Commission calculations were based on 7% on the first $100,000 and 3.5% on the balance of an average sale price of $400,000. Commission rates vary throughout Canada.
* The basic cost to sell does not include tax or additional 3rd party fees such as legal fees, which may vary widely.

When you list your home for sale, you have options.

Option 1: Full Service Real Estate

You can list your home with a full service real estate company and pay commission to the listing agent, and in most cases, to the buyer's agent as well. In the case of the example we have shown, you would pay around $17,500 plus tax to sell a $400,000 property going this route. None of our listings fall into this category because we do not offer full service. You will have to go to a listing agent for this option.

Option 2: Flat Fee Service with a Buyer's Agent Involved

You can list your home with a flat fee brokerage service like FSBO Real Estate Inc. offers, and pay our low listing fee starting at just $499, plus commission to just the buyer's agent if there is one involved in the sale of your property. In the case of the example we have shown, you would pay around $9,249 plus tax to sell a $400,000 property going this route. Some of our listings fall into this category because buyers' agents have found the property on the MLS® System or FSBO Real Estate Inc. website, and the buyer's agent has brought you the buyer.

Option 3: Flat Fee Service with NO Buyer's Agent Involved

You can list your home with a flat fee brokerage service like FSBO Real Estate Inc. offers, and pay our low listing fee starting at just $499, and end up paying NO commission to a buyer's agent - because there wasn't one involved in the sale of your property. This happens when your buyer comes to you direct, and isn't represented by a buyer's agent. In the case of the example we have shown, you would pay just $499 plus tax to sell a $400,000 property going this route. The majority of our listings fall into this category because the FSBO Real Estate Inc. website easily connects the buyers directly to our sellers.
