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 to use for listing?

    Professional photography is included as part of the seller package. Your agent will contact you within 24 hours to set up the photography appointment. Your stunning photos will really highlight your beautiful 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 BAC you are willing to pay. The typical BAC ranges from 2-3% but there is no standard. 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 BAC 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 is better for both the buyer and seller of the home. As the seller, if you accept an offer from a Homie buyer, you will not have to pay the full buyer agent commission (BAC) listed on the MLS. Instead you will only pay a $1,299 buyer transaction fee, in addition to your normal listing charges of $1,500. Homie-2-Homie saves sellers thousands in BACs, 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.

  • What happens when buyers call the phone number on my sign?

    When you list your home with Homie, we assign your listing a unique phone number. This phone number will appear on your Homie For Sale sign and will provide a way for potential buyers to learn about your property. When a buyer calls the number, they’ll be given some details about your property. If they have specific questions, your Homie listing agent will be able to help them learn more and even book a tour!

  • How does Homie help sellers price their homes?

    Homie is a licensed real estate brokerage and provides each seller with a Home Value Report that includes data on active and recently sold comparable properties. The report helps sellers find the right price that’s both attractive to buyers and maximize your profit, the Homie pricing specialists can help advise you on what is marketable.

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

    Don’t worry—Homie’s got your back. Your dedicated team is ready to answer any questions and provide clarity. Text email or phone.

  • How do I choose between offers?

    In a hot seller market, it’s not uncommon to receive two or more offers. Your Homie real estate agent will walk you through the offers and 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. Your agent will help you manage all of the back and forth.

  • Should I stage my house?

    You will show your home in one of three states: 1) as is; 2) empty; or 3) staged. If you’re not sure what you should do, your dedicated Homie real estate agent can= offer you guidance. Even if you don’t professionally stage your home, decluttering, cleaning, and simplifying your design will make your home look fresh for potential buyers.

  • 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.

  • Will Homie install my yard sign for me?

    Homie now installs yard signs in most areas of Utah and Arizona. 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 typically be installed within one or two days. If you’re outside the coverage area, then your post will be shipped for self-installation. Instructions and a simple video makes it easy to install. It will ship the same business day or the next once you sign your listing agreement.

    Sellers in every area will receive their actual Homie for sale sign via USPS.

  • How successful is Homie in helping sellers sell their homes?

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.
