Saving Thousands: Calculating Your Potential Savings with FSBO Through

Selling your home is a significant financial transaction, and for many homeowners, the thought of paying hefty commission fees to a real estate agent can be daunting. Fortunately, there’s a better way: For Sale By Owner (FSBO). With, homeowners across Canada are saving thousands on commission fees while achieving successful home sales. In this post, we’ll delve into how you can calculate your potential savings with FSBO, using a standard 5% commission rate and including the 13% HST rate in the calculation.

Understanding Commission Fees

In a traditional real estate transaction, sellers typically pay a commission fee to their real estate agent, usually around 5% of the final sale price. This commission covers the agent’s services, including marketing, negotiations, and paperwork. On top of the commission, sellers are also responsible for paying HST on the commission amount, currently set at 13% in Canada.

Calculating Potential Savings with FSBO

Let’s break down the potential savings using a hypothetical example:

  1. Home Sale Price: $500,000
  2. Standard Commission Rate: 5%
  3. Commission Fee: $500,000 x 5% = $25,000
  4. HST on Commission: $25,000 x 13% = $3,250
  5. Total Commission Payment: $25,000 + $3,250 = $28,250

By selling your home FSBO through, you can avoid paying this hefty commission fee and keep more money in your pocket.

Potential Savings with FSBO

  1. Commission Savings: $25,000
  2. HST Savings: $3,250
