Your House. Your Offer. Expect More.

All contingencies are negotiable. There are no standard contingencies. There are contingencies commonly included in Offers. Whether or not your ability to close the sale will be subject to any contingency is choice you have a say in.

Expect your real estate professional, attorney or licensee, to discuss each contingency and what it means to you with you. Accept nothing as standard. Before you commit to relinquishing control to any buyer, you have the opportunity to think about the risk the contingency shifts to your side. Just because it’s in the Offer does not mean it’s important to the buyer. Sometimes contingencies get into Offers for no better reason than because they’re there. Expect more.

The real estate transaction, disclosure, and confidentiality are the business of a Wisconsin licensee. It's in the transaction where the skill of the licensee, and their commitment to the law where the public is protected or placed at risk. What you see REALTORS do to brand themselves and their firms, promote their service, advertise, and process paper do not require a license. I believe negotiations to create and honor a real estate purchase agreement is where the agent has the greatest value in a transaction. Paying professional fee rates for the administrative services is a choice consumers deserve. Old business model driven commission rates are taxing the home equity of American home sellers. Essential Real Estate was created to put more money in the hands of the consumer by eliminating expenses for the firm and charging a fair price for the real real estate service.
