DISCOUNT COMMISSION: Always the first question – So how does Badgerland Realtors make a low discounted 3.5% closing commission structure work? There’s a couple ways: 1) We eliminate time consuming and expensive Open Houses and Print Ads. The 1990′s are gone. The smart, sophisticated buyers (the buyers you want) are all searching for homes on their favorite website or with their favorite agent. 2) Badgerland covers upfront costs through a series of four small listing fees. Just $250/month for the first four months of your contract. Think about it this way – If your local grocery store charged a $10 cover charge to get in the door, but then you saved 40% on everything you bought – you would do that every time you were ready to do some serious shopping. That’s what we’re about at Badgerland – serious shoppers.
TECHNOLOGY: Our business model is designed to maximize the savings to home sellers while not sacrificing the essential services needed to sell a property. While the traditional real estate companies struggle with their old-fashioned, dinosaur-like ways, Badgerland operates in a high-tech, efficient manner. The way real estate broker’s marketed properties in the 80’s and 90’s is now obsolete. Back then it was expensive to advertise and information was closely held by the real estate companies. Since the early 2000’s, the internet has opened the information highway to the masses. Because property information is now very public, it is easy and inexpensive to market properties effectively. While other companies continue to employ antiquated practices like Open Houses, Broker Opens, Print Advertising, and Mailings to your neighbors, Badgerland has embraced technology and all the cost savings associated with it.
MARKETING: At Badgerland, we maximize marketing exposure via the local MLS’s. In addition, Badgerland has contracted with List HUB to bring your property listing to websites such as Google Maps, AOL Real Estate, Yahoo Real Estate, Zillow, Trulia, and dozens more. All of our listings offer a 2.4% Co-Broke Commission – and that’s included in the Discounted 3.5% Closing Commission!
SERVICE: Despite all the recent technological advances, choosing the right agent is still important. Our full-time agents have employment histories that are extremely diversified. We have experts in banking and mortgages, relocation and job placement, title insurance, new home construction, public and private schooling- just to name a few. In fact, we bring this expertise LIVE to you every Saturday at 9am on The Badgerland Realtors Show on AM1130 WISN. This show is currently the longest running real estate show on the Wisconsin air waves. We’ve had expert guests on the show talking about a wide array of topics – including Ran Hoth, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Better Business Bureau. Badgerland has an “A” rating with the BBB.
