The Biggest Mistake Home Buyers Make

The biggest mistake home buyers make is believing that it’s free to hire an agent. It’s not free. In fact, it can cost buyers tens of thousands of dollars.

Let’s do the math on a $300,000 home. If a home is being sold by an agent at 6% commissions, 6% of $300,000 is $18,000. The $18,000 in commissions is then split two ways: $9,000 to the seller agent and $9,000 to your buyer agent. That’s right – your buyer agent will be paid $9,000 to help you buy your home.

Many homes are actually marked up in price to cover agent commissions. How do we know this? Because we are agents. Our Homie buyer agents can help you tour any home, make an offer and guide you all the way through the process of buying your next home. Our agents will then refund you up to $5,000 of the commission that was built into the price of the home you were paying for. After all, that’s your money being used to buy the home so we’re just giving it back to you.

We know that money doesn’t buy happiness, but money does buy your dream home, which can make you pretty happy.
