Homeowner saves over $64,000 for their dream home

Published February 3, 2022 at 11:39 am

Affordable commission is the primary goal of New Era Real Estate, an Ontario brokerage operating in Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Orangeville, Hamilton, Niagara, Guelph, Georgetown, Halton, Durham, and York.

As housing prices continue to steeply rise, so too has commission, requiring homeowners to pay much more out of pocket to get their homes sold.

New Era’s solution: Instead of charging 2.5% – 5% commission like most standard brokerages, they charge a fair flat fee of $5,900.

That affordable commission can make all the difference – one homeowner recently sold their home in just three days with New Era Real Estate, selling their property for over $200k over asking. The seller saved a whole $64,100 in commission thanks to New Era representing the seller and buyer, which allowed them to waive the cooperating commission.

With the money they saved, the seller was able to successfully outbid 12 other offers on their dream home.

For residents wondering how much they could save on commission, New Era’s website allows you to accurately determine how much your home is worth, how much it could sell for, and how much of those savings would get passed on to you compared to other brokerages.

In addition to the more affordable full service, New Era doesn’t lock its sellers into lengthy contract commitments, and they don’t ask for any payment at all until the property has been sold and the deal closed.

What’s most impressive is that if they sell both sides (meaning there is no buyer agent) they will waive the buyer agent commission instead of pocketing it themselves — a rarity in the industry.


New Era’s full service includes market analysis, professional photography of your property, a variety of selling strategies, home preparation, a robust marketing/advertising campaign, schedule showings and buyer qualification, negotiation, and more.

Sellers also get access to a personalized web portal that provides everything they need to know about the sale of their home: Comparable properties, showing feedback, showing scheduling, messaging and more, keeping sellers fully informed in real time while still having 24/7 access to their agent.

All of New Era’s agents and brokers are fully licensed with years of experience, and sellers are matched with agents that specialize in their area.

New Era Real Estate’s unique approach to selling comes in response to rising property values throughout Ontario, which have allowed real estate agents to rank in much more money for the same amount of work.

“Why were agents able to sell a home for $250,000 at 2.5% – 5%, but now think it’s justified to charge the same 2.5% – 5% for the same amount of work – if not less – for a million-dollar home?” asks New Era founder John Martino.

“New Era Real Estate offers everything you would expect from ‘traditional’ brokerages, but at a fair price.”

The reviews and testimonials speak for themselves, with numerous five-star Google reviews from sellers who appreciated the affordability, simplicity and convenience that New Era brought to the selling process.
