How to Save Thousands When You Close on a Home in DFW

When you’re selling your home, it’s definitely an understatement to say that there’s a lot going on. From staging your home before the constant stream of tours to negotiating prices between brokers and agents, there is plenty on your mind that makes selling your home into nearly a full-time job on its own. In the process of selling, it can be easy to forget that there are things you can do to save a tremendous amount on closing costs, namely working with a broker who doesn’t charge a listing commission (like Team Nelson!).

Sell Your Home Commission Free

So what does it mean to sell your home commission free? Simply put, it’s when your listing broker and agent don’t take a commission from you when you sell. In an ordinary home sale, the seller is responsible for a 6% commission to be split up among listing brokers, listing agents, buyer brokers, and buyer agents. 3% goes to the buyer side, and 3% goes to the sellers side. After the fees are divided, the buyer broker gets 30% of the total fee on the buyer side, while the buyer agent gets the remaining 70% of the total fee on the buyer side. The same goes for the sellers: the broker gets 30% and the agent gets 70%. All said and done, only 6% of your total sale may not seem like too bad of a deal for not having to deal with the bigger complexities of selling your home.

But what if we told you there’s another way?

Part of what makes Team Nelson and the other brokers that followed in our footsteps so unique is our approach to listing commissions: we don’t charge any commission if you buy with us. That’s right, when you buy a home with us, you immediately save that 3% that would’ve gone to the seller commissions, because we just don’t charge it. If that still doesn’t seem like a big deal to you, think of it this way: if you sell your home for $400,000, that’s $12,000 right back in your pocket with absolutely no drawbacks. Because of the sheer volume of homes we deal in, we’re able to pass the savings back to you, our clients, saving you money and the hassle of dealing with multiple agents and brokers. If you want to sell your home commission free, we are ready to help!

    I simply love our realtor Tara McClendon. She is so hands on & driven to make our experience the best possible. Very responsive to my family needs & exceeded all of our expectations. Kelly Pittsinger has so much industry knowledge & expertise to pass down to us and was tremendous in getting us the best potential offer for the purchase of our home. Love them both!!!! The whole Bill Nelson Team was outstanding.

    As a buyer and seller of real estate I have used Bill Nelson "Your Home Free" on all property sales and purchasing. Mr. Nelson and his team have expertise and excellent negotiating skills everyone needs when selling or buying property. Every call was returned and there are no questions presented to anyone in the team that goes unanswered. If you as a buyer or seller haven't met the Nelson team, you should. Bill Nelson "Your Home Free" is the only real estate company I use.

    Bill, Emma, Andra and their team were awesome. I worried that free might mean subpar, but they were incredible! They were super responsive, professional and agressive in helping me to sell my house and helping me to find a new one. I very highly recommend you use their services if you want your real estate transaction to go smoothly.

    My main praise for Your Home Free is that they know the Flower Mound market and were able to get our house sold when an out of town realtor could not. They were also patient to help us find our new home when the market was pretty crazy.
