OverviewSuggest Edit

We all agree that it doesn’t cost 6% to sell your home. So we’ve decided to rebuild real estate brokerage from the ground up. Introducing Houwzer: the industry’s first 0% listing commission model is here. That’s right, we’re a full service brokerage that doesn’t charge you a listing commission. Appropriately born in our home city of Philadelphia, we’re starting our own revolution right here and invite you to join us.
Houwzer promises to save customers thousands of dollars when selling their homes. In exchange, we ask for social currency: referrals, testimonials, social media shout-outs, and the opportunity for buyer representation, now or in the future. 
Houwzer earns money by representing buyers. Our real estate agents are paid salaries and customer satisfaction bonuses, not commissions. We did away with that misaligned commission structure that often pits agents against the best interest of their customer. This enables Houwzer to operate much more efficiently than traditional brokerages, and at the same time, fully align with the best interest of our customers.
