Open Letter to Agents

Dear Brokers,

You work hard to find the right house for your clients. And we know how much effort it takes to make an offer. That’s why all homes listed on Faira.com offer buyer’s agents the standard 3% commission. In a typical month, Faira brings over $100,000+ in commission to buyer’s agents.

While it’s true that buyers can make an offer on Faira directly, most use an agent. It only takes 60 seconds to submit an offer on Faira. 

Our technology helps you save time. How much time have you wasted writing offers for houses that already have 10 other offers? How many days have been spent fighting bidding wars on houses you didn’t win? All that effort, with zero return.

On Faira, only a price is needed to place an initial offer. You submit your offer to the seller online, and only if it’s accepted do you write up a full contract. This streamlined process has proven to be a huge time saver, especially when there are multiple offers.

How to Price Your Home


How do I pick the list price?

This is a question we hear a lot. First, let's get the elephant out of the room. Sellers do not determine the sale price of a home, buyers do. What sellers can do is adopt a strategy so you can find the buyer who values your home the most. The sellers may decide not to sell the home, but they can’t directly determine the purchase price of the home.

Landscaping To Sell

With all the preparation of putting a home on the market curb appeal, or more specifically, landscaping and outdoor maintenance, can end up as a less than impressive afterthought. Throwing a few colorful perennials in the midst of overgrown shrubs and lackluster edging can come off as more of a last minute all-nighter than a cultivated piece of land.  An integral part of curb appeal, a well-maintained piece of property can increase your home's perceived value by as much as 10%.  Here's how to get it ready to sell...

Buyer Frustration Fuels Innovation

The Seattle real estate market is frustrating for buyers, that’s for sure. Every time I turn on the news there is another report on Seattle housing and the high demand that is increasing competition and prices. But there’s more to the problem than just supply and demand. There’s a problem with the process.

Many home buyers have spent thousands of dollars on home pre-inspections only to lose out in a bidding war. Others have spent hours with their agent writing up offers that ultimately get rejected. Frequently, offers that are submitted with excitement and hope are met with no feedback from the seller. Not a good experience, right?

Sell Faster With Home Staging

The process of getting your home ready to sell can be more than a bit daunting. From inspections and repairs to decluttering and even remodeling, the list only seems to grow.  When the paint dries, the photos are taken and your home is finally listed on the MLS, you are then faced with the task of showing your home to potential buyers.  To ensure that all this work you've put into preparing your home shows in the best way possible, home staging might just be the way to go.

Staging your home can be the difference between a good offer and an amazing offer.  According to HomeGain.com, staged homes spend 83% less time on the market than non-staged homes. So what exactly is Home Staging? Read on to find out...
