Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

What is Felix?
Felix Homes is the only real estate platform that gives homeowners the certainty of a guaranteed sale and an upfront cash payment to help with everyday expenses. We also provide an incentive structure that gets sellers the highest price.
Why was Felix created?
Felix was started because the current selling process is broken. Traditional agents are not acting in their clients’ best interest. Simply put, agents are incentivized to sell your home quickly, not for the highest price. Felix was created to be a consumer-friendly way to sell your home that aligns seller and agent interests. At Felix, we only make money when you do.
How is Felix different from traditional brokers?
Traditional brokers get paid an explicit commission, typically 6%, if they are able to sell your home. While this may sound great in practice, agents are incentivized to sell your home quickly, not for the highest price. Why? Because time is money, and decreasing the sales price of your home by $10,000 only leads to a $300 decrease in the agent's commission.

Felix, on the other hand, has skin in the game. We pay owners up to 2% just to list and we only make money if we sell above your gauranteed price.
How is Felix different from For Sale By Owner (FSBO)?
Felix does everything a traditional real estate agent will do and more. If you choose to sell your home yourself, you will have to navigate the home selling process and you may still have to pay a buyer's agent's commission. At Felix, we handle every step of the transaction including: listing, marketing, negotiating, and closing.
Which regions does Felix currently service?
Felix is currently serving clients on an invitation basis across the U.S. Please sign up to get your early invite.

Questions for Sellers

Who is your Felix Agent?
Felix assigns each seller a dedicated Felix Agent that they will meet with on a regular basis. A Felix Agent is a local real-estate expert and licensed agent who is there to answer all of your questions. And the best part? Your Felix Agent will be by your side until your sale is final.
How is Felix different from other real estate brokers?
Felix is the only real estate brokerage that will pay you to list your home. If we can’t find a buyer in 90-days, we’ll purchase your home ourselves. We also don’t believe the traditional commission model does a good job at fetching the highest price, so we decided to get rid of it. At Felix, we guarantee to sell your home at market value and only make money if we can sell it for more.
How can I earn more money by selling my house with Felix?
Unlike traditional agents who typically charge 6%, Felix does not charge a commission. Instead, we guarantee to sell your home at market value and only make money if we can sell it for more.

What if my home doesn’t sell in the 90-day listing period?
Unlike traditional agents that can walk away from a deal without recourse, if Felix can't find a buyer in 90 days, we’ll offer to purchase your home ourselves giving you the certainty of a sale.

What are the steps in the Felix home-selling process?
If you're ready to sell your home, we will set up a quick home evaluation. A few days later, we'll send you an offer, which will include our up-front payment and your guaranteed price. We will proceed to list your home on the local MLS and market directly to home buyers. We do everything that a traditional agent will do and more, like holding open houses, buyer showings, and listing your home on various platforms like Zillow and realtor.com.
How long does it typically take to sell?
It typically takes about 20-45 days to sell a home with Felix. The best part? You have our guarantee that if we cannot find a buyer within 90 days, we will offer to buy your home.
Will my home be listed on the MLS?
Absolutely. In addition to your home being listed on the local MLS, we will also market your home directly to motivated buyers.
What if my home doesn’t sell?
Most agents don’t like to bring this up, but of the 8 million homes listed for sale last year in the U.S., over 2.4 million went unsold. With a traditional agent, if your home goes unsold, they walk away with little recourse. Felix believes our Agents should have skin in the game. That’s why we’ll pay you just to list your home. And if Felix can't find a buyer within 90 days, we will offer to purchase your home ourselves, giving you the certainty of a sale from day one.
Will Felix help me with the closing process?
Absolutely! You will work with the same Felix Agent from the moment you list your house to the close of escrow.
Does Felix cover the buyer's agent's commission?
Yes! Felix will cover all buyer's agent's commission. The only extra costs you will have to ay for are typical closing costs associated with the sale of your home.
