"The real estate brokers I spoke to all said that..."

Have you recently spoken with a traditional percentage-of-sale-price real estate broker about FIXE.IMMO?

Don't worry about it too much. A lot of FIXE.IMMO customers just like you did the exact same thing before making their decision to go with a FIXE.IMMO member real estate broker.

Take a look below. If you had a chat with a traditional broker and any of these topics sound familiar, read the whole story and let us shine some light on whether or not what you heard was a myth or reality.

Myth #6: Real estate broker motivation

Myth #3: The broker has interested buyers

“They have interested buyers already lined up to buy my property.” FIXE.IMMO tip of the day: If you want to know whether or not the real estate broker who left a flyer in your mail really has buyers lined up for your property, call them up and ask them to sign a 48 hour exclusive…

Myth #2: Getting a higher selling price

“They can get me a much higher selling price for my property.” Outside the typical negotiation margin around your asking price, no real estate broker, not even one of our member brokers, has any control or influence over what someone is willing to pay for your property. Your property will sell for as much as…

Myth #8: Upfront property marketing fees are illegal

Myth #7: The added-value of a big name real estate agency

“Only an established real estate agency brand can be trusted to sell my property” This is an absurd statement. All real estate brokers in Quebec are regulated professionals licensed by the OACIQ. All real estate brokers operate under the same professional Code of Ethics, adhere to the same laws, and use the same mandatory standard…

Myth #4: Pay nothing upfront

“You pay nothing upfront. I only charge once I sell.” Sure, pay nothing now, but wait and see what you’ll have to pay later. Paying nothing upfront means your broker has to pay all the expenses to list your property, on top of their normal operating expenses. They have to pay their agency fees, their…

Myth #1: “Standard” brokerage fees

“5% brokerage fees are a fair price to pay for the quality of their personalized service.” Brokers provide added value to the transaction process, we’ve said that all along. And like any professional, they deserve to be fairly compensated. But the average sale price of a single-family home in the Montreal area is now $400,000. At…

Myth #5: Collaborating broker fees

“I will never sell because no collaborating broker will show my property to their buyer clients for less than 2%” 7.4 In this regard, shared remuneration terms that are unreasonable towards other agencies or brokers could reduce their interest in proposing the immovable or enterprise to their clients. This is a direct quote from the…
