Rob and Feli were ready to sell their home, but there was one thing they wished to avoid–the 6 percent realtor commission. “We wanted to sell our house on our own to avoid that,” says Rob. “We felt that the real estate system is very broken. In our case, the fee would have been $31,500.”

But how does one sell a house when you’ve got no experience? “We were reluctant because we were not familiar enough with the process and the laws,” says Rob. “Then we stumbled across homezen. We were amazed at how low their flat fee was for the services that they were providing.”

To help the couple determine the value of their home, homezen did a competitive analysis. “Then they helped us to formulate a selling strategy to maximize our profit,” says Rob.

Next, homezen dispatched a professional real estate photographer to take photos, which they used to list the couple’s home on the MLS. Their listing went live on Good Friday and by Saturday morning the couple started getting requests for viewing; the first offer came in later that day. By Easter Sunday, they had an all-cash offer—at $5,000 higher than their list price.

Rob and Feli’s “thank you” to homezen

“With homezen’s help, we sounded like we knew exactly what we were talking about in negotiations,” says Rob. “We were elated with the results, because it was $20,000 more than we thought we could sell the home for.”

An Easter miracle? The couple was so grateful that they crafted a personalized thank you (pictured).

“We learned a lot in the process,” says Rob, who adds that homezen continued to help them navigate through the contract paperwork and home inspection. “And we’ve been bragging to all of our friends about how we saved $21,000!”

How can homezen save you $20,000? Instead of charging the standard 6 percent commission, homezen charges a low flat fee. They’re already saving money for sellers in Logan Circle, Shaw, Brookland, the Palisades, Glover Park, Arlington, Alexandria and beyond.
