In its effort to make real estate transactions easy and transparent, Bōde has just launched a new feature that allows any buyer in Alberta to make an offer on any of the 16,000+ active listings in the Bōde marketplace for free. This includes all MLS listings in Alberta as well as Bōde’s own listings.
Home buyers are now empowered to search and favourite properties, see sold data, message, request showings, and, ultimately, make offers on any property in the Bōde marketplace. Many customers across Alberta are already taking advantage of these features and saving thousands of dollars in commission as a result.
By signing up for a free account, Bōde users can formulate an offer including pricing, terms, timing and conditions. This is all conveniently done online. Having completed almost 100 home transactions in the past 6 months, the experienced Bōde team is there for support at every step.
“What we’ve done is offer more choice in our home province,” says Robert Price, Chief Executive Officer at Bōde. “As a buyer, you can buy on your own or with agent representation. In the UK, Ireland, Australia, and Scandinavia over 95% of buyers are self-represented, compared to just 10% in Canada. Bōde’s new functionality makes it easy for Albertans to buy without a REALTOR, and save significantly.”
While there is a 1% fee for sellers using Bōde, the marketplace is completely free for buyers with the commission cost savings on every listing automatically estimated for buyers.
