The national average for a commission to sell a home is between 5-6% of the sale price. We don’t believe it should cost 6% to sell your home. That’s why we introduced our flat-rate commission. For homes between $200,000 – $499,000 we only charge $3500 for our side of the transaction, and still offer 2.5% to an agent that finds a buyer. There are zero upfront costs. You only pay when we sell your home and its due at closing from the proceeds.
For homes at or over $500,000, we still offer a competitively low rate of 3.5% commission. Alpine takes 1% and provides 2.5% to the other side.
Typically when a home is sold, the selling agency charges a commission. The national average is between 5-6% of the sale price of the home. This commission gets split 50/50 between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent.
For example, if a home is worth $300,000 and the seller agrees to pay a 6% commission, the total cost to the seller would be $18,000. The buyer’s agent would get $9000 from the transaction, and the seller’s agent would also get $9000 as their share.
Instead of charging 3% of the sale price, Alpine charges a flat-rate of $3500 for being the seller’s agent. The buyer’s agent still receives their share, but at 2.5% of the sale price. In doing this, Alpine reduces the cost of selling a home while still ensuring buyer’s agents have a good incentive to sell the home to their clients.
Using the same example from above, the total a seller would now pay is $11,000. The buyer’s agent would get $7500, and the seller’s agent (Alpine) would get $3500. That is a savings of $7000 for the exact same results!
The commission is paid out from the proceeds of the sale at the time of closing. There are no upfront costs. A commission is only paid when the home sells. If for some reason it needs to be taken off the market (if you decide not to sell) nothing is owed.
Your agent will perform a Comparative Market Analysis, then work with you to determine the most competitive starting price for your home.
