Thanks. Did you find any agent in particular better than average?
Marty Bell was good and attentive initially when showing us a few homes. Once we decided on a home, he highly recommended Bank of America for the home loan unbeknownst to us that his wife handles mortgage loans there. Clearly, this was a huge conflict of interest and he ought to be ashamed of himself. Also, we contacted him several times after we closed as we noticed some discrepancies but he never returned our calls. We did receive a very generic 'Thank You' card in the mail but I would have much preferred a call back, that's the professional thing to do.

Anyone use them at their discounted $2995 flat rate to sell their home? What do you get? What are the drawbacks?
Assist 2 Sell has sold two of my homes. Each house was on the market less than a week. They get the listing on the UticaRomeRealtor website which is what most people I know use. In my experience they have been very attentive and professional.

Now, here is my tip if you are a buyer and want a house. If you are interested in a house listed by Assist2Sell, do not have an outside realtor show you the property. Go with the listing agent. Because Assist2Sell doesn't rape their clients with high commission fees (ie, 6%, 7%), the seller pays less commission if you go with the listing agent. If there are competing offers and one is with an outside agent, one with the listing agent at nearly the same offer amount, the sellers are going to go with the offer through the listing agent. This is something non Assist2Sell realtors will not tell you when they try to get you to be loyal to them.

We had bidding wars on both houses we sold and some butt hurt individuals who couldn't understand why we turned our noses up at their offers. Both times the offers through our listing agent won out because we didn't feel like paying $2000 -$3000 more in commission, which washed out the fact that their offers were less than $2000 higher than the other person's.

One thing to keep in mind however is that your property will sell itself if it's kept up. Keep it neat and clean. Keep it updated. I can't believe how many properties I have looked at throughout the years that are just completely filthy, cluttered and/or disgusting. If you have clutter everywhere and do not have your home clean and presentable it is going to sit on the market. Pets are another thing. Clean up after them before people look at your house. Make sure your home doesn't smell like cat urine or wet dog. No one will be able to see your home if people don't even want to walk through it much less live in it.

Nope. Wrong. I am a REAL seller who used Assist2Sell. Funny how no one ever believes that a happy client can post positive things about a company and that it's always someone with their own motives (not that this doesn't happen but that is not the case here).

But again, if you don't keep your house up to par no one will be able to sell your house. It amazes me how many people out there are trying to blame real estate companies because their over-priced, under-kept house just sits on the market.

Which agent did you use? I'm going to try it on my own 1st. I may work with Assist 2 Sell if it doesn't work out.

Haha! Ignorant comment from someone who knows nothing about the situation. Actually that's not the case at all but it had nothing to do with the realtors. It was how we kept our homes. They were overpriced and went for more than they should have.

untrue, zillow isn't even close to real value. John brown will give a free appraisel. He sells more pocket listings than all realtors sell advertised ones!

Zillow and Trulia are basically rough guidelines to give you an idea of what a property is worth. They use a computer formula to come up with these prices, based on a mixture of what similar properties have sold for in that area, appreciation/depreciation, square footage, etc. There are lots of descrepencies. I have seen prices for identicle houses across the street or next door to each other with vastly different prices. These websites are just estimates. They do not take into account the condition of the house or any updates.

Yes, true, BUT if you know anything about real estate, a realtor goes by COMPS in the area, what nearby houses sold for that are similar. Many houses sell CLOSE to Zillow's estimates. Of course its not EXACT!
