Major Ontario real estate brokerage helps residents save money as housing market cools

Published on July 25, 2022 at 3:43 p.m.

With the turbulent housing market beginning to calm down in recent months, those who decide to sell are receiving less than expected – and New Era Real Estate knows that every penny counts.

The leading real estate brokerage, which serves Ontario with its flagship office in Mississauga, is the only brokerage to charge a flat fee of $5,900 for full service, rather than the standard 2.5% commission to 5% that most other brokerages charge.

These fixed costs translate into huge savings for sellers, which is especially valuable now that housing prices in many parts of the province are stabilizing and in some cases even falling due to lower demand. .

In Mississauga, for example, a recent report saw June home sales fall 42.9% from June of last year. Home sales were 26.9% below the five-year average and 38.8% below the 10-year average for the month of June.

A similar situation is occurring in Halton Region, where benchmark prices fell in Oakville and Milton as higher interest rates cooled the market.

“Commissions are out of control and as this market remains volatile, it’s more important than ever to save on excessive real estate commissions,” said John Martino, Founder of New Era Real Estate.

“We want to maintain the full service that everyone wants but at a fair price.”

New Era currently serves Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Orangeville, Hamilton, Niagara, Guelph, Georgetown, Halton, Durham and York.

In addition to the more affordable price, New Era does not lock its sellers into lengthy contractual commitments, and no payment is required until the property is successfully sold and the transaction is completed.

New Era’s comprehensive service includes personal home owner portal, market analysis, professional photography of your property, a variety of sales strategies, home preparation, a strong marketing/advertising campaign, scheduled visits and qualification of buyers, negotiation, and much more. All New Era listings are posted on MLS and all major real estate websites and social media platforms.

All New Era agents and brokers are fully licensed with years of experience, and salespeople are paired with agents who specialize in their field.

Sellers also have access to a personalized web portal that provides everything they need to know about selling their home: photos and details of the property as they would appear on, documents signed and broken down in simple terms, showing feedback, showing calendar, messaging and more, keeping sellers fully informed in real time while having 24/7 access to their agent.

Since its inception, the brokerage has garnered numerous five-star Google reviews from sellers who have appreciated New Era’s affordability, simplicity, and convenience.

Residents wondering how much their home is worth can contact New Era Real Estate directly for a free consultation, or use their website, which allows you to accurately determine how much your home is worth and how much you could save by signing up with New Era.
