How does Wahi work?

Wahi is a digital real estate platform that gives Canadians the control and confidence they need to make best real estate decisions.

With Wahi, you can find your dream home and the right Realtor for you. Browse property listings that unlock agent-level insights about each property and the local real estate market and you get connected with the right Realtor based on your circumstances.

How does Wahi’s cashback program work?

When you work with a Wahi MyBuy Realtor, they will provide remote service, which means you will get up to 1.0% of the sale price back in cash after close – that’s 1.0% of the total property price.

When a home is purchased, the commission is typically paid by the seller on both sides of the deal. The buyer’s brokerage receives their share of the commission from the listing brokerage after the transaction is completed. For example, if Wahi received 2.5% of the sale price in commission, Wahi would give 1.0% to the buyer in cashback.
