    Tod exceeded our expectations in every way! He essentially provided us with service you'd expect from a good full service agent at an extremely affordable flat rate price. From providing an exhaustive market analysis, to taking gorgeous photos showcasing the home, and then helping us to negotiate through multiple offers the first week our home was on the market Tod did a great job! From beginning to our close, he was responsive and professional. We never once felt like we were receiving cut rate service. Strongly recommend him to anyone in DFW area considering listing their home!

    Tod and DFWCityHomes are fantastic! We stumbled upon them with a simple internet search and didn't know what to expect but we left being completely blown away by the service/expertise that Tod offered. We have used two other realtors in the past 7 years for other home purchases and were left unimpressed by their assistance. This was not the case with Tod. Tod was knowledgeable in all areas of the real estate process, took really great photos and helped us sell our house in 2 days for more than we were asking. However, his assistance didn't stop there, he made sure everything stayed on schedule and was extremely responsive to all communications from both sides of the transaction. In assisting us with our purchase he was very open to providing his opinion when requested but also allowed us time and space to find the perfect home for us. He never made us feel rushed. The most amazing part of all this is that he offers this service while saving you money at the same time. I just can't imagine there being an agency who can offer you all that Tod and DFWCityhomes does.

    Together we found and purchased the perfect home for us. Tod is an expert but what made the difference was his patience, understanding, knowledge, availability and excellent ease of conversation and information exchange. He was very mindful of our time and he's never been late while spending all the time we needed (and we needed a lot). Unlike other agents Tod will never push you on making a decision. Quite the opposite: he will spend time with you analyzing together whether a particular property is fit for your requirements and offer advice, if you need it. He was there for us and with us all the way to the closing day. We are very grateful for his service. Thank you, Tod!

  • Todd was a great help in selling our home. He gave us a selling strategy and managed our closing exercise very well. I recommend Todd to experienced sellers that have the ability to manage the showing of their properties themselves. We saved a nice chunk of change with Todd's help.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Flat Fee MLS Listing?

In a Flat Fee MLS Listing arrangement, a seller contracts with a real estate broker to list their property on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) for a flat fee instead of paying the traditional percentage-based commission to the listing agent. This allows the seller to save money on the listing side of the transaction while still getting the exposure and marketing benefits of the MLS.

When sold, the seller is responsible for paying the buyer’s agent commission, which is typically around 2-3% of the sale price. This type of arrangement can be beneficial for sellers who want to save money on the listing side of the transaction and have some experience in real estate transactions, but it is important to note that the seller may need to handle aspects of the selling process themselves.

What is a Buyer Rebate?

When buying a home, the seller pays a buyer agent commission. Our rebate is one-third of that commission paid back to you as an incentive to do business with us. You save a lot of money and can use your rebate for anything you want.

What is a Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?

An MLS is a centralized database used by real estate brokers and agents to share information about properties for sale, providing detailed information including the listing price, property features, location, and other important details, and increasing visibility for potential buyers.

The MLS is run by local or regional realtor associations, and offers full market exposure to buyers and sellers, with more than 800 associations across the USA. According to National Association of Realtors (NAR), MLS transactions accounted for about 92% of home sales in 2020. Overall, the MLS promotes transparency and efficiency, making it easier for buyers and sellers to connect and complete real estate transactions.

MLS listings are an essential tool for both buyers and sellers in the real estate market. Buyers can use the MLS to search for properties that meet their specific criteria, while sellers can use the MLS to get full exposure to the marketplace, offering their properties to a large audience of potential buyers. Overall, the MLS helps to promote transparency and efficiency and makes it easier for buyers and sellers to connect and complete real estate transactions.

What is a For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

FSBO is a real estate transaction where the seller chooses to sell their property without an agent. The seller assumes responsibilities such as pricing, marketing, negotiating offers, and managing the closing process. FSBO transactions are typically undertaken by sellers who want to save money on real estate commissions or have experience in the real estate industry.

However, FSBO transactions can be challenging as the seller may lack the experience and resources of an agent. It is important for sellers to weigh the pros and cons before deciding to go this route. Working with a reputable and experienced real estate agent or broker can provide valuable expertise and guidance throughout the selling process.

What is the difference between a Flat Fee MLS Listing and traditional Realtor® 6% listing service?

A Flat Fee MLS Listing is different from a traditional 6% listing in how the real estate agent is compensated. In a traditional listing, the seller pays a percentage-based commission of typically 5-6% of the sale price to the listing agent, who then splits that commission with the buyer’s agent. In contrast, a Flat Fee MLS Listing involves a flat fee paid by the seller to the agent for listing the property on the MLS, with the commission paid to the buyer’s agent usually specified separately. While the fee structure is the main difference, there are also differences in the services provided.

In a traditional listing, the listing agent handles most aspects of the selling process, while in a Flat Fee MLS Listing, the seller is responsible for some tasks. It is important to research providers and understand what services are included in the fee. Using a Flat Fee MLS Listing can avoid the conflict of interest in dual agency, where an agent represents both the buyer and the seller. Ultimately, the choice of listing service depends on the seller’s goals, preferences, and comfort level with the selling process.

What should I do to get my home ready to sale?

The way you sell a home and live in a home are different things. The foremost number one thing to do is, “declutter” counters, walls and rooms. I walk into showings all the time and the garage is stacked floor to ceiling with Tupperware crates of removed clutter. Clean and make attractive all rooms, furnishings, floors, walls and ceilings. Make sure the basic appliances and fixtures work and get rid of leaky faucets and frayed cords. Make the house smell great.

Should I make repairs to sell my home?

Making repairs leads to a better sales price and a faster sell. It’s not always an easy decision about what to do and how much to spend. Your market analysis and agent should assist you in making repair decisions.

How will I see where my home is shown on the Internet?

It is simple, in considering listing services, enter the property address and Google search some of their active listings. After your listing is live, Google search your property address. You will see all the major sites on the first page. 

We make sure to list your home on a wide range of websites, including Realtor.com®TruliaZillow, and various real estate firms. In addition, we also post your listing on social media platforms such as FacebookTwitterPinterest, and more.

What are the steps involved in selling my home?

Selling a home requires an accurate asking price and understanding of selling options. Homeowners can choose to sell on their own through a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) arrangement, but this can be complex and time-consuming. Many prefer working with an experienced real estate broker or agent, who can provide expertise, guidance, and support throughout the process.

Steps include determining the home’s value, establishing timeline and budget, choosing a listing service, preparing the home for sale, marketing the home, receiving and reviewing offers, negotiating the sale, completing the sale, and moving out. These steps can be complex, which is why many homeowners prefer to work with a brokerage such as DFWCityhomes. Click here to Submit a Request For a Proposal.
