Our goal is to bring as many motivated buyers to your door. We do this by listing your home on all the appropriate multiple listing services for your area. We then syndicate your listing to thousands of local and national listing sites including Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com. We will create a custom and dedicated website for your listing and promote it on our social media. Finally, we send your listing to our large database of potential buyers.

We provide two ways to get a home valuation. You can get an instant valuation or a more detailed agent valuation. To get your home valuations please go to the link below.

Once your property is ready for showings we will send you a bluetooth lock box and get you set up with our home showing app. With this, buyer agents will call and be vetted by us and then sent to your for approval. If you approve the showing then the agent will schedule via the showing application.
No, you do not need to be at your home for the showing. We provide a bluetooth lock box to all our sellers that only verified and vetted agents will be able to access.
While we love to meet all our sellers in person you do not need to come to our office. Everything we do can be done safely and remotely.
While we suggest using one of our bluetooth lock boxes you do not need the lock box. If you prefer to be at your property to let the buyer and buyer agent in then you can do that.
You can send us your own photos, but professional photography is included with all of our listings. We highly recommend using our photographers as they have experts in photographing homes for sale.
Yes, your property will be listed on all of the industry sites and well as follow the professional guidelines. However, we expect your listing to look better than other listings!
Yes, you will be able to make changes to your listing throughout the entire process. As part of your listing team you will have a dedicated agent, a listing coordinator and a compliance manager who will all be available to make any changes as needed.
Your licensed agent will be the main point of contact once your home is listed. You will also be in close contact with your compliance manager the further into the selling and escrow process you are.
Yes, you do have to offer a buyer agent commission in order to be listed on the multiple listing services. We require the you offer a minimum of 1%, but your licensed agent will review best practices after finishing your listing application.
Unfortunately, there is a correlation between buyer agent commissions and showing. However, this does not mean that buyer agents won’t show your property.
Absolutely not, we only get paid after a successful close on the sale.

Yes! You can cancel your agreement with us anytime with no questions asked. However, if you cancel before 90 days we do require that you pay for any of the hard costs we incur such as: lockbox, showing app, photography, yard sign and removal, virtual tour. Below is the full cancellation policy.

CANCELLATION OF LISTING. Seller may cancel this listing at any time with the understanding that Everhome will incur specific expenses, on Seller’s behalf, to list and sell subject property. Everhome incurs those expenses, in good faith and with the expectation that they will have Seller’s full cooperation and ample time to sell the home and recover the incurred expenses, plus a fair profit. Seller also acknowledges that factors that greatly impact Everhome’s ability to sell the home such as: list price, Buyer Broker commission, showing access and other factors are decided by the seller alone. Failure to sell the property will primarily be the result of a factor that is controlled by the Seller and not Everhome. Everhome will make recommendations for success, but the decision to implement is that of the Seller only. Should seller cancel the listing within 90 days of being active in the MLS, Seller agrees to reimburse Everhome for the hard costs incurred on seller’s behalf as follows:
i. Showing coordination – $1 per day in MLS ii. Bluetooth Lockbox – $40, iii. Everhome Yard Sign and Removal – $150, and iv. Professional Photography and Virtual Tour – $400. There are no fees for services not provided and the maximum is $680. There are no fees for cancellation after 90 days of being active in the MLS.

Yes, we provide professional yard signs. If you are in a HOA that does not allow yard signs then we can send you corrugated signs based on the HOA requirements.
We currently provide full service listings in the Ventura and Los Angeles areas only.
No, Everhome does not pay for escrow and title, however we do handle all coordination and communication.
Absolutely! We have two different buyer options. First, you can apply for our Smart Buyer + program where you get a 25% rebate on any buyer agent commissions. Second, you can do all the research and coordination and we will represent you for the transaction for a fee of $2950 and you can keep the rest of the buyer agent commission!
We highly recommend finding your own buyer. If you do find a buyer then we can provide a separate agent and represent them for a low fee of $2950. This is typically still paid by the seller, however that can be negotiated and that will be all the buyer commission you will have to pay!
