Why We Do, What We Do – Solution to an Outdated Industy

New Era Real Estate – Why We Do, What We Do


We get asked often why we only charge $5,900 when we can charge a lot more. Simply put, it doesn’t cost 2.5% to sell a home, answer this, why when the average price was significantly lower than today’s $1,100,000 realtors were able to sell the property and were more than happy to receive their 2.5% but now that prices have skyrocketed they believe their commission should too? Does that make sense? Even though agents are not responsible for the increase in home prices. Why should their commission be tied to the sale price? The job hasn’t changed, it’s the same as it was in previous years and with advancements in modern technology property exposure is greater than ever before.

We simply want to correct an outdated industry and offer our clients a fair flat fee, not a discounted fee for the same full-service homeowners expect and want. Our track record and reviews speak for themselves. Initially people feel we are too good to be true which is fair given the years of deception within the industry but quickly realize after we sell their home and save them thousands that spending a small fortune on commission is ridiculous.

Be cautious when interviewing agents who are quick to lower their commission only after you state New Era will sell your home for $5,900 flat. Ask yourself why only when there is competition from New Era Real Estate do agents jump to reducing their commission? If they can successfully get the job done for a more fair commission should they not offer you that from the start? And why when a buyer contacts the listing agent to see a home directly the agent feels they deserve the buying commission on top of what they are already making? As such New Era Real Estate believes that the buying commission should be removed for the seller saving them even more! Which is why when New Era sells your home to someone without an agent they do just that, remove the buying commission.

We love helping our sellers’ gain more financial freedom to spend their hard earned money on more important things in life besides an agent’s commission. Tens of thousands of dollars go a very long way when planning for the next stage in life. Maybe it’s to help with the downpayment of your next home, maybe your kids post secondary schooling, maybe for that trip you always wanted to take but life got in the way. Whatever it is we are here to help make it a reality.

At New Era Real Estate our goal is to put our clients before commission, a brokerage built for the homeowner, focused on service and not commission. We are fully dedicated to saving homeowners thousands with emphasis on transparency and honesty. #wesellyousave
