Whether your real estate expertise is in houses, condos, or office buildings, you know each client is looking for something different and requires personalized service. That means you need an invoice that's flexible enough to capture everything you put into closing the deal — including staging and photography.

In addition, your success relies directly on your image and reputation, so make sure your invoice reflects your professionalism as well as your unique brand.

A clear, polished invoice is a critical touchpoint with your clients. It’s part of the overall customer service you provide, and an important part of whether your clients will refer you on to family and friends.

When is the right time to send a real estate invoice?

Most real estate professionals invoice their clients as soon as possible after the deal is closed. If you're charging for services such as staging, painting, or other general repairs, you might want to invoice for these when the work is completed, instead of waiting for the final sale.

After all, you need to keep your costs covered while working for your clients.

Handy invoicing tips for real estate professionals

Include all the relevant details

Your real estate invoice should be clear and easy to read, but it also needs to include all the relevant details about your commission, as well as any other services you are charging the client. You don’t want any misunderstandings to get in the way of you being paid.

Accept a variety of payment methods

Everyone appreciates flexibility in how they pay for goods and services and your real estate services should be no exception. Add electronic options such as e-transfers and online payment methods to the types of payment you accept.

Keep a record with numbered invoices

Numbered invoices help you keep track of how much money is coming into your pocket. An organized system will also help you at tax time, give you insight into your current financial situation, and help you compare your year-over-year performance.

Always include a ‘payment due’ date

Always clearly indicate when you expect payment without sounding too aggressive. You helped your clients with an important transaction, so you deserve to get paid within a reasonable amount of time.
