Turn High Commissions into Fair Commissions!

Selling a property isn’t as easy as, well, selling a property. The process is packed with plenty of other expenses nobody warns you about, including costly commissions. In Calgary, most home sellers typically have to pay 7% of the first $100,000, and a further 3% of the balance of the sale price to both the listing and buying brokerages. Both brokerages enjoy an equal share of the pie. This traditional process can really set you back a pretty penny - we’re talking tens of thousands.

At Fair Commissions, we do things differently - rewarding you for choosing the smarter way to sell your home in Calgary. We proudly represent and support sellers by charging a fixed amount of just $3,200 or $4,200 plus GST.

Option 1

$3,200 + GST: PAY LESS UPFRONT

 

  • Upfront payment, Non-refundable

  • Pay nothing more

  • Up to $300 on us for professional photography and measurement services

Option 2

$4,200 + GST: PAY UPON SUCCESSFUL SALE

 

  • Pay nothing to list your property

  • Pay upon sale

  • No sale = No Fee!

  • Up to $300 allowance for professional photography and measurement services

Even if you were to choose the latter option and your house did sell, you’d still save tens of thousands on traditional fees and commissions. If you ask us, using our discount commission listing service just makes sense.

 

The thing is, whether properties are sold at higher or lower prices, our workload doesn’t differ much. The documentation and procedures are stock standard, so why would we charge you more for a higher selling price?

EXCITING BONUSES

What sets Fair Commissions apart is the allowance we give sellers of up to $300 for professional photography and measurement services, so you can enjoy maximum exposure for your property. If the home doesn’t sell, and you decide to turn it into a rental opportunity, Fair Commissions will give you complimentary property management services for three months, free of charge.

TO LOWER OR NOT TO LOWER?

Like above-mentioned, typically, a home seller pays the commission to both the listing and buyer's brokerages. We have reduced our listing charge, how about the commission to the buyer's brokerage? 

 

While other discount commission realty companies suggest other pricing strategies to their sellers, like paying $3,500 plus GST for properties less than $700,000 or just 1% of the sale price plus GST, the industry tradition is 3.5% of the first $100,000 then 1.5% of the balance of the sale price plus GST. We strongly advise sellers to stick with the 3.5% and 1.5% rule of thumb. While it’s your decision, you can make sure you enjoy the same listing positions as others with equal exposure. Our goal is to help you sell for the highest possible price, so please rest assured that we keep your best intentions at heart with every piece of advice we give you.
