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!

If you are considering selling your home, we offer a FREE, No Obligation Market Analysis. 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.

Latest Realty News from NAR

Which Metro Areas Have Rising Prices and Faster Selling Time as of June 2018?

Home prices continue to increase although the pace of price appreciation has slowed. As of June 2018, the national median sales price of existing homes sold rose to a peak of $276,900, the highest level since 20001 when NAR started tracking this data. However, the pace of appreciation has been slowing. In June 2018, the national median sales price rose 5.2 percent on a year-on-year basis (2.2 percent on an inflation-adjusted basis), a slower rate of growth compared to the price appreciation of near or above 10 percent in 2013.

 

The question is: will home prices continue to increase? One way to think about this is to compare the price appreciation with days on market. If properties continue to sell at a faster pace, this means that demand continues to outpace supply, and there continues to be an upward pressure on prices. However, if properties are increasingly staying on the market longer, then this means that supply is starting to outpace demand, causing prices to fall. As of June 2018, the median list price increased compared to one year ago in 419 metro areas tracked by Realtor.com (414 in June 2017). Meanwhile, properties sold faster compared to one year ago in 495 metro areas (395 in June 2017).

The data visualization below shows the year-on-year change in median list price (Y-axis) against the year-on-year change in days on market (X-axis). Most metro areas lie on the upper left quadrant where the median list prices rose and the median days on market fell in June 2018 compared to one year ago. There are only three metro areas where days on market rose and median list prices fell: Johnston, PA; Enid, OK, and Minot, ND.

In the high price metro areas, the median list prices rose compared to one year ago, but they have slightly declined compared to May 2018 levels. In San Jose-Sunnyvale, the median list price rose compared to one year ago (14.7 percent), but the median list price decreased compared to the May 2018 level (-3 percent). In San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, CA, median prices rose compared to one year ago (8.7 percent) but also slightly declined from the May 2018 level (-0.4 percent). In Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA, the median list price also rose compared to one year ago (5.2 percent) but declined compared to the May 2018 level (-0.5 percent).

In summary, in many areas, demand is still outpacing supply, so there is still upward pressure on prices for now in many metro areas, although prices have started to trend downwards modestly in high-price metro areas (e.g., San Jose, San Francisco, Los Angeles). Affordability challenges, rising interest rates, and the modest increase in housing starts are likely exerting a downward pressure on prices. However, over the longer-term, there is still the upward demographic demand pressure from those in the 35-44 age groups (mostly millennials) who will increasingly get older, get married, have better incomes, and start forming households and buying homes. The U.S. Census Bureau projects the number of 35-44 year-old adults to increase from 41.3 million in 2018 to 47.2 million in 2028.

A Dive into 2018 Member Demographics

This blog was written by NAR Research’s intern, Bronwen Leibe.

Hi again, it’s me, the research intern! Let’s take a closer look at this year’s member profile!

In the 2018 NAR Member Profile, females still make up 63 percent of all REALTORS®. This remains notably constant throughout years of experience (girl power!). Females dominate the profession, except in function breakdown; they make up a smaller percentage of broker-owners, managers with selling, and appraisers.

The median age of REALTORS® for 2018 is 54 years old. Although, there has been a slight increase in younger REALTORS® (30 years old and younger) to 5 percent.  The consistent largest age group, those 65 years and older, has increased from 17 percent to 20 percent of all REALTORS®. As a large population embarks on retirement, there will be the need for other generations to enter into the industry.

Interestingly, REALTORS® aged 45 to 54 are a larger portion with 2 or less years of experience than REALTORS® aged 30 years old and younger. Are people coming from other occupations? Well, only five percent of REALTORS® reported real estate was their first career. With 95 percent coming from another occupation, were their previous jobs helpful to a transition in real estate? Thirty-two percent of REALTORS® had a previous career in management, business, finance or sales/retail. To me, those industries’ skills are reasonably applicable to real estate.

Conjointly, education at all levels is a valuable asset for an occupation. Thirty percent of REALTORS® have had some college education, 13 percent have their Associate’s Degree. A third of real estate agents have Bachelor Degrees, while 13 percent have a graduate degree. Nonetheless, investment in your occupation is just as noteworthy as investment in your education. Seventy-two percent of REALTORS® said that real estate was their only occupation— showing that agents heavily invest their time into the industry. In fact, a considerable majority of 52 percent work 40 or more hours per week.  On top of working in real estate, two-thirds of NAR members volunteer in their communities! Already, REALTORS® play a big role in community building and it is admirable that NAR members are contributing outside of their occupation.

 

Second Quarter Single Family Metro Market Prices

The National Association of REALTORS® quarterly home prices increased again this quarter. Prices continue to drift up this quarter with 90% of the markets showing home price appreciation. We can also look at the top metro areas whose price grew the fastest. Housing affordability is down and for first time buyers qualifying incomes are rising along with the down payment on a new home. Knowing the mortgage rates and the qualifying incomes will help potential homeowners figure out what metro areas are affordable for them. Here is a look at the metro areas with the strongest price growth of the second quarter 2018, as well as a look at the yearly change in median existing single-family home prices for the top five highest and lowest growth metro areas of the second quarter 2018.

These are the top five single-family metro areas with the highest home price appreciation:

These are the bottom five single-family metro areas that had a decline in home price appreciation:

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.
