Sell your home in Portland & Vancouver Metro Selling your home can be easy. Let our experienced staff help you make it happen.
Welcome to the “Home of the 1% listing fee”. Locally owned and operated, Change Realty is a full-service, residential brokerage firm serving the Portland Metro and Clark County real estate communities. Our business model is simple. It is built around the idea of letting the homeowner keep more of the equity in their home when they go to sell. At Change Realty, we offer the same full service of a traditional brokerage, but only charge a 1% listing fee. THIS IS NOT A DISCOUNT BROKERAGE. We have simply changed the pricing structure on the seller’s side, for the commissions paid when a homeowner sells their house.
We have become advocates for the homeowner, providing a financially responsible alternative when they go to sell their home. Now in our NINTH year of business, we have sold over $400 million worth of properties and most importantly, helped over 1,000 families sell or purchase their homes.
Is Change Realty’s affordable listing service right for you?
Change Realty home sellers are well-informed. They know their property is an exceptional one. There is no doubt the home will show well and sell quickly if properly priced. The house is well- maintained, in excellent condition, and shows pride of ownership. Many wise home sellers do not want to pay a traditional 6% or even 5% real estate commission to sell their home.
Sophisticated home sellers do not wish to appear “cheap” by using one of the “help you sell” or “flat fee” type of services or even worse, by trying to sell the home themselves. They realize that a “For Sale By Owner” sign, just doesn’t send the right message to potential home buyers. Change Realty sellers also know the importance and the value of competent, professional real estate representation. Even if you are selling a desirable home in a strong seller’s market, you still need quality representation.
What type of marketing will be done to sell your house?
The foundation for all of our marketing is online. We use a professional photographer for all of our listings. The buyer for your house will most likely find it online – so we need the photos to jump off the screen! As soon as the house is listed in MLS, it will immediately be syndicated out to hundreds of websites, such as: Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com, Trulia and any other website with a search engine. Your home will have a Change Realty for sale sign, a realtor lockbox, color flyers, and a full-color information board attached to the sign. In addition, we create a custom website with details about the neighborhood, schools, mapping and a video tour to provide as much information, to as many people as possible. Click here to see an example of our custom property website. We also feature narrated video tours of our listings (click here to see an example) and guided 3D imaging to enhance the online experience for prospective buyers. Open houses and broker tours are also included – all for a 1% listing fee!
We provide the type of full-service representation that only an experienced real estate broker can provide.
At Change Realty our affordable real estate services deliver full-service and more, all while charging a much lower realtor commission. Change Realty guarantees that the total real estate commission paid by a home seller will never exceed 3.5% (1% to Change and 2.5% to the buyers broker). Our services start with an in-home consultation and comprehensive market analysis on the value of your home. Also, we are with you to help negotiate offers, assist with inspection negotiations, the appraisal process – even sitting next to you when you go to sign documents at closing. In addition, our experienced, full-time brokers can also help you find and purchase your next property – whether it be your primary residence or an investment property.
