showing Preferences. Typically showing requests last one hour. If you have pets, they will need to be managed during the showings.
  • Now, agents will be touring your home with clients. We prefer the seller to leave and give the buyer space to process and see themselves living in the home.
  • Following the receipt of an offer is contract negotiation. This is where the process really starts. We are going to engage and commit to a buyer. We are pulling your house off the market for a buyer and we need to make sure they are well qualified and motivated to buy the home. The offer we receive will give us a better understanding of our options.
  • Once an offer is accepted, and an inspection has been completed it may be necessary to make additional negotiations based upon the findings.
  • Closing on your home is the final step in the process. The papers are all signed and now you’ve officially sold your home.

Steven’s Process for Home Buyers:

  • As the first step, Steven will set up a meeting to get to know you better and establish your goals.
  • Before starting your home search you will need to find a lender and determine your pre-approved budget. Meet with multiple brokers to ensure you choose a lender that offers the most value for you.
  • Now that we have a better idea of what you are trying to accomplish and what you can do financially. We take everything we know to this point and put it all together for a very targeted search.
  • Next, we will set up a custom search to send you available properties that meet your qualifications.
  • Once you have chosen properties you are interested in, we will set up showings. There you will be able to take an in-person tour of the home.
  • When you find a home you would like to make an offer on, we will work together to put together the best offer possible.
  • After the seller accepts your offer, it is now time for a home inspection. Based on the findings, Steven will guide you through negotiating repairs and deciding whether or not a home is a good fit for you.
  • Preparing for your closing is the next step in the process. Steven has a network of resources that can help you complete all the necessary requirements in time.
  • Prior to your closing, you will have a final walkthrough of the home. This is to ensure the property is in the same condition that it was at the time of inspection and any negotiated repairs have been done.
  • Closing day. Today, you will sign all the final paperwork and get the keys to your new home. Congrats!
  • Steven will follow up to check-in and see how you are enjoying owning your new home.
