Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How much can I save on my home sale?

You can save yourself the entire 6% typical real estate agent commission if you find a direct buyer through our service. If you decide to sell to a buyer who is represented by an agent, you will only owe the buyer’s broker the commission you chose to offer in the MLS.

You do not owe Hauseit® any commission upon closing. This means you will either owe 0% in commission if the buyer is unrepresented, or just the buyer’s broker’s commission if the buyer is represented. For example, if you offer 2.5% to buyers’ agents in the MLS, you will never owe more than 2.5% in commission at closing.

Where is Hauseit® located?

Hauseit® has on-the-ground personnel in NYC, Long Island, the Hudson Valley and South Florida. Our business is headquartered today in Miami, Florida.

Hauseit® was founded in NYC and knows the New York real estate market inside and out. Since our founding in late 2014, we’ve listed over $1 billion worth of properties in the New York City market alone. We are proud to be the largest reduced broker commission platform in NYC by listings, deal experience and number of agents. Over the ensuing years, we expanded into Long Island, the Hudson Valley and South Florida.

What areas of New York do you cover?

Hauseit® Agent Assisted FSBO is available in NYC, Long Island and the Hudson Valley.

In NYC, we cover all neighborhoods within Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. NYC properties are listed on both the REBNY RLS and the OneKey MLS.

In the Hudson Valley, we cover Westchester, Bronx, Orange, Putnam, Dutchess, Ulster, Rockland and Sullivan counties. Properties in the Hudson Valley and Long Island are listed on the OneKey MLS.

On Long Island, we cover Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties. Properties on Long Island are listed on the OneKey MLS.

We’ve helped home sellers in the greater New York metro area save millions of dollars in commissions since we opened our doors and pioneered the Agent Assisted FSBO model in 2014. View our closed transactions here.

Please note that our professional photographers are only able to travel within NYC. Therefore, our Core and Professional Assisted FSBO Plans are only available for properties located in NYC.

What areas of Florida do you cover?

Hauseit® Agent Assisted FSBO is available in the South Florida counties of Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin and Saint Lucie. This region is covered by the Miami MLS, which is also known as the Southeast Florida MLS (SEFMLS).

What types of properties do you list?

Hauseit® lists all residential property types. In New York, this includes condos, co-ops, townhouses, semi-detached and detached homes as well as multifamily properties. In Florida, this includes condos, single and multi-family homes as well as land.

We’re currently marketing $88,000,000 of active listings in NYC with an average asking price of $1,400,000, as of June 2021. Our sold listings spend an average of 65 days on market. View our closed transactions here.

Where will my home be listed?

Your property will be listed according to industry standards on public websites and broker databases that are locally relevant for your region.

If your property is located in New York City, it will be listed on the REBNY RLS, the OneKey MLS plus locally relevant websites such as StreetEasy as well as nationally relevant websites such as Realtor.com. Please note that effective 12/31/2020, the REBNY RLS has removed the option to syndicate listings to The New York Times in response to the publication’s decision to move away from listing search functionality.

If your property is located in the Hudson Valley or Long Island, it will be listed in the OneKey MLS and all automatically syndicated sites such as Realtor.com, Zillow and Trulia.

If your property is located in South Florida, it will be listed in the Miami MLS (also known as the Southeast Florida MLS) and automatically syndicated to all major real estate websites.

This comprehensive listing syndication is automatically done by the MLS once your listing is uploaded. We use the same systems as other brokers who would charge you 6% in commission for the same service.

Please note that the MLS does not provide us with a list of website addresses where your property has been listed. If you wish to see examples of where your home is listed, we recommend doing an internet search for your home’s address to find the latest websites that have been indexed by search engines.

Which MLS is relevant for Manhattan?

Manhattan is technically covered by both the REBNY RLS as well as the Hudson Gateway MLS which is now part of the OneKey MLS. The Hudson Gateway MLS also absorbed the much smaller Manhattan MLS in 2016.

