PropertyGuys.com, Canada’s largest private sale franchise network and alternative to traditional real estate agents, has launched a national campaign to urge consumers to take a rational look at hefty agent fees. Consumer surveys revealed that the majority of respondents thought that 5 per cent commission was too expensive. The question is: why do agents charge so much, and why do people still pay it? The co. attributes this to the lack of information provided to the public on the true cost of the specific activities performed by agents – the “real estate agent black box”. “The stranglehold that the large brokerage brands have on the market is based on fear,” says Ken LeBlanc, PropertyGuys.com. “Consumers want a better solution that combines technology and access to expertise.”
