Your Resource Page for The SHOWCASE Plan

From For Sale to Sold Omaha NE Real Estate

Thank you for your interest in our Showcase plan!

Carefully review and then bookmark this page. It has the links to the resources you will need throughout the listing/selling process. If you have a question that is not addressed in the instructions in the various kits, the FAQS or on the Selling Tips page feel free to email us.

Please download the Listing Kit
which has all the forms needed to get started plus helpful instructions that will help you sell your home quickly and for top dollar. Once your paperwork is received in good order we will send out the sign.

Note: All listings must have an easy way for agents to gain access to the property, such as a combo lockbox, garage door code or push button front door code. The lockbox is the preferred method. They can be purchased at Lowes or Home Depot. Letting the agent in or leaving a door open is not an acceptable alternative.

If the house is occupied someone must be available to approve showings at all times during business hours. Vacant houses will be set to "Show Anytime".

Note: No one should be present when the house is being shown. Remember, once the property is on the MLS it is no longer a For Sale By Owner property (although you may definitely sell it by owner and avoid the buyer's agent commission). Agents see it as a listed property and expect all normal conventions to apply
. So, NO For Sale By Owner signs, please.

Review the Selling Tips page for helpful tips on selling your home.

Download the Selling Document Kit which has all the forms needed to draft an offer if you find the buyer, the required Sellers Estimated Proceeds Statement, plus helpful instructions on completing the paperwork and responding to an offer from a buyer's agent.

Buying a house? Save money with our "Buyer's Advantage Program". Not only don't we charge a broker admin fee, our buyers can get a commission rebate! Unlike the other guys who charge you to buy a home through them, we pay you to buy your next home through us!

Moving out of town? Download our Relo Kit and let us find you a great agent and get a rebate in the process!

Prefer the Full Service Plan? The Listing Kit has both options, just select the Full Service Plan.

Be sure to review the Which Plan is Best for Me page. Most sellers can get the "Full Service Plan" for just a few hundred dollars more at closing. It is more convenient and has proven to be more effective.  

To change from Showcase to Full Service just download the Program Upgrade form. You may upgrade at anytime.

Tip: Limit your communication to a buyer's agent to the bare minimum. They work for the buyer and anything you say will be used to the buyer's benefit. Also, sellers communicating directly with the buyer's agent is not the norm and some agents will not be comfortable with it. Any feedback that an agent will have will be sent directly to us through the questionnaire that they receive from the showing service. We will pass on whatever feedback we receive. Not all agents provide feedback. We do not recommend calling agents for feedback!

If you prefer to skip the paperwork and let us do it all email us about our Traditional Full Service option with rates of 2% if we sell your home or 4.4% if a buyer's agent brings the buyer. There are discounts for sales over 400k and no upfront fees. Minimum commission is $3,000.