However, for all intents and purposes the REBNY RLS is the de facto MLS in most of NYC, and especially so in Manhattan where REBNY is based. You’ll only need the REBNY RLS anywhere in Manhattan; however, we also upload your listing to the OneKey MLS which means our sellers have the most complete marketing exposure possible.

Which MLS is relevant for Brooklyn?

Brooklyn is covered by the REBNY RLS as well as the Long Island MLS which is now part of the OneKey MLS. The REBNY RLS is more popular in neighborhoods closer to Manhattan such as Greenpoint, Park Slope, Bushwick, Bedford-Stuyvesant and even as far south as Windsor Terrace and Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Neighborhoods that are further out in the borough such as East New York or Canarsie may face more overlap with the OneKey MLS.

However, our sellers needn’t worry about picking the right MLS for their neighborhood because we automatically upload each listing to both the REBNY RLS as well as the OneKey MLS. This often means that our sellers have more complete marketing exposure than sellers paying a traditional 6% listing commission for only one MLS.

Note: We do not offer access to the Brooklyn MLS which is still used in some parts of deep southern Brooklyn like Brighton Beach, Gravesend or Bay Ridge.

Which MLS is relevant for Queens?

Queens is covered by both the REBNY RLS as well as the Long Island MLS which is now part of the OneKey MLS. The REBNY RLS will be more prevalent in neighborhoods closer to Manhattan such as Long Island City. Neighborhoods that are further out in the borough such as Flushing or Kew Gardens are typically covered by the OneKey MLS.

However, Queens sellers needn’t worry about having to choose the right MLS for their listing because we automatically upload every listing to both the REBNY RLS as well as the OneKey MLS. This double MLS exposure means our sellers in Queens have the most complete marketing exposure possible, often times more so than sellers paying a traditional 6% listing commission for only one MLS.

Which MLS covers The Bronx?

The Bronx is covered by both the REBNY RLS as well as the Hudson Gateway MLS which is now part of the OneKey MLS. The REBNY RLS is more popular in neighborhoods closer to Manhattan such as Riverdale. Neighborhoods that are further out in the borough such as Pelham Bay or Parkchester are covered more often by the OneKey MLS.

However, our sellers needn’t worry about picking the right MLS for their neighborhood because we automatically upload each listing to both the REBNY RLS as well as the OneKey MLS. This often means that our sellers have more complete marketing exposure than sellers paying a traditional 6% listing commission for only one MLS.

Which MLS covers South Florida?

South Florida is covered the Miami MLS, which is also known as the Southeast Florida MLS. Specific counties covered by the Miami MLS include Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin and Saint Lucie.

How will my listing appear?

Your listing will appear no differently than any other traditional listing marketed by a broker in your building or neighborhood. You can check out our listings on any 3rd party real estate search website, such as StreetEasy or Zillow.

How much commission should I offer buyers' agents?

The typical buyer agent commission is half of the 6% in commission that a traditional seller pays, or 3%. While offering a full commission will attract the maximum amount of attention from buyers’ agents, you can often get away with offering 2.5% in commission without hearing complaints from agents. The buyer agent fee you choose to offer is up to you, but we recommend offering something market rate so you can attract the attention of the 75% of buyers who are represented.

The best way to determine what percentage commission to offer is to assess what competing listings are offering to buyer’s agents. If you offer more than the typical listing in your area, expect to receive more interest from represented buyers. Similarly, you’ll receive less interest from buyers with agents if you offer a commission which is lower than what other listings are offering.

Will I need to sign a listing agreement?

Yes. After submitting your listing details and purchasing a listing package, you’ll then be prompted to e-sign a flat fee MLS listing agreement. Remember that the MLS and many 3rd party websites such as StreetEasy only accept exclusive sales listings, meaning only one broker is allowed to list a property for sale. As a result, we are unable to accept alternative listing agreement types or offer edits to our agreement, which is already heavily edited in favor of our sellers.

Can I preview the listing agreement?

