  • Great Time for Veterans in Texas to Take Advantage of A VA Home Loan


    Hey all,

    6% commission assassin and your favorite real estate blogger, Jon, here. It is gorgeous outside today in Dallas, TX and I wanted to take the time to let y’all know what is going on in the real estate market here around our HQ here in the DFW metroplex. In case you missed my blog on the North TX Real Estate Market, let me catch you up to speed. Now is a great time for home sellers in North, TX. And if you are thinking about selling your home, seriously, give LystHouse a call. We are looking out for you and we know every penny counts when you’re moving. It can be a big headache. BUT, our team here is going to make it easy for you and take excellent care of you. That, I PROMISE.

    I just used a VA home loan to purchase my first home. I am so glad I had LystHouse walk me thru the entire process. I saved about $10,000.  Let me also tell you that my girlfriend is super happy too.

    You know at LystHouse about 1/4 of our employees, including myself, are Military Veterans or still serving in the Reserves or in some fashion. We run a tight ship and are really proud of our Military team that we use as a workforce multiplier going to fight for home sellers and home buyers every single day. If you need help with your veteran’s home loan or have questions, just ask to speak to any one of our Veteran’s on our staff here. They will set you straight.

    Going back to the DFW Real Estate Market, let me say one thing. The real estate industry here is losing their death grip on the MLS. Thankfully, LystHouse has the courage to fight against these ridiculously high 3% commissions by leveraging the power of technology. It makes things super easy for our real estate agents, but most importantly, it makes things easy for you, our customer. That is our priority and is at the forefront of our business model.

    You know, real estate agents that aren’t leveraging technology are way behind the times. They are gonna have to ditch the brochures, ditch their rolodex, and catch up and lower their commissions or else their business just will not survive. They are going to have to do the RIGHT thing. I’m proud I work for a company that is leading that fight not just professionally, but also morally, and ethically.

    Again, if you want to sell a home, buy a home, take advantage of a veterans home loan, or just talk to someone about what your real estate options are, give LystHouse a call. We are here to help answer your real estate questions. You’ll get as much professional real estate agent support as you need or want.

  • Savvy Home Sellers Are Already Using Technology Enabled Real Estate Brokerages, and That Scares Traditional Real Estate Agents

    Good News for Savvy #HomeSellers embracing Technology Enabled #RealEstate Brokerages

    The real estate industry is facing many fundamental shifts this year. Traditional Real Estate Agents are seeing their clients turn to technology enabled brokerages. That’s one of the reasons Dallas based brokerage and real estate industry disrupter, LystHouse Inc., is investing a whole lot money in their real estate agents and automated, technology based real estate systems this year.

    The archaic system of real estate agents and the home selling process has not changed much since its inception well before the internet was invented. Now, with LystHouse, you get all the benefits of having a real agent, coupled with LystHouse’s new technology enabled systems, allowing LystHouse customers to save an average of $8,495.00 when selling their home.

    LystHouse provides all the tools and services of a traditional real estate brokerage but with slick technology and low overhead to pass the savings on to their customers. LystHouse only charges 1% to sell property with an agent, and the best marketing, and technology available. If you buy a home with LystHouse, the company will sell your house for free. Some are calling LystHouse the Uber of the real estate industry just because of how revolutionary the LystHouse home selling technology is, and they are certainly sending shockwaves throughout the real estate industry as traditional real estate agents are being rendered obsolete.

    Millennials aren’t the only ones taking advantage of new real estate technology that automates the home buying process. At Lysthouse Inc., about 15 percent of customer acquisition this year alone was of Seniors aged 65 and over.

    “It’s very advantageous for home sellers over using a traditional real estate agent” said John Wingate, CEO of LystHouse Inc. “We thought our target market would primarily be millennials and those more comfortable with technology but we’re finding we were wrong. We’re getting customers from every end of the spectrum: young and old, male, and female. Everybody wants to maximize their ROI (return on investment) when they sell their home and LystHouse has the highest average of savings in the real estate and home sales industry.”  

