Home Selling, Home Buying

Faira Overview: Buying or Selling

DSC_3323.jpgThe team at Faira is working hard to create new alternatives to the conventional home sales process. We have made some significant changes in our process to increase transparency and simplify the transaction. 

One of the main questions we get is: Can I use Faira with my agent? The answer is yes! Please read on to learn how you can use Faira on your own or with an agent to buy or sell a home.

Selling with Faira

Agents can provide market intelligence, emotional support and offer personalized advice on how to prepare your home to sell. Some sellers need this guidance. Faira gives you a choice. If you want this support, bring an agent. If you don't, you can use Faira free as a seller!

With or without an agent, Faira's process adds value:

  • Offers are transparent on Faira's website so all parties know the timing and value of the offers submitted. 
  • The inspection, title report and seller's disclosures are all posted on the website for potential buyers to review.
  • There is no earnest money so the contract is simple.

You have three options to sell your home using Faira's process:

  1. Use Faira free. Just start your listing.
  2. Use Faira with a full service agent at 1% commission - contact us at 1-800-571-FAIR
  3. Bring your own agent to Faira

Buying with Faira

For home buyers, Faira has three options:

  1. Buy a Faira listing with an agent. Buyer's agents will be paid full commission - typically 3%.
  2. Buy a Faira listing without an agent. If you submit an offer without an agent, you will save 3%. Watch how to make an offer. 
  3. Use Faira Offer Assist to make an offer on any Seattle-area home and get the full 3% commission back at closing.

Whether you are buying or selling in Seattle, Faira can help! Contact us today at 1-800-571-FAIR or
