Why Pay More?
A common commission in Ottawa is 5% (commission rates vary in the marketplace). At this rate, if your home sells for $300,000, you are paying $15,000 in commission. At $400,000, you are paying $20,000 in commission, and so on. Today, a buyer can find their dream home and area before they even call an agent. Buyers have access to MLS® and technology such as virtual tours, and search www.realtor.ca themselves. In this Internet-driven, consumer-savvy marketplace, the concept of One Percent Realty makes sense and the proof is in the results - the company is flourishing, and more and more clients are saving their money.
Your property will attract a buyer if priced realistically and competitively. Paying thousands more in commission is not what will sell your property. It will sell with the exposure required to attract the right buyer for your home.

Q. How Does an Agent for the Buyer Get Paid? Do I Have to Pay Them?
A. The $7,950 commission includes $3,500 commission to your agent (the Listing Agent), $3,500 of commission to the Buyer's representative, and the remaining $950 pays for the expenses incurred in selling your home.
Q. Are There Any Upfront Fees to List Your Home with 1%?
Q. Will Other Agents Show One Percent Listings?
A. Easily the most frequently asked question...Why would an agent show his/her client a One Percent listing when that agent can show a different listing and possibly earn more? There are several reasons why: (1) First and foremost, agents have an ethical duty to show all listings, regardless of commission, unless they are authorized by their client to do otherwise; (2) Agents still earn a commission; (3) Buyers can easily find One Percent listings on a number of websites including http://www.REALTOR.ca or http://www.onepercentrealty.com. The proof is in the results: most of our homes in Ontario are sold by Cooperating agents.
