You Asked About: Help U Sell

David asks…

Has anybody used Help u Sell to sell your home? What was your experience?

We are trying to decide between using a traditional realtor or using Help U Sell. We live in Boise, ID. We are just wanting to hear some experiences, good and bad of people who have used Help U Sell. How long did it take to sell? Did you get your asking price? What did you have to do to sell your home that was different than if you used a traditional realtor? Do you feel like you had a lot of showings?

THANKS!!

Chas answers:

We have done successfully done four (4) separate For Sale By Owner (FSBO) real estate transactions, and naturally have experience as both SELLER and BUYER and we have used www.FSBO.com before

A lot has to do with important factors as LOCATION in terms of school district and sought after neighborhood, condition & age of your home, TIMING and LUCK <= esp in today's market etc.

It took a little longer than normal and we had to do practically all the legwork, flyers/brochures but it does help that I have a BS Finance degree and conduct & prepare major dollar acquistion contracts plus work with attorneys for a living…

Based on your Boise ID location <= we lived in Tacoma Wash when I was on Active Duty in 9th Infantry Division, Fort Lewis Washington and had an uncle stationed in Bosie ID while in Air Force, a lot has to do with jobs in the Boise ID area and you should also remember that thousands of homes are on sale where if you don't have a lot of extra savings, just paying the real estate commission and getting the responsibilty of someone else paying your mortgage once you do move should be enough incentive to passing property to a full service real estate company in today's dismal market.

For example now the real estate market is so bad that it's almost if the scenario were say you owned a resturant and was not getting enough customers so one by one you were letting employees go or getting back on hours, and by advertising & offering something extra to the general public to eat in your restaurant like free desert, free appetizer (like extra cash or bonus incentive to the real estate agent marketing your property) it definitely might be worthwhile & smart move in terms of less headaches bec he/she put selling your home before other homes and it sold, who cares about differential bec it could be really bad.

What I am saying is in early 1990's I actually was surprised to see someone advertising that they would pay BUYER $$ money to assume their mortgage. This wasn't an automobile rather it was a single family home and the message was if Seller turned home to agent after subtracting commission he would be losing money bec they did not own long enough to have any equity…so therefore paying a qualified buyer to assume their mortgage and pass title & monthly mortgage pymts was much better or less of a loss…hope I did not confuse you?

Hope the Above Info Helps & Best of Luck!
