What is Next Day Home Sales?Next Day Home Sales is a seller-first real estate brokerage that specializes in representing people selling homes. Our mission is to redefine real estate in the seller’s favor. Next Day Home Sales set out to reinvent real estate in the seller’s favor, one transaction at a time by creating a business model to ensure absolute broker fidelity to seller clients by virtually eliminating conflicts of interest inherently created by dual agency. The Next Day Home Sales® brand is meant to be a better home selling model for REALTORS® who are experienced real estate listing brokers/agents to directly list and sell residential real estate for top dollar for sellers through cooperation not competition with other real estate professionals. Next Day Home Sales® is engineered for a new era in full-service residential home sales and is committed to the principle that with integrity there is a better way for REALTORS® to meet and exceed a seller client’s home selling needs. Next Day Home Sales® listing brokers/agents operate from a principle of integrity (not a commission-driven mindset) which is evident from our fair and honest MLS commission splits in favor of other real estate brokerages and their buyer’s agents, this makes them accountable to not just close a good deal, but to ensure you walk away with the most money for your home sale, too.

Can I buy a home with Next Day Home Sales?Next Day Home Sales is a seller-focused real estate brokerage that generally represents people selling homes. Next Day Home Sales believes you cannot truly effectively serve a seller’s and a buyer’s best interest simultaneously in the same real estate transaction (aka, dual agency) when their interests are diametrically opposed.
While your home is listed with us, we use smart technology to network with thousands of top buyer’s agents locally and nationwide from leading independent brokerages and large multinational franchises and help connect you with local buyer’s agents offering the best home buyer rebates and incentives that best fit your home-buying needs and who are ready to work with you in the purchase of your next single-family home, townhome, condominium, investment property, or luxury home anywhere in the United States and abroad. For a complete list and explanation of rebating practices: Rebates by State. A typical Cash Rebate can be calculated using the following: (Sales Price) x (Buy/Sell Commission %) x 20% = Cash Rebate.
How much does Next Day Home Sales charge sellers?We charge 1% – Subject to a minimum listing commission of $4,000 or home sale price of $400,000 to $749,999.

How Sellers SaveThe typical total broker commission is 5% to 6%, with half paid to the listing agent and half to the buyer’s agent.

