Needing to avoid real estate agent commissions and still sell that Cleveland house…. Glymph Properties can help!

Eventhough we do cooperate with real estate agents, in many instances it’s best to refrain from paying real estate brokers to be in the middle.

 

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a house in a commission is a ton of money. In certain situations, brokers and real estate agents can be very useful and earn their commission. Not always.

The art and science to avoiding those annoying realtor commissions.

Before we get going, there’s one basic real estate norm you have to know about.

In most cases in Ohio 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s real estate professional.

Doesn’t make much sense, right?Give it a second- let it really sink in, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. Simply, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose money.

 

Why should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?

Seriously, it goes against reason – it’s just what is traditionally done in most cases.

Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.

First, take into account the commissions paid when you are looking at local comparable sales. If the properties similar to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

Be careful, don’t under value your house – be aware that an experienced buyer will probably expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one agent, you can expect to keep that money.

 

Most of the time in Cleveland , buyers who are not represented by a buyers agent won’t remember to negotiate the buyer’s side commission out of the price for themselves, so don’t remind them if you don’t want to pay them. Just don’t be surprised if it comes up during the negotiation.

You may choose to consider offering 2.5% to have real estate professionals bring their clients to walk your house. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always work out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a real estate agent.

 

Now, if you really don’t like the idea of paying for a buyer’s agent and decide not to offer to pay it, you are going to cut your pool of prospective buyers to next to nothing.

, of transactions occur through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the agents in Cleveland use to find information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.

 

Not so long ago, you had to pay a full commission to get your property on the MLS. Now in Cleveland , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay commission if you sale your property.

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your property to the largest audience.

Most of the big real estate websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are good that when you submit your listing in Cleveland to the MLS, information on your property will end up on most of the major online websites within days.

 

Each of these sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to greatly enhance your listing, feature it at the top of the search, and a lot of other bells and whistles that might or might not get an interested buyer to buy your house.

Advertising and marketing can be a gamble. At times open houses in Cleveland can be a good way to sell property, and sometimes they are a waste of time. It’s the exact same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, fancy signs – from time to time they work, and quite often they don’t.

 

To effectively sell your house without any help, you have to advertise it well.

Positioning fliers and signs around your community can generate a number of calls, and there’s a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But usually just posting flyers and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property doesn’t appeal to the everyday home buyer.

In theory, realtors charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to publicize your property. By promoting lots of properties at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

Certain properties might possibly require thousands of dollars in advertising expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
