Comprehensive full-service listing experience at a flat fee of $9,900

Welcome to SLO County Homes, an exclusive Listing Brokerage offering a comprehensive full-service listing experience at a fair and transparent flat fee of $9,900. Unlike the traditional real estate model where sellers are burdened with paying multiple entities with the listing commission they pay, we’ve streamlined our approach to eliminate unnecessary costs and prioritize how much money we can get in your pocket from the sale of your home.

Here’s What Sets Us Apart

Eliminating Unnecessary Fees

Traditional real estate transactions often involve splitting the listing commission among multiple entities, resulting in inflated costs for sellers. With our flat fee structure, you pay for the people who are working to sell your home. We pass on the savings from eliminating unnecessary fees directly to the Seller.

Percentage vs. Flat-Free comission

We believe in charging a flat fee for the services rendered, not a percentage of the property’s sale price. Our flat fee remains consistent, regardless of your home’s value, ensuring fairness and transparency in our pricing model. Just like hiring any other home service provider, where the service cost remains consistent regardless of the property’s location or value, we offer a consistent fee for our top-notch services.

Our Comprehensive Listing Service

Our goal is to get the seller the best price for their home and have a smooth escrow. We’ve detailed what our listing service includes on this site to make it easier for you to compare our service with other listing agents. 

First and foremost, we represent the Seller 100% . We will always have the seller’s best interests in mind. We will be there every step of the home sale.

Every local brokerage lists on the MLS (as we do!) which gives the best exposure to buyers (via Zillow, Realtor.com, and other home search sites).  But what a listing agent includes in the MLS listing can set your home apart from other competing homes. 

Our service provides an extensive digital presentation that includes professional photography, a 360-degree walk through tour, a visual floor plan, and an interactive model. A buyer can access everything from the dedicated property website using a phone, tablet, or desktop.  The photos on the website are high resolution, 2-3 times the resolution of the home photos displayed on Zillow.

The property website address is added to the MLS listing which also appears on Zillow, Realtor.com, and other home search sites. We provide a custom yard sign rider with the Internet address of your property website, which is the modern replacement for the flyer box for buyers that drive around neighborhoods.

Additionally, we enlist the expertise of a seasoned Transaction Coordinator to handle all documents, disclosures, timelines, and ensure a seamless escrow process to help with achieving a stress-free transaction.

Digital Presentation Excellence

In today’s digital age, the presentation of your home is paramount. Our digital package encompasses everything modern buyers desire, from high-quality photos and immersive 360-degree walk through tours to visual floor plans. We understand the importance of showcasing your property effectively online, reaching not just buyers but also their extended network of family and friends involved in their home buying process.

Customized Marketing Tools

Beyond the standard digital package, we offer additional marketing options like aerial photography, twilight photography, time-lapse videos, and more to highlight your home’s unique features. Our custom yard sign rider with property website addresses act as a modern replacement for traditional flyer boxes, ensuring maximum exposure for your listing.

Expert Transaction Coordination

To ensure a smooth and legally compliant transaction, we work with a highly experienced Transaction Coordinator (TC), who manages over 1000 transactions annually. No other Transaction Coordinator in San Luis Obispo County has this much experience!  Their expertise in contracts, disclosures, and escrow processes adds tremendous value, keeping your transaction on track and minimizing stress. Our TC has a brokers license which is rare. Most Transaction Coordinators don’t have a real estate license (Broker or Salesperson license).

Transaction Archive

At the end of transaction, we give you both a printed and digital archive of all the documents during the transaction.  The Transaction Book is a bound book. This book includes a table of contents and every page is numbered to make it easy to find the document you’re looking for. A USB flash drive provides digital copies of all the documents as well.

No Dual Agency

Dual Agency is when the listing agent also represents the buyer or when the buyer and seller are represented by agents within the same brokerage. Dual Agency is one of the biggest SCAMS in real estate. Under Dual Agency, the law prohibits an agent to look after YOUR best interests, which is why you hire a real estate agent in the first place. Click below to learn more about why Dual Agency DOES NOT benefit sellers.

Cancel Listing Agreement at Anytime

We don’t contractually commit you to a 6- or 12-month listing agreement as other Listing Brokerages do.

At SLO County Homes, we’re committed to providing exceptional service, cutting-edge marketing strategies, and substantial cost savings for our clients. Contact us today to experience the difference in real estate excellence.

Seller Testimonials

Keith Byrd was highly recommended to me as a listing agent by a friend of mine, and I will say I am extremely pleased that I chose him. First, I was blown away with how quickly he was able to get my house listed, with all the professional images and aerial photography, as well as the Matterport virtual tour. Keith is a hard-working, seasoned professional, super easy to work with, and he knows the real estate market very well. He made my entire experience enjoyable, with his good-natured personality and positive attitude. Keith was there for me every step of the way; he listened, answered all my questions, stayed in solution-mode, and he went above and beyond what I expected of him as we navigated the selling process together. His rates are more than reasonable, and he takes ownership in making sure the sale goes smoothly. Tanya, is excellent as well, performing all the behind-the-scenes documents and transaction details. I highly recommend Keith as a listing agent and would use him again in a heartbeat.

Listing Service Comparison

How does our listing service compare to other agents?

We know that agents that charge a lot for a listing service will claim that, since we charge only $9,900, there is something missing in our service. Or they’ll claim they will be able to get a higher sales price for your home to try to justify their expensive commission. We believe we offer more than the majority of the high-priced listing services. We have a modern business model that allows us save a seller a lot of money while offering a FULL service.

Does the listing agent have a broker license? Does their marketing include photos, 360 walk through, and floor plan that buyers want to see or do they just upload photos to the MLS?? Do they have a property website and have a URL rider on the yard sign? Does their Transaction Coordinator have a brokers license? Are they ok with dual agency?
