VIDEO: Buying and Selling a Home with Faira
Mike and Shannon were looking for a way to save money when selling their home in Bonney Lake, WA. After checking out several companies that promised big savings, Mike called Faira. Although the savings was attractive to him, Faira's transparent and innovative approach is what led him and his wife to sign up to sell with Faira + Agent for 1% commission.
"I'm kind of a do-it-yourselfer kind of guy," Mike said. "I like to find different ways to do things myself if I can, to save money or headache. But one of the reasons I decided to do the 1% [agent] listing was because we were having a baby and I was like, 'I can't do this right now'. We bought and sold a house in less than a week and had a baby!"
The couple put their home on the market with Faira on a Friday and were under contract by the following Wednesday. Then, they used Faira Offer Assist to buy a new home.
"Buying with Faira, I calculated we saved $10,000. That was cool because it wasn't just money we saved, it was money we actually got back to help with closing costs and moving...It was a really nice bonus after we bought the house."
"It was Kat that helped us write the offer and submit it. One question I'd had going into this was does Faira just write your offer and then say 'hey, good luck!' Kat assured me that Faira is there through the entire process and will help you all the way through to the end of the sale."
Working at Amazon and raising a young family leave little time for this couple to deal with the details of a home sale. They appreciated the attention they received from their Faira agents and raved, "Both services were phenomenal."
Mike and Shannon now live in a beautiful 4 bedroom home in Bonney Lake with their two year old son and baby girl.
