Houwzer, '0% listing commission' real estate brokerage, raises $2M

In exchange for $495 listing fee, Houwzer asks for 'social currency' and opportunity to work with sellers as buyer's broker

Come-ons from hybrid brokerages often seem too good to be true, but Houwzer’s may take the cake. “Pay 0% commission for listing and selling your home with Houwzer,” the Philadelphia-based brokerage proclaims boldly on its website. “Just pay the buyer’s agent and you’re good. Sound Revolutionary? Well, it is.”