Yes, we offer a preview and overview of our exclusive listing agreement in this video. Please note that we cannot provide you with a Word, PDF or other editable version nor can we offer any custom edits to our agreement. The agreement has already been heavily modified in your favor.

How will I receive inquiries?

All email, text message and voicemail inquiries pertaining to your listing will be forwarded to the email address you designate when submitting your listing details. We utilize automatic server-level forwarding rules to ensure rapid and automatic transmission of inquiries directly to your email. In addition to our automatic inquiry forwarding technology, our front desk team conducts routine manual checks to ensure that no inquiry is missed. During business hours, our front desk personnel will also send you a text message notification to alert you whenever a new listing inquiry is forwarded to your email.

For live inbound callers, we partner with call centers across the world to ensure 24/7 coverage of our phone lines:

Agents: (800) 746-9464 | listings@hauseit.com

Buyers: (888) 494-8258 | listings@hauseit.com

When an agent calls (800) 746-9464 to request a viewing, you will receive a notification from ShowingTime via email, phone or text message in order to approve the request. ShowingTime is an industry-leading showing management service which we provide free of charge to our Assisted FSBO sellers. ShowingTime assists with coordination and confirmation of appointments. A ShowingTime account will be created within 24 to 48 hours of your listing being uploaded. Once the ShowingTime account is created, you may customize how to receive alerts for showing requests.

If a direct buyer or an agent calls (888) 494-8258, our front desk team will take a message and forward it to you during normal business hours which are 9am to 6pm ET from Monday through Friday and 9am to 5pm ET on Saturday and Sunday.

Are inquiries relayed instantly?

Yes. We utilize automatic server-level forwarding rules to ensure rapid and automatic transmission of email, text message and voicemail inquiries directly to your email. During business hours, our front desk will also send you a text message notification to alert you whenever a new listing inquiry is forwarded to your email.

While our automatic server-level forwarding rules are highly accurate, it’s possible that certain inquiries might not trigger the automatic forwarding system. Our front desk team conducts routine checks to ensure that no inquiry is missed. Any inquiry which is not automatically forwarded will be manually sent to you during normal business hours within a commercially reasonable amount of time.

How are showings scheduled and handled?

Once we loop you in on an initial inquiry via email, our responsibilities end and it’s up to you to take it from there. As an Agent Assisted FSBO seller, it’s up to you to schedule viewings, attend showings, negotiate offers and manage the process from accepted offer to contract to closing. We recommend having an experienced real estate attorney guide you through the closing process.

Buyer’s agents may request a showing by calling our 24/7 Call Center at (800) 746-9464 which is powered by ShowingTime. Whenever a viewing is requested through this medium, you will receive a notification from ShowingTime via email, phone or text message in order to approve the request. ShowingTime is an industry-leading showing management service which we provide free of charge to our Assisted FSBO sellers. A ShowingTime account will be created within 24 to 48 hours of your listing being uploaded. Once the ShowingTime account is created, you may customize how to receive alerts for showing requests.

Will my contact information appear on the listing?

MLS rules prohibit contact information such as phone numbers, emails or website addresses from being included in your listing description. The contact information on your listing will be that of the listing agent, which is Hauseit®. Rest assured, all email, text message and voicemail inquiries pertaining to your listing will be forwarded to you via email. We utilize automatic server-level forwarding rules to ensure rapid and automatic transmission of email, text message and voicemail inquiries directly to your email.

For live inbound callers inquiring on your listing, we partner with call centers across the world to ensure 24/7 coverage of our phone lines:

Agents: (800) 746-9464 | listings@hauseit.com

Buyers: (888) 494-8258 | listings@hauseit.com

When a buyer’s agent calls (800) 746-9464 to request a viewing, you will receive a notification from ShowingTime via email, phone or text message in order to approve the request. ShowingTime is an industry-leading showing management service which we provide free of charge to our Assisted FSBO sellers. ShowingTime assists with coordination and confirmation of appointments.

