Where Are Your Home Office Fees Going?

by Alex Hales
 Many people have bought and sold property through Realtors many times. Even many people who sell low real estate commission Canyon Lake estate themselves. Do not know where the commission money goes. After all, when the property sells for hundreds of thousands of dollars. And the work is tens of thousands of dollars, it seems that there is a lot of money that pay as work – and there is.
 
Even many lawyers, who have spent ten years. Or more in expensive colleges, fought to pass the Bar exam. And spent many years in their profession – seem to worry that the salary is too much. Greater than the attorney’s fees when all costs incurre. Compensation and maintenance.
 
Let’s start with the part that few real estate agents understand. It costs real estate companies they work for, between $19,000 and $45,000 per year for each licensed employee, seats. And use of office space, parking, real estate, taxes head, insurance, equipment. And professional support services. Whether they sell anything or not. Since the real estate business is divide between the company. And the employee, the employee will make. Three to six thousand dollars a month in work for the company to break even in the company. And the company’s share of the money. And, mosty, unproductive workers and companies raise costs for everyone. Thus, other workers must earn money to take the share of unproductive people. Many companies will only allow high-producing employees to work in the company. So that less successful employees do not lower the average. Income of the company’s investment.
 
Collection work split between the listing company. And the listing agent; and the sales company and the salesperson. Often the committee is divide into four, sometimes more. Divisions are organize within each agency. And each agent; sometimes. There are many different percentages in the division structure in each company.
 
The commission’s corporate part is use in real estate rentals. Or mortgages, taxes, property insurance, maintenance, signage, radio. And TV advertising, bill boards, magazine. And newspaper advertising, cleaning, groceries, phone, books, desk, office, legal fees. and legal insurance, management and support staff. As well as a range of membership, liability, legal and professional fees. Many companies also pay a fee to a franchise company or home office for the right to use the company’s name. Local and national agencies are also paid to cover national. And regional media, management, staff,
 
In the final analysis, a company with 10 licenses must require the employees to bring in at least 40 and 70 thousand dollars in commissions per month to keep the company’s expenses!!! I don’t know real estate agents who understand. Or believe this, unless they’ve been in charge of corporate expenses for a year or more. It’s up to him, which means writing checks to an account that costs them money. Even then, it’s hard to understand how it all adds up to such a big number, but it does. Companies that earn less than these per capita are disappearing, the few that remain.
 
Computer buy, maintenance, training and software expenses. Are now one of the biggest expenses. Many companies feel that there is no money, from the financial pressure of adding. To the buy of computers, printers, digital cameras. And the configuration, networking, maintenance, software. And computer management are always at a high cost of trade. In fact, there are even a few of the large companies that specialize in buying other real estate. And companies that cannot lost in the work of this digital age. Any company or agent that does not follow digital standards. And good digital architecture, will not last long.

Advertising and marketing costs have increased over the years. For example, when I first got into business, thirty years ago. I started helping to manage stores, buildings and developing companies. At that time, more than 60% of our phone calls were from home lines. Also at the time, bulk mail cost an average of 30 cents to create, print, post and send. And our response rate was usually 3% or more!
