Frequently Asked Questions

    For Sale By Owner (FSBO) is the term used to describe a property that is being sold by the owner without the assistance of a licensed agent. FSBOs are also known as unrepresented sellers.

    Until now, there have been two options for selling a home: 1) For Sale By Owner (FSBO) and 2) listing the home for sale with an agent. FSBO only pays fees directly associated with selling the property while an agent charges a percentage of the sales price, typically 2.5%-3%. Everhome has introduced a third option, Listed With Owner. It offers the flexibility, control and cost savings of FSBO, with the massive exposure, full service representation and risk mitigation of a full service, full fee agent.

    Everhome has created a hybrid model between For Sale by Owner and a real estate agency. Everhome’s Listed With Owner program offers the flexibility, control and cost savings of For Sale By Owner and the massive exposure, full service representation and risk mitigation of a full service, full fee agent for a low set fee regardless of the price of the home.

    Also known as the MLS, the Multiple Listing Service is an online service of listings and past transactions available only to licensed members of the local Association of Realtors.

    Any residential home of one to four units.

    Everhome charges a low set fee of $2950 regardless of the price of your home. The two installments are:

    1) A $450 listing fee to cover the administrative and technology fees to get your listing posted in the MLS and one of our licensed compliance managers to assist you with properly completing the legal disclosures required to sell a home.

    2) a $2500 Seller Representation Fee that covers a licensed agent to fully represent you on the critical elements of negotiations, paperwork, escrow and title, plus our costs for errors and omissions insurance and free legal consultations to mitigate your risk. The $450 is due when listing form is submitted for review and $2500 fee is only payable at the close of escrow.

    With Everhome, you only pay for the services you use. The $450 listing fee covers our administrative costs of getting your listing posted in the MLS and one of our licensed compliance managers to help you complete the mandated legal disclosures. The Seller Representation and Risk Mitigation Fees of $2500 are not due unless the transaction closes.

    No Everhome does not pay for the sellers escrow and title. Escrow and title services are provided by independent, third party providers and those fees are paid to those service providers at the close of escrow.

    There are a lot of factors that go into selling a home like price, condition, location, market conditions and more. One of our licensed Seller Representatives would be happy to offer you a detailed analysis of comps, market conditions and recommended strategy for best results. All things being equal, you will sell your house just as fast with Everhome as you would by listing your home with a full fee agency.

    We would be happy to provide a customized evaluation report for you.

    The standard documents needed vary by property type, how the deed is recorded and county, but the minimum required documents are the Agency Disclosure, the Residential Purchase Agreement, the Seller Property Questionnaire, and the Transfer Disclosure Statement. In addition, there are several buyer and seller advisories and disclosures that should be made.

    As part of the services provided, Everhome will provide a licensed Seller Representative and separate licensed Compliance Manager to handle all the details (and problems) for you. As an additional level of support, all sellers receive access to our legal network for free consultations before, during and after the transaction closes.
