How Does a 1% Listing Fee Help You Save on Home Selling Costs?

When a real estate agent agrees to list your home for a 1% commission fee, that can save you nearly 50% of the typical cost of selling a home!

(Note: the typical buyer’s agent fee still applies).

If you’re looking to pay a 1% listing fee, there are two options to choose from:

  1. Discount brokerages that only do 1% listing fees — and provide limited services to offset their reduced rates
  2. Full-service agents who run a traditional business, but will also take a 1% commission listing if the seller is referred to them through an agent referral network, like Clever Real Estate.

If you’re looking to sell your home with a top-rated, full-service real estate and pay 1% (or less!) in commission fees, Clever can help!

Clever’s experienced, local Partner Agents will list and sell your home for a flat fee of $3,000, or just 1% if the home sells for more than $350,000.

What's the Difference Between a 1% and Full-Service Listing Agent?

While there’s no shortage of discount real estate agents out there, most offer limited services to offset their discounted rates.

Often, an agent charging a 1% fee will only list your home on the MLS — you don’t get any additional help with marketing, pricing strategy, photography, home inspections, negotiations, or any other aspect of the home selling process.

When you sell with a Clever Partner Agent, you get full service for a 1% listing fee.

That means you get the exact same level of services and support you’d expect in a traditional listing arrangement — but for a fraction of the cost.

When evaluating discount or low-commission options, it’s important to ask each prospective agent exactly what services they will provide before signing.

How is Clever Different from Other 1% Listing Fee Companies?

Clever partners with thousands of top-rated, local real estate agents across the country who have agreed to list and sell our clients’ homes for a significantly discounted rate.

That said, our Partner Agents are not “discount realtors” — they also run their own businesses in which they charge the clients they acquire themselves higher commission rates.

Because all of our Partner Agents are full-service realtors who work with major brands and brokerages (Keller Williams, RE/MAX, Century 21, etc.), prospective buyers will have no idea you saved thousands on your listing commission.

This is a big advantage over working with typical discount brokerages or realtors, who publicly advertise themselves as such, helping ensure you get the best possible offer for your home and go into the negotiating process on level ground.

Why Are Clever Partner Agents Willing to Discount Their Usual Rates?

One of the biggest costs for real estate agents is acquiring new business for themselves.

Marketing isn’t cheap, plus it eats into valuable time they could otherwise be spending finding buyers for active listings.

After all, agents don’t get paid when they sign new customers — they get paid when they sell homes.

When agents work with Clever, they get a steady stream of new clients, meaning they can spend more time selling homes and less worrying about selling themselves.

In effect, they’re able to generate more revenue with less effort — and those savings get passed on to you in the form of a reduced commission rate.

There are no gimmicks, caveats, or strings attached — what you see is what you get. Best of all, you don’t pay a dime until your home actually sells.

Clever FAQs

How Can Clever Charge Such Low Commission Fees and Still Make Money?

Clever is able to charge a 1% listing fee and remain profitable because we’ve created a highly efficient system that generates a steady stream of new business for our Partner Agents.

Offering reduced commission fees and rebates to home buyers and sellers helps us operate at a high volume, which keeps costs down.

How Does the 1% Listing Process Actually Work?

When you list with Clever and pay a 1% commission, the process is identical to that in a traditional listing arrangement.

Your agent will be with you every step of the way, from the moment you sign with them through closing day.

They’ll do everything they can to make the home selling process feel simple and stress-free, while simultaneously ensuring you net the highest margin of profit possible on your sale.

Will a Clever Partner Agent Provide a Lockbox and "For Sale" Sign In the Yard?

Yes. When you work with a Clever Partner Agent, you get the exact same treatment and services as any other client, including a lockbox and a sign in your yard.

The sign will only feature the logo of your agent’s national brand or regional brokerage (Century 21, Coldwell Banker, RE/MAX, etc.)

In other words, the only people who will know that you listed your home for a 1% commission are you, your agent, and Clever.

Does Listing With a Clever Partner Agent Look Different than a Traditional Listing?

