Help-U-Sell Real Estate Helps Buyers, Too

Help-U-Sell Real Estate agents help buyers, too.
Help-U-Sell Real Estate agents help buyers, too.

Our name says that our agents help consumers sell their homes, but we also help buyers. In fact, just last month, our top producers closed 50 buyer transactions. Buyers are an important component of our business model, and we love working with them.

Many of our offices have dedicated buyers’ agents to handle the buyer leads our listings attract. Some offices offer rebates as another incentive for buyers.

To help buyers as well as possible, agents need to be trained in all aspects of the buying process. Our second 10-week buyer consultant training course for our brokers and agents just wrapped up this week. Run by Jack Bailey, broker/owner of Help-U-Sell Greensboro, the course covered everything from construction basics to financing programs to how to build buyers’ confidence and trust. Some attendees from the first course have already reported more buyer sides closed, and the teachings about lesser-known financing options like over-par pricing can save transactions.

For an overview of how we approach the buyer relationship, watch our video. You’ll see how our brokers and agents help buyers create a real estate plan for their financial future and find the best home for them in responsive and transparent manner.

Our website also helps buyers start their home searches. From the corporate site, users are directed to a local office’s search results page, where they can filter their searches by a variety of amenities and factors, such as waterfront and local schools. The search functionality also allows users to draw their own boundaries to find listings within the area’s confines. Further enhancements to the data are in the works and will make our search even more attractive for buyers.
