Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What parts of New York do you cover?

Sellers in NYC have access to our brand name REBNY RLS partner brokers. We also cover the Hudson Valley counties of Westchester, Bronx, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, Ulster, Rockland and Sullivan and the Long Island counties of Nassau, Suffolk and Queens through the OneKey MLS, which was created through a merger of the Hudson Gateway MLS and the Long Island MLS.

What about the buyer agent's commission?

Sellers customarily pay the entire broker commission, meaning both the seller agent’s and the buyer agent’s commission. Please note that the 1% listing fee does not include the commission you choose to offer to buyers’ agents. We recommend offering a market rate buyer’s agent fee for full exposure.

However, even if you do end up selling your home to a buyer represented by an agent, you can still expect to save 2.5% or more in agent commissions through Hauseit. The total commission you’d pay would be just 3.5% or 4% as opposed to the 6% charged by a traditional listing agent. The 3.5% or 4% commission you’d pay is broken down into just 1% to our partner listing broker and 2.5% or 3% to the agent representing the buyer (the exact commission amount may vary). You would therefore save at a minimum 2% in commission even if you co-broked a full 3% to buyers’ agents.

How much can I save with Hauseit's full-service listing option?

Because most buyers are represented by agents in NYC, listing agents usually make only half of the typical 6% commission. In the case that a buyer is represented, our partner brokers have agreed to take only 1% versus 3% commission in a normal transaction where the buyer has an agent. That means you would save on two-thirds of the typical seller’s broker fee.

With home prices at or above record highs, the savings you may achieve by working with Hauseit can be substantial. In New York City where the average home sale price now exceeds $2 million, every 1% in commission savings equates to another $20,000 in your pocket.

How much do I save if the sale is with a direct buyer?

If our partner listing broker finds a direct buyer, you can expect to save even more commission versus what a traditional full-service listing agent would charge. That’s because our partner broker will agree to waive the 1% listing fee altogether.1

With traditional listing agents and a typical Exclusive Right to Sell listing agreement, you’d be required to pay the full 6% commission to the listing agent even if the buyer for your property is not represented by a buyer’s agent.

1In this situation, the listing broker would only earn the buyer agent commission on the listing.

Will someone handle the entire sale process for me?

Yes. Our service is identical in every way to you signing up for a full service listing with your local agent for 6% commission. The only difference is the commission structure.

Don’t worry, just because you don’t have the time to sell your home by owner doesn’t mean you need to pay 6% of your sale price in commission. You can save thousands on your closing costs without risking your home sale by working with one of our highly experienced, brand name partner brokers who never openly discount their services. As a result, you’ll truly get the real thing but at a better price.

What is the difference between Hauseit’s full-service listing option and a listing that costs 6% in commission?

The only difference is how much of your home equity you will save. Your typical listing agent charges you 6% commission regardless of the outcome, even if it’s a direct buyer. They will try to convince you that paying 6% commission is some sort of law (you should ask them if they’re a lawyer, as it’s not).  Failing that, they will say that their fee is really only 3% as they must split the commission equally with a buyer’s agent in the vast majority of cases since 90% of all buyers are represented.

Our full service partner brokers have agreed to charge only 1% while co-broking typically 2.5% or 3% to buyers’ agents. If our partner brokers find a direct buyer, they will waive the 1% listing fee and only collect the buyer agent fee, saving you even more money.

Why aren't discount brokers more common in real estate?

Savvy sellers know there’s no such thing as a free lunch. There’s a reason why traditional agents dominate the market and the typical real estate commission in NYC is still 6%. That’s because buyers’ brokers are loathe to show properties listed For Sale By Owner and by discount brokers out to “disrupt” the industry. Why would they help a discount broker when there are plenty of other listings to choose from?

So how does one safely and discreetly save on commission without risking their home sale? By working with one of Hauseit’s brand name, traditional partner brokers who never openly discount or otherwise tarnish their reputations. As a result, our partner brokers have great working relationships with the wider brokerage community.

Why should I use Hauseit’s full-service listing option vs selling my home For Sale By Owner?

In addition to benefiting from substantial savings on broker fees, sellers who use Hauseit’s full-service listing option also benefit from significant time-savings and peace of mind knowing that you have a full-time advocate for your listing to pre-screen buyers, accommodate showings, promote your listing to the real estate community and keep track of all interest in your property.

Our service is perfect for the busy home seller who wants to benefit from the significant financial savings of selling For Sale By Owner in NYC but who does not necessarily have the time required to screen buyers and constantly show the apartment to interested parties.

Should I try to sell on my own first?

Let’s be realistic. New Yorkers are busy. It’s pretty likely you won’t be able to leave work on a whim to show your apartment. What will you do when that all cash international buyer wants to see your apartment at 2 PM on a Tuesday? Who will arrange for photos to be taken and a floorplan to be drawn? Who will guide the buyer through the co op board package and review it before submission? Unless you have a lot of free time and work from home, you’ll need the assistance of a real estate listing agent to manage your sale.

How do I sign up for Hauseit’s Agent Managed Listing service?

To get started, simply choose a time on the calendar above to speak with one of our partner brokers. If none of the times work for you or you need to speak with us after business hours, please email us with your name, phone number, property address and contemplated listing price and we will do our best to accommodate you. During your complimentary consultation, our partner brokers will discuss your goals and questions on the sale process and formulate a marketing strategy for your home. You will also have an opportunity to discuss and agree upon a reasonable initial listing price that works for both parties.

Do you have any minimum price or commission requirements?

Yes. We are only able to work with sellers with homes worth at least $400,000 or more.

Don't Have Time to Sell Your Home For Sale by Owner?

A home sale is a major life decision. Work with a real broker. We’ve partnered up with the most experienced, brand name brokerages in New York so you can work with the best for less.
