SEATTLE, Nov. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- (NASDAQ: RDFN) — Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage, will now offer Redfin Concierge service to home sellers in the Seattle metro area. With Redfin Concierge, sellers get all the services and benefits of Redfin's home-selling offering, plus Redfin will handle improvements to prepare the home to sell.
"Power is shifting away from sellers in the Seattle market. With homes taking longer to sell and buyers becoming more selective, Redfin Concierge gives sellers peace of mind knowing their home will put its best foot forward," said Karen Krupsaw, Redfin senior vice president of real estate operations.
"Determining which projects will yield the biggest return, finding trustworthy vendors, gathering quotes, managing timelines and overseeing work is stressful and time consuming. With Redfin Concierge, you sign off on the plan, give us the keys, and then rest easy with the knowledge that the Redfin experts are taking care of all the details. And with Redfin Concierge, you still pay less than the typical listing commission charged by other brokerages."
Redfin first launched Concierge Service in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. in November 2017 and expanded to San Franciscoin February 2018.
"Last year, the majority of homes in Seattle received multiple offers and sold quickly regardless of condition," said Jessie Culbert, a Redfin agent in Seattle. "That is no longer the case. Sellers recognize they will be more successful by investing in improvements and staging to put their home in the best light possible. As an agent, I always give my clients guidance on how to prepare their home for sale, but Redfin Concierge takes it a step further by handling all of those tasks directly. Redfin Concierge is a valuable and needed service in Seattle and one that I'm excited to be able to offer."
Seattle sellers who want to get their home ready for market themselves can save the most money by choosing Redfin's 1 percent listing service. Whether the seller chooses Redfin Concierge or the 1 percent listing-fee service, Redfin provides:
At either 1 percent or 2 percent, sellers can save thousands by working with a Redfin agent as compared to agents who charge 3 percent listing commissions. The Redfin Concierge 2 percent listing fee is subject to a minimum of $10,000. The budget for Concierge projects varies based on the target list price of the home. Additionally, sellers typically pay a buyer's agent commission.
