We’ll just come out and say it – any real estate transaction, buying or selling, is a financially and emotionally draining task (speaking from experience), especially in the crazy GTA market. So when we came across FairSquare Group Realty (FairSquare), we just had to share it with you.
As you have probably already guessed, FairSquare is a real estate brokerage firm operating in the GTA and Ontario. But what you might not guess is how easy (and less intimidating) they make the whole process for home buyers and sellers. Plus, they can save you a lot of money (more on that later).
The brokerage has a massive team of experienced realtors who know the past, present, and future of their neighborhoods. Anyone who’s dipped their toes into the real estate market knows how crucial your agent’s knowledge of the hood is. From finding your dream home to pricing your home precisely, FairSquare agents have you covered both ways.
FairSquare supports you throughout the process, even negotiations and paperwork. And let’s be honest, those are the two things that scare off even seasoned buyers and sellers.
Now, for the icing on the cake, you can pocket a ton of money with FairSquare. It doesn’t matter if you are buying or selling.
Let’s start with the buyers. In addition to connecting you with an expert, helping you with THE hunt, finding you the best deal and doing the paperwork, they also give you $2,000 cash back*. They literally pay you to find your dream home.
For sellers, they charge $3,999** to register with them, which is only payable upon the successful sale of your home. Compared to a 5% commission on the selling price of the property, that’s thousands of dollars in commission savings! In fact, they saved Ontario home sellers an average of $18,500*** in commission last year!
You can actually check what your savings will be on their website without even signing up. Of course, you should have a rough idea of your selling price.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer/seller or on your umpteenth home, you don’t want to miss out on the convenience and savings that FairSquare has to offer. Check their website for more information and to get started.
*How Homebuying Service Cash Back Works: FairSquare Group Realty will share with the buyer the commission it receives from the seller’s agent up to a maximum of $2,000 in cash back . No cashback if commission received is less than $5,000. Where available.
**Plus applicable taxes. Cannot include compensation paid to a buyer’s agent, if any.
