Does the thought of spending on real estate commissions when you’re buying or selling a home make you shiver? It downright scares us to think about all the money that has been made off of everyday buyers and sellers.
At Homie, we are committed to changing the way people buy and sell homes while simplifying the entire real estate process. Much of those savings come in the form of giving up to 50% of the agent commission back to home buyers and keeping listing fees nice and low for home sellers.
I’m a Seller. How much can I save?
The first question you should ask yourself is, “What kind of seller am I?”.
Are you the type of seller who prefers to save the maximum amount of money possible?
Go with our Flat package where sellers pay a low flat fee ($3,500) at closing. Flat customers get all of the standard services including a dedicated agent, listing on the MLS and other popular real estate sites, a home value report, professional photography, a yard sign, and more.
Are you the type of seller who doesn’t want to lift a finger?
Our Plus and Premium plans are ideal for sellers who are looking for all of the bells and whistles that are offset by the amount you would save vs. going the the traditional agent route (6%? NO THANKS). These two plans will cost sellers 1% and 2% in commission costs, respectively, and paid at closing. Depending on which plan you select, enjoy services like home staging consultations, social media marketing, 3D virtual home tours, home cleaning credits, and more.
We like to emphasize the savings but we don’t skimp on service. Our priority is to make real estate stress-free. To really drive that home, we went a step further. Everything you need to manage during the sale of your home can be found on our website or via the Homie App. You can set your availability for tours, review offers, and anything else you need all in one place. Real estate + technology = a beautiful partnership.

Why we do it
Why did Homie decide to make waves in the real estate industry? Because it needed it. Here’s a quick history lesson.
Back in the day, buyer agents used to work full time to find homes for their clients. After all, there was no internet. Agents scoured the streets for homes for sale, contacted agents and arranged tours, they did a lot of heavy lifting. In fact, they had to connect with other agents to find out who was selling what when all the time.
Listing agents networked with buyer’s agents in major cities to make sure all the homes they were selling had immediate buyers. They advised their clients how to make their homes more desirable. Agents would create placards for the homes they have for sale and place them outside to gather attention.
Nowadays, that legwork work has significantly reduced.
We’re not saying that agents don’t work hard. We’re saying that the job description of an agent has changed. That’s why we decided that the way the real estate industry works should change, too.
The bottom line
For sellers, you have the option of paying a flat fee ($3,500) or a low percentage (1% or 2%), depending on the level of additional services you’re seeking.
For buyers, Homie will split up to 50% of our commission with you.*
