Welcome To The BuySmart Realty Listing Plans 

 A “Smart” Way To Sell Your Home As Well

 BuySmart Realty offers those of you selling a home a choice of a FLAT FEE  listing plan for $399.00 or a low FULL SERVICE  fee of 1.25% !! * 

  Thinking of selling your home?  Listed homes historically sell faster and at higher values than FSBO’s. Also, the vast majority of home buyers in today’s crazy market are using the services of a Buyer’s Agent to assist them with their purchase. The primary search tool for a Buyer’s Agent is the Multiple Listing System which is exclusive to licensed real estate agents. 

Among realty companies offering  low cost listing plans, BuySmart is one of the few that is located in the Triangle area.  No matter which plan you choose, I personally meet with you and view your home. As a  licensed Realtor since 1994,  I ensure that your listing on the Multiple Listing Service is complete, accurate and compliant with all state and real estate commission guidelines, no matter which plan you choose.  Your home also receives widespread exposure across the internet.  My goal  when selling your home is to provide you with superior service, no matter the plan!  I am always just a phone call / text away.
