High Value, Flat-Fee Commission and Cancellable Listing Agreement
The Geddes Group has been helping homeowners since 2004 throughout Duval County and St. Johns County as well as Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade Counties in South Florida for properties priced from $100,000 to $10,000,000.
There are no upfront fees and we deliver Extreme Full Service, including full MLS access, massive online distribution to more than 700+ real estate websites, professional HDR and drone aerial photography and video, virtual staging for vacant properties, 4-8 page color brochures and proven marketing strategies.
In addition, The Geddes Group buys paid advertising on Facebook to geographically and demographically target the most likely buyers of your property.
We abandoned the antiquated 6% listing commission in favor of our heavily discounted but Extreme Full Service Flat-Fee model to put more money in your pocket.
Also, we replaced the dreaded and antiquated 6-month exclusive listing agreement with a No-Risk cancellable listing agreement. We provide a detailed property assessment which is often times called a Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) designed to fine tune the gap between what many sellers believe to be the value of their home or condo to the actual data of comparable properties — those that are currently available as well as those that are pending and sold within the past 3 months.

Do you want to learn the approximate value of your home?
The true market value of your home depends of many variables such as:
- How many bedrooms, baths, etc.
- How many Square Feet
- Did you make any improvements to your home?
- Newer homes often times are more valuable than older homes
- Age of the roof
View and Location
- Some lots are simply more valuable than others
- Some communities support higher values than others
Recent activity for home sales in your community
- Are there similar homes for sale or were sold in your community?
Times are changing and you’re thinking about moving into a new home. But before you start searching for your next dream home, you’ll need to figure out when you’re going to sell your existing home. The decision is a complex one, especially considering the unpredictable economic environment you’re living in. And while there’s no magic formula for determining the best time to sell a home, there are several factors you should consider.
The wrong time to sell
This likely won’t come as a big surprise: you should avoid selling your home during the winter holiday season. Tensions run high during the holidays and budgets run low. The result? No one’s really itching to buy, and offers that do come are often low. So, as a general rule of thumb, avoid the months of December and January when selling a home.
The best season for selling
Conventional wisdom dictates that spring is the best time to sell a home. In spring, the holidays have passed, the new school year is still a while away, and gardens and other outdoor spaces tend to look their best. And while spring is the season that sees the largest amount of buyers, it’s also the season when inventories are highest. This means lots of competition, so if you’re going to sell in spring, you really need to get your property to stand out with effective marketing and staging.
The best day for selling
According to research, Thursday is the best day of the week to list your home for sale. By listing your home for sale on a Thursday, you can make it available immediately for weekend showings. Come Saturday – the busiest day for real estate – your home will have only been on sale for two days, which is great for attracting full-price offers. In general, the shorter amount of time your home remains on the market, the higher the offer you’ll receive.
Here are some of the key areas we can help you with:
- Pricing correctly at the very beginning matters and the right price range can be found using simple mathematical analysis.
- You can improve the market value of your property by completing low-cost projects.
- Not staging a property leaves too much to the buyer’s imagination, leading to a lower market value.
- Marketing must not only expose the property to the right buyers, but also motivate them to take action.
- Listening to the buyer’s and cooperating agent’s feedback allows for the appropriate adjustments in price and condition to be made during the process.
- Evidence that supports a higher value must be presented during negotiation, and buyer challenges and questions must be responded to promptly.
- Although you may enter into a contract, there are many details that must be attended to during the complicated closing process.
