Hauseit Agent Assisted FSBO FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Why aren't discount brokers more common?
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 and skipping brokers altogether. That’s because 90% 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, commonly known as a flat fee MLS listing, with one of our brand name partner brokers who never openly discount their services. Work with the best for less!
Why is selling FSBO in NYC a good idea?
Like most New York City apartment or townhouse homeowners, you don’t want to pay the average $120,000 (6% x $2 million average home value) in Realtor fees and commissions. You may have heard about FSBO (selling by owner without a broker) and the importance of competition in real estate from the US Department of Justice, but you are too busy with work to spend the hours required to figure out how to sell FSBO in NYC.
Hauseit simplifies the NYC FSBO process and helps you sell by owner without a traditional broker for a low, flat fee of a few hundred dollars instead of a few hundred thousand dollars. We want you to save that average 6% NYC broker’s commission and put it towards a better use. Selling FSBO in NYC ensures that you maximize your profit when selling. By cutting out the typical NYC 6% agent commission, you can significantly reduce your closing costs which normally eat 8-10% of your sale price instantly.
Why should I choose Hauseit when selling FSBO in NYC?
Hauseit was born in NYC and knows the NYC FSBO market inside and out. Since our founding in late 2014, we’ve listed hundreds of millions of dollars worth of properties in the New York City market alone. We are proud to be the largest FSBO company in NYC by listings, deal experience and number of partner agents. We have helped NYC residents sell apartments by owner in the New York boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and The Bronx ranging from $100,000 to $10,000,000.
Is Hauseit the right service for NYC based sellers?
Hauseit lists your home on the sites and databases which are actually relevant and used by NYC buyers and buyers’ agents who are in the market for a new property in the city.
Whether you are looking to sell a co-op, condo or townhouse FSBO in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx or Queens, we can help you sell your home by owner and save six percent in agent fees.
Through our Agent Assisted FSBO listing service, we list your property on the most important websites and local New York City broker databases such as The New York Times, Realtor.com, StreetEasy, REBNY’s RLS Database, OLR (On-Line Residential) and dozens of other real estate search websites. This broad, comprehensive listing syndication is actually the same system used by NYC full service listing agents who charge 6% to their clients. We allow NYC FSBO sellers to level the playing field against traditional agents by giving you this same technology for zero percent commission.
More specifically, your NYC FSBO listing will appear on REBNY’s RLS Database and all recipients of RLS data such as OLR (On-Line Residential – NYC Broker Database), Nestio (NYC Broker Database), RealtyMX (NYC Broker Database), RealPlus (NYC Broker Database) as well as brokerage specific databases such as Taxi and Limo. Our syndication also includes dozens of major real estate search websites such as Realtor.com, The NY Times, StreetEasy, Zillow, Trulia, Brownstoner, Agorafy, Homes.com and many more. We’ll upload your listing to all of these places all at once!
How much could I save on my home sale?
You can save up to all 6% in typical real estate agent commissions by listing with an Agent Assisted FSBO in NYC. 6% on the average NYC home worth $2 million is equivalent to $120,000!
Hauseit’s NYC Flat Fee MLS listing package lists your home on the REBNY RLS broker database, The New York Times, Realtor.com, StreetEasy, Zillow, Trulia, Brownstoner, Homes.com and many more popular property websites for a small, one-time flat fee. Our NYC FSBO listing service is specifically designed for the New York City market. As NYC’s largest FSBO and buyer closing credit company, we are the most trusted Flat Fee RLS Listing service in New York City. Not convinced? Google us to read our hundreds of positive reviews.
Will I experience reduced broker harassment?
The best part about working with Hauseit to list FSBO in NYC is that your entry only listing will appear as a traditional full-service listing. This means that you won’t be easily identifiable as a FSBO seller, so NYC realtors and brokers won’t cold call you to try and get you to pay a full listing commission.
Shockingly, many competing FSBO listing providers openly advertise your listing as an owner-managed listing. This is bad for many reasons:
How do free open houses work?
As part of our flat fee Agent Assisted FSBO listing package, we’ll even run your first two open houses for free, just like a traditional listing broker in NYC who charges 6% commission. The difference is that with Hauseit, you’ll owe nothing more than the one-time flat fee. All of our open houses are professionally managed by licensed partner agents. We will do the following at each of our complimentary open houses, based on availability:
We hand out color property flyers
We manage a sign-in sheet and deliver it to you at the end of the open house
We answer questions and leave you with a complete summary of all follow-ups
We bring complimentary refreshments such as bottled waters and chocolates
Will I have control of my sale process?
It’s no surprise that the vast majority of our clients decide to sell FSBO in NYC because they want to both save money and maintain control of their home sale. The problem is that with many competing services, you give up control in one way or another. Whether you are selling a coop or selling a condo, we ensure that our FSBO sellers maintain complete control of their transaction from listing through to closing. Here are some examples of ways that other FSBO platforms take away control from the seller:
They poach your leads and given them to other agents, who then ask for a buyers’ agent fee
They charge you additional, forced fees like a 1% transaction management fee
They don’t automatically forward you all leads from your listing