In a nutshell, you can pay just 3.0% of your home’s sale price when you list with Next Day Home Sales, instead of the traditional 5% or 6%, making it easy to get the best price for your home and maximize your profits.
Home Price:$500,000 = Savings $10,000
Home Price: $1,000,000 = Savings $20,000
Home Price: $1,500,000 = Savings $30,000
How does Next Day Home Sales make money?When Next Day Home Sales® lists your home for sale our primary goal is getting your home sold within your timeframe (whether you’re in a hurry or not) at or above list price; not collecting the maximum allowable commission or fees like most traditional and flat fee real estate companies with buyer’s agents thru aggressive“ intra-company” marketing tactics (presumably to collect both the listing and selling sides of the commission) and then pressuring you (the seller) to accept a lower than ideal offer to make a quick sale. At Next Day Home Sales® we pride our exclusive listings on being “the buzz among buyer’s agents™” nationwide and on maximizing the number of full asking price or higher offers on your home in the shortest period of time by increasing a buyer’s agent commission on our Multiple Listing Service (MLS) listing agreements (up to 5.5%) to entice and motivate more local buyer’s agents searching MLS listings for their homebuyers to aggressively market, show and sell your home faster than comparable listings in your local market.
What are PREFERRED NEXT DAY HOME SALES® PARTNER BROKERAGES?We believe cooperation among REALTORS® instead of competition better serves clients and customers, the public, the real estate industry at large, and most importantly – a home seller’s best interests. As part of our home selling process to better serve our seller clients, we commonly refer sellers who will be purchasing another home to top buyer’s agents with local market knowledge where our seller is interested in purchasing their next home and who are currently offering home buyers the most competitive rebates and incentives to best suit our seller client’s home buying needs. Experienced buyer’s agents, who work for real estate brokerages that offer the most competitive consumer rebates and incentives (such as gift certificates, closing-cost payments, or free ancillary services such as home inspections or moving services) to help make buying a home less expensive for home buyers, are constantly added to our network of referable buyer’s agents for our sellers looking to buy their next home by completing and sending us a Next Day Home Sales® Preferred BROKER/Agent Referral Form.
Cooperation vs. CompetitionWhile other real estate brands focus on competition, Next Day Home Sales® shuns the “traditional” brokerage model of cut-throat real estate sales agents competing against each other and instead fosters a culture of partnership and cooperation with the largest independently owned and franchised real estate brands in the world in order to deliver the broadest marketing exposure — bar none — for our exclusive listings to get you top dollar for your home sale in any real estate market, 365 days a year. How do we help make any real estate market a seller’s market? Simple economics + Integrity! Higher commission on Multiple Listing Service (MLS) buyer’s agents side ► More demand among buyer’s agents when searching the MLS for comparable properties ► More competition and aggressive marketing and showings of our listings and your home by more MLS buyer’s agents and their brokerages ► Higher priced offers by more buyer’s agents clients = More profitable home sale for seller, 365 days a year.
Next Day Home Sales vs. Traditional BrokeragesWe call it like we see it. With most traditional real estate brokerages, buyer’s agents generally are encouraged by their brokerages to aggressively market and sell their own listings internally to their limited pool of homebuyer clients first, which is commonly referred to in the real estate industry as an “agent friendly closing,” or “keeping it in-house.” This traditional real estate brokerage practice of aggressive “intra-company” marketing and selling of their own listings (presumably to collect both the listing and selling sides of a high-end commission) – arguably, severely limits your home listing’s true market exposure to the greatest number of homebuyers who are ready willing and able to purchase your home for top dollar because of the allure for traditional real estate companies with buyer’s agents to earn both the listing side commission and selling side commission of a high-end commission split. At Next Day Home Sales®, we specialize in listing and selling homes and our seller client loyalty is truly undivided. Our fidelity to sellers is absolute which avoids any potential conflicts of interest traditional real estate companies face daily when their intra-company agents represent both the seller and buyer in the same transaction which generally only favors the brokerage’s profits, not the seller’s. Once we enter your property listing into the MLS, we actively market your listing to the widest possible homebuyer audience thru our network access to up to 300,000 real estate professionals (including top luxury buyer specialists and other High-End Brokers) to generate the maximum number of “asking price” offers or higher on your single-family home, townhome, condominium, investment property, or luxury home in the shortest period of time to get your home sold for top dollar anytime of the year, whether you’re in a buyer’s market, a seller’s market, a short-sale market, or a foreclosure market.
Why doesn’t Next Day Home Sales hold Open Houses?With most traditional real estate brokerages (independent brokerages and large multinational franchises), buyer’s agents generally are encouraged by their brokerages to aggressively internally market and sell their own company listings to their limited pool of homebuyer clients first which is commonly referred to in the real estate industry as an “agent friendly closing,” or “keeping it in-house.” This highly encouraged and lucrative traditional real estate brokerage practice of aggressive “intra-company agent” marketing and selling of their own company listings first (presumably to collect both the listing and selling sides of a commission) – arguably, severely limits a traditional brokerage listing’s (and seller’s home’s) true market exposure to the greatest number of homebuyers who are ready willing and able to purchase their seller client’s home for top dollar because of the allure for “traditional” real estate brokers and real estate companies with buyer’s agents to earn both sides of the commission split. No where do we readily see this overused traditional brokerage intra-company marketing and selling practice implemented at the expense of home seller’s best interests more than during “Open Houses” where the traditional listing brokerage has one or more (depending on the value of the property listed) of its buyer’s agents (usually not the listing agent) with little to no personal knowledge of the seller’s home holding the open house spending the majority of their time either aggressively trying to secure any buyer to collect both the listing and “selling” sides of the commission and/or soliciting new business from unrepresented walk-in buyers instead of focusing all their effort on selling the listed home for top dollar for their seller client. We believe motivated buyer’s agents help sell more houses than Open Houses do. Read REALTOR.com’s “The Dirty Secret About Open Houses: They’re Not About Selling Houses by Chrystal Caruthers”. “The real reason agents’ line up to do open houses is to recruit clients. Open houses are training and recruiting platforms for new agents, or agents who do not yet have listings of their own. Yes, they exist to sell homes, but they also exist to sell brokers. Brokers want unrepresented buyers to fall in love with their charm, their knowledge of the neighborhood, and their marketing prowess, all so they can represent the buyer walking through the door, whatever home they wind up buying. Your house is the agent’s best free marketing platform around.”

Are there additional benefits I can get when I list my home with Next Day Home Sales?
Yes, here are a few…
- Avoid the dilemma of whether you should work with just one REALTOR® to sell your house and to help buy another, or whether you should split the transaction between two impartial REALTORS®.
- Avoid any potential conflict of interests of dual agency that generally accompany working with traditional real estate brokerages and real estate companies, such as:
- Will my agent advise me as impartially and thoroughly when acting as a dual agent?
- Will the opportunity to earn both the “listing” and “selling” sides of the commission split tempt my agent to coerce a deal with me I might not otherwise accept?
- Will my listing agent negotiate the highest and best price for me if his/her brokerage is also negotiating the lowest and best terms for the buyer?
- Will my agent inhibit access to my listing by other agents with buyers by engaging in aggressive intra-company marketing and selling tactics?
- Avoid worrying whether photos have to be “perfect” to make your home stand out among comparable properties in your local market among buyer’s agents.
- Avoid the necessity of staging your home.
- Avoid seller anxiety and the need to put your home in pristine, buyer-friendly condition or “move-in” ready selling condition prior to listing; and feel more confident selling “as is”.
- Avoid the common necessity of haggling over minor items that could cost you the sale. Ex. Many first-time buyers ask for sellers to help with closing costs, with a higher buyer’s agent commission, buyer’s agents can offer to help their own clients close the deal, or help their own clients cover the costs of minor repairs.
- Avoid atypical contingencies that go beyond the norm which can delay or kill an offer.
- Avoid Open houses. Having to vacate your home for unexpected or last-minute visitors can play havoc with you and your family’s lives, especially around mealtimes. Having to avoid cooking entirely so that your kitchen is always pristine and your home never “smells” can get costly for you while your home is listed by traditional real estate brokerages and real estate companies.
- Avoid excessive unqualified buyers being shown your home; higher buyer’s agent commissions help to ensure buyer’s agents work with prospective buyers who have not only been pre-qualified, but also pre-approved for loans.
- Avoid increased buyer’s remorse with a motivated buyer’s agent helping to market and aggressively sell your home.
- Avoid the possibility of having to take your home off the market and start over with a new agent and your home being perceived by buyers as flawed or overpriced.
