WHAT IS HOMEBIDS?
“homebids” is a Hybrid between real estate auctions and traditional real estate. We took the best features from real estate auction and traditional real estate and created a process that works better than any other selling method in any market condition. The “homebids” method of selling real estate gives Buyers and Sellers more options when buying or selling real estate.
With the “homebids” option, real estate commission can be paid by the Seller, the Buyer or both. The Buyer’s side of the commission is called “Buyer’s Premium”. (Highest Bid + Buyer’s Premium = Sales Price).
When Selling With “homebids”
- Sellers reserve the right to accept, negotiate or reject the highest bid. (No risk involved)
- Highest bid and bid history transparent. (displayed on the auction website at all times)
- No long term listing contracts
- Bidding process conducted online only
- Buyers approved for bidding manually by the Seller or Seller’s agent, or instant Buyer approval online by credit card.
- No upfront fees required from Seller
- No property inspections required prior to acceptance of the highest bid
- Once the highest bid is accepted by the Seller, Buyer goes into escrow with all Buyers’ contingencies and inspection time frames in accordance with the purchase contract specific for the State where the property is located.
- Property will be available for viewing only at the open house dates (unless agreed otherwise)
