Lucid’s smarter approach to commissions.

Why pay the higher commissions of a traditional brokerage? At Lucid Realty sellers pay a discounted listing commission. Because we operate efficiently and our agents do not have to spend time searching for new clients, we can take lower a commission. Best of all, you can always count on the best-in-class customer service and support for which Lucid is known.

When helping you sell your home, instead of charging 6%, we base our commission on a sliding scale and can charge you as little as 3.7% because the commission percentage we charge decreases for more expensive homes. With Lucid you never pay high commissions but you always get superior service.

Luxury Home Sales

High-end homeowners get high-end service with lowered commissions.

Lucid Realty’s discounted commission rates pay off big for luxury home sellers.

While these homes require specialized expertise to sell, the traditional commission structures tend to be disproportional to the effort required. In many ways, these homes are easier to sell which is why we use a sliding scale where the commission percentage decreases as a home’s value increases.

But while high-end homeowners pay comparatively less in commissions, they enjoy the premium level of service for which Lucid is known. Services like high-definition dynamic range photos, customized webpages for your property, and professionally run showings that cater to the time-sensitive schedules of high-end buyers. And of course, you have Lucid’s industry leading agents providing high-end market insights, expertise and advice along with a concierge-level of service. Luxury home sellers appreciate the responsiveness of our agents.
