Help-U-Sell® Real Estate Increases Sales by More Than 21 Percent in 2013

Sarasota, Fla. – Help-U-Sell® Real Estate’s franchise offices closed 21.3 percent more buyer and seller transactions in 2013 than in 2012. The national real estate market saw a year-over-year increase of 9.1 percent, according to the National Association of Realtors

Ron McCoy, Help-U-Sell Real Estate’s vice president of business development, attributes the increased transactions to the company’s set-fee business model and homeowners’ desire to keep as much equity as they can when selling their properties. 

“Every day, sellers are crossing the threshold of home equity again. Having a low set-fee service offering that enables sellers to maximize the equity they keep, coupled with some of the very best brokers and agents in the country, is undoubtedly a recipe for success,” he said. “We're very proud of the accomplishments of our network and are ready for another stellar year.”

The company’s offices saved sellers more than $16.9 million last year compared to a 6 percent commission rate, as Help-U-Sell Real Estate franchises charge set fees rather than traditional commissions.
