How can WaLaw Realty Offer Such a Low Real Estate Agent Fee?

February 13th, 2012 by Marc

Walaw Realty Charges a Low Flat-Rate Fee to Home Buyers and Sellers: Simply Put, It’s a New Way to Buy or Sell a Home

One of the great benefits of using WaLaw to buy or sell a house in the Seattle area is that you’ll likely save money when compared to a traditional real estate agent.  How much money?  That depends on the price of your purchase or sale.  A typical agent earns a 3% commission upon closing, while WaLaw charges a flat fee ($7995 for deals less than $1 million).  To figure out how much you’ll save by using WaLaw, you need to estimate the price of your purchase or sale.  If you’re looking at a $500,000 transaction, then you’ll save about $7000. In other words, for a $500,000 sale, WaLaw’s fee is nearly 54% LESS than the fee paid to a traditional agent.

As a result, many people ask us, “How the heck can WaLaw charge such a low fee?”  Well, a couple of reasons.  First, we’re efficient and offer only the essential services needed by today’s savvy buyers and sellers. In other words, we don’t “find” the house for our buyer clients because most buyers find their own homes already.  For our sellers, we won’t show the home to an unrepresented buyer, but nearly 90% of buyers have an agent who can show the home.

Second, and even more importantly, typical real estate agents only get paid when a transaction closes. Because of that, their fees must be higher so that the closed transactions cover their time invested in those that don’t close. At WaLaw, we charge everyone the same reasonable fee that is not dependent on closing. By giving everyone the same service for one price, we are able to keep fees reasonable and much lower than what is charged by a typical agent for services through closing.

Holy rebate Batman! WaLaw has now rebated $1 million

December 29th, 2011 by Marc Holmes

We’re very excited to announce that with our most recent closing we have now rebated over $1 million dollars to our buyers.  And that’s not counting the thousands of dollars in commissions we’ve saved our sellers.

Since we opened our doors in 2009 our buyers have received an average rebate of $13,514.  That’s the average amount of cash they received at closing, and that’s after our fees are paid in full.  We’ve had two clients receive over $50,000 and, in an off market deal, one client got over $60,000 off his sales price in lieu of the commission.  That’s some serious jack.

What’s even more satisfying to us is the incredible feedback we get from our clients when they’re deals close.  The accolades they express about our service is priceless and the referrals they send our way is the cherry on top.

Thank you to all of our wonderful clients who have made this possible.

Another Seattle Home Buyer Saves a Ton of Money with WaLaw

November 23rd, 2011 by Marc

We just helped a very nice Seattle home buyer client close on this charming home in time for the Big Thanksgiving Dinner!  The best part?  He saved $8295 — more than enough to spring for the organic turkey and the good wine!


Another Closing, Another BIG Home Buyer’s Commission Rebate!

November 1st, 2011 by Marc

Our home buying clients just closed on this lovely home in Bellevue.  The best part?  Well, you know the answer: They saved $29,030 by using WaLaw.  Talk about a little something to warm up the new house…

The 3% Buyer’s Agent Commission Rebate is a top feature of what WaLaw Realty offers its clients. You won’t get this kind of rebate with a traditional real estate agent.
