When it’s time to sell your home, there are many things you need to do to get it and yourself ready. These include what to provide to make showing and selling easier (a lock box, signs), how to change your mindset (your home is now a product), what to discuss with your agent (how will offers be presented?, what does the paperwork look like?), and how to choose an agent (what are his listings’ average days on market?, review testimonials) .
Watch our new video to find out how you and your house can be at their best when it’s time to sell.
If you have any questions or are ready to list your house, find a Help-U-Sell Real Estate agent on our website.
At Help-U-Sell Real Estate, we want to help our sellers save the most money. A seller can do this by being an active participant in the sale of his home. It’s easier than you might think. Finding the buyer often simply means telling family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers that your home is on the market. Showing your home can be done on your schedule, and your agent will give you training and guidance. Once you’ve found potential buyers, you turn them over to your agent to handle the heavy lifting: from negotiations to paperwork to closing.
Watch our new video for more details and learn how you can keep more of your equity.
It’s a new year and time for new EDDM (every door direct mail) postcards. Excel Printing & Mailing has set up a co-op for Help-U-Sell Real Estate franchisees to enable a lower cost per piece. The postcards, with postage and shipping, are only $0.28 each.
The co-op runs from Mon., Jan. 6, through Mon., Jan. 20. There are two new postcards directed toward sellers, and you can customize the message and the contact information, as well as the Sold & Saved and Testimonials.
Once you’ve logged into Excel’s site, you will click on Office Co-Op to see the designs, customize them and place your order.
Be sure to order enough postcards for the next three months. The next co-op for EDDMs will start on Apr. 7, 2014.
We’re always seeking out new ways to improve our technology and our brokers’ efficiency. To that end, we’ve created My Help-U-Sell for Sellers.
Sellers will be able to see how many times their listing has been viewed, download and share documents with you and post notes all in one easy-to-access location. They can also access their listings’ QR codes, print flyers and look at their open houses. Eventually, sellers will be able to add their own open houses that they will conduct, after their brokers or agents have opted in to give permission.
The new My Help-U-Sell for Sellers functionality will make your office more efficient, and it’s a great selling tool for getting new listings.
Sellers will receive their credentials to log in from you. To send a seller his credentials, log into your OMS. Once your seller lead has been converted to a seller, the seller will now be listed under My Office Contacts. Select the seller’s name from the list of contacts. You will see a widget called Seller Login. Click on the Create Login button to create a password for the seller. The password will be emailed to the seller, along with instructions on how to access and use My Help-U-Sell for Sellers.
You can upload documents and add notes to the seller in your OMS. Simply click on the seller’s listing, and you will see tabs labeled Documents and Notes. Here, you will be able to add your own documents and notes, as well as access those from the seller.
We are working on updating the graphics for My Help-U-Sell for Buyers, and those should be complete in the next few weeks.
