A Better Way

Crawford Realty in Alabama vs. Traditional 6% Full Commission Real Estate Companies

  • Crawford Realty brings the full-service representation, advice and negotiating skills of a traditional real estate company.
  • Since we work in large volume, our agents are usually much more experienced than the ones we go up against, and that can mean savings, and getting what you want.
  • Plus, Crawford will save you money, and in many cases, provide a more professional and experienced representation.

Crawford Realty in Alabama vs. Assisted Selling

  • Assisted selling offers flat fees lower than most traditional real estate companies-but not as low as Crawford Realty. Plus, you don’t always have the option to set your own buyer’s agent commission.
  • With Crawford’s experienced, local team, feel confident you have the best representation. Assisted selling doesn’t always offer this same expertise.
  • Most are franchised companies, so they don’t have the flexibility of an independent company like Crawford Realty to work with their clients. We are our own bosses, so we have the ability to do whatever we need to make sure our clients are happy. 

Crawford Realty in Alabama vs. Flat Fee Discount Listing Services

  • Sure, flat fee companies bring low costs (sometimes), but what about the services?
  • We never compromise on service, and we offer more aggressive and experienced negotiating and representation than many flat fee companies. The local Crawford Realty team is with you throughout the process.
  • Crawford Realty also allows you to set your own buyer’s agent commission.
  • Unlike Crawford Realty, many flat fee companies won’t show your home, or even come to your home to list.

Crawford Realty in Alabama vs. FSBO

  • You stay in control with For Sale By Owner-and save money, but you don’t get much marketing beyond your yard sign, so selling takes a lot longer.
  • But we let you keep that control and decide how much you want us to be involved-you pay a low cost fee for service, not for work we don’t do or you don’t need.
  • So with Crawford, you still save money and get a Birmingham MLS® listing and expert representation.
