Dallas is located in North Texas and is the central hub of the largest inland metropolitan area in the US that does not have a navigable connection to the sea.

This, along with the construction of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the world, has made Dallas a strong industrial and financial center and a major inland port. The city is the economic center of the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area, which had a population of almost 8 million in 2021.

    If you don't use Tod Franklin and DFW Cityhomes you are literally throwing thousands of dollars away. I have to admit that I was skeptical of their pricing being so low. How could one real estate agency charge 3% of the selling price to list our home ($18,000) while DFWCityhomes charges less than $2,000? Well here's the difference ...... Tod did everything a listing real estate agent would do except actually show the home in person. He came and discussed pricing strategies, did comps of houses like ours in our area, took amazing photos and listed us on MLS .... just like the real estate agents that charge 3%! The only difference is that instead of having your agent make appointments to meet prospective buyers at your property, DFWCityhomes uses a service that contacts you by text or email to advise you when someone wants to view your home and you can either be there or not as DFWCityhomes provides you with a lockbox so other agents can access your home for approved appointments. Also, you get to determine what times and days you will make your property available and when it isn't. It was so easy! We sold our house for OVER asking price to the first prospective buyer. Tod took care of all of the paperwork and answered all our questions and concerns and was critical in making sure the deal closed. I will NEVER pay 3% again, and neither should you.

    Incredibly reliable & effective company. Tod is a consummate professional & truly assists throughout the entire home selling process. High quality experience from start to finish & excellent follow up throughout. Very grateful to have found Tod & his valuable expertise. Highly recommend DFW Cityhomes!

  • We dropped the selling price $76,000 over a four month period. Tod was always available and returned my emails promptly. When the buyer was asking for repairs that I didn’t think were reasonable, Tod stepped in and helped. Thank you Tod.

    Great experience!! Tod is fantastic and have already started referring him to my fiends. Extremely happy with the process and transaction.

  • About 2 years ago I sold my house with a "full service" realtor. After a bad experience, I didn't want to pay 3% again when it came time to sell my next house. Tod took better pictures, was more responsive, and did a better job walking us through the process than the "full-service" realtor. I never once felt that the cheaper price impacted the service I received. Tod actually found and corrected the mistakes made by the buyer's (3%) agent . We had a full offer within about 2 weeks and closed quickly. I would recommend Tod to anyone.

    We have now used Tod Franklin for four transactions. We have recommended him to three other families that have used him as well. That alone speaks volumes on the type of man he is. He is a very knowledgeable and dependable gentleman. A true class act!

    Tod was great in helping us navigate the complications we experienced along the way, we had 3 different contracts on the condo and for one reason or another they fell through (not his fault on any of them). But finally the 4th one stuck! We appreciated all the effort he put in for us.

    Working with DFWCityhomes was simple and straightforward. Tod was quick to communicate with us so we were never left with questions. We worked together on a sales strategy which ended in our home selling over asking. I have already recommended him to friends and family. I highly suggest you call him and consider his services.

    I can’t recommend Tod enough!! He was a great realtor from start to finish. He patiently showed us a lot of houses, never pushing us to make a quick decision. He is very observant to detail and knowledgeable about what to look for in the structure of a house. He was a skillful negotiator and gave very wise counsel on our contract. We bought and sold our house with Tod and when things were not going well on our selling side, he was very responsive and attentive to get all the issues worked out. He has been in the industry a long time and understands all the intricacies and options available. He is a great professional and a very kind person. This is our second house we bought with Tod and second house we sold with him and we would never consider any other realtor! He has handled every obstacle with incredible skill.

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.
