Flat Fee Package
* If your transaction will be for less than $200,000, you need a Real Estate Contract, you are a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) or otherwise just need limited broker and/or legal services, send us an email or call to discuss your needs and we will work out a reasonable flat fee.
For sellers, the flat fee is paid at closing if and when your property successfully closes. Sellers offer a commission to incentivize buyers’ agents to show and sell the property, which is typically 2.5% or 3%. If the buyer does not use an agent, then the seller gets to keep the buy-side commission on top of the savings on the seller side ( WA Realty Law never acts as a dual agent, so the buyer agent commission is not paid to us).
Buyers pay $500 up front when you hire WA Realty Law and the balance becomes due if and when you successfully close on the purchase of a property. At closing, you will receive a credit of the commission we receive from the seller less the balance of our flat fee. For buyer’s using financing, the rebate is first applied to pay some or all of your closing costs and prepaids. If there’s money left over it usually gets taken off of the sales price (most lenders do not allow cash to be paid to the buyer).
