New Leaf Real Estate was formed by two guys who were frustrated with the “Full Service” business model. Recognizing a need in the community for a provider that is willing to pass on to the client the savings generated by efficiencies of the World Wide Web, we formed this opportunity.
Passing on savings came about from several changes in the real estate industry. Buyers using the web, as opposed to the print, created two savings. The web is cheaper, better, more informative, easier to use and has the feature of being conveniently available. NAR reports that over 90% of buyers use the web as their source of information for finding their new home. Buyers are better informed, can eliminate homes by looking at pictures on the web, and are more efficient to work with.
By restructuring the pricing, to more closely align with expenses also created a significant savings. Traditional agents, even the best, sell 1 of 3 or 4 of their listings. That means the one home that does sell, has to pay for the expenses of all those that did not sell. The one that sells pays for all of those that do not sell. The upfront fee of $475 covers those expenses that a listing generates. By having each listing pay those costs, the one that sells does not have to over pay to compensate. Everybody saves money. The small fee when your home does sell, is an incentive to keep your agent goals and your goals the same – your home selling.
We have been able to keep expenses low in other innovative ways, passing on even more savings to you, our client.
The single focus of New Leaf Real Estate is to meet your goals. We have created a marketing plan that is general enough to use as a template, flexible enough to customize to your individual situation, and one that works. We have established points within the plan that we get back together to review your listing, review the market, and revisit the strategy of selling your home. Your agent will go over the plan, customize it for you and give you a copy of the marketing plan at the listing appointment.
