A Brief History of Minority Business Enterprise

The history of minority business enterprises and their development goes all the way back to 1969 with an Executive Order signed by President Nixon. This Executive Order created the Office of Minority Business Enterprise and the Advisory Council for Minority Business Enterprise. In the inaugural year of the program, these agencies partnered with the Census Bureau to survey Minority-Owned Business Enterprises across the U.S.. Sparked by the first Executive Order, numerous Executive Orders followed that expanded and developed the Minority Business Enterprise program and the supporting organizations. Today, the Minority Business Enterprise Program is led by the Minority Business Development Agency. Additionally, minority owned companies must now go through a thorough certification process to operate under the title of MBE and participate in the resulting benefits. Additionally, the MBDA and Census Bureau continue to partner in studying the development of minority-owned businesses. A recent study by the MBDA and the U.S. Census Bureau was performed in 2010.

Note: Due to the increasing cost of independent certification for a MBE startup, up to $2500.00 or more, we (along with numerous other companies) now provide completely free and thorough in-house vetting and certification of all MBE Candidate Companies as a part of participation in our Express Auctioneers Preferred Reseller Program. Normally certification for state programs are free.  Affidavits of certification are available upon request.

Press Release Double Your Net

Real Estate Company Offers Double Your Net – Or More For Each Deal Using Their World Renowned Programs

PRLogDec. 19, 2014SEVERNA PARK, Md.Our renowned programs allow Real Estate Agents to make double their net or more on each deal. Bottom line.” stated Dennis Buettner, marketing director for world renowned Express Auctioneers. “On a 300k traditional real estate deal, 6% listing agents will net $7,500.00 after marketing and advertising costs. On the same deal using The Express Auction Method (TEAM), the listing stays at the brokerage and agent will net $15,000.00 (double) after expenses. With The Express Auction Method, there are no marketing and advertising costs to the agent. The listing is sold in 30 days, “as-is” with no fix-ups, price reductions or closing costs. On a 300k traditional real estate deal, 5% listing agents will net $6,000.00 after marketing and advertising costs. On the same deal using The Express Auction Method, the listing stays at the brokerage and agent will net $15,000.00 (actually 2 ½ times their net) after expenses.

“According to a study done by the National Association of REALTORS®, the future of the real estate auction  business may be heading toward one in every three properties being sold or influenced using an auction listing. If that’s the case, any brokers looking for new opportunities to generate additional revenues, might want to consider opening an auction division.” – Robert Albanese, World Famous Real Estate Strategist
 
“Our renowned Swanepoel Real Estate Innovator company (see below) is the first and only real estate technology and marketing company to designate Real Estate Agents for free as Real Estate Auction Agents (REAA) and emplace no cost, no fee Express Auction Divisions in real estate offices on the east coast and soon across the country. We are the only company in the country to provide double your net – or more auction services that keep the listing in the brokerage’s name.” said Buettner. “We are also the first and only real estate company to provide an absolutely free; no cost professional real estate designation as Real Estate Auction Agent. There is no cost and will never be a cost for the professional designation and all future continuing education. All of our free training is provided online and in person at our headquarters or the brokerage.”

         By training Real Estate Agents (for free) as Professional Real Estate Auction Agents (REAA) and emplacing our free in-office Express Auction programs in a growing number of regional real estate offices, Real Estate Agents can now have a ‘Plan B’ marketing and sales program. We are proud to say that we are signing on new Real Estate Brokerages as quickly as we can get the affiliate agreements out. Now, Real Estate Agents are able to handle “Real Estate Emergencies” utilizing The Express Auction Method as a ‘Plan B’ option to the traditional sale. This allows the Real Estate Agents to continually work with their seller during The Express Auction Method. Our Real Estate Agents, professionally designated (for free) as Real Estate Auction Agents never have to give away their lifelong seller and their trust to an unaffiliated auction company. They walk; hand in hand with their trusted seller through our programs, keeping the listing credit and fee. We proudly provide a 50/50 split of the negotiated commission; doubling their net – or more. There is no other company in the country that does this.

Agent Marketing & Costs

These two posts are from 2008 and 2010. They are a good example of “Agent Marketing & Costs” from our “double your net” graphic on our home and Agent pages. We kept our example purposely median. It cannot take into account every single cost, but we have asked numerous agents and the price is mid-stream and reasonable. The cost for print advertising has skyrocketed in the last 3-4 years. We make ZERO off of our Express Auction seller marketing investment. This is the money that our seller pays for marketing and advertising their individual property. (Depending on the DMA, a seller marketing investment example ranges from about $2500 for Baltimore and $3500 for Washington DC/Northern Virginia and about $3500 for northern New Jersey and NYC and Los Angeles. This is for listings from 100k – 600k. Above 600k we normally accept 1.5%. Quad sale investor marketing ranges from $595 – $795 per property when utilizing an ExpressAuction Quad Sale detailed HERE.) We even provide a detailed report upon request. There are no more wholesale advertising costs even for long term customers. Link to original content HERE. Link to closing cost calculator HERE.

Staging costs from HERE and HERE. Of course your costs and fees could be a lot more or a lot less:

Consider this: The average professional home staging costs between three and five thousand dollars. Professionally staged homes sell in an average of 35 days (compared to 175 days for non-staged homes), according to StagedHomes.com. Most homeowners who are selling their home reduce the price of their home after about a month on the market, and the first price reduction is on the order of ten percent. So on a $200,000 home, the first price reduction is $20,000. If the home had been professionally staged for five thousand dollars and sold within its first month on the market, the homeowner would have been $15,000 in the black. Certainly a good return on investment!
