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: 3% to the Selling Agent + 3% to the Buying Agent for a 6% total commission fee). Assist-2-Sell offices charge ONE low, flat fee. (Example: As low as $2,995!) They believe that Friends Don't Let Friends Pay 6%™.
With Assist-2-Sell, you will receive a full suite of real estate services and marketing strategies for one flat fee. Other companies that discount their commission usually do so by taking away services and NOT providing full support and services to their clients. If they charge less, they are going to do less. Assist-2-Sell is NOT like that. We are a full service discount real estate company.
Some "Limited Service/Discounted Commission" 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 do 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 don’t want to pay a high commission.
Many homeowners decide to sell their home without the assistance of a real estate broker. Most "For Sale by Owner" (FSBO). There are real estate companies that simply help these homeowners advertise their house on the Internet. Assist-2-Sell is not a "For Sale by Owner" solution; it is a full-service real estate brokerage offering everything for one flat fee to sell your home. If you have your home on the market "For Sale by Owner" and have found your own buyer, our office does have an option to help you, the seller, through the paperwork processes.
Assist-2-Sell understands why many people decide to sell their home by themselves, and it is ready to assist with its "Paperwork Only" program. Assist-2-Sell can help with the sales contract and the closing for one low flat fee. This service is our Seller Assist™ program and our office will handle the paperwork only for your FSBO sales for $1,995. Please talk with our agents for more information.
