What Help-U-Sell IS and ISN’T

I answer questions about Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties every day.  People understand that we are different, but often they don’t know what the differences are.  I enjoy answering the questions because it gives me a chance to educate and tell our story.

While questions can be all over the place, I hear some more than others.  Here are the most often asked questions and my response to them:

Is Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ Company?

Absolutely not!  We are a full service real estate company.  We do everything every other good real estate company does (and, actually more).  We put our homes in the MLS and all over the Internet and market them heavily on the Island and the mainland as well.

Do I have to hold my own Open Houses and show my house myself?

No.  Full service means full service.  We hold open houses for our home sellers.  On Oahu it’s great marketing!  We also show your house when there is an interested party.  As I said above, there is nothing ‘Do-It-Yourself’ about Help-U-Sell.

I know you charge less, but are there hidden fees or up-front fees?

No.  We do charge less, but what’s more important is that we charge differently.  Other real estate companies will charge a percent of the home’s sale price as commission, so the seller with the more expensive home is going to pay MORE than the seller with the less expensive home.  Of course that makes not sense:  it costs no more to sell a properly priced $750,000 home than it does a $600,000 home. That’s why we charge a Set Fee to sell your home; everybody pretty much pays the same thing.  And no, there are never front fees and no hidden ‘surprise fees’ at closing.

If I list with you, will other real estate companies show my home?

Absolutely. We are members of the Honolulu Board of Realtors, the Hawaii Association and the National Association of Realtors. We belong to the Honolulu MLS and co-operate with all other member brokers in selling our listings.  In fact, since 2009, slightly more than 90% of our listings have been sold by outside MLS real estate brokers.

I know I’m going to save thousands of dollars with you, but what am I going to have to give up?

Nothing.  Really:  Full Service means Full Service.  We pull out all the stops to get your home sold quickly and for top dollar.
