ComFree: Commission-free real estate network banner is officially launched

One third of Canadians would not automatically use a real estate agent to sell their property

TORONTO, Feb. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - According to a survey of some 5,000 Canadians1, 32 per cent of homeowners would not automatically turn to a real estate agent to sell their property. With the launch of ComFree, Canada's largest commission-free network, Canadian homeowners now have an alternative to sell their homes and avoid paying real estate commissions.

"We can certainly confirm that the real estate sector is undergoing a significant transformation," Pat Sullivan, Vice President of ComFree. "The survey shows that selling a home without an intermediary is a consumer preference. That's exactly what we are seeing at ComFree. Our company meets the client's needs by providing what we call assisted sales services to sell their home," Sullivan said.

ComFree offers a turn-key marketing service to help homeowners sell their home intermediary-free as well as professional advice, legal and appraisal assistance. ComFree.com lists more than 12,000 properties for sale, and the website receives more than 2.5 million visits monthly.

"We offer everything homeowners need to sell their home commission-free and save thousands of dollars. This unique positioning is immediately apparent in ComFree's new slogan 'Committed Without Commission,'" Sullivan said.

The network is now operating as ComFree in Canada outside Quebec and as DuProprio in Quebec.
