Homie Seller FAQs
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 Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a site where real estate agents look for listings that offer to pay a buyer agent commission (BAC). Depending on whether the buyer is represented, and by whom, you may pay additional buyer fees. Here are the two most likely scenarios:
Buyer Has a Traditional Agent
If you choose to add your home to the MLS, you will need to specify how much BAC (Buyer Agent Commission) you want to pay. The typical buyer agent commission is 2.5–3% commission. If you choose to pay a smaller fee, know that many agents will avoid showing your home. To sell your home quickly, we recommend listing on the MLS and paying 2.5%–3% to a buyer agent.
Buyer Has a Homie Agent
When the buyer is also represented by Homie, we charge a flat buyer transaction fee of $1,499 that is added to the seller listing fee above. We call this our Homie-2-Homie transaction. In this situation, you would pay just under $3,000 instead of the typical 5.5–6% commission. It often pays to look for a Homie buyer since it may almost double your savings!
