Real Estate Startup Expands to Texas

October 15, 2020 GMT

DALLAS - October 15, 2020 - ( Newswire.com )

  SimpleShowing, a residential real estate brokerage that saves consumers thousands in real estate agent commissions, announced its plans to expand into Texas. 

SimpleShowing has created a technology-enabled, end-to-end home tour and home buying experience. The platform allows consumers to search for properties, book tours online and keep up to half of the typical agent commission. The company also lists and sells homes for a reduced listing fee that starts at 1% of the final sales price of the home. SimpleShowing will begin offering services in the Dallas/Ft Worth market on October 15.

Technology and the internet have changed how people buy and sell almost everything. With the advent of the mobile era and the democratization of property data via online sources like Zillow, homebuyers have access to information today that has historically been available only to real estate agents. But despite having access to more tools and resources, consumers are largely unhappy with the home buying process and frequently dissatisfied with their agent.

“Utilizing real estate services (eg. listing agent or buyer’s agent) is exorbitantly expensive for consumers, and yet no great alternatives exist. Agents are actually doing less work per transaction than ever before, but getting paid the same commission rates as they did 40 years ago. Meanwhile, home prices continue to increase,” said SimpleShowing CEO and Co-Founder Fred McGill.   

“This is the reason we created SimpleShowing in 2017. SimpleShowing empowers home buyers to drive the home buying process on their own, schedule tours themselves and get rewarded for their hard work with a commission refund that equals 1.5% of the home price. It’s real estate for today’s modern consumer,” said McGill. 

With on-demand, mobile-first home tours and an end-to-end home selling technology platform, SimpleShowing provides a better customer experience and significant savings across all aspects of the home buying and selling process. 

When selling properties, SimpleShowing offers consumers savings of $9,500 on average. In contrast to the traditional 6% fee, SimpleShowing charges a 1% listing fee paid at closing plus 2.5-3% for the buyer’s broker. When buying a new home, consumers enjoy a pressure-free experience with SimpleShowing’s highly trained buyer agents who focus on buyer goals, not commissions.

Headquartered in Atlanta, SimpleShowing plans to nearly double its workforce over the next 12 months and enter additional markets in 2021.
