$150 paid when you sign up
This covers important essentials like professional photographs and sign/lock-box installation. Note – professional photos alone are a $100.00+ value. They are yours to keep, even if for some reason you decide to cancel. Scroll down for more details!
$1,600 paid once successfully sold
This is our commission and is only paid when your home successfully sells. This fee is typically paid out of your proceeds at closing.
That’s a total of only $1,750! Hundreds less than many popular flat fee companies and thousands less than most Realtors. If that’s not exciting, we don’t know what is!!
*Note – Many sellers choose to offer a buyer agent commission, which would be in addition to the listing and sign-up related fees as stated above.

Ultimately it’s up to you as the owner/seller. The typical buyer agent commission offered by sellers in Utah is between 2% and 3%. The majority of qualified buyers are working with a Realtor to find their home. Therefore, the majority of sellers choose to offer a commission to buyers’ agents to get as many interested buyers in the door as possible. In this low inventory, sellers’ market, we recommend offering at least 2% to buyer agents. But, if this doesn’t fit your budget, don’t feel obligated.
In our opinion Homie falls under more of a limited service brokerage. In other words they leave a lot of the “to-do” up to you. At HoneyHomb we charge quite a lot less than Homie, while providing a service on-par with the best full-service Realtors in the business. In summary, we do more of the work so that you don’t have to!
We offer the same general services as a very good Realtor. We utilize the same websites, the same MLS, the same Utah standard legal forms, and have more experience than the majority of agents in the business today. Our most experienced agent has over 17 years of experience and has closed hundreds of transactions. We know what we are doing at HoneyHomb!
