How Are We Different
With the advancement in technology, home sellers now have more than one option to sell their homes. The traditional 6% commission model is now outdated and hard to justify in these modern times. Most buyers are now finding their next home themselves through online search thus saving Realtors considerable effort to market their listing. However this less effort has not been matched by lower commissions. In fact, the actual commission amount continues to go up with rising home prices. This has given rise to several alternative forms to sell their homes.
Sellers now sell their homes in one of the following ways:
- Traditional Real Estate Brokerages - charging 5 or 6% of the sale price
- Discount Brokers – Providing limited service with discounted commission rates
- Online Real Estate Companies – Selling homes remotely via online with no Realtor contact
- For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
A better alternative all these is the Help-U-Sell model which provides Full-Service, charges a Low Set Fee and makes extensive use of technology to market your home across all the real estate popular websites. With over 40 years in existence, Help-U-Sell is a proven model and a pioneer in saving homeowners money in real estate commissions.
How is Help-U-Sell different from the "Traditional" Brokerages?
The most obvious distinction between Help-U-Sell and the traditional agents is the commission structure. Traditional Realtors generally charge home sellers a percentage of the sale value. This usually varies between 5-6 percent. Help-U-Sell offices charge a Set Fee instead of heavy commissions. This varies with the local offices and could be as low as $5950.
How is Help-U-Sell different from "Discount" Brokerages?
Help-U-Sell is not a discount real estate company. It is a full-service brokerage that charges a set fee. Unlike discount brokers, it does not compromise on its services. It provides all the services you would expect from a knowledgeable, licensed Realtor but at a substantially less cost thereby saving you equity in your house.
How is Help-U-Sell different from "For Sale by Owner"?
Many homeowners plan to sell their home without the help of a Realtor or a real estate broker (FSBOs). We fully understand their reason for undertaking this journey. They detest the idea of paying high commissions and share their hard-earned equity with real estate professionals. Our model is a perfect fit for such homeowners. They not only save thousands in real estate commissions but also keep control over the selling process.
For those FSBOs who still would like to sell their home themselves, Help-U-Sell offers a popular “Paperwork Only” program to assist them with the sales contract, disclosures and other closing paperwork at a very low fixed fee.
