Why Pay More?

Saavy Property Sellers Can Save Thousands

Sunrise Real Estate allows sellers to keep more of their money. Sunrise Real Estate understands that selling property can be complicated, stressful, and expensive. As an experienced, local agency, Sunrise Real Estate can guide you successfully through the process, and you’ll end up keeping much more of your money. Welcome to modern real estate services for Sussex County, Delaware.

Often, the single largest cost to property owners when they sell is the real estate commission. This fee, which can be 6% (or more) of the sales price, is money that Sellers could keep.

The problem? Selling property is a complicated process, and, according to financial guru Dave Ramsey, it doesn’t pay to sell your property on your own.

Simply put, Sunrise Real Estate’s Essential Listing program charges owners a 1.25% listing fee. A typical Delaware real estate brokerage charges 2.5-3.0%. The Essential Listing allows the property owner to keep more money.

The good news is that Sunrise Real Estate is still a local, full-service agency. You interact with experienced, local agents. Sunrise Real Estate is just a better value for property Sellers.

Sunrise Real Estate allows you the best of both worlds. First, your home is listed with experienced, local, professional agents who can guide you through the process. This service has real value, as it connects you to the Sussex County MLS, Zillow/Trulia,, and over 700 other sites that will market your property across the internet. This is critical because, according to the National Association of REALTORS, over 90% of all buyers search for property on the internet.

With the Essential Listing

Sunrise Real Estate will give you the market information that you need to properly valuate your property. Agents will also guide you through the steps required to prepare your property for the market.

Sunrise Real Estate includes professional-grade photos and a Matterport, Interactive, virtual tour of your property.

While Sunrise Real Estate charges a listing rate below what “legacy” brokerages provide, the compensation to selling agents is in line with other listings in the Sussex County MLS. This means that buyer’s agents will receive the same compensation for their efforts, which is consistent with the goals of most sellers.

Sunrise Real Estate’s essential listing team will guide you through the entire process.

With the average listing selling for over $500,000 in Sussex County, the Essential Listing can save you over $11,250. While the decision to list with Sunrise Real Estate might mean ignoring the “family” agent or a friend’s referral, but Sunrise’s clients appreciate the extra money in their pockets at the settlement table.

Locally owned and operated since 2004, Sunrise Real Estate is based in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. As a local, independent brokerage, Sunrise Real Estate doesn’t have royalties or franchise fees to pay.

Right now, there are buyers who are in the Sussex County market looking for property, but inventory is low by historical standards. This means it is a good time to sell property. At market prices, properties can sell quickly.

The Essential Listing program is the first truly modern real estate selling service in Sussex County. Contact Sunrise Real Estate now for a no-obligation consultation or see our website for more details.