If a direct buyer or an agent calls (888) 494-8258, our front desk team will take a message and forward it to you during normal business hours which are 9am to 6pm ET from Monday through Friday and 9am to 5pm ET on Saturday and Sunday.

Once we loop you in on an initial inquiry via email, our responsibilities end and it’s up to you to take it from there.

Did I receive any inquiries today?

We understand that it may be tempting to ask this question, especially in a slow market. Please rest assured that all email, text message, voicemail inquiries and front desk messages pertaining to your listing will be forwarded to the email address you designate when submitting your listing details. If you’re not getting enough traffic, please consider realistically pricing your property and ordering professional photography

Please also make sure to set realistic expectations with regard to the duration of the sale process by studying how long it took similar listings in your area to go into contract. For example, the typical time it takes for a listing to go into contract in NYC is well over 120 days. By definition, this means that, on average, you should not expect to be flooded with inquiries the moment you list.

How should I represent my role?

You can always explain to buyers and buyer’s agents that you are taking an active role in your home sale as the owner. You never need to obfuscate your identity. Remember that buyer’s agents can see the commission you’re offering them in the MLS.

For buyer agent inquiries, we recommend focusing on scheduling a showing instead of flaunting your status as the owner early on. There’s simply no reason to brag about your lower commission arrangement, as it might confuse or turn off buyers’ agents who are simply focused on getting their client in to see your apartment.

If an initial showing leads to something more substantial, it’s okay to explain that you’re taking an active role as the owner. Just remember that it’s quite common even for sellers who are paying full commission to cover showings if their broker has another showing or is on vacation.

How do I get started?

Submit your listing details to get started. We have one listing submission form for all our MLS offerings. On the next page, you’ll be prompted to e-sign a flat fee MLS listing agreement. You can cancel the listing agreement anytime and you will not owe us anything more for listing your property than the flat fee paid upfront.

After you’ve e-signed the agreement, you’ll be re-directed to our store where you can choose and pay for a listing package. After all steps have been completed, please allow two business days for your property listing to fully syndicate to all real estate portals.

Don’t have everything ready yet? You can always save a partially completed listing submission form to complete later. Please note that new orders are uploaded within 2 business days after you’ve submitted your listing details, paid and e-signed the listing agreement.

If you wish to have your listing uploaded at a specific date in the future, please only complete your order once you are ready to list. You can always make updates to your listing on our website after your listing is live.

How long does it take to get my listing up?

Once you have submitted your complete listing details, paid for a listing package and e-signed the listing agreement, our support team will upload your listing during regular business hours to the MLS and your listing will automatically syndicate to 3rd party websites within 2 business days.

If you’re going with our Core or Professional plan, you’ll be asked to complete your purchase and schedule your professional media appointment before submitting your complete listing details. Our photographers will usually have availability within the next few days, but you’ll have the opportunity to check their e-calendars before completing your purchase.

How do I update my listing?

For all requests, changes or updates to your listing, please submit a Listing Update Request. This submission form can also be found under the “Account” menu bar on our website. Please do not reply to our support team by email to request additional changes or edits as that inbox is not monitored. All additional edits or updates must be made by submitting a new listing update form. Thank you in advance for keeping the number of your requests reasonable so we can continue keeping this feature free for all customers.

Can I use my own photos?

Yes, as long as they are professional grade photographs, meaning photographs that have been taken with professional equipment, adequate lighting, etc. Professional photographs are very affordable and can be ordered a la carte here.

Please note that we cannot accept orders with unprofessional photos, i.e. photos taken with your phone’s camera, crooked photos with poor lighting etc. Not only will amateur photos dramatically hurt your chances of selling your property for the highest price, but they also damage the reputation of Hauseit®.

Can I use photos from a previous listing agent?

You may only utilize photos (or other listing media) commissioned by a previous listing agent (or any other 3rd party) if you’ve received explicit written permission to do so.

