"Our family loves going to Lake Tahoe so we were able to use the extra money to make a few cosmetic upgrades to the house as well as buy season passes to Alpine/Squaw Valley Ski Resort"
The Slingluff's saved over $13,000 buying with Faira
"Buying with Faira, we saved $10,000. That was cool because it wasn't just money we saved, it was money we actually got back to help with closing costs and moving...It was a really nice bonus after we bought the house."
Often, home buyers find the home they want to buy on their own, without the help of an agent. If that describes your situation, Faira can help you make an offer. Simply get started making an offer and one of our agents will work with you to write up and submit your offer. When you close on the house Faira will pass on most of our commission to you - typically 2% of the purchase price, but that can vary per listing.
No, but we sometimes require a $199 deposit to get started on an offer. When you buy a home with Faira that deposit is fully refunded.
You can make as many offers as you wish.
You can find a house online using Faira's home search or real estate websites like Redfin and Zillow. If you have a target budget, size, or location we recommend setting up alerts on these sites so you are notified about new listings. You might also find a house walking through your desired neighborhood. Homes are selling very quickly so it’s important to be aggressive. Get in touch when you find a home and would like to make an offer.
