It is a great time to be selling a home and we can help do that and optimize your transaction costs, with 3 commission programs that will save a lot of fees and HST expense on the sale of your residential property. (With absolutely no loss in service!)
3.5% full realtor.ca service for all sellers!
The Federal government relocates as many as 20,000 people annually and their negotiated fee for a full service commission paid to all listing brokers, is only 3.5%. We offer this to all our residential listing clients but go one step better by offering the typical* 2.5% to the buyer brokerage.
This 2.5% “co-operating brokerage” commission is important, as it is the amount found on 75-80% of MLS® listings and meets the needs of buyer agents.
On a typical $625,000 sale this saves a seller over $10,000 in commission and HST vs a typical 5% listing fee.
3% “Luxury” property rate now an option for all sellers!
We also offer an optional 3% full service package for realtor.ca listings. This has been normally offered to higher priced properties and involves a 2% payment to the co-operating buyer representative and brokerage. This saves over $14,000 in commission and HST expense on that average $625,000 property vs 5% commissions.
Exclusive Listings: Only 2%
An exclusive listing is one that does not go on the realtor.ca or MLS® network but is marketed directly by the listing agent. If we are able to find a buyer without having to pay another Realtor, then we charge only 2%, representing a huge savings vs 5% commissions. Over $21,000 in savings on that $625K sale vs 5%.
This approach has its pros and cons but may appeal to those who do not wish to have a large number of people through their home during the pandemic and also wish to avoid the wear and tear of an MLS® listing.
Give us a call to see if any of these options might work for you and we would be happy to discuss you plans! We also have some excellent buyer support services, too.
