Let’s face it; times have changed but not as rapidly as they should in the realm of Real estate. Years ago finding a house for sale or even qualified buyers was accomplished through the tools that only agents possessed. And paying 6% of your homes value for those tools and services made sense. But as we said times have changed, with social media the Internet and just how well we as a society do with networking the Realtor’s job has become a little easier, but unfortunately not the high 6% commission fees. Well, we’re changing that.

With Mark Longenecker and Associates in conjunction with Future Home Realty you’ll only pay commission on what you really need; negotiating skills, attention to detail, contractional expertise, reliability, timely statistics, advertising, agent to agent networking, and possibly most importantly advice from years of Real estate experience for as little as 2% of your selling price. This will save you, the seller, thousands of dollars all the while maximizing your exposure and flexibility.

We believe this program is best fitted for today’s market and a great option for you, the seller, seeking both the full benefits of an Agents services and keeping your options open. You only pay 2% when you procure (find) the buyer. You may be surprised at how consistently this happens which is why we fill the need for a program just like this.
