Increased awareness of "non-traditional" business models, like that of Assist-2-Sell, North America's Leading Discount Real Estate Company™, has spawned a national debate about the differences between "traditional" real estate companies and "discount" real estate companies. People involved in the discussion try to characterize real estate companies as being either "traditional" or "discount." It would be more accurate to differentiate using three categories:
- Full-Service/High Commission – So-called "traditional" real estate companies
- Full-Service/Discounted Commission – Assist-2-Sell
- Limited Service/Discounted Commission – Real estate companies that offer a "menu of services" or limited service (for instance, placing a listing in MLS but providing no other real estate services) . Fees are charged for the services that are selected, usually, but not always, at a discounted commission.
As a "discounter," Assist-2-Sell is often inaccurately lumped in with the third category, "Limited Service/Discounted Commission." A key difference between Assist-2-Sell and others in the "discount" real estate space is the level of service. Assist-2-Sell discovered early on that while sellers love the discounted commission, they still need and want full-service. Assist-2-Sell Buyers & Sellers Realty is a full service real estate brokerage staffed by experienced, licensed real estate professionals who are members of the National Association of REALTORS®, as well as state and local REALTOR associations. We take care of everything home sellers need from a real estate company, but charge a lower commission. It's called Full Service with $avings!®, "Full Service for Less!"®, and Results with Savings!®.
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 & Sellers Realty charges a low, flat fee commission. (Example: As low as $2,995!) We believe that Friends Don't Let Friends Pay 6%™.
With Assist-2-Sell Buyers & Sellers Realty, home sellers are also given a choice as to how their home is marketed.
This program adds the benefits of the MLS, while still offering home sellers the opportunity to pay only the low, flat fee should the home buyer purchase directly through Assist-2-Sell. 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 our low, flat fee. If the buyer comes directly to Assist-2-Sell, the seller pays only the low, flat fee, and not the additional three percent.
Both programs are designed to offer home sellers choices and to save them money. Regardless of which program a seller chooses, they still enjoy full-service.
Assist-2-Sell is a full service discount real estate company. Other companies that discount their commission usually do so by taking away services. If they charge less, they are going to do less.
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) real estate companies 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.
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 an even lower, flat fee. this is our Seller Assist™ program.
Assist-2-Sell offices are FULL SERVICE brokerages that take care of EVERYTHING home sellers need from a real estate company.
In fact... about the only difference you'll find between Assist-2-Sell services and other brokerages... is that according to national research:
Assist-2-Sell agents sell more homes than the average agent.
And what really sets Assist-2-Sell apart…is the money you can save in commissions.
In today's complicated housing market... Assist-2-Sell keeps things simple... simple, but effective and with exceptional value.
