Aaron Layman Properties offers several ways to save money when you sell your Denton County home. Unlike traditional big-box real estate brokerages that specialize in wasteful profit-maximization business models, Aaron Layman Properties provides multiple ways for home sellers to list and sell their Denton County home. If you want outstanding service and no upfront expenses, my one percent listing option can save you thousands in commission expenses.  If you are really serious about getting the job done, my Smart Seller Listing can save you even more money! You can sell your Denton County Texas home for a flat fee of $500 up-front plus $2500 at closing.  You can save thousands in commissions vs big box real estate brokers, and sell your home for full market price!

Work directly with a Denton County resident and broker and receive outstanding service and proven results. Aaron Layman Properties is an experienced real estate broker, providing you the same exposure as those high cost brokers with their expensive “systems” and bloated overhead, but without the inflated commission fees. If you are in a hurry to sell and need a quick buyout, my Smart Seller program is also better than ANY of the supposedly new  direct buyer programs that offer the lure of a quick cash offer. These supposedly innovative programs are simply repackaged wealth extraction schemes, offering the lure of a quick close as they low-ball the price of your home and pile on opaque “holding fees” and expensive commissions. My Smart Seller Listing program provides all the necessary services to get you to the closing table, comprehensive market exposure, national syndication of your listing, contract negotiation, high quality photos, and everything you need to get your home sold…for full market price!

If you are considering a discount, stripped-down, flat-fee MLS listing service or a FSBO (For Sale By Owner) option with a third-party aggregator like Zillow, save yourself the headaches. You don’t’ have to be bombarded with endless phone calls and costly marketing mistakes. You can enlist the services of an experienced real estate professional who will help price your property correctly and get it sold, saving you thousands in commission expenses. Aaron has sold hundreds of homes, and he can sell yours too!

With Aaron Layman Properties Smart Seller Listing program, you still pay the bulk of your commission at closing similar to a traditional listing, but you also save a ton of money over traditional real estate brokerages. By presenting yourself as a motivated seller from the start and demonstrating your intent to close a sale you save time, money and the headaches that go with a slow Dutch auction (what generally happens when those high-cost listing agents make inflated promises just so they can get a listing). By working directly with an experienced real estate broker, you can still sell your home for full market price, retaining more of that hard-earned equity in your home.

My hybrid listing system works because it is backed by an experienced real estate broker and copious amounts of housing market research that goes with over 18 years of experience selling residential real estate. In Layman’s terms, you get to deal directly with the broker from start to finish on the sale of your home! Even though you may be paying me a much smaller commission than what you would pay a conventional real estate firm, you will still receive outstanding service and professional results.

My Denton County Smart Seller Listing has all essential components you will find at the big name real estate offices, including professional signage, electronic Bluetooth keyboxes, a professional showing service to coordinate appointments, and most importantly, a professional Denton County real estate broker you can talk to in person, someone ready to answer your phone calls and emails when you have a question or concern.


A hybrid flat-fee MLS listing that actually works! Powered by the research of an experienced real estate broker, Aaron Layman Properties Smart Seller Listing program will save you thousands in commissions when you sell your Denton County home.

How Does It Work?

  • Fees: $500 upfront, plus $2500 payable to Aaron Layman Properties at closing, plus a 3% (negotiable, but recommended) buyer agent commission*
  • Listing Term: 2-6 months with unlimited listing updates.
  • Listing on the NTREIS MLS, and major syndicated real estate portals like Zillow, Trulia, Redfin, etc
  • Professional yard sign
  • Professional showing service
  • Electronic Supra keybox
  • Professional market analysis, marketing, contract negotiation, and help when you need it.
  • Seller-hosted open houses advertised in the MLS
  • Cancel the listing at any time the home is not under contract with payment of the upfront fee.
  • *A 3% commission to the buyer’s broker is the typical suggested rate, but you as the homeowner can offer a different commission rate. If you procure the buyer on your own, you would not pay a buyer’s agent commission. Aaron Layman Properties would be eligible to receive the buyer’s broker commission if I procure a buyer and you accept the buyer’s offer.
  • If you need/want additional services like a virtual tour or aerial photography, I can add those items to your listing a la carte for an additional fee.

How Much Can I Save?

If you are selling a $320,000 home, close to the median for Denton County home prices. Here’s a comparison of how much you can save vs if you listed with one of those fancy national brokerage chains and paid a 6% commission which they attempt to justify with an army of administrative staff, licensed and unlicensed assistants and bloated overhead.

Smart Seller Listing Traditional 6% Listing
$320,000 Sale Price

$12,600 ($3000 listing commission plus a 3% buyer agent commission of  $9600)

Savings over the traditional 6% model: $6600!

$320,000 Sales price

$19,200  in commissions (3% for listing agent commission plus a 3% buyer agent commission)

If you are selling a more expensive home, the savings only increase. If you were selling a $500,000 home, you could save $12,000 vs a traditional 6% commission model. If you sold a $750,000 home under my hybrid program you would save almost $20,000! That’s some serious savings, and that cost reduction could make a difference in terms of actually getting your house sold in a competitive market.

My hybrid listing program is good in any city in Denton County, including Argyle, Aubrey, Bartonville, Corinth, Copper Canyon, Corral City, Cross Roads, Denton, Double Oak, Flower Mound, Hackberry, Hebron, Hickory Creek, Highland Village, Justin, Krugerville, Krum, Lake, Dallas, Lantana, Lewisville, Little Elm, Northlake, Oak Point, Pilot Point, Ponder, Frisco, Prosper, Roanoke, Sanger, Shady Shores, The Colony and Trophy Club.
