Park Real Estate Investments, LLC (Company) and it’s Affiliate Agents (Affiliate)*, work with each property owner to find their best option for selling their property.  This involves working one-on-one with each owner to identify their priorities and objectives, as well as constraints, and integrate everything into a sale plan which is right for them.

Property owners work with Affiliate Agents to establish the sale plan, along with fees and commission rates.  The fees and commission rates provided here are to provide a framework for that discussion.

All fees and commission are negotiated directly with the Affiliate Agent.

RANGE OF PROPERTY SALE OPTIONS

The options evaluated by the Home Sale Options Analysis (Model) are not fixed – take it or leave it – choices.  Rather, they are a set of methods for selling a residential property (house) available in today’s marketplace.  The options are provided as a means of showing relative implications in dollar terms, along with qualitative implications, e.g., seller involvement, for each.

Cash Sale

Marketing for Cash Sale

The Company will prepare marketing materials (with owner input and approval) and distribute through it’s Cash Sale Marketplace.

Price: 1.0 % of the sale price.

There is a $500 cost recovery charge if the Company provides a buyer who presents a cash offer meeting the Owner’s acceptance criteria, which the Owner does not accept.

Optional Ala Carte Representation

The Company Affiliate operating in the community will provide agency representation, including responding to buyer inquiries and providing interface with cash buyers, coordinating and/or participating in buyer-contractor evaluations and participating in contract negotiations through closing.

Affiliate and owner establish the commission paid to the Affiliate with successful sale.  This value may range from 1.0 % to 2.0 % of sale price, depending upon services provided.  The commission is paid at closing.