No. Most 1% or discount listings will be branded as such, making it obvious that you’re saving on your listing fee. Oftentimes, this information can factor into a buyer’s offer — they know you’re saving money, so they lower their bid accordingly.

Clever is different.

Because we match you up with top-rated, local real estate agents that typically do traditional, full-commission listings, you’ll be indistinguishable from a normal, 6% listing.

Does a 1% Listing with Clever Include Photos?

Yes. When you list with Clever, your 1% fee includes professional real estate photos.

In some cases, your Clever Partner Agent will handle this themselves — in others, they’ll bring in a professional photographer to get the job done.

When Is Payment Due?

When you work with Clever, you only pay if and when your home actually sells.

If your home doesn’t sell, you don’t pay a dime.

Why Is Listing With a Real Estate Agent Better Than For Sale By Owner?

More often than not, sellers who opt to list their homes as “for sale by owner” (FSBO) are unsuccessful. In fact, 93% of FSBOs don’t sell!

What’s more, those FSBO sellers who do find buyers typically net far less on the sale than they would have working with a licensed real estate agent.

Clever offers the best of both worlds: full service and support from an experienced real estate expert for a fraction of the typical cost!

Are There Any Hidden or Additional Fees?

Clever’s service has no hidden fees or strings attached!

We connect you with one or more top-rated, local real estate agents for free, with zero obligation to sign. What’s more, you don’t pay a dime until your home actually sells.

In return, our agents charge a flat fee of $3,000, or just 1% if the home sells for more than $350,000.

We do, however, recommend that sellers offer the standard 3% commission to the buyer’s agent as an incentive for bring qualified buyers to the table.

Note: this is standard practice within the industry — even for FSBO sellers.

Case Studies

The Situation

Spencer and Alyssa were having another baby. Knowing their current, two-bedroom home wasn’t going to accommodate their growing family, they decided it was time to move into a house in a safer neighborhood and great school district.

Of course, their desired neighborhood was more expensive, and knew it would be a challenge to come up with the money for the down payment and the move itself. As such, they needed every dollar from the sale of their home in order to make their dreams come true.

The couple knew they couldn’t pay a traditional 6% realtor commission and still hope to walk away with enough cash for the down payment on a larger home.

They began looking at potential new homes, but weren’t sure about what they’d be able to afford.

The Solution

During her home buying research, Alyssa discovered Clever Real Estate through our blog, and decided to get connected to a local agent who would be able to list and sell their home for only 1%.

Because Clever connected them with a top-rated agent in their local market, their home sold quickly. The extra $7,000 they saved on commission by listing with Clever enabled them to pay the down payment on a new, larger home in their desired neighborhood.

They also worked with a Clever Partner Agent when buying their new home, who gave them a $1,000 commission rebate, allowing them to buy points on their mortgage.

The Result

✔️Spencer and Alyssa’s Clever Partner Agent helped them find a motivated buyer and get a great offer quickly.

✔️They avoided high commissions and walked away from their home sale with more cash in hand.

✔️ They were able to afford a larger home in a better school district, which meant more space and a better lifestyle for their growing family.

The Situation

Elliot bought a beautiful new home last year and spent thousands renovating it exactly how he wanted. Unfortunately, he got a new job across the country and had to sell his home in order to move. Elliot put a lot into the home and was worried that paying high commissions would destroy his equity.

Elliot also had to buy a home in his new state. He didn’t want to bring cash to the closing table in order to sell his old home because he needed that capital for the down payment on his new house.

Elliot was worried that paying high commissions to a real estate agent would have been the difference between selling his home for a profit and having to bring cash to the closing table.

The Solution

Elliot gave Clever Real Estate a call and got connected with a local real estate agent who works for just a 1% fee.

Elliot’s agent sold his home quickly, and the $10,000 he saved in commission was enough to provide a small profit.

The Result

✔️Elliot was able to buy a new home in another state.

✔️Elliot didn’t have to bring cash to the closing table.

✔️Elliot used the profit from selling his home to help renovate his new home.
