My home is on Zillow, why do I need Homepie?
Listing your home on Homepie can market your property across 100+ websites, including the MLS, so that more prospective buyers can easily find it. We also provide both you and the buyer an easy contract creation tool that simplifies the negotiation process and removes guesswork around paperwork. Additionally, our direct chat platform keeps conversations with prospective buyers organized and your personal contact information private, eliminating those unnecessary solicitation phone calls.
Does homepie charge a commission?
Homepie is free to use. You have the option to pay to upgrade to one of our premium services, which may include an MLS listing, dedicated Transaction Coordinator, agent support, and more. If you opt for any of our packages which include the MLS, a commission of at least 2 percent is required to be offered to a buyer’s agent, and certain fees or listing side commission may apply. See our Packages and Pricing
page for transparent pricing. We also may receive a small percentage when you opt for certain services through our partners, including photographers, home inspectors, lenders, and more.
Are there any hidden fees?
No, there aren’t any hidden fees paid to Homepie. We’re completely transparent about all the costs for our For Sale by Owner and MLS packages on our Packages and Pricing
page. However, you will still deal with the normal closing costs associated with selling a home.
Which states does homepie currently serve?
Homepie currently serves California and Florida, with plans to expand to several states within the next 12 months. If you would like to be notified when we expand to other states, be sure to follow us on Facebook
. You can also sign up for a free Homepie account and we’ll send you our newsletter with regular updates to our offerings, new features, and expansion plans to new markets. Some features may not be available in all states.
If the contract is not available in your state, a Memorandum of Understanding will be generated and signed by all parties with the good faith agreement to memorialize a contract. Once your MOU is generated, you will be assigned to a local professional to help finalize your state specific contract.
How does the closing process work?
Once all parties have agreed upon the contract terms, Homepie will instantly generate a digital purchase agreement. Once you’re in contract, you are responsible for promptly providing all the necessary paperwork and legal disclosures to the buyer. Once the buyer has their funds wired to the escrow company, your mortgage (if you have one) will be paid off first, then the remaining funds will be deposited into your bank account.
Since there are a lot of moving parts to the home selling process and it is often a stressful period, our previous home sellers have found working with one of our amazing Transaction Coordinators especially helpful. If you choose to pay for Transaction Coordination services, your dedicated Transaction Coordinator will handle all of the paperwork, keep track of all deadlines, send out relevant reminders to both parties, and help the transaction close on schedule.
