Homie, a disruptive real estate company changing the way homes are bought and sold, just released the results of a new nationwide survey conducted by The Harris Poll, that sheds light on consumer perspectives on the current real estate market and examines recent home buying experiences.
Key survey findings include:
“With so much access to information and resources, it should be easy to buy and sell a home, but as the research revealed, half of Americans are still intimidated by the home buying process,” said Homie CEO Johnny Hanna. “We talk to people every day that find the process overly complicated and challenging, and many don’t even know where to start. Homeownership should be easy, affordable and accessible for all.”
Homie uses modern technology, coupled with the expertise of dedicated, local agents to save clients thousands. The company does not charge clients a percentage-based commission when selling their home. Instead, Homie offers sellers a low, flat fee, regardless of the home’s sale price, to market and sell a home. This includes a dedicated agent, professional photographer, signage, lock boxes and an MLS listing for sellers. Traditional agents charge up to 6%, and home buying tech companies and iBuyers charge up to 14% of the price of the home. For buyers, Homie offers up to $2,500 toward closing costs, new furniture, or a home improvement project.
