Thank you for visiting SellingWausau.com, Don & Carol Ann Hall & the Assist-2-Sell Team welcome you.

Who is Assist 2 Sell?  We are a FULL SERVICE Real Estate Company who Charges Less Commission.  Assist 2 Sell of Wausau has been in business since 2006.  There are over 300 Assist 2 Sell franchises in North America.  Assist 2 Sell of Wausau has ranked in the top 10 since we opened.   

How are we different?  Most Companies in our area can charge as much as 6%, 7% or even 8% commission along with additional fees to sell your home. They call these fees transaction fees, broker administration fees or electronic document storage fees.  At Assist 2 Sell we charge 5% or as low as $2495 commission with NO additional fees to sell your home.  Why?  Because that's what gets the phone to ring.  Some companies market themselves by flying balloons, wearing gold jackets, having a pet dog or even painting their posts orange.  We just charge less commission.  It's that simple!  Customers don't care whose sign is in the yard. They only care if it's for sale, the next question is what is the price, and finally they ask how many bedrooms and baths.  Never in my 20 years has someone told me they only want to look at homes listed by a certain company.  They want to look at all homes in their price range who ever they are listed by.   

When your home is listed with Assist 2 Sell we take all the phone calls, we show your home, we take all the calls from other Realtors and arrange for them to show your home.   We assist you with pricing, we assist you with negotiating, we deal with all the paper work, the bankers, appraisers and inspectors.  We advertise your home with print advertising including the monthly Real Estate Guide and most importantly we place your home in MLS (Multiple Listing Service).  This allows your home to be uploaded to over 100 different web sights including all the big ones like Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow and SellingWausau.com.  Your home will also be featured on all of the other Real Estate Companies web sights just like their listings are on our web sight.  Assist 2 Sell is a name, like Bob's Realty.  We are not help you sell (they went out of business).  We have sold over 700 properties since we opened Assist 2 Sell in 2006.  The average realtor in that same time period has sold 62. Charging less commission may mean that we make less per transaction but we make it up by selling more volume and selling more gives us more experience to draw from.  This business is much more difficult today than it ever was.  More rules and regulations along with all the difficulties we face dealing with lenders.  You need a team that is experienced and can handle every type of transaction.  That is the Assist 2 Sell Team! Remember, we are Full Service with Savings!

Please take your time to explore all the information & resources available including the ability to search all properties listed in the Central Wisconsin area by all Real Estate Companies. You no longer need to take the time to visit multiple websites, we have designed this site to be the only one you need to find your dream home or sell your current one!

We can show you how much your home is most likely to sell for, assist you in determining an asking price, give you a written estimate of how much money you would net at closing/sale and show you how to best prepare your home for the market.

REALTORS® Expect Home Prices to Increase by 4% in the Next 12 Months

In a monthly survey of REALTORS®, respondents are asked “In the neighborhood(s) or area(s) where you make the most sales, what are your expectations for residential property prices over the next year?

Among the respondents, the median expected price change is four percent. The chart below shows median expected price change by state based on survey responses collected during February–April 2018[1], according to the  April 2018 REALTORS® Confidence Index Survey

Respondents from the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, California, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and Wisconsin expect the highest price growth in the next 12 months, with the expected median price growth at more than five to nearly eight percent.

Owing to tight lack of construction, house prices have increased steeply since 2012 compared to the growth in income. Nationally, the median price of U.S. existing homes sold was 68 percent higher than the level in January 2012, the year the housing market started to recover solidly.  Meanwhile, wages have increased only 15 percent since then.

Based on the FHFA House Price Index at the state level, the strongest price growths from 2012 through 2017 were in the West region such as Nevada (102 percent), California (85 percent), Arizona (76 percent), Oregon (74 percent), Idaho (70 percent), Washington (68 percent), Colorado (68 percent), Utah (65 percent). Home prices have also increased steeply in Florida (73 percent), Michigan (71 percent), and Texas (47 percent).

Testimonials

Excellent! Don and Carol Ann know their business very well, and took the time to educate us through every step of the process. They are very honest and professional. My wife and I really felt that they cared about us as clients and about helping us sell our house. Don and Carol Ann stayed in constant communication with us during the whole process! B G.
In October we were relocated 165 miles away for an employment opportunity. We had bought and sold eight other homes in different states over the years and Don and Carol Ann Hall were by far the best Realtor's with whom we have ever worked. They were extremely professional & excelled at providing communication about showings, interest, etc. They went above and beyond in coordinating various projects that needed to be done in our absence. I would highly recommend Don and Carol Ann Hall to anyone selling or buying a home. They will provide a high level of service that will exceed your expectations! R S.
We had a great experience! We were in a tight time frame to find a new home & Carol Ann was able to accommodate our schedule when we wanted to look at houses and through out the buying process. She was able to coordinate everything and keep us organized when we felt anything but. We're so appreciative and would definitely recommend Assist 2 Sell and /or use them again in the future. J H.
