KNOW YOUR MARKET
Data is absolutely quintessential to a successful home selling experience. Knowing the market not only gets you insights on how to price your home to maximize your chances of scoring a great offer, but also shows you what type of properties you’re competing against.
Setting up realistic expectations will make your experience so much smoother, and lucky for you, Bōde will take care of it. Bōde provides comprehensive data, accessible right through the website, so you have everything on hand at all times.
SAVE THE AGENT’S COMMISSION
This one is counterintuitive. The conventional belief is that sellers are in charge of the real estate agents’ commission. However, when setting the selling price, sellers usually include that portion into the listing price, which is actually paid by the buyer!
To optimize your chances, by saving the agent’s commission allows you to put out a much more competitive listing price. And you get to keep more of that money, that’s a win in our books.
When you list your home with Bōde, sellers only pay 1% and only when the deal closes. You are also 3X more likely to sell to a buyer without an agent saving that transaction cost too!
VISIBILITY & EXPOSURE

Personalized digital campaigns are tailored to your home and your needs. Plus, they cover the cost of professional photos for you, and that’s a big win if you ask us. And pro tip, consider getting a 3D video tour included in your listing!
