NestApple Gives Your Home That 6% Treatment But Only Charges As Low As 1%
Become a Savvy SellerThe standard commission charged for selling is 6% of the purchase price, and savvy sellers can typically negotiate commissions to 5%. We represent the savviest of the savvy: those who understand there is a more innovative way to sell. Our 1% is based on how “sellable” your home is and how realistic you are about the sale price.
Increase Your Buyers’ PoolWhile we reduce our side of the commission, we always offer 2.5% or 3% to buy-side brokers to maximize your potential buyers’ pool. There are certain cost inefficiencies in the way other NYC brokerage firms operate. With our flexible structure and low overhead, we streamline the process, saving thousands of dollars on each deal.

NestApple is a full-service brokerage that uses technology to lower transacting costs. We charge a 1% to 1.5% listing fee – significantly less than a traditional brokerage. In addition to the listing fee, we recommend our sellers offer an additional 2.5% to the buyer’s agent to engage the agent community and its buyers.
NestApple is a licensed real estate broker and a full-service experience. Clients receive the same top-tier professional service.
NestApple plugs into the same listing distribution system as other brokers (the REBNY Listing Service or RLS), so your listing will be on all the big sites – Streeteasy, Zillow, Trulia, the New York Times, and more. The RLS also advertises the co-broke to buyers’ brokers so they can focus on getting their clients into the listing.
Everything. There are no additional fees or asterisks when you sell with NestApple. The 1-1.5% listing fee includes professional photos and marketing materials, comprehensive listing distribution, unlimited open houses, private showings, and a dedicated, experienced agent throughout the transaction.
Technology and the internet have greatly diminished the role of full-service real estate agents by making it easy to search for homes. NestApple was created in the belief that buyers, sellers, tenants, and landlords can take advantage of that to have a better experience and save money when buying and selling real estate. We give commission rebates to buyers and tenants to encourage greater competition through lower transaction costs.
NestApple will list your property for as low as 1%. Traditional brokers do it for 6%.
