The VIP Launch was last week (DECO/OPUS/Poetry), the public launch is on the 26th. No agents for the 26th launch date.

Looking for a buying agent to split their commission with me in Ottawa (or virtually I guess could work as well). House is ~$500k and I've already seen it so don't need any showings, just someone to write the offer for me and give me a bit of small advice (deposit amount, finance clause, closing terms, etc.) but shouldn't be more than 15 min. phone call and some docu-sign.

Edit: Found, thank you.

Any cashback realtors in the Kitchener / Waterloo / Guelph (and possibly Cambridge) area? Please DM me.

I'm looking at houses ~$500,000. Generally do my own research. Have bought two places before so am familiar with the process. I'm just looking to have someone unlock a door or two in the area. If I go to the trouble of looking at a place, it's because I'm very serious about putting in an offer (e.g. there's a place in KW that I'd like to put an offer on by the end of this week, I just want to see it first).

Please DM me with a link to your website and your percentage split. Thanks!

some asking for 90% cashback
others saying 0

at the end of the day this thread has somewhat turned into a bidding war for realtors to turn on each other

"IM LOOKING TO BUY A HOME I'VE ALREADY DONE ALL THE WORK GIVE ME YOUR MAX CASHBACK
- hey what homes were you looking at?
I WANT A HOUSE IN CENTRAL MISSISSAUGA, BUT IVE ALREADY BEEN OFFERED 70% CASHBACK. CAN YOU BEAT IT?"

I really do feel bad for realtors who are as desperate to offer such cash backs.
Why would I ever want my clients running to tell their friends"oh hey XYZ gives 70% cashbacks on everything" so they come to me, I unknowingly do all the leg work, and then once they find out I don't want to offer 70% cash back they run to the first agent who will offer that to them.
I personally don't do business in that manner. I know my worth, i know what value i bring to the table, and if you think that someone else can offer you more value I insist you go with them not me.

I try to build lasting relationships with all my clients from day one. I'm a firm believer in quality over quantity.
that being said every case is different. I have had situations where the buyer has done all the work, in which case I would offer a rebate due to their due diligence and hard work.

I wish all the discount realtors luck in all their endeavors. I'll continue to read this thread for some good laughs.
Its honestly ridiculous. Any buyer or seller should be looking at what the agent is bringing to the table and decide based upon that and not the percentage of cash back. I have sold properties where I have brought in multiple offers in an area not normally able to get multiple offers. I did staging, photography and the whole bit, folks listen this takes time and effort. But my premium is still less than some less than others out there. Remax? Relax its the same sh•t

hey guys... this thread has been really helpful. Want to thank everyone whose contributed so far.

But can anyone provide any recent color/intel on what the market fee and cashback situation looks like in downtown Toronto for condos right now?

Is it safe to assume 3.5% fee ( 1% list; 2.5% buyer) ... 50% rebate? Or that's only been the case for semis and detached?

Listing fee would depend on your specific details but generally expect 1%-1.5% depending on how much work is needed to sell the condo.

Cash back most will pay you 50% back, some of the more desperate agents seem to be paying 70%

Yes, you should be able to list for 3.5% and get 50% cash back, don't just concentrate on cash back, you want someone who offers cash back as well as great service.
