Help-U-Sell Brokers and agents are fully licensed professionals, members of their local Board of Realtors and of the Canadian Real Estate Association®, work with both Buyers and Sellers, and provide a full range of real estate services. Help-U-Sell® Real Estate differs from traditional brokers, not in the scope of services provided, but in the dollar amount that you pay for those services. Our brokers charge a set fee for their services, as opposed to the traditional 6 percent commission, which, in turn, helps you to retain a greater amount of equity while still receiving all the real estate services you expect. Streamlined business practices and a focus on marketing properties rather than marketing themselves allows our brokers to spend their time working with buyers and sellers, as opposed to traditional real estate brokers who spend a majority of their time managing offices and recruiting new agents.
We believe that the traditional 6 percent commission is an outdated practice and has no correlation to the cost of performing a real estate transaction. Our goal is to provide a fair price for the cost of services rendered, much like any other professional service that consumers would pay for. Since the cost of doing business varies throughout the country, the set-fee offered for our services also varies, depending on the market. What doesn't change is the scope of services we provide. We perform all the same services as traditional real estate companies, and, often times, more. Please contact your local office to find out more about the set fee in your market.
Yes. Help-U-Sell Real Estate is a full-service real estate organization representing both buyers and sellers. We can help a buyer purchase any home for sale in the market, not just Help-U-Sell® Real Estate listings. We take the time to learn what our buyers are looking for and represent their best interests throughout the home purchase process. Search thousands of listings nationwide.
It's simple. We are consumer-centric. Sellers appreciate the fact that our Brokers spend their time marketing properties instead of marketing themselves and recruiting agents. Our Buyers appreciate the fact that we are experts in their neighborhood and that our website contains all of the local MLS listings, and, in many cases, more. Our unique marketing strategies drive an unprecedented amount of traffic to our website and offices, which results in many buyers for our listings and many new listings. Additionally, our streamlined operations and cost efficiencies translate into low overhead and savings that we pass along to consumers with our low set fee.
Yes. All Help-U-Sell Brokers and Agents are licensed, members of their local MLS boards and members of the National Association of Realtors®.
Since all Help-U-Sell® Offices are independently owned and operated, and all have vastly different market conditions, the choices available to our clients may differ. However, for those clients who choose to be an active participant in the transaction many our brokers provide you with the opportunity to save even more money by showing your home yourself and conducting your own open houses. Or, you may also have the option of placing your home on the MLS. Again, these choices are optional and vary by office.
Years of experience have allowed us to refine the home selling and home buying process. Rather than mega offices, our franchises are streamlined operations with low overhead and a small team of specialized experts. Instead of recruiting and managing agents, we focus on promoting our clients' listings and Help-U-Sell's unique business model. Not only does this result in cost economies but it also allows us to charge a fee directly related to the services provided. We pride ourselves on being extremely consumer-centric and believe that the traditional real estate commission model, with no correlation between the services rendered and the cost of those services, is outdated and unnecessary.
Almost all of our brokers are seasoned agents, and many are also top producers in their local area. Statistics show that our listings consistently beat the national average in terms of number of days on market and list to sales price. In addition, our brokers and agents consistently conduct more transactions per year than the average real estate agent.
Help-U-Sell Real Estate, with its innovative business model has been at the forefront of the revolution in real estate. But as in any industry, and particularly one as entrenched in one way of doing business as real estate, change is slow. Although a number of Internet real estate companies and commission discounters make promises about changing the way real estate is practiced, only Help-U-Sell offers a unique bridge between traditional real estate companies and for sale by owners allowing buyers to work directly with home owners and a fee that correlates to service, and a proven track record.
No. Help-U-Sell Real Estate identifies all fees up front. The price you pay is based on a fee for professional services rendered - not on a percentage of the sales price of your home.
Multiple Listing Service (MLS®) is the most comprehensive computerized database of homes for sale with over millions of listings nationwide. This database is used by Realtors® to market and promote their own listings and to cooperate with other Realtors®. Realtors®, in turn, are compensated with part of the commission. A large portion of real estate transactions are a result of direct MLS exposure. By having your home in MLS, it will be exposed to thousands of local real estate agents who otherwise would not have known that your property was for sale and would not have shown it. This is the same MLS used by traditional brokers who charge a 6 percent commission.
No. Buyer brokers search many sources for their clients, and they understand the advantages of Help-U-Sell Real Estate. Our listings have been sold by every major real estate company and we have a long history of excellent relationships with our colleagues in the industry.
