How is Hizzil.com different than the MLS, Zillow and Realtor.com?
Sellers add their house as a "Listing" - public - home buyers search the Listings on sites such as Zillow, MLS, Realtor.com.
With Hizzil.com, Sellers add their house as a "Invitation" - private - home sellers search the pre-qualified home buyers as Wishlists and send Invitation to their Realtor.
Hizzil.com is the other half of the Real Estate Market and to be used in correlation with Seller Listing sites.
Invite buyers and their Realtor and start with the price you believe it is worth. Follow a discounted/selling timeframe. 3rd party websites offer market valuations.
30/60/90/120 day value ranges. The faster you want to sell...the lower price. Higher price than it's comparables may take more time and a specific buyer.
Presume the Real Estate Agent works for the buyer's interest. In most States, A Real Estate Agent can fairly work both sides of a Real Estate transaction, but some states the agent must represent only the Buyer. Sellers are encouraged to read the "selling safeguards" and have a local Real Estate Attorney / title company, review contracts.
Hizzil saves on the total commission. Most Real Estate contracts average 6% commission for 2 agents. Hizzil connects buyers and sellers through 1 Realtor, saving half or 3% commission, which equates to $9,000 savings on a $300,000 house.
There are many facets to a real estate transaction. A good real estate agent provides wisdom and enhances the transaction.
Hizzil is a platform for sellers who can perform the selling duties included in the Seller's Checklist...such as preparing the home to be sold, setting and confirming showings and negotiating the contract details.
The buyer's lender will order an appraisal...or a 3rd party fair market value. The lender will NOT loan above this appraisal value.
"AS-IS" to a seller is not always As-Is. If your buyer is financing, the lender and insurance will REQUIRE specific conditions are met. For Example, most insurance companies will not insure a home with a roof over 20 years. IF the seller wants the property to qualify for financing, then the roof will have to be replaced prior to sale. CASH buyers will be the only true "As-Is" sale for there are no contingencies placed by 3rd parties.
Prepare your home by buyer type. If the primary buyer for your property is an FHA buyer, then it is best to have functionality items such as roof, A/C and appliances working. If you have a luxury buyer, it may be best to upgrade cosmetic items and fixtures.
