FAQs on Rancho Santa Fe Real Estate Agent

The typical commission for a real estate agent when selling a house generally ranges from 2% to 3%, though this can vary based on your location.

The 1% rule asserts that the monthly rental income of a property should be a minimum of 1% of its purchase price. For instance, if a property is bought for $200,000, the monthly rental income should be at least $2,000.

The average closing costs in California typically amount to approximately 1% of a home's sale price, as indicated by data from ClosingCorp. For a $500,000 home, this would be around $5,000. It's important to note that these costs are divided between the buyer and the seller, ensuring that one party is not solely responsible for the entire amount.

Opting for a full-service agent, even with a higher commission, is often a worthwhile investment. The expertise and support they provide can result in a higher selling price, a shorter time on the market, and a more efficient overall process.

The 50% rule, also known as the 50 rule in real estate, suggests that half of the gross income from a rental property should be set aside for operating expenses when assessing profitability. This guideline is intended to prevent investors from underestimating expenses and overestimating profits.
