Throughout New York City, the standard commission that real estate brokers charge to sell your home is 6% of the purchase price. Savvy sellers are typically able to negotiate commissions to 5% (especially at the higher end of the market). 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.
We don’t charge standard rates. We charge far less. Not because we’re not as good or provide a lower level of service (in fact, we know we’re better than most and meet or exceed the industry standard on all elements of our sales) – check out what our clients have to say about us here.
We tailor our commission structure to suit the needs of today’s sellers. We understand that there is no one-size- fits-all sale, and so we evaluate the salient details of each sale transaction and present a tailored proposal. This often results in tremendous savings to our clients.
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. We will come to your home to assess its value, speak to you at length to understand your needs before quoting you an official rate (although we are happy to give you an estimate first if you prefer).
While we reduce our side of the commission, we always offer 2.5% or 3% (depending on the size of the deal) to buy-side brokers in order to maximize your potential buyer pool.
Even though you will pay us less, you will not be compromising on service, professionalism, quality or execution.
We pride ourselves on being responsive and available, expert negotiators, and knowledgeable on all things real estate. We understand that there are certain inefficiencies in the way that many NYC brokerage firms operate. With our nimble organizational structure and low overhead, we are streamlining the residential brokerage process, saving tens of thousands of dollars on each deal. Rather than pocketing that money, we pass those cost savings through to you. It’s as simple as that.
