What are the requirements to sell on™
Sellers must Register an Account and Create a Listing by providing property details. After approval, sellers work with Sellio’s platform to set up the listing. Seller must 

Be an owner, agent and/or have legal right to sell the property
Be reasonable on market pricing and ready, willing and able to sell
​Understand that the Listing and information is controlled by the seller 100% 
Must provide truthful and accurate information to attract the most qualified buyer and sell for the highest price. 
​Understand Sellio™ is a platform and marketplace facilitating connections between buyers and sellers, does not represent any party to the listing or perform brokerage activities and does not guarantee any property will be sold. 
​Be moving out at closing OR the property is being sold subject to the property being occupied by owner or a tenant under lease terms that will be stated on the listing. 

Abiding by these requirements protects the integrity of the marketplace. If you are unwilling to sell, unrealistic in your pricing expectations or do not provide sufficient info for buyers your listing may not qualify to enter the marketplace.
How does Sellio™ manage offers for me?
After you set up your listing in your Seller Portal with the information, interested buyers will have a chance to view the information, do their Due Diligence and make offers LIVE on the listing. Buyers place an Offer Hold, a $1000-$3000 pre-authorization hold on their credit card,, and then choose their offer amount. 

The price will drop in increments based on the Listing Period you choose, and the buyer who places the highest offer first, will secure the rights to win the listing with a contract.  Sellers reserve the ultimate right to choose not to sell.

All buyers and offers are pre-qualified with ID and Proof of Funds prior to ensure legitimacy.

**Make sure all buyers are making offers on the Sellio™ Listing to level the playing field. If you take offers outside of your Listing it will compromise the integrity of your asking price and you will not get the full value of the Sellio™ process.
What are the different types of Sellio™ listings?
Sellio offers different levels of service and varies depending on the seller and when the listing is being created.  Generally Sellers are the home owners, the representing agent of the home owner or an investor with equitable interest in the property.
How does the Reverse-Style Auction work?
You will set your listing's highest (reasonable) Starting Price, Reserve Price (lowest acceptable price) and the Listing Period (the time frame when buyers can make offers). Your dynamic Asking Price is displayed LIVE on the listing and will drop incrementally until it reaches your Reserve Price

Buyers can secure the Listing at the current Asking Price, or set a lower offer during your Listing Period.  Buyers are required to place an Offer Hold (pre-authorization/hold of $1000-$3000) to make an offer. The buyer who places the highest offer first can be selected (at the sole discretion of the seller) as the winner so you can start closing. If your listing does not secure interested buyers during your Listing Period, your listing will disappear and you will have the option to relist and start the listing over.
How do I set up a listing for my property?
Register and Click "Create a Listing" on any page of the site and Sellio™ will walk you through step-by-step.  You will have a dedicated Support Specialist that will help you  from start to finish.  You may select the seller options that best fits your ownership and interests.  For more information visit the Sellers page in the Menu.
What is the Listing Period?
The Listing Period is the time period you allow buyers to place an offer and purchase your client's property. Your Listing Period can be up to 90 days and based on you or your client's specific needs. You and your client will receive a unique Listing URL to send to buyers. The Listing Period cannot be changed after the Listing goes live, unless the seller cancels or the seller decides to re-list.
What is the Reserve Price?
The Reserve Price is the the lowest acceptable amount your client will sell for. When the Listing reaches the Reserve Price, it the listing will disappear and end.
What if the buyer backs out?
If the buyer doesn't perform after you select them as the winning buyer of the listing, the buyer's $1000-$3000 becomes a non-refundable charge to the buyer, so your buyer will have 'skin in the game.
How do I schedule showings?
Interested buyers will inquire directly on the listing with questions or to access the property. You will receive these questions and requests and handle according to your standard scheduling processes.
Do I need to do repairs or clean the house?
No. 90% of the properties on Sellio™ are sold as-is.
How do I share my listings with buyers?
When you Create a Sellio™ Listing, you will receive a unique Listing URL to share with interested buyers. We encourage speaking with buyers, answer questions, etc... but do not negotiate price directly. Doing this will compromise the integrity of your listing and you will not get the full value of Sellio™! Just tell them "I'm taking all offers on Sellio™ to save time."  Then share your Unique Listing URL when they are ready.

