About discount realtors (more)
  • Tennessee discount real estate brokers offer a similar range of services and support as conventional realtors for a lower price.
  • The average home seller pays 5.49% total in commission fees. 2.5% goes to the listing agent and 2.86% goes to the buyer's agent.
  • Discount realtors typically deliver savings by charging lower listing fees (e.g., 1.5%) at closing.
  • No matter who you sell with, expect to cover a 2-2.5% buyer's agent fee (though this longstanding convention may be on its way out).
Choosing a discount realtor (more)
  • Stick with companies that offer in-person representation and "full service" (including an on-site comparative market analysis and professional photography). Avoid brands that only provide "remote" or "virtual" broker support.
  • We recommend brands with success-based fees (you only pay at closing) and transparent pricing models. Watch out for upfront, nonrefundable fees and high minimum fees.
  • Don't just rely on the advertised commission rate. Calculate your actual estimated commission fee based on your estimated home value. This is especially important for companies with flat fee models or high minimum fees to avoid paying more than advertised.
  • Customer ratings are generally more important than small differences in pricing models. Look for companies with high average ratings based on large numbers of reviews.
  • Be sure to interview the specific agent you'll be working with and evaluate them based on the same criteria you'd use to choose a conventional realtor.

Why trust us

Data sources

Our team evaluated 11 discount real estate brokerages serving Tennessee. We analyzed over 10,965,921 data points tied to customer reviews, transaction history, pricing details, and more to determine the best Tennessee discount real estate brokers.

Methodology

Using public business directories, our team identified companies and agents serving Tennessee calling themselves discount real estate brokers or discount realtors. We ranked each company based on the following criteria:

Pricing: Does the company's pricing model offer significant potential savings?

  • We estimate the listing fee and total commission rate for each brand across four price points.
  • We use this universal "savings index" to compare non-apples-to-apples pricing models (percentage-based fees, flat fees, tiered pricing, etc.).
  • We also penalize companies for upfront, nonrefundable fees and other hidden costs.

Service model: Does the company provide full service and support?

  • We look to verify if each discount real estate brokerage offers full, in-person representation.
  • We're currently working on assessing the scope and quality of individual services discount brokers offer and will be adding this data to our rankings soon.

Customer rating: Does the company deliver good customer experiences and outcomes?

  • We continually gather and analyze customer reviews from as many public review sites as possible.
  • We look to assess each brand's average customer rating; total review count; % of local reviews; total years of review activity; number of reviews and ratings in the past 6 months; and more.

Sales performance: Does the company have a solid track record of successful sales?

  • We continually gather company sales and transaction information from as many public data sources as possible.
  • We look to assess the total number of sales closed; total years of sales activity; how many sales the company has closed in the past 6 months; % of local transactions; and more.

Glossary of terms on this page

  • ValueScore: Measures a discount broker’s overall value based on its fee structure and price point, services, and customer reviews.
  • Upfront fee: Nonrefundable fee you pay out of pocket at the time you hire the discount real estate brokerage.
  • Listing fee: Amount company charges upon successful sale. Expect to also cover the buyer’s agent commission. (Note: A * indicates listing fee is an estimate because the company advertises a total commission rate only.)
  • Minimum fee: Minimum listing fee company charges no matter the home’s value.
  • Estimated total fee: Total commission rate we estimate you’ll pay at closing based on the company’s advertised fee structure and/or average buyer’s agent commission rates.
  • Active since: Indicates how long the company has been active based on the date of the first customer review we have in our database.

✍️ Editor’s note: Limited or missing data doesn't disqualify a company from our list, but it does lower the company’s ranking. We base our rankings on objective measurements, and we can only measure what we can see. We regularly try to find missing data to update our rankings accordingly.
