OurService and Fees Make The Difference
HOW IS ASSIST-2-SELL DIFFERENT FROM "TRADITIONAL" REAL ESTATE COMPANIES?
The most obvious difference between Assist-2-Sell and "traditional" real estate companies lies in the commission structure. Traditional firms typically charge home sellers a high commission that is a percentage of the sale price (Example: Six percent). Assist-2-Sell Buyers and Sellers Advantage charges a low, flat fee of $2,995 (for homes that sell for under 400K) plus an additional MLS fee. For homes that sell for 400k or higher, the Assist 2 Sell fee is 1% of the sale price plus an MLS fee.
THE MLS FOR LESS PROGRAM
This program includes the benefit of the MLS, while still offering home sellers the opportunity to pay only our low, flat fee of $2,995 (or 1% of the sale price for homes 400K or higher) should the home buyer purchase directly through our office. Under this program, a low commission is typically added to the cost. (Example: Three percent). If an MLS agent brings the home buyer, they receive the three percent - Assist-2-Sell receives only their low, flat fee of $2,995 (or 1%). If the buyer comes directly to our office, the seller pays only $2,995 (or 1%) and not the additional three percent.
HOW IS ASSIST-2-SELL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER "DISCOUNT" REAL ESTATE COMPANIES?
Assist-2-Sell is a FULL SERVICE discount real estate company. Other companies that discount their commission often do so by taking away services. If they charge less, they are going to do less.
Some "Limited Service/Discounted Commission" real estate companies charge upfront fees. Others are internet based and may only offer placement of the house in the MLS and rely on the MLS-selling broker to handle the entire transaction. While these models may have some appeal, Assist-2-Sell has found they are not a solution for the majority of home sellers who want and need full service but do not want to pay a high commission.
Assist-2-Sell discovered early on that while sellers love the discounted commission, they still want and need full-service. Assist-2-Sell franchises are full service real estate brokerages staffed by experienced, licensed real estate professionals who are members of the National Association of REALTORS, as well as state and local REALTOR associations. They take care of everything home sellers need from a real estate company, but charge a lower commission.
