Homie Seller FAQs

  • How do I get started with Homie?

    Click “List Your Home” to start the signup process. Fill in the basic information about your home and enter your payment information. You should sign up 3-5 days before you want your listing to go live. Once the listing is live, people can use Homie to schedule tours of your home and make offers. Contact us with any questions about the selling process.

  • How do I get photos of my home?

    Professional photography is included as part of the seller package. We will contact you within one business day of signing up to schedule an appointment to take photos of your home.

  • What if I have my own photos?

    We recommend having our professional photographer come out. This service is included and you’ll have even more good shots to choose from. If you have certain photos of your home that you’d like to use, you can send a shareable Dropbox or Google Drive link to support@homie.com and we will include them in your listing and online ads.

  • Is it extra to be listed on the MLS?

    Our standard advertising package includes a free listing on the local multiple listing service (MLS) and most sellers opt to be listed in order to increase visibility and traffic to the home. Some areas in Utah and Arizona are outside of Homie’s MLS coverage but you may be able to still list with us. Contact support@homie.com to find out exactly which MLS services Homie uses.

  • Do I have to pay a buyer’s agent commission (BAC)?

    If you choose to list your home on the MLS, you decide how much of a buyer agent commission you are willing to pay. The typical buyer agent commission is 3% and many sellers choose to offer a commission to buyers’ agents to get as many potential buyers in the door as possible. If you receive and accept an offer from a non-Homie buyer, you would pay whatever commission you promised to pay on the MLS. If you receive and accept an offer from a Homie buyer, you pay only a $1,299 buyer transaction fee, NOT the full buyer agent commission you agreed to pay on the MLS. This is another way Homie saves you thousands of dollars should you choose to go with a Homie buyer.

  • How does the Homie-2-Homie deal work?

    The Homie-2-Homie deal incentivizes sellers to inform interested unrepresented buyers to use Homie. If you, the seller, accept an offer from a Homie-represented buyer, then you will not have to pay the full buyer agent commission (BAC) listed on the MLS. Instead you only pay a $1,299 buyer transaction fee, in addition to your normal listing charges. Homie-2-Homie saves sellers thousands in buyer agent commissions, in addition to savings on sell-side commissions, and rewards everyone for being a Homie.

  • What does the Homie Buyer Refund mean to me as a Homie seller?

    Nothing. The Homie Buyer Refund applies only to contracts in which a Homie buyer purchases a non-Homie home. Since you are listed with Homie, you would not pay any buyer refund fees.

  • How does call filtering work?

    When you list your home with Homie, we assign you a phone number so as to keep your personal phone number private. This phone number will appear on your Homie For Sale sign and will provide a way for potential buyers to learn about your property. Note: now that Homie is a real estate brokerage, other real estate agents are not allowed to call you for the purpose of trying to acquire your listing.

  • How does Homie help sellers price their homes?

    Homie is a licensed real estate brokerage and provides sellers with a Home Value Report that includes data on active and recently sold comparable properties. The report helps sellers zero in on a price that’s both attractive to buyers and highly profitable.

  • What if I don’t understand something when filling out my forms?

    Don’t worry, Homie’s got your back. One of our attorneys can answer any questions you have. Just email us.

  • Should I hold an Open House?

    The purpose for holding an open house has changed. Most potential buyers will have already seen your house online and would typically prefer to view it in person without other people walking around. Still, an open house can work to your advantage. When buyers see other buyers interested in your home, their interest increases. Open houses can lead to multiple offers at the same time. Download a checklist on how to hold a Modern Open House.

  • How do I choose between offers?

    In a hot seller market, it’s not uncommon to receive two or more offers. We highly recommend going over all offers with Homie attorneys so they can point out the pros and cons of each. With more than one offer, you can choose to respond to all open offers by telling interested parties to submit their highest and best offers. At this point, you can choose the offer that works best for you. For more tips on selecting offers, download our Sell Your Home with Confidence ebook.

  • Should I stage my house?

    You will show your home in one of three states: 1) as is; 2) empty; or 3) staged. The best choice depends upon quite a few factors, which we cover in Staged to Sell, an eBook in our Seller’s Toolkit.

  • How much time do I have to decide on an offer?

    Most offers include a response deadline of several hours to several days. We’ll help you through the entire process, but for the lowdown on what to expect, get your copy of our Sell Your Home with Confidence ebook.

  • Why should my buyers get pre-approved through Homie Loans?

    There’s nothing more frustrating for both buyers and sellers than when a transaction doesn’t go through. Be sure you’re spending your time and energy with qualified buyers by asking them to get prequalified with Homie Loans (Homie’s sister company) prior to touring your home. That way you don’t spend an hour cleaning and straightening up for a buyer who can’t afford to buy your home.

  • Will Homie install my yard sign for me?

    Homie now installs yard signs in select areas of Utah. The approximate area of coverage includes Box Elder, Davis, Morgan, Salt Lake, Summit, Tooele, Utah, Wasatch, and Weber Counties. Upon signing your listing agreement with Homie, your post will be installed that same business day or the next in most cases. If you're outside the coverage area, then your post will be shipped for self-installation. It will ship the same business day or the next once you sign your listing agreement.

    The hanging sign portion ships directly to you (via USPS) regardless of post install method.

Non-refundable

You can cancel your listing at any time, however the setup fee is non-refundable. It covers the cost of your Homie yard sign and professional photography, which are shipped and ordered automatically when you sign up. If you are unsure about selling your home or have questions about Homie, please contact us before listing.

The MLS and Buyer Agent Commission

The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a website where real estate agents search for homes for their buyers. These agents are typically paid a Buyer Agent Commission (BAC) by the seller. Your seller listing fee doesn’t cover any buyer commissions or fees. Here are the two most likely scenarios:

Buyer is using a traditional real estate agent

If you choose to add your home to the MLS, you will need to specify how much BAC (Buyer Agent Commission) you are willing to pay the buyer’s agent. To sell your home quickly, we recommend listing on the MLS and offer a typical commission of 2.5% to 3% to the buyer’s agent.

Buyer is also using Homie (Homie-2-Homie Deal)

You save even more when the buyer is also represented by Homie. We charge a flat $1,299 buyer fee in addition to the $1,299 seller listing fee instead of typical commissions. This covers the cost of Homie’s agents and attorneys managing the entire transaction for the sellers and buyers.
