What else should I know as a buyer?
In traditional real estate transaction, a commission is paid to the Buyer and Seller agents. Typically, this commission is 5-6% of the final selling price, which is split between the two agents. When Reali represents a Buyer, we give our full commission back to the buyer at close of escrow. So, if our commission is 2.5%, we pass that on to the Buyer, minus our $4,950 flat transaction fee.This means many thousands of dollars for Buyers to use toward their mortgage, to pay for upgrades or anything else they desire.
No, you can work with us on any property available and listed in the Multiple Listings Service (MLS) for the SF Bay Area. You can use the Reali app and receive our exclusive Buyer Cash Back benefit when we represent you, even if we are not listing the home you want to purchase.
No! Reali’s innovative app works in concert with our experienced team of Reali Experts to ensure a smooth and interactive transaction. Every Reali Expert is a licensed real estate professional, who can guide you through every step of the process. Importantly, Reali Experts do not work on commission, so they are driven by your success, not theirs. Your Reali Expert is also supported by Reali mortgage experts and an extended team of project managers, transaction coordinators and more.
