Selling your house? Let Realtors compete for your business


Inman News reports on start-up, a site that allows prospective home sellers to anonymously query three agents, describe the service they're looking for, and find out what kind of commission the agent would be willing to work for.

According to Inman, "Sellers provide an estimate of their home's asking price in their invitation, and the site offers a commission calculator to help consumers and agents try different commission structures. Agents respond with a proposal that includes the services they would provide and the commission they would be willing to work for. Once they have received the proposals, consumers choose the agent or agents they would like to meet with in person, and Agent Invitation releases their contact information."
