Are there real estate agents involved in the sale?
Homepie’s platform is designed to help buyers and sellers complete a sale from beginning to end. Neither the buyer nor seller needs a real estate agent which allows an overall savings of up to 6% or more of the purchase price; the typical commission a real estate agent would charge, depending on your area.
We do offer a flat-fee MLS option where you pay us a fee to simply list the property on the MLS, however, we do not represent you if you do this. There is no listing commission due, but the MLS does require all listing to have an offer of commission to a buyer’s agent.
We do offer other packages to those sellers who would like some agent representation and advice. See our Pricing page for details of all current product offerings.
The MLS is something we highly recommend. It gives your listing the amount of exposure needed to compete with all other properties for sale and it gets your listing in front of the right buyers. Adding your listing to the MLS automatically syndicates your listing to all of the major real estate websites like Zillow, Realtor.com, and Redfin. These sites have millions of monthly visitors so this is a huge help for serious sellers. The value of the market exposure you get typically far exceeds the cost of paying a buyer’s agent to bring a buyer.
