When selling your home, Door charges a flat fee of $5,000 paid at close.
When purchasing a home with Door, we will rebate back to you, after close, 1% of the purchase price of the home (subject to terms & conditions). Ask your Door Agent how you can increase the size of your cash back!
In either case, you'll receive a fantastic, full-service real estate brokerage experience.
If you do not offer 3% commission to buyer’s brokers, the unfortunate truth is that your home will not be shown as often as it should. While offering 3% commission is not required, Door only works with sellers who are willing to offer 3% commission. In our experience, not doing so results in listing that tends to be discriminated against.
There isn't one. You can read reviews from some of our hundreds of thrilled clients about their experence with Door here, on zillow.
As a Buyer, we: help you with financing, search for homes, show you homes, handle your offers, manage the paperwork, see the transaction through to title, and negotiate to get you the best price.
As a seller, we: use our pricing process to expertly (and correctly) price your home, stage your home, take professional photos, craft a 3D model, market the home via the MLS and more than 90 websites (including Zillow/Trulia/Realtor.com), manage showings and offers, negotiate on your behalf, and see the transaction through to title.
We only work with sellers who are willing to offer 3% buyer’s agent commission (BAC). The unfortunate truth is that some traditional agents will discriminate against (i.e. not show) homes that do not offer 3% BAC.
Yes, it's free. One of our fantastic Field Agents will meet you at your home, or on the phone with our expertly-crafted valuation. You won't have to sign anything until you are ready for Door to list your home.
No. If Door is representing you to sell your home, your Door Listing Agent will not be at showings. S/he will follow up actively with all agents who show your home to get their feedback.
If an unrepresented buyer wants to see your home, we will designate a Door Field Agent to show the home.
A listing agreement with Door is generally 4-6 months. It may be longer for homes that are over $1,000,000, as they tend to have a higher average number of days on market.
In every real estate transaction there is a buyer (the “buy side”) and a seller (the “sell side”). With that in mind, there are two “sides” in every real estate transaction. Traditional real estate agents usually charge 3% commission per side, paid at close, for a total of 6% commission.
This is a common misconception. While the Buyer does not directly write a check to his/her real estate agent, rest assured everyone pays commission. There is a 6% pool of commission that is paid to the Seller’s real estate broker upon closing. The Seller’s broker usually then pays the Buyer’s broker half of the commission, i.e. 3%, as compensation. As a Buyer, your agent is compensated 3% of the gross sales price.
When you work with Door as a buyer, you'll get 1% of the purchase price as cash back - typically thousands of dollars - after close!
No. Door only earns a fee when the home sale or purchase is successfully closed.
