3.9% Marketing Program

If you are interested in selling your home as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, you will be pleasantly surprised by Barbara's 3.9% TOTAL COMMISSION, FULL SERVICE MARKETING PROGRAM for homesellers in Lake Royale and the greater Franklin/Wake County area.  As you will see, the old adage "you get what you pay for" does not apply!  With Barbara you get more!  AND you get results


With Barbara, paying less commission does NOT mean receiving less service.  The 3.9% total commission you pay at closing includes ALL of the following at NO ADDITIONAL COST to you:

Detailed Home Evaluation.  Barbara evaluates your home in comparison to similar homes that are for sale and have recently sold in the immediate marketplace, and makes listing price and other recommendations (e.g., inexpensive interior and/or exterior changes) to improve its sellability.  Barbara's goal is to work with you to make your home as attractive as possible to as many potential buyers as possible as soon as it goes on the market, and to keep it that way until it sells.

Triangle Multiple Listing Service.  Within 48 hours (usually less!), your home will be entered into the MLS, THE place buyers' agents search for homes for their clients.  Up to 25 photographs are included.  Attention to detail matters here.  Ask Barbara!

Internet Advertising.  Your home will be featured on Barbara's website, Wieland Properties' website,,,,, and MANY other internet websites, some with a slide presentation (similar to a virtual tour) of the photographs included with your listing.  This gives your home both local and national exposure, a real plus for a popular relocation destination such as the Raleigh area. 

Yard Sign.  A Wieland Properties sign with Barbara's name and telephone number will be placed in your yard.

Flyer Box.  A flyer box will be placed next to the yard sign.  Flyers included!

Lock Box.  For security and ease of showing, a lock box for your door is provided.

Reference Book.  Barbara creates a reference book especially for your home.  This reference book is placed inside your home for viewing during showings, and includes a listing brochure highlighting the special features of your home, a floor plan and/or survey of your property if available, community information, and other information that may be of interest to potential buyers of your home.

Appointment Center.  All members of the TMLS, including buyers' agents, use a calling center (the Centralized Showing Service or CSS) to schedule showings of homes their clients are interested in.  CSS makes showing your home easier and more efficient for both you and potential buyers.  In addition, CSS automatically emails a request for feedback to each agent who has shown your home. 

Weekly Updates.  At least once a week, Barbara will be in contact with you regarding the status of your listing, including changes in the comps, showings and feedback, and the results of Barbara's various marketing activities.  This contact may be by email and/or telephone.

Open Houses and Additional Advertising.  Barbara evaluates the need for open houses and additional advertising (e.g., newspaper ads) on a case-by-case basis with you.  These also are provided, if needed, at no cost to you.


While real estate commissions vary, and are always negotiable, buyers' agents most often receive a commission of 2.4% of the final sales price of resale homes in Franklin and Wake Counties.   Wieland Properties and Barbara offer the SAME 2.4% commission to buyers' agents who sell their listings.  The difference (3.9% - 2.4% = 1.5%) is what Wieland and Barbara receive as the seller's agent. 

Since buyers' agents receive the SAME 2.4% commission, they have the SAME incentive to show and sell one of Barbara's 3.9% listings as they do to show and sell a home listed by another company at 5, 6 or 7%.  Buyers' agents show your home as often as they do other homes and receive the SAME commission for selling your home, while YOU receive the savings!

By taking advantage of current technologies, Barbara is able to SAVE YOU THOUSANDS!  What would YOU do with YOUR SAVINGS?  Pay moving expenses?  Decorate your new home?  Take a much-needed vacation?  Invest for retirement?  Check out the table below and imagine the possibilities!
