Q: How does Get Movin benefit me as a seller?

A: Our transparent, automated process lets prospective buyers see the offers on the table and allows them to offer against each other to find the true value of your property. You don’t have to worry about what price to list your house at because the buyers will let you know how much they’re willing to pay! In a traditional real estate deal, the buyer doesn’t get a chance to top someone else’s offer even if they’re willing to go higher. Our system removes that barrier. Plus, because our process is automated, it costs you much less in fees. Instead of a standard 6-percent commission, we charge only 1 percent.


Q: How does Get Movin benefit me as a buyer?

A: For one, you won’t pay an inflated purchase price to cover a fat, 6-percent Realtor commission. Plus, on homes we list, our transparent process lets you see how your offer compares to others and allows you to increase your offer if you really want the house. There’s no anxiety about offering too low or too high because you can see exactly what you’re up against. For homes listed by other agents, we coordinate showings, handle the paperwork and oversee negotiations and closings for a low, 1-percent commission. In many cases you’re eligible for a buyer rebate worth thousands of dollars.


Q: Why do you sell real estate this way?

A: Technology has made so much of our lives easier and more convenient. We think real estate transactions should be the same way. There’s no longer any reason to pay a traditional Realtor a 6-percent commission to do the paperwork that you can complete on your own using our guided, automated system. Our sales commission is only 1 percent. On a $200,000 house that saves the seller $10,000!


Q: How can you charge such a low commission?

A: Our innovative software streamlines the transaction so that it takes less time and energy for all parties involved. We don’t have fancy office buildings. We don’t do open houses. We don’t run around town with papers to be signed. With our online system you can do it all. When buyers and sellers handle more of the process on their own – under the professional guidance of our team of licensed Realtors – then they don’t have to pay exorbitant fees.


Q: What if I feel more comfortable dealing with a live person?

A: Even though it’s a series of small, simple steps to complete a real estate deal online, we understand that it’s a big change for the industry. That’s why we have a team of licensed Realtors ready to assist you throughout the process. As a buyer or seller, you’ll have a live Realtor assigned to you every step of the way. Rest assured, our team has your back 24/7 from listing to closing.


Q: How do I negotiate a deal?

A: Our innovative software enables buyers to enter their offer details and see how their offer compares to other prospective buyers. In addition to the offer amount, a buyer’s down payment, type of mortgage and timeframe may affect how a seller ranks the offer. Buyers may increase any of those variables to improve their chances of getting the property.


Q: Once a deal is reached, then what?

A: The buyer’s bank will want to get an appraisal and proof of insurance before closing on a loan to purchase the property, and the buyer may want an inspection of the property before going ahead with the purchase. We have compiled a list of home inspectors, title companies and insurance providers that you may choose to keep the transaction moving along. Our buyer’s guide and seller’s guide each have step-by-step timelines for what happens in a real estate deal. Plus, our team of licensed Realtors oversees the process from start to finish.


Q: What happens if the inspection uncovers a significant problem with the property?

A: Our team of licensed Realtors has the experience to guide you through any negotiations involving a property inspection or other issue that may come up before closing. Our list of recommended service providers includes quality home improvement companies that can address any repairs that may be needed.


Q: I’m a buyer. How do I get started?

A: Search our listings to find your dream house. When you find it, register and place an offer! To make your offer more appealing to the seller, get pre-approved for financing. Our buyer’s guide can help you get started. If you find your dream home listed on another site, you can still use a Get Movin buyer’s agent to coordinate showings, handle the paperwork and oversee negotiations and the closing. In many cases you’ll be eligible for a buyer’s rebate of up to 2-percent of the purchase price.


Q: I’m a seller. How do I get started?

A: Just sign up, then our software will prompt you to fill in the information needed for a listing agreement with Get Movin Realty. After that, we’ll contact you to coordinate a photo session, give you ideas to prep your home and bring you a yard sign. Once the photos are ready, your listing will go live and you can start entertaining offers from buyers! Check out our seller’s guide for more advice. Our team of licensed Realtors will oversee your sale from listing to closing.
