That brokerage is not a Realtor member company. They operate on a flat fee buy/sell. Take a look at average days on market for their listings as opposed to the general market.

Sometimes if it looks too good to be true...

From what I am reading in the reviews I can chose the flat fee on the seller side, and offer a traditional commission for the buyers agent. But I will look into the DOM. Thank you Just looking onto all options at this point, and reading reviews if I can find them.

I'm not that surprised, I bet there will be people who decide to cash in now, to maximize their profits even if they might not have otherwise planned to sell.

You talking about Trelora? We used them to sell our house in Parker back in October. Absolutely the best decision we could have made. We were skeptical, but pulled the trigger. Within 3 days of sending in the first payment install (i believe it was half of the flat $3,500 fee), a photographer came out to take pictures of our house and help with staging. Our house was already free and empty of clutter as we'd put half our stuff in storage in preparation for staging, so she only had a few suggestions. She then took pictures of the house and made it look really nice (not that it wasn't a nice house lol). a few days later it "went live" and was listed on all the major sites. Now this was more due to the RED HOT Dnver housing market than it was our sales guy, but we got 7 offers on our house within 2 weeks, and sold just 16 days after being on the market. We then paid the other half of the flat fee to Trelora and boom...done.

In all the paper work we got after closing, Trelora gave us a worksheet breakdown of what we paid them versus what we would've paid to a realtor with the traditional fees. We saved over $7,000!

They even made a Youtube video for our house with all the pictures LOL





if this post gets deleted by admin for whatever reason, feel free to PM me. We had a fantastic experience using a flat-fee seller experience and would be happy to answer any questions folks might have!

No worries! I am glad to share our story. I first heard their commercial on the radio and thought it sounded a bit shady, as it seems too good to be true. Well, we did some research and decided to give it a whirl. Glad we did, saved some serious cash. lol

The entire process was very simple. And every time my wife or I called, our sales guy was very helpful in answering questions, and was prompt returning e-mails. They scheduled all the showings together in clumps as well, so we only had to be out of the house for 2 hours or so at a time. (not sure if that's how all realtors handle showings, it was my first time LOL).

So is it naturally cyclical that more houses become available at the end of Spring / start of Summer?

I ask because we've been searching for a month or two now, and we are getting kind of "down" about finding something. Only a few houses within our range pop up per week, and they either go for $20-30k over listing price, or have some weird stipulations (no inspection, all cash only, etc.).

Yes, and i believe it's directly tied to the end of the school year.