In the absence of written authorization, please do not assume that you’ve been given intellectual property (usage) rights for photos or any other listing media (floor plan, virtual tour, videos, etc.) created by a previous listing agent you may have hired.

Due to the serious legal risks posed by intellectual property theft, all Hauseit Assisted FSBO sellers are required to affirm the following statement as part of the listing submission process:

I possess the usage rights to all media which I’ve submitted. I acknowledge that the unauthorized use of third-party photos, floor plans, virtual tours, music or video without express written permission from the content owner may subject me to serious legal ramifications, including possible monetary liability. I understand that Hauseit has a zero-tolerance policy for intellectual property disputes of any kind, and I acknowledge that Hauseit will immediately and permanently delist my property without a refund should any 3rd party initiate an intellectual property dispute over any listing media I’ve submitted.

Am I allowed to cancel before the listing term expires?

Yes. You may discontinue the service at any time, although we strongly encourage you to utilize the full listing term. For example, the average time it takes for new listings to go into contract in NYC as of this writing is approximately 4 months. This estimate does not include the additional two to three months on average it takes to close on a transaction once you’re already in contract.

Furthermore, the average days on market for listings above $2mm is significantly higher than 4 months. It can take a year or more to sell certain properties above $5mm or very unique listings at lower price points. Even if there is nothing wrong with your pricing, photography and general marketing strategy, cancelling prematurely will likely not give your listing enough time, statistically speaking, to find a buyer.

Prior to listing, we strongly encourage you to research the average days on market for comparable listings in your area. Assuming you’ve priced your property in line with comps and you have professional photos and a floor plan, you should set expectations for similar performance when it comes to the timeline for going into contract with a buyer on your own listing. Keep in mind that general market conditions can change rapidly, so it’s always possible that your listing will take longer (or take even less time) to go into contract compared to recently sold comps. Overpricing your listing and/or using amateur photos may result in significant underperformance when it comes to the expected timeline for finding a buyer.

While the nominal flat fee payable upfront entitles you to up to 6 months of listing time, the fee is entirely non-refundable and no pro-rata refunds will be made in the event you elect to early terminate. A new listing package must be ordered if you decide to relist after the expiration of your original contract term or if you decide to temporary delist and relist during the contract term. View our refund policy.

Can you customize my listing on various websites?

Unfortunately we do not have any control over how third party websites choose to display information after they’ve received the data feed. This means we cannot take custom unit or building amenity requests, requests to change listing or building history, requests to change public records or other data aggregated by third party websites nor any other custom requests on how your listing is displayed on third party websites.

Can I pay for additional marketing or premium advertising?

Yes. Certain 3rd party websites such as StreetEasy offer premium advertising which you can elect to pay for. For example, StreetEasy offers the ability to feature your listing in search results for a non-refundable fee. While we do not believe paying for such features is necessary nor industry standard, you may request to feature your listing on StreetEasy by submitting a Listing Update Request. Learn more about StreetEasy’s Featured Listing and Agent Spotlight programs in this video.

How often should I host open houses?

You should host open houses every weekend. It’s critically important to show your property as often as possible, especially early on in your listing. Make your weekends free for Saturday or Sunday afternoon open houses and try to accommodate as many private showing requests as possible. Remember, most buyers will only make an offer if they’ve had a chance to view your property.

Don’t have time to manage an open house?  We’ve got you covered. Our agents can run your open house for a flat fee.* There are no other fees, commissions or any hidden charges. Pick open house dates when you submit your property information or give us at least 3 business days notice when you schedule your open house through our listing update form. Simply reply to your Rent an Open House Agent order confirmation email to specify which open house you’d like our partner agents to manage for you.

At your open house, our partners may bring property fliers and complimentary refreshments and will greet guests, answer questions and manage and deliver a sign-in sheet to you after the event. Our partner brokers will show up 10 minutes early to learn more about your property, then you are free to leave and let them take it from there.

Note: All open house services are dependent on availability and not guaranteed. Availability is limited for regions outside of New York City.
* Currently unavailable due to COVID-19.