    Wingate also added that he believes the diverse customer base was due to “ease of use, and an intuitive tool set that helps home buyers and home sellers work closely with real estate agents and that simplifies the real estate process for everyone.”

    “Home sellers want both the convenience of a technology enabled brokerage as well as the full service expertise of a seasoned real estate agent in person or over the phone, especially when dealing with such a major investment like buying or selling a home” Jon Shields, Creative Director of LystHouse, said in an interview.  “LystHouse is doing both.”

    This mix of vertically integrated technology and real life agent support is something that has never been done before in the real estate industry and people are taking notice. Real estate investors are keeping an eye on LystHouse, and with good reason. The company is changing the archaic real estate process for property buyers and home sellers – and it’s about time too.

    Demand for Dallas Homes for Sale is high and inventory of new homes for sale in North Texas is increasing. No doubt the North Texas Housing Market is heating up.

    By using LystHouse, home sellers keep more of their equity and maximize their ROI (Return On Investment). Home sellers also get all the help and advice they need from a local and licensed real estate agent in person or over the phone. LystHouse also provides full service, low cost FSBO (for sale by owner) and assisted selling options.

    Selling your home is simple and easy with LystHouse. LystHouse gives you access to the MLS and thousands of other websites like Zillow, Trulia, and others just to name a few – all from your online dashboard. You also get marketing access to local real estate agents and brokers to maximize your home’s lysting power. You even get access to real estate agents who are available to manage as little or as much of the process as you need to get your home sold fast. Customers really have nothing to lose because there is even a Money Back Guarantee.

    The savings for home sellers is HUGE. Some home sellers have saved over $10,000 by using LystHouse.

    “We’re cutting out big real estate commissions, and putting our customer first by giving them an awesome support team of seasoned and local real estate agents, that care more about their customers’ satisfaction than about their commission.” Wingate said.

    LystHouse is also changing the real estate landscape for home buyers too. In fact, if you buy your new home with LystHouse, they will sell your house for free.  All you have to do is find the home you would like to buy anywhere on the internet and a LystHouse real estate agent will show it to you. LystHouse real estate agents don’t care how many homes or showings it takes before you find the right home for you and your family because at LystHouse, customer satisfaction is paramount.

    So if you find a home for sale on Zillow or Trulia that you like and are interested in buying, all you need to do is call LystHouse to get started with a real estate agent and schedule a showing.

    The bad news for traditional real estate agents is that they may be getting fired or losing their jobs in droves soon because LystHouse is destroying ridiculous commissions in the real estate industry. The real estate community is facing several fundamental shifts this year. If real estate agents and brokerages can’t adapt along with the new technologies, like LystHouse is pioneering, then many realtors will be left in the dust with fewer and fewer customers.

    The good news for traditional real estate agents is LystHouse is hiring and accepting real estate agent applications here.

  • Learn How to Sell Your House Fast: Home-Staging


    Buying and selling your house online is quick and easy with LystHouse.com. Plus, the average home seller and buyer saves thousands of more dollars than by using a traditional real estate agent.

    That said, there are SOME things you must do  when selling your home so you don’t scare away potential buyers. This is where home-staging comes in.

    Home-staging:  preparing your house to appeal to buyers.

    When preparing your home for show time, remember: A fresh coat of paint and a little bit of landscaping goes a long way. Avoid colors like animal print and hot pink. Black is also bad.  Try neutral colors to inspire the buyer’s imagination.     

    Clean and put away all dirty dishes. Clean out that sink and take out the trash before any buyer walk through. Nobody wants to see that science experiment you’ve been keeping there.

    Organize and hide the clu­­­­tter. To each their own, but an offsite storage container is a great place to store your do-it-yourself taxidermy or home-made doll collection that may turn off some buyers.

    To sell your house fast, make sure to keep it immaculate. As word spreads like wildfire about your house on the market with LystHouse.com, a potential buyer may request a walk through at any moment.

    If you’re giving the tour yourself, make sure to make yourself available to answer all questions but also give potential buyers some alone time to kick it around and discuss things amongst themselves while they explore. You want them to really imagine themselves living there.
