As Tucson home values continue to rise, an online real estate brokerage firm is expanding into Pima County to help cut the costs for selling or buying a new home without commission fees. 

Since 2011, Trelora has helped homeowners keep more money in their pocket by offering a flat-fee model where sellers pay up to $4,000 maximum for realty assistance in putting their home on the market instead or a commission based on a percentage of the sale. Buyers can receive up to $6,000 in a commission sharing program the company has to help with closing fees for remodeling. 

“Tucson continues to be a hot real estate market with the average home values increasing by 16.20% over the last year and 52.53% over the past five years. As a result, consumers are left paying high commissions to their agents,” Trelora’s Arizona market director Brock Embree said. “We’re excited to offer a better alternative and save people thousands of dollars so that all they have to think about is enjoying their new home.”

In 2020, Tucsonans paid close to an estimated $300 million in real estate commission costs. Using Trelora, sellers and buyers in Tucson could save $162 million through Trelora’s fair-fee model, according to Trelora’s research.

Trelora’s agents average about 150 deals closed per year and specialize in the local markets they service, said Embree. In addition to Tucson, the company currently serves seven national housing markets and is expanding throughout the Southeastern United States as well as Denver, Colorado. To date, the company has saved more than $65 million in commission fees for their clients nationwide, according to the Trelora website.