What happens after I accept an offer?

With your home now receiving maximum exposure and assuming you’ve taken professional photographs and priced your property correctly, you’ll start seeing inquiries and offers roll in. Decide to accept an offer from an unrepresented buyer? Great, you’ll pay zero percent in broker commission at closing.

What if you accept an offer from a purchaser who is represented by a buyer’s agent? Pay only what you chose to offer to buyers’ agents in the broker database. You are free to sell to anyone you choose or no one at all, your call.

What’s next after you’ve accepted an offer? The next step is to prepare and send a deal sheet to both attorneys and the buyer’s agent (if applicable).

If you’re selling a condo or co-op, you’ll also need to email the building due diligence documents to the purchaser’s attorney. These items include the most recent building financials, the offering plan, purchase & sublet applications, house rules as well as the alteration agreement. We recommend placing these items in a cloud storage folder, using a service like Dropbox or Google Drive, and including that link in the email containing the deal sheet.

To avoid any delay in the purchaser signing the contract, we recommend assembling all of this paperwork at the very beginning of the sale process instead of waiting until you have an accepted offer. Similarly, we also suggest interviewing and selecting a real estate attorney at the beginning of the process instead of waiting until you’ve accepted an offer.

Keep in mind that an accepted offer is not binding until the purchase contract is fully executed, and the buyer’s attorney must review the due diligence documentation before advising her or his client to sign the contract. So any delay caused by not having this documentation readily available will put your deal at risk. If you’re unable to locate some or all of these items, please check with your managing agent or a board member.

If you’re selling a co-op or a condo and the buyer doesn’t have a broker, you may also need to help the buyer assemble and submit the purchase application, and in the case of a co-op, prepare the buyer for the co-op board interview. This phase of the deal happens after the contract is signed, and in the case the buyer is financing, after she or he has received a mortgage commitment letter.

We also recommend scheduling an introductory 30-minute consultation with one of our experienced real estate attorneys. Ask any legal questions you have and learn more about the step-by-step FL or NY closing process, from timing to closing costs.

What about selling FSBO instead?

Savvy home sellers know that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. There’s a reason why everyone isn’t selling For Sale By Owner (FSBO) and skipping brokers altogether. That’s because 75% of all home buyers are represented by agents who are loathe to show homes listed FSBO.

Why would a buyer’s agent do more work negotiating a FSBO commission agreement for each property plus risk disintermediation when 97% or more of all inventory is properly co-broked in the MLS?

So how can sellers save on commission plus receive full buyer exposure without risking their sale? By signing up for an Agent Assisted FSBO so their home is properly marketed on the MLS and all major websites.

When a home is listed in the MLS, the listing broker is contractually obligated to pay the buyer agent commission that he or she offers. As a result, buyer’s agents don’t need to negotiate commission agreements for each showing with listing agents, and cooperation between buyer’s agents and seller’s agents becomes seamless.

How is Assisted FSBO different from 1% Full Service?

A Hauseit® Assisted FSBO listing is a do-it-yourself listing service whereas 1% Full Service is a traditional, full-service listing. Although your home will be listed in the same places under either service, Assisted FSBO sellers are expected to fully manage their sale process from the moment they are relayed an inquiry by our front desk. There is no phone support, email support or pricing guidance included with our Base and Core plans.

As a result, an Assisted FSBO listing is most appropriate for sellers who can easily show their own home, who are self-starters, who are willing to do their research and who have the right level of expectations for a flat fee MLS listing. Learn more about the difference between Hauseit® Assisted FSBO and 1% Full Service in this tutorial video.

What happened to the old Professional Plan?

Our old Professional Plan allowed sellers to list their homes under one of our traditional partner brokers. We have chosen to deprecate this plan in order to provide a more consistent, high quality experience to our sellers by listing all properties under Hauseit®.

If you would like to list your home with one of our traditional partner broker brands, please check out our 1% Full Service offering or inquire for a custom quote for our original Professional Plan.

