Whether we’re selling a home for $500,000 or $5,000,000, you will get the same level of care and service. We are no average brokerage – We provide a level of service in excess of what you typically get from agents at larger companies in spite of charging up to 50% less than those companies do.
Sell for Less
The real estate market has changed dramatically in recent years, but commissions have not. We don’t think that makes sense.
Flexible Commissions for a Changing Market
The standard commission that real estate brokers charge to sell your home in NYC is 6% of the sales price. Savvy sellers may able to negotiate commissions to 5% (and, 4% in Westchester). At Digs, we represent the savviest of the savvy – those who understand there is a smarter way to sell and want to keep more of their money in their pockets.
Digs Sell-Side Commissions
We tailor our commission structure to suit the needs of today’s sellers. Our rates are dependent on a number of factors, including the unit’s market value, how “sellable” your home is and how realistic you are about the sale price.
Buy-Side Broker Commissions
While we reduce our side of the commission, we always suggest offering a market commission to buy-side brokers in order to maximize your potential buyer pool.
Full Service with No Compromises
With Digs, you always receive excellent service, professionalism, quality and execution at a fraction of the cost and with a personal touch.
