Redmond Ridge #1 sold on Faira for $40,000 more than Redmond Ridge #2. This was actually $50,000 better if we compare it to the last sale price.

In fact, the seller of #1 was hoping for $800,000, but got $56,000 more and also saved $25,000 in commission, thereby making a net gain of $80,000+ using Faira. She was interviewed by Seattle's CBS affiliate KIRO - watch the story:


Here's why Faira delivered a better outcome:

  • Faira's technology allowed buyers and their agents to easily submit an offer online
  • Every buyer received feedback on their offer in real time
  • The Faira process brought 40% more buyers to this home because they could submit an offer without using an agent. 

Faira helped the buyers by giving them all the information on this home upfront including a full independent home inspection, title report, seller disclosures and HOA documentation. Because this critical information was available for download right on the Faira listing, buyers could feel confident making their best offer.

For the seller, Faira provided all the services needed completely free including the MLS listing, professional photos, home inspection, title report and marketing materials. The seller of home #1 saved 3% on commission and Faira's technology enabled the seller to get the true market value for their home.
