When Alyson and Tyler started thinking about selling their home, they considered calling the real estate agent who had helped them in the buying process. But the transaction costs of using an agent were just too much to justify.

“At the same time, we have two young kids and very little spare time to understand the important details and nuances of managing a real estate transaction,” says Tyler.

Then they heard something from a friend that piqued their interest. Some colleagues were building a business called homezen that provides online tools and support to help owners of condos, townhouses, and single family homes sell without an agent, at a flat fee.

“We really liked and trusted the real estate agent who helped us buy our home, and it was a tough decision not to work with her again for selling it,” says Alyson. “But the idea of funding our next down payment with the money we could save was too much to pass up.”

homezen helped them set their listing price, hired professional photographers to take photos of their home, listed it on the MLS, and took care of the paperwork.

“They were often one step ahead of us in the selling process–from proactively sending us a checklist for getting our home ready to show to asking if we needed a standard rent-back contract before we even asked for one,” says Tyler.

Before hearing about homezen, the couple thought they could ask a real estate agent friend for advice. “Working with the homezen team felt just like that!,” says Alyson. “They were quick to respond to our questions and any advice they offered was supported by market trends, analysis, and data points.”

homezen struck a perfect balance: a trustworthy source of information and support for selling their home with a flat, low fee. Says Alyson: “And we’re even more thrilled to have saved six percent of our sale price by not using agents in our transaction. We are so grateful to the whole team!”

Spring is in the air, and when the weather gets nicer, that means the cherry blossoms bloom–and people start selling their homes. That also means they’re writing big commission checks to real estate agents.

But not if you’re using homezen. The company, launched last year, combines technology and real estate expertise to make it easier to sell your home without an agent. Homeowners in DC, Maryland, and Virginia have been saving an average of $20,000.

Here’s how it works: First, they run a pricing analysis to help you understand the value of your home; they dispatch professional photographers to make your home look great; and they place your listing on the MLS. They even give you lockbox so your home literally shows itself. Homezen also provides the necessary legal paperwork, and guides you all the way through closing.

And how do you save that $20,000? Instead of charging the standard 6 percent commission, homezen charges a low flat fee. They’re already saving sellers a lot of money in Logan Circle, Capitol Hill, Brookland, the Palisades, Glover Park, Arlington and beyond.

You can check out the homezen website or give them a call at 202.509.0559.

Like turbotax for selling your home, Homezen saves you thousands by making it easy to sell your home without an agent.

Sellers in DC pay real estate agents over $800 per hour in commissions. That’s more than most doctors and lawyers, and for a lot less work.

Let’s break down the numbers. In D.C. the median home value is $550,000. With the 6% that agents take for every sale, that’s $33,000 directly out of your pocket when you sell your home.

Here’s how the process looks for most people. After deciding to sell that townhouse or condo, you look at a few new houses online and assume the first step is to call a real estate agent. And they tell you that you’d never be capable of selling your home without an agent.

But you can sell your home without an agent and put thousands of dollars back in your pocket. In fact, many homeowners already do, and it just got easier.

Enter Homezen – an online platform and team of experts that helps you sell your home without an agent, saving you $15,000 – $35,000 in the process.

Unlike real estate agents, Homezen helps you sell your home without the high price tag. They walk you through each step, with helpful tips, tools and support. Homezen helps you decide your sales price, get your home ready to sell and lists your home on the major websites buyers use. They even send out a professional photographer to take great photos, give you all the legal paperwork you need, and are there for you through closing.

Now the only question is, what are you going to do with all the money you saved?