Remind them to do their due diligence DURING the Listing Period.
What If I want to cancel the listing?
You control the listing 100% and reserve the right to end or cancel the listing at any time, for any reason. You can also take any offer at any time and start closing. 
What are the best properties suited for Sellio?
Sellio™ can be utilized for the sale of essentially any property, however are best suited for motivated sellers who are looking for an efficient way to sell directly to a buyer.
Can I sell to a buyer outside of Sellio™?
To protect the pricing consistency and integrity of our sellers' listings, and to level the playing field for buyers, it's important that you direct all buyer's offers to go through the Sellio™ Listing.  If this is not possible for any reason, please inform Sellio™ immediately and we'll ensure all offers are entered and considered.   

By entertaining offers outside of the system, you can compromise the integrity of your listing, the Sellio™ platform, and can cause complications to close the property. 
What happens to the property if the Listing Period ends without a buyer to secure the property?
If a Listing ends without a buyer, the listing is removed. The seller reserves the right to accept a lower offer if applicable, and negotiate with a buyer that made an offer via Sellio™ to propose new terms.  Seller can also re-list the property at the available rates.
How do I communicate with buyers?
During your Listing Period, Sellio™ allows buyers to add your listing to their 'watchlist', inquire with questions or access to the property. You will be notified of activity so that you can connect and close. Just remember not to negotiate price and let your Sellio™ Listing do the heavy lifting to get the best price.
After I have selected a buyer, how does it work?
Once you select your winning buyer, we connect you with your buyer to start the closing process according to your standard business process. If necessary, Sellio™ can introduce you to qualified escrow officers, title, closing attorney's so you can have the resources you need.
How do I accept an offer?
You will be informed for the offers placed on your Listing and you Reserve the right to select a buyer at any time. Once you are ready to accept an offer, you will inform Sellio™ so you can start the closing process.
What if 2 or more buyers place the same offer?
The offer that is placed first achieves first rights to become the winning buyer, so it is based on priority order. 

This is why it is important for interested buyers to inspect the property and confirm their offer price as quickly as possible within the Listing Period.  Please utliize your Listing Period to drive Urgency to get the best offers first.
How do I know the "Selected Winner" is really going to buy my property?
Sellio™ does not guarantee nor legally enforce buyers to close, but we do require an Offer Hold to participate so they have 'skin in the game'. If buyers do not follow through to close, their Offer Hold becomes a non-refundable charge, incentivizing the buyer close. If a Buyer chooses to lose the Offer Hold and walk away, Sellio™ retains this deposit and splits it 50/50 with the seller. You may choose another buyer or re-list the property.
Can I Negotiate the Sale Price with the Winning Buyer after the Listing Period ends?
This is not recommended to protect the integrity of your sale and keep your buyer engaged in closing. All Due Diligence, inspections, etc should be completed during the Listing Period to minimize negotiating after the Listing Period ends. However, Seller has the option to negotiate with the buyer after the listing has ended, should something unexpected arise. Applicable Sellio™ service fees remain the same regardless of the change in sale price.  
When do we close on the property? (When do I get paid?)
Closing will be based on variables (buyers, sellers, agreement, closing attorney, financing, etc). therefore the timeframe to closing terms are on the property listing. Closings are generally set 2 weeks to 30 days from listing.  This can be modified based on you and your buyer's needs.  Sellio™ does not dictate closing timeframes or terms or offer legal advice.
Does Sellio™ or buyers inspect my home before I sell?
Sellio does not inspect your property, however an interested buyer may be interested in seeing the home prior to the end of the Listing Period.  You will set your property access information and buyers can request a time to view the property.  This will vary based on the listing, seller, and buyer preference.
I have a listing agent, can I still sell my property on Sellio™?
Yes!  We love working with agents. Inform your agent you'd like to sell on Sellio™, you can list your property, and your agent will still earn their commission based on your listing agreement.
