Luxury Home Sellers Save Thousands in Commissions with Help-U-Sell® Real Estate

Sarasota, Fla. – In these days of lower equity margins, preserving as much of that as possible is a top priority for home sellers, especially those with the most to lose.

Set-fee real estate franchisor Help-U-Sell® Real Estate is in the business of saving home sellers money, and those with luxury properties can benefit the most. Help-U-Sell® Westside Realty, based in Los Angeles, has recently helped clients sell pricey properties, including a $10.5 million apartment complex, saving the seller a few hundred thousand dollars.

Westside Realty’s broker/owner Henry Ho has also sold multimillion dollar private homes this year. He says conducting these transactions is usually easier than selling lower-priced properties because the luxury houses are often bought with all cash, so there are no financing issues.

Help-U-Sell Grein Group in Stafford, Va., serves high-end real estate clientele in her local market. Bettina Grein says sellers have saved as much as $25,000 in commissions by listing with her office over a traditional brokerage. Help-U-Sell® offices’ low set fee typically covers everything a percentage-based commission brokerage does.

“Our business model is perfect for all kinds of sellers, especially those with luxury property,” says Ron McCoy, vice president of business development. “Luxury homeowners are extremely savvy and quickly recognize the savings compared to what many old-fashioned real estate brokers have to offer. Our set-fee alternative to the commission structure just makes more sense.”

Help-U-Sell Real Estate forged a revolution in the real estate industry by proactively challenging the commission structure, and has continued to perfect its full-service set-fee model today.
