Save Thousands When You Sell Your Home With Alpine

Pay a low fee of $3500 or just 1% when you sell with us and maximize the equity in your home.

The internet fundamentally changed the way homes are bought and sold. Things don’t work as they did in the 1950s. Time to re-think commissions, too. So we did.

Here’s the Difference

Traditional brokerages typically charge 5% – 6% of the homes selling price. The commission is split between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent, with each side getting 2.5% to 3%. The seller pays the commission for both sides.

Example: For a $350,000 home the commission will be $17,500 to $21,000!

Each agent getting a split of $8,750 to $10,500.

Alpine reduces our side of the commission to a low flat fee of $3500 or just 1% depending on the sales price of the home. We still collect 2.5% to give as the split to the buyer’s agent. The seller pays the commission for both sides.

Example: For a $350,000 home the commission will be $12,250.

Alpine has a low fee of $3,500, and the buyer’s agent receives $8,750.

That’s a savings of up to $8,750!

There are zero upfront costs. And commissions are only paid if the home sells.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the catch?

There is no catch. For us, it's a decision based on ethics. If we can create a more efficient business model that offers full-services with lower fees to the benefit of the client while still being profitable for us, then we should. It's that simple.

Why don't more agencies lower fees?

We're going to let the U.S. Department of Justice handle this question:

"In other areas of the economy, the Internet has dramatically altered the competitive landscape by driving down costs and enabling innovative and more efficient ways of conducting business. Traditional middlemen—such as travel agents and stockbrokers—face more intense competition that has propelled them to change, bringing consumers significant benefits.

The real estate brokerage industry has been slower to change, with the result that consumers are paying higher commissions and fees than they would under a more competitive system." 

What's different?

We provide all of the same services you’d expect when working with any traditional brokerage — often referred to as “full-service."  The services include pricing your home, high-quality photography, a marketing strategy, scheduling showings, negotiating the price, and handling the paperwork for closing. We also include services that many agencies do not, like Matterport 3D virtual home tours and sophisticated cloud-based transaction management software.

Why is 2.5% paid to the buyer's agent?

In just about every real estate transaction there are different agents representing the buyer(s) and the seller(s). Even though the seller(s) is the only one that pays a commission, their agent agrees to split the commission with the buyer’s agent to incentivize cooperation. Because agents are accustomed to receiving a minimum of 2.5% (or half of 5%) our structure still includes that incentive to cooperating agencies.

Are there any upfront fees?

No. Like with most listing contracts, you are not obligated to pay any fees unless your home sells. If your home doesn't sell, or you choose to cancel your listing and take it off the market, there are no penalties or fees.

Why do you charge 1% for homes priced above $500k?

Homes at a higher price range can take more time to price accurately (due to fewer comparables), often utilize more marketing resources, and have longer marketing times. There is also additional risk involved for an agency when there are more features to a home; common with higher-priced homes. To compensate for those considerations, we charge a slightly higher rate than we do for homes in the lower price range.

What happens if my home is listed above $500k but sells for less?

In rare cases when this occurs, we'll honor our commission based on the sales price. It is a marginal difference at the breaking point. You save either way.
