Frequently Asked Questions

Agents you meet through Clever follow a pre-negotiated commission model. On homes that sell for less than $350,000, you’ll pay a flat $3,000 listing commission — or a low 1% commission on homes that sell for $350,000 or more.

That’s way less than the traditional fee for a full-service agent to list your home. The average listing fee is 2.5 to 3%.

The more you sell for, the more you save. With a flat $3,000 listing commission, you’d save between $3,250 and $4,500 if your home sold for $250,000 (vs. the 2.5 to 3% rate). Or if your home sold for $350,000, you’d save between $5,750 and $7,500!

If your home sold for $500,000, our 1% commission rate would save you between $7,500 and $10,000. On a $1,000,000 sale, you’d save between $15,000 and $20,000.

How much can I save in commission  if I meet an agent through Clever?

Why would a top-rated, full-service realtor work with Clever and lower their rate?

We partner with top agents at major brands across the country, plus the best local brokerages. It gives full-service real estate agents the flexibility to meet customers who are looking for a discount (that's a lot of customers) — but without branding themselves as a discount agent (and not being able to charge full commission for the other customers they meet on their own). 

Clever also offers a more reliable, steady stream of new business, with zero upfront costs on their end. This saves them a ton of time and money — particularly when it comes to marketing themselves to new customers, which is close to 70% of their total expenses. 

We let realtors choose to work whenever it aligns with their own goals. And for as long as they live up to Clever’s standard of providing first-class, full-service agents. 

We’ve found agents are willing to negotiate rates for several reasons — to hit sales targets, to enter new markets, in response to the local housing market, or simply because fewer upfront costs means higher profits, even with the discount. It comes down to what makes the most business sense for them.

For agents, working with Clever means:

The average total commission ranges from 5% to 6%. But that commission is split between the listing agent (the agent who sells your home) and the buyer’s agent (the agent of the person who buys your home).

The commission is usually split down the middle, more or less — depending on what the two agents agree on. That’s why the average listing commission is 2.5% to 3% and the average buyer’s agent commission is also 2.5% to 3%.

The 3% and 6% you hear from a lot of realtors comes from the high end of those two figures.

Is the average commission rate 3% or 6%?

  • A more consistent stream of business

  • More signs in yards 

  • More happy clients and referrals 

  • More traditional business, too 

  • All with zero upfront costs or marketing expenses

Most homebuyers are working with a buyer’s agent and that agent is expecting a commission. Not offering buyer’s agent commission can force the buyer to pay their agent out of pocket, which can limit their ability to purchase your home. It also disincentives the buyer’s agent from showing your home to their clients because they know they’ll net a lower commission than other homes in your area. It’s not ethical, but it happens.

Why do I still need to pay commission to the buyer's agent?

We cap your maximum total commission at 5%, so you never overpay in commission.

Our flat $3,000 model starts saving you less money if your home sells for under $125,000 (because $3,000 is 2.4% of $125,000). That’s why we switch to a 5% rate on homes below the $125,000 threshold.

That 5% also includes buyer’s agent commission, putting you on the very low end for both your listing agent’s commission and the buyer’s agent commission.

Plus, we connect you with top-rated, full-service agents — giving you a better chance to sell your home for more, and save more money too.

What’ s the most I could pay in commission with Clever?

If I pay less commission, will I get the same level of service and attention to detail as a more expensive agent?

Yes, as long as your agent is a full-service agent and not a “discount agent” or attached to a limited-service brokerage.

TIP: When you talk to any realtor, make sure you’re on the same page about the level of service you can expect. Once you sign an exclusive listing agreement with a discount agent or a limited-service brokerage, you’ll be locked into those terms for the duration of your contract.
