Proprio Direct is a brokerage company, with real estate brokers and commission. That means that everything in the right-hand column in the table above applies to their services. Here are other key differences between DuProprio and Proprio Direct:
With Proprio Direct, an owner that finds his buyer himself still needs to pay a 2% commission to the broker. This percentage can rise to 7% when the agent finds the buyer. But in practice, did you know that only 10% of transactions closed through Proprio Direct had a commission of 2%?* It’s not surprising, given that the agent’s contact information is what appears on the online listing and the “For Sale” sign…
Of the 2 companies, only DuProprio delivers true savings, in addition to offering you the best exposure and the professional support you need to sell your house!

Journalists from the Radio-Canada show La Facture looked at the issue in the report Qui du public ou des courtiers est le mieux protégé? (available in French only). Their findings raise concerns.
