“Cy understands that real estate isn't the same game as it was even 10 years ago. Gone are the days of open houses and huge Realtor fees. With his outstanding service and market knowledge, he was able to deliver in our move from Urbandale to Clive" - Tom Jackovin

Average Days on Market: Selling Homes Faster, for Less

Space Simply doesn’t just sell homes, we sell homes faster. On average, the homes we list remain on the market for a mere 29 days. That is 68 days faster than the Des Moines metro area average (97 days) over the same period.

“True to turn-key service, Cy leveraged technology, emails, and phone calls to handle the entire sale to closing in 30 days after only being on the market for 9 days - in an IOWA WINTER!” - Daniel Au

Sale Price vs. List Price: Retain More of Your Proceeds

Our clients’ bottom line is one of our main priorities, which is why we utilize in-depth market research to make sure each home is listed and sold for the optimal amount. On average, the homes sold with Space Simply retained 99.5% of their listing price compared to the 96.6% industry average.

Client Savings: Benefits of Flat-Fee Listings

Using our flat-fee selling process, Space Simply has been able to help our clients save thousands of dollars - literally. Since launching in January, we have saved a combined $289,127.08 in equity for our clients (calculated using Space Simply's $2,495 flat fee listing price compared to a 3.5% listing fee). That is an average of $5,256.86 per listing!

“Cy helped me understand the process, gave great advice on staging, kept me informed before and after every showing and at every stage during negotiations and the sale, and helped me get the best price possible for my home. His flat fee arrangement helped me to maximize proceeds to put toward my dream home.” 

- Erin Rollenhagen
