 A “Smart” Way To Sell Your Home As Well

Many realty companies charge up to 6.0% or more to list your home and some even tack on professional / brokerage fees.  BuySmart Realty offers home sellers a choice of 3 low cost listing plans and NEVER adds on any of these type fees. All BuySmart plans are designed to save you significant dollars in commission fees without sacrificing any of the buyer exposure your home deserves.

Admittingly,  I am NOT the least expensive discount listing service available.  However, I am among the the very few that “are local” and will actually come out to meet with you and view your home in person. With a 25 year reputation to protect, I also insure that your listing on the TMLS is complete, accurate and compliant with all federal, state and real estate commission guidelines.
