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 absolutely had to share it with you.
As you’ve probably already guessed, FairSquare is a real estate brokerage operating across the GTA and Ontario. But what you wouldn’t be able to guess is how easy (and less intimidating) they make the whole process for home buyers and sellers. Plus, they can save you some serious money (more on this later).
The brokerage has a massive team of experienced REALTORS® who know the past, present and future of their neighbourhoods. Anyone who has dipped their toes in the real estate market would know how crucial your agent’s ‘hood knowledge is. Be it hunting for your dream home or pricing your home accurately, FairSquare agents have you covered both ways.
FairSquare sees you through the whole process, even the negotiations and paperwork. And let’s be honest, those are the two things that scare even seasoned buyers and sellers.
Now, for the cherry on top− you can pocket a ton of cash with FairSquare. Doesn’t matter if you’re buying or selling.
Let’s start with buyers. In addition to putting you in touch with an expert, helping you with THE hunt, getting you the best deal and doing the paperwork, they also give you $2,000 cash back*. They are literally paying you for finding your dream home.
For sellers, they charge $3,999** to list with them, which is only payable upon the successful sale of your home. Compared to 5% commission on the property sale price, 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 out what your savings will be on their website without even registering. You do need to have a rough idea of your sale price, of course.
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 FairSquare has to offer. Check out their website for more info and to get started.
*How the Home Buying 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 cash back if the commission received is lower than $5,000. Where available.
**Plus applicable taxes. May not include remuneration paid to a buyer’s agent, if any.
