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 offices charge a low, flat fee commission. (Example: As low as $2,995!) They believe that Friends Don't Let Friends Pay 6%™. With Assist-2-Sell, home sellers are also given a choice as to how their home is marketed. The Direct-to-Buyer™ Program: As the name implies, the Direct-to-Buyer program markets a home seller’s home directly to home buyers. This differs from "traditional" marketing programs that rely primarily on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to market homes. While the MLS is a powerful marketing tool, it is expensive and not always necessary. Many home sellers prefer the Direct-to-Buyers program because it gives Assist-2-Sell the opportunity to find a buyer through its own marketing efforts. The MLS for Less™ Program: 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 only their 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. NOTE: Programs and fees vary by office, and specific fee structures should be confirmed by local Assist-2-Sell offices. 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.
