WE HAVE THE MOST UNIQUE BUSINESS MODEL IN THE COUNTRY!
HelpUBuy America is the only flat-fee Exclusive Buyer Agency in the country. For 22 years, buyers have trusted us to help them choose a home, arrange financing, negotiate a great price and favorable terms, and all the other tasks involved with buying a home. Buyers assume all of the risk in a real estate transaction. Now, more than ever, they need proper and effective representation.
EARN A GREAT LIVING IN A RESPECTABLE WAY
It’s hard for buyers to trust that their Realtor is going to negotiate the best deal for them when their commission is based on the sales price. To eliminate this conflict of interest, HelpUBuy America offers full-service and flat-fee pricing. Our flat fee ranges from $4,500-$8,000, depending on the area, and the balance of the commission is rebated back to the buyer at closing.
Don’t Confuse Us With Discounters!
To qualify for flat-fee pricing, our buyer/clients must agree to do much of the legwork on their own. HelpUBuy America agents don’t spend hours driving buyers around town, and they don’t work all hours of the day and night. Our commission is fixed, our services are limited, and homebuyers LOVE it! Not only do they receive the highest level of buyer representation available, they are rewarded for doing part of the work. Of course, our traditional price-based commission plan is always available for buyers who don’t want or qualify for our flat-fee program.
MOST REAL ESTATE AGENTS FAIL WITHIN TWO YEARS
According to the Department of Labor, the median real estate agent’s income in 2004 was $35,670. That’s gross income, out of which all their business expenses had to be paid! The bottom 10% had a gross median income of only $17,600. Why? First, competition is fierce. The National Association of Realtors has 1.7 million members! In any given city, traditional real estate companies have 50-200 agents competing for the same buyers and sellers. There is no competitive advantage working for these brokerages, and new agents are generally destined to fail within their first two years in business. Second, the internet has created a much more educated buyer. Historically, the real estate industry has catered to sellers, to the financial detriment of the buyer. Today’s buyers know better. They understand that they are entitled to proper representation. They know that if a Realtor works for a company that takes listings, they are merely a dual agent disguised as a buyer’s agent. When given an option, buyers will always opt to work with an agent that they know will always be on their side.
IS IT SMART TO GIVE UP REPRESENTING SELLERS?
It’s brilliant, actually. When you stop competing with the thousands of seller’s agents in your area, you become your city’s “go to” person for buying a home. Do you want to be a small fish in a big pond or a big fish alone in the pond?
The truth is this: In any given real estate office, the vast majority of agents work with buyers, not sellers. These agents might list a home once in a while, but the bulk of their transactions involve representing the buyer. See for yourself! Visit the website of any big brokerage in your area, and then check their agents’ production on the MLS. You’ll find that a handful of agents have 95% of the listings and the rest are working with buyers. Instead of making the very smart decision to specialize in buyer representation, they opt to “leave their listing options open – just in case.” They pay ridiculous commission splits, waste their time in sales meetings, work for free as their broker’s receptionist, and run around town wearing their “I sell houses!” pins, hoping to be approached by a buyer or seller in need of their services. Day after day, year after year, the beat goes on. The brokers get rich and the agents go out of business.
Chick-Fil-A makes a fortune selling chicken. LEGO doesn’t sell dolls or toy trucks. Yogurt shops don’t sell ice cream. It’s not necessary to be a generalist in order to make a great living in real estate. In fact, your odds of success increase exponentially if you fill a gap in the marketplace and become a buyer specialist. The world doesn’t need another run-of-the-mill Realtor, but homebuyers are desperate for Exclusive Buyer Representation.
IS EXCLUSIVE BUYER AGENCY RIGHT FOR YOU?
Are you an aggressive sales person? Can’t take “no” for an answer? Are you a fan of door knocking and passing out flyers in parking lots? If so, you definitely WON’T like life as an Exclusive Buyer Agent. EBAs are terrible sales people. We’re helpers, not closers. We treat our clients like we would our little brother or sister; we hold their hand and walk them safely through the process. Exclusive Buyer Agency is endorsed by all the consumer good guys like Dave Ramsey, Ralph Nader, Jean Chatzky, and Suze Orman. Even the Department of Justice recommends that buyers hire an Exclusive Buyer Agent rather than a traditional agent. It’s good to be on the receiving end of these endorsements!
WE’RE EVERYTHING YOU LOVE ABOUT REAL ESTATE
Being an Exclusive Buyer Agent with HelpUBuy America means a stable income and the opportunity to design your own life. It’s pretty darn easy to earn $4,000-8,000/ month working part-time with us. The earning potential is limitless. We give you the business model, reputation, and tools you need to be a success, and we support you every step of the way. Making a living in real estate is a lot easier when you offer a service that people actually want.
PROGRAMS FOR PART-TIMERS, NEW AGENTS, AND EXPERIENCED AGENTS
It’s not easy to launch a career in real estate. We understand. HelpUBuy America offers programs for all agents, whether you are newly licensed, part-time, or have been in the business for years.
TRAINING, TRAINING, TRAINING!
Big brokerages have been using training as a recruiting tool for years, and the vast majority of new agents STILL fail within the first two years. The truth is that representing buyers and sellers is pretty easy. The hard part is finding the clients. If you’re spending time in “training” classes to learn anything other than how to spot defects in a home or how to negotiate a good deal, you’re wasting your time. We don’t offer you classes on goal setting or try to motivate you to knock on doors or make cold calls. That’s the kind of thing you have to do when you’re selling a service that no one wants. You need to come to us self-motivated. When you do, we teach you how to do two things, and two things only. First, we teach you how to protect the rights of homebuyers, including choosing a home, shopping for financing, and negotiating a deal. Second, we show you how to market yourself as a homebuying expert. That’s it!
GET IN ON THE GROUND FLOOR
It’s not our goal to hire 1,000 agents in each territory. We’re not about holding licenses or using unsuspecting new agents as a source of profit. We’re about launching careers and serving homebuyers. Working with HelpUBuy America means you won’t be competing with 200 agents from your own company; we’re hiring a maximum of 30 agents in each city, and we only want the best and the brightest.
