House goes for $300,000 over listed asking price, with seller saving an additional $59,100 and seller saved $59,100 in commission with New Era Real Estate

Many homes have recently been selling for way over asking in Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, Orangeville, Hamilton, Niagara, Guelph, Georgetown, Halton, Durham, and York, including a Toronto property that was sold with New Era Real Estate.

The property, located at 23 Scarborough Heights, sold for a whopping $2.6 million – about $300,000 over its asking price.

Additionally, because the property was sold with New Era Real Estate, the seller saved an extra $59,100 in commission. With the market constantly changing and prices fluctuating, saving money on commission in a seller’s or buyer’s market is always important.

New Era is an Ontario brokerage well known for only charging a flat fee of $5,900 for the same full service that other brokerages provide, but without the 2.5% – 5% commission that those other brokerages charge.

That flat fee translates to big savings for sellers:

New Era’s full service includes a personal home owners portal on their website, market analysis, professional photography of your property, a variety of selling strategies, home preparation, a robust marketing/advertising campaign, scheduled showings and buyer qualification, negotiation, fully licensed agents and brokers with years of experience, and much more.

Additionally, all New Era listings go on MLS and all major real estate websites and social media platforms, ensuring each of their properties gets seen.

Their personalized web portal that provides sellers with everything they need to know about the sale of their home: Property photos and details as it would appear on, paperwork signed and broken down into layman’s terms, showing feedback, showing scheduling, messaging and more, keeping sellers fully informed in real time while still having 24/7 access to their agent.

New Era never locks its sellers into lengthy contracts and never requests payment until the property has been successfully sold.

“This market is extremely hot and although it’s great for sellers to see home prices continue to climb, is it really fair being obligated to pay your agent even more in commissions when the workload remains the same?” says New Era founder John Martino.

Since its inception, New Era has earned numerous five-star Google reviews and testimonials from satisfied sellers.
