Flat fee, full service, Investor focused

In preparing for the Summer, the team at Investable Realty has decided to offer flat fee listings for a limited time.  Whether you are an investor or a homeowner, our team of licensed and trained real estate agents will list any home in the Dallas Fort Worth area for a flat fee of $995.  Although this is flat fee, I’ve made it clear to them it is not flat service!

So, whether it’s a personal residence, a completed flip property, an occupied rental, or a wholesale deal, you’ll receive the following for $995:

  • Detailed listing in MLS including room measurements and a thought out description
  • Professional pictures, not an iPhone
  • A real sign in the yard
  • Full contract negotiating assistance
  • Detailed opinions and analysis prior to listing
  • Showing support and documentation through CSS
  • No combos, only electronic keyboxes

Need help?  We have over 30 agents waiting to assist.  These are the same agents that sell my houses, and I’ve personally taken an interest in preparing them to be of service to you.
