You only pay the flat fee at time of listing. You will pay the buyer's agent commission that you have decided on in your listing contract at closing if there is a Buyer's agent involved in the sale. The recommended commission is at least 2.5%. If you sell the home yourself no other fees are due at closing.
Due to Louisiana's Minimum service requirement we take a small percentage from the above commission. (.20% above $400,000, .25% from $100,000 to $399,999, .375% from $50,000 to $99,999.) The state has placed into law that every listing agent must do certain things and represent their client. All offers must come through our office, we will go over them and send a summary or discuss the offer, counter, inspection repair request, etc. with you and look over your responses and send them to the buyers agent if you have chosen the Showcase package. For Premium we fill out the responses.
