6 Websites to Help You Save on Brokerage Fees

SELLING YOUR HOME

Selling a home can be stressful. It’s hard to find a good broker who can get your home to sell fast while not draining your wallet. Here are 5 websites you can use to save in the process.

REX Homes

Rex charges a low, flat rate fee for their commission on your home sale. For most sellers, this  will land at about 2.5% of the home price – far below the industry average of around 6%.

Clever

Clever allows you to list your home for only $3,000 (or 1% of the price, whichever is higher), which is incredibly low compared to the standard 5-6% commission fee you’ll pay a standard broker.

Home Bay

This company takes the stress out of selling a home, as they take care of so much for you. Photography, listings, yard signs – and they achieve this for a good price. However, you’ll need a quote to get an exact number, as everything is personalized with Home Bay.

Listing Spark

This is a unique site that allows you to pay per day to list your home. If you believe your home can sell quickly – this is a no brainer. However, if your home is more of a “fixer upper” that may sit around waiting for the right investor – this is a site to avoid.

Upnest

Upnest is not a service so much as a comparison tool. You can use this to evaluate different broker options, and compare their fees side by side.

Aalto

Aalto is designed like a dating app…but for home sellers and buyers. Their intuitive interface makes listing or buying fun, and their 0.75% fee is hard to beat.
