Welcome to Bōde

The online digital marketplace that gives control to buyers and sellers in a way that no other real estate platform has done before! We love seeing empowered and confident homeowners hop into the driver’s seat and completely takeover the process of selling their own home. 

Bōde vs Hybrid Real Estate Options

A hybrid real estate brokerage model delivers traditional style services at a lower cost to the seller. They do this by providing an agent to handle the transaction that is employed with the company rather than working for typical seller commissions. Sellers may work with several different agents over the course of their home sale. 


Bōde is the first home transaction platform that completely gives control over to the sellers by enabling capable people to transact their own homes completely self-represented. At Bōde, we fundamentally believe sellers are smart and savvy enough to sell their own homes and with this in mind have created a unique and convenient online home marketplace that benefits users in a variety of ways. At Bōde our selling experience is about more than just cost savings – although you get those too! We charge sellers only 1% up to a ceiling of $10K and only upon successfully selling their own home.

How using the Bōde platform benefits sellers

Convenience & control

Bōde believes homeowners are well educated enough to completely control their home transaction process. Unlike other services, Bōde does not assign sellers an agent. While our fantastic support and success teams are extremely knowledgable and there for you when you need it, we hand the reigns over to you and cheer you on from the sidelines. Why should someone else sell your home when you know it better than anyone?

 

The process is designed completely for seller convenience – saving homeowners valuable time, while also enabling them to maintain equity. We’ve eliminated the need for back and forth conversations with an agent (or many), reducing face-to-face interactions, and enable sellers to make every decision for themselves.

    Free access to data tools and market information

    As a homeowner, it is important to understand the value of your home. With transparent data in your hands, now you are armed with the information you need to make the decisions only you can make.

     

    The best way to most accurately price your home to sell for the highest value is to research what is happening in the market in your area. Bōde provides 3 free data tools to make this easy:

    Home value visual representation

    Attract self-represented buyers

    Buyers can browse the Bōde marketplace and make an offer on any home self-represented. This is the only home marketplace where this is the case. This gives sellers a 13X greater chance that, by using Bōde, you will attract a self represented buyer. This means saving on buy side commissions as well as your typical sellers agent fees.

    With Bōde, sellers have complete control over how much they offer for the buy side commission. Sellers can choose to offer a standard commission to hopefully encourage more agents to show their property, or they could choose to offer a flat rate, no commission, or be willing to negotiate the fee with a potential buy side agent.

    Creative marketing

    Bōde goes above and beyond with marketing our sellers’ homes. In addition to posting the listing on realtor.ca, our marketplace, Zillow and 1000+ other home sites, we also create a digital campaign that runs on Facebook and Instagram for each individual listing. Bōde also covers the costs of professional photos and measurements costs are currently covered fully by Bōde.

     

    The “for sale” signs used by Bōde to display on listed properties are the most tech advanced in the real estate industry. Each sign has a unique QR code that directs potential buyers to an augmented reality listing + a direct link to the property details. 

     

    Bōde’s marketing approach is designed to get your home seen by as many potential buyers as possible, and create a convenient experience for those buyers to be able to easily discover details about your property.
