Ryan Ogden with HalfPriceAgent.Com comes to Studio 5 with some great news.
Ten years ago things were really different for homebuyers. The MLS (Multiple Listing Service) was only available to agents. Back then, there was no internet. But today, anyone can go online and search the MLS themselves. Now, more than 80% of homebuyers are doing their own home searching online. So, the agents are doing less work now than they were a few years ago, but they’re still getting the same big commissions. Why not reward the people that are doing half the work by giving them half the commission?
How does it work?
Here’s a buying example:
When you are buying a home, the seller of the home has already agreed to pay a buyer’s agent a fee, usually 3%. So for example, if you buy a home for $400,000, your buyer’s agent will get 3%, or $12,000. If you use Half PriceAgent.Com as your agent, you’ll get half of that commission as a gift; you’ll get $6000! It’s basically free money for you. If you use them, you’ll get half the commission, if you use someone else, you won’t get anything.
BUYING A HOME
Buying a home for $400,000
Buyer’s agent fee is normally 3%…or $12,000
HPA.com gives you half the commission
***you get $6000***
Half Price Agent.Com keeps the half price theme for people selling their homes as well. Most people know that agents normally charge 6%, 3% to the selling agent, and 3% to the buyer’s agent. For example, if you’re selling a $200,000 home with a normal 6% commission, each agent will make $6000. But with HPA.com, they reduce selling fees to 4 ½%, not 6. So by using HPA.com and not a regular agent, you’ll save $3000.
