A Better Way to Buy and Sell a Home
How you Save...
On average, a traditional agent charges you 3-4% of your home's sale price to sell your home (the total fee is 6-7% with 3% going to the agent that represents the Buyer for your home). If you agree to Buy and Sell with us... we charge just 1.5% (with a minimum fee of $2,500), without forcing you to compromise on service (the total fee is 4.5%). As an example, on a $400,000 home you would save $6,000 in fees by buying and selling with our team instead of a traditional agent:
We use the latest technology and strategic partnerships to make selling your home easier for everyone, so we can afford to give you both better service and lower fees!
How Real Estate Commissions Work
Brokerages charge a commission for the services they provide. When you sell your home with a traditional brokerage, on average you pay your agent 3-4% and the buyer's agent 3% — for a total of 6-7% of the home's sale price.
When you agree to buy and sell with us, you pay just half the normal listing fee (1.5% of your home's sale price with a minimum fee of $2,500), yet you receive a more advanced marketing plan, and a much more complete range of services than you'd receive from the traditional agent. To be clear, we are not limited service / discount brokers (who simply list your home on the MLS and a handful of real estate websites and allow you to handle the details of actually selling your home) and rather we provide the complete range of real estate listing services.
While you still have to pay the 3% buyer broker fee (this is paid out to the agent that represents the buyer for your home), your total brokerage fee is 4.5%, NOT 6-7%. Plus, we never charge an up-front fee and there are no hidden fees.
As the buyer, you pay nothing for the services we provide as your buyer's agent, and rather we are paid by the listing broker via the 3% buyer broker fee the seller agreed to when they signed the listing agreement with their listing agent. So when you agree to buy and sell with us you not only receive our Buyer Agency Services FREE OF CHARGE (this applies regardless of whether you purchase an existing home, or a newly built home from one of our local Central Ohio builders), but you also save 1.5-2.5% on the sale of your current home!
