What are the next steps after I place my order?

Why should I list on the MLS?

Over 80% of home buyers use a Realtor®, who in turn, will search the MLS database to identify any homes for sale that meet the buyers requirements.  Your home will be seen by more buyers in a shorter time frame and most of the buyers will already be financially pre-approved since Realtor s® do not want to waste their time showing homes to buyers who can t afford it.

Additionally the MLS feeds all the major real estate websites so your exposure will be far greater than just listing a home on your own.

Why should I list with you?

We have a great deal, we are local, accessible, easy to work with and have great customer service.

Who will see my listing?

You get the best of both worlds. Individual buyers and Realtor s® with buyers will know your home is for sale. Individual buyers looking for homes will see your mls listing posted on websites like: Realtor.com, Chicagotribune.com, Trulia, Zillow, Yahoo and others.

Brokers will have direct access to your home information through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). They will already have pre-approved buyers that they are working with.

What if I want to cancel my listing?

You can cancel at anytime with no strings attached. You just need to send or fax us in writing.

What will I have to pay to a buyer s broker?

You decide what you pay a real estate agent (buyer s broker) who brings you a potential buyer. When you list on the MLS you commit to paying the agent who brings you the buyer a set commission. To make sure you take full advantage of being listed on the MLS we recommend you offer a 2.5% commission to a buyer's agents.

What if there is no buyer s broker in the transaction?

Then there is no % commission.

How do Buyers and Realtor s® get my information or how will I be contacted?

Broker/Realtors® will have all your information available to them through their Multiple Listing Service under the showing instructions. They will call you directly to set up showings.

Individual buyers will have access to your listing through one of the commercial websites you will be listed on. The MLS does not allow your phone number to be pulled by these websites.

That being said our 800 phone number is listed on sites like Realtor.com and calls to that number can be directly forwarded to you through our unique telecommunication solution.  This means that even on a Sunday night at 7pm a prospective buyers can reach you directly without having to go through our office.

How soon will I be listed?

We can have you listed on the MLS within one business day.  Your listing may take 3-5 days to appear on some websites.

Should I get a laywer to help me?

Yes - Almost all buyer's and seller's in Illinois have attorneys help them through a real estate transaction.

Why won t brokers boycott me?

Real estate agents make their money from commissions. If you were to hire an agent to sell your home you would pay 4-6% commission. That commission is normally split with the buyer s broker who brings in the buyer. In a normal real estate transaction the buyer's broker gets 2-3% commission. As long as you are offering a similar commission real estate agents will show your home.

The other reason they will not boycott you is that it is illegal and they can have their license revoked. They must always be acting in the best interest of their clients. Not showing your property based on the commission you are offering is not acting in the best interest of their clients. Furthermore if they decide not to present to you they can possibly be engaging in price-fixing and group boycotting which violate U.S. Anti-trust laws involving both civil and criminal penalties leading to a possible 3 year jail term and heavy fines.

How do I pay for your service?

We accept Visa, Mastercard or Discover. We also accept checks.

What is your money back guarantee?

If you are not satisfied for any reason in the 1st 7 days we offer a full 100% money back guarantee.

After that we have another program where we can refer you to one of the best agents in your area and at closing and if you decide to hire them we will refund your money at closing.

Will Berg Properties bring buyer's to my home?
Possibly: We do work with buyers that we cultivate from a variety of traditional sources like word of mouth referrals, past clients, pay per click advertising, and others.
