Save When Selling Your Oahu Home

At Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties, we are all about savings.  It is our identity:  we are the guys who will save you money when it comes time to sell your home.  And, it’s not something we do grudgingly; we get just as excited by the money we save consumers as we do by the fees we earn.

We’ve learned over time that the more we can save home sellers while providing the best service in the industry, the more they will brag about us; and the more our business will grow.  That flies in the face of what ordinary real estate agents have done for decades, which is to rely on personality and pressure exerted on friends and family to build business.

Here is a typical Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties listing, sold and closed at the end of 2015:

RC2It is a great home in Hawaii Kai, with 4 bedrooms and a little more than 2,800 square feet and an indoor swimming pool! We listed it for $1,238,000 in late September, and had it sold and closed for full price in early December, just 75 days after the listing went active.  With a lot of effort, we were able to get it closed before the end of the year:  no small feat considering the latest round of transaction slowing legislation impacting the industry.

This was a brave home seller.  He could have succumbed to the pressure to list with a friend or neighbor working for an ordinary real estate company and charging, say, 6%.  If he had, he would have paid more than $74,000 in commission – assuming they were able to get a full price offer.

Instead, he did the smart thing:  he listed with Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties and agreed to pay our low set fee of $8,000.  As it turned out, the buyer was represented by an outside MLS agent and so the seller had to compensate that agent and company as well: an additional $30,950 (2.5%).  So this seller paid $38,950 in total commission to sell, as opposed to $74,280 had he chosen to list with an ordinary company: a savings of $35,330.

Do you suppose this seller was delighted to sell quickly for full price and save more than $35,000 in real estate commission?  You bet!  Do you think he will tell his friends, neighbors and co-workers how well his transaction went and how much he saved?  You bet!  And so, our business grows.

We promote our successful sales and the money our sellers save because that is what we want Oahu residents to know about us:  we will sell your home quickly, for a good price and save you thousands over what an ordinary broker would charge. When it comes time for you to sell, don’t succumb to the pressure to do it the way it’s always been done.  Be smart.  Choose Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties.
