Bōde helps homeowners sell faster for more money, and buyers pay less.
How can this win-win for buyers and sellers be possible?
Agents traditionally charge around a 4% commission on home transactions—half going to listing agents, half to buying agents. This outdated structure disappears for buyers and sellers on the Bōde platform. Homeowners simply pay a 1% fee to Bōde on sale completion (to a ceiling of $10K). When homeowners don’t have to pay any agent commissions, they can reduce their price below that of other homes in their market. Suddenly, their homes are a better deal and get snapped up faster.
Yet, since homeowners don’t typically reduce their price by the full 3% savings, they make more money and preserve more equity than if they are paying commission.
The same is true for buyers. Buyers get their property for less without paying the estimated 2% buying agent commission - a number that is normally invisibly built into the sale price. Instead of splitting commission costs, buyers and sellers can split their saved money and everybody wins. How much? On a $750,000 home, and after the 1% Bōde fee, this would amount to around a whopping $11,250—each!
