Found a way to lower real estate commissions? Add to ...

The real estate market traditionally dominated by the Canadian Real Estate Association and its Multiple Listing Service is opening up. New entrants are creating competition, offering alternatives to traditional agency commissions, such as fee-based listings and salaried agents.

The Globe and Mail is interested in speaking with readers who have bought or sold a house on their own, or tried alternatives to commission-based real estate agents. We'd like to hear your experiences, good and bad, with startups and web-based companies that offer real estate services.

Alternatively, if you have done most of the legwork yourself, then used a real estate agent to close the deal, or if you’ve negotiated a lower commission with your agent, we'd like to hear your story as well.

Fill out the confidential form below and a Globe and Mail journalist may contact you for further information that can be used in our upcoming coverage of the spring housing market.
