How can FairSquare Group Realty Charge So Little?

We are proud of our business model because it allows Canadians to list their homes for $3,499, saving thousands in commission! (Keep in mind, you will likely still pay commission to the agent who brings a buyer for your home). FairSquare Group Realty (FairSquare) saved Canadian home sellers over $59 million in 2020, all while receiving professional support at every stage of their selling process.  

But what’s the catch? 

No catch! We provide in-house marketing and advertising services to our real estate agents so they don’t have to spend their valuable time looking for new clients – that eliminates their individual marketing costs and frees up their time to take on more clients. Our cutting-edge technology also allows them to focus on their home buyers and sellers, while our centralized professionals gather leads and provide customer support – that cuts out the need to pay for multiple traditional branch offices and all of the expenses that go with it. All told, these differences allow us to pass on impressive cost savings to our customers. 

What does it mean that I pay a “fixed fee to list” my home? 

At FairSquare, we don’t charge you a percentage of your home’s value. Whether your home is $400,000 or $4 million, our fee stays the same. In terms of cooperating commission, your FairSquare agent will review the market conditions in your area and discuss your options with you, but the fact remains, our home sellers save thousands in commission listing their home with FairSquare.     

How do your agents get paid? 

Our business model allows each of our REALTORS® to list hundreds of homes per year, compared to the single- or double-digit number of listings the average REALTOR® completes. How can our REALTORS® do so many deals each year? Because we have in-office staff who handle lead generation, customer support, and marketing. A typical real estate agent spends a lot of time soliciting while our REALTORS® get to do what they do best each and every day - interact with home sellers and buyers! 

So, just as it’s important to provide incredible savings and outstanding service to our clients, equally important is caring for our amazing professionals. That’s why we offer our experienced real estate agents enhanced compensation packages for a job well done. They also enjoy paid vacations, substantial benefits packages, and we cover all their professional fees and dues. Happy employees make happy clients, and everybody wins.

No cash back if the commission received is lower than $5,000. Where available. ‖ Total savings based on a commission of 5% in Ontario and Manitoba and 7%/3% in Alberta, less a buyer agent commission estimated at 2.5% in Ontario, 2% in Manitoba and 3.5%/1.5% in Alberta, taking into account fees paid to FairSquare Group Realty and applicable taxes, from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
