Purplebricks meets the needs and demands of customers in the U.S. with full transparency and real-time communication between buyers and sellers. Importantly, it also provides expert guidance from local real estate representatives while addressing a major concern for homeowners looking to sell – agent commission fees which typically reach five to six percent, on average.
One of the major benefits of working with Purplebricks is that sellers can list their home for a flat fee of $3,600. Sellers are also responsible for a standard buyer agent’s commission, which varies by market. This transparent fee structure enables sellers to save thousands of dollars and to feel less of a financial strain when making their next move – literally.

Purplebricks’ advanced online portal provides sellers with an unrivalled level of control and transparency over the entire sales process from approving listing particulars, arranging viewings and soliciting expert advice to observing unfiltered buyer feedback, receiving offers and negotiating a sale. But, they don’t need to do it on their own as sellers are assigned a dedicated Local Real Estate Expert who will provide ongoing, informed advice, becoming a true partner in the transaction, through closing.
As part of the service without asking the seller to incur additional costs, Purplebricks helps each homeowner stage a property tour via an immersive 3D rendering through Matterport, the premier service provider in creating virtual reality environments. Homeowners can also rest easy when working with Purplebricks as access to its listings is not restricted just to platform users.

Rather, they are advertised on major online marketplaces such as, Zillow and Trulia as well as the local MLS to generate maximum exposure amongst potential buyers.
In addition to receiving professional and experienced representation from a Purplebricks Local Real Estate Expert serving as their agent, buyers can take advantage of Purplebricks’ platform to view all available property listings on the market. They can instantly book 24/7 single or multiple showings in a row with Purplebricks properties, “tour” a property through a 3D model from the comfort of their home and submit and negotiate offers in real-time.

Buyers and sellers can also safely and seamlessly communicate with each other, which makes things happen faster, providing them with greater flexibility, control and transparency than ever before. As an added benefit, buyers who select Purplebricks to serve as their agent will receive a $1,000 rebate on closing.
