If you're selling your home with homeFree, you chose us to save commissions, keep control of the sale and make your real estate experience better. Don’t let a realtor convince you otherwise! Even if you are using homeFree you may still encounter real estate agents who will want to work with you. Here are some things to keep in mind:
If a realtor tells you that they can get you more money for your home than you could get on your own, it's important to remember that they're likely trying to convince you to sign a listing agreement. Don't do it! Once you sign a contract, even if the buyer comes from homeFree, the agent can come after you for commissions. Don't give up control of the sale by signing with a realtor, there's a reason you chose homeFree, it makes the most sense to see it through.
An agent’s "Free Evaluation" is not free when they charge you an average of $19,000 in commissions. homeFree offers an AI tool, which you can use in conjunction with doing a few minutes of market research on your own. Additionally, homeFree works with a preferred Licensed Appraisal firm who can give you a true, unbiased appraisal of your home for only $197+gst!
Whether you sell through a real estate agent or homeFree, a lawyer is the professional who looks after the entire transaction. The homeFree Offer to Purchase is simple and easy to understand. Additionally, homeFree clients have the benefit of FREE legal review of their contract by our preferred lawyer. It's called the Worry-Free Offer to Purchase Program. It's FREE, and it's exclusive to homeFree!
You do not need to sign a listing contract to have a realtor bring you a potential buyer. If a buyer chooses to have an agent work with them, it only makes sense to have them pay the agent.
