The Challenge

When a decision to sell a home has been reached, the conventional approach has always been to contact a
local real estate office, connect with the agent on duty or get a referral from a family member or friend. The general public has been conditioned to accept the standard 6% commission rate for a real estate agent to list a home. A homeowner selling a $300,000.00 house through a full-service real estate agent could expect to be charged a 6% commission (in this case, $18,000.00), plus additional fees. Enter GreatPercent, a trendsetter in the real estate industry. Over the past decade, our world – and particularly the world of house hunters and sellers – has become increasingly dependent on digital technology. More and more, consumers are going online to look for information from listing syndicators like Zillow, Trulia, and others. The internet has become a standard tool used when buying and selling a home.This trend is only going to continue, as new services and applications come online.