Does Hauseit® offer a rental listing service?

We do not offer a flat fee MLS rental listing service because of additional marketing costs specifically related to rentals. For example, StreetEasy currently charges brokers $6 per day per rental listing, which adds up to $1,080 over a standard 180 day listing term. If you are interested in paying this non-refundable surcharge upfront on top of our flat fee, then please email us and we may be able to customize a solution for you.

What is your refund policy?

How do I renew or extend my listing?

You may extend an existing listing (or renew/reactivate an old listing) by submitting a request using our Listing Update Tool. Simply select ‘Renew Listing’ from the drop-down menu titled ‘What Change Would You like to Make?’. You will be prompted to e-sign a flat fee MLS Agreement on the next page. Once completed, please purchase a new listing package here. Once you’ve e-signed the new agreement and ordered a renewal package, your listing will be extended or reactivated for 180 additional days.

Please note that this process will keep all listing details (such as price, description, etc.) the same as they were before. To make minor changes to your listing, please submit a separate Listing Update Request.

If you wish to make extensive updates and changes to your listing as part of the renewal/extension process, please complete the traditional new seller sign-up process here instead of using our listing update tool.

Can I call and email for advice?

In order to keep the price of this service as low as possible, we are unable to make exceptions and provide free advice, email support and phone calls of any type for our Base or Core Assisted FSBO customers. If you would like additional help, please consider our Professional Plan, consult your attorney or check out our flat fee phone support and broker consulting packages. If you simply don’t have time to read any of this and want more support, consider our 1% Full Service offering.

What if I have more questions?

All of your questions can be answered by watching our detailed Agent Assisted FSBO Training Videos and checking out the Hauseit customer support forum. If you still can’t find an answer to your question, please post your question on our forum and someone from the team or real estate community will get back to you.

This service is designed for sellers who are independent minded and open to figuring things out themselves. If you would like personal support throughout the process, please consider our 1% Full Service offering instead.

Do you accept difficult customers?

We aspire to keep the cost of this service as low as possible in order to make it affordable and accessible to as many homeowners as possible. This means we must set clear expectations with all customers in terms of what is included and what is not included in the service. Consequently, our customers are required to appropriately set expectations by understanding and acknowledging the following Terms of Service prior to signing-up:

  • The flat fee you’ve paid upfront is non-refundable, regardless of whether you elect to utilize the full 180 day listing term.

  • You’ve purchased a self-service, flat fee MLS listing which does not come with email or phone support from Hauseit®.

  • In order to make this service economical and low cost for consumers, we are unable to make exceptions and provide free advice, email support and phone calls of any type.

  • If you would like additional help, you agree to consult your real estate attorney, upgrade to 1% Full Service or purchase a Flat Fee Phone Support or Professional Broker Consulting package here.

  • You agree to submit all updates, edits or changes to your listing by submitting a Listing Update Ticket.

  • Updates requested through any other means, including by emailing or calling Hauseit® directly or by replying to an existing support ticket, will not be answered.

  • Update requests are processed within 1 business day, between 9am to 5pm ET, Monday through Friday.

  • Listing update requests submitted after business hours or over the weekend will not be read or processed until we are back in the office.

  • You will not email or call your listing broker, nor will your listing broker respond to any emails or phone calls from you.

  • You will not send test inquiries on your listing.

  • We make reasonable efforts to relay messages and inquiries within a commercially reasonable amount of time during regular business hours, as defined by us.

  • A typical home spends in excess of four months on the market before going into contract; therefore, it is unreasonable to expect inquiries and offers right after listing.

  • Pricing your home too high, not ordering professional photography or not having a floorplan will hurt your chances of selling and significantly reduce the volume of inquiries you will receive.

I have read, understand and agree to the above as well as the Terms and Conditions listed on the

Hauseit® website, which are available here. Furthermore, I have a full understanding of how the Assisted FSBO service works, including the limited scope of service, and I have read the Assisted FSBO FAQ and product overview.
