 How do I get rid of a house without the need of an agent in Minneapolis ?


Glymph Properties can help if you want to get rid of a home or investment property in Minneapolis without a broker.


Glymph Properties aims to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with real estate brokers, but we will if it’s required.

I mean really…. who wants to pay 5-6%. That’s 5-6% of the sales price as well, not 5-6% of any money you make. So… if you accomplish your goal of selling the house for what’s left on the mortgage, then you’ll need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. Many people aren’t able to afford to pay to get rid of their house. That’s a ton of money… especially if you are in an irregular financial situation like “hey I just don’t want to pay to sell my house” or divorce, or bankruptcy, or foreclosure, or just money being tight because of taxes, tenant, or property expenses.

There are a couple of ways to avoid paying high commissions in a sale.

Before we get going, there’s one thing you have to know.

In most sales in Minneapolis , generally half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to pay for the buyer’s broker.


Did you get that… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .Mull it over, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. In essence, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose money.


Why in the world should you pay for your “opponent” ?


In all honesty, it goes against logic – it’s just what is normally done in most cases.

Here are a few ways you can use that to your advantage.

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


Never under value your property or home – be aware that an informed buyer could possibly expect to have a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one agent, you should expect to save that money.

In many instances in Minneapolis , buyers who aren’t represented by an agent will not remember to negotiate the buyer’s side commission out of the price for themselves, so do not 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 realtors bring their clients to walk your property or home. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a far better deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.


Now, if you really don’t like the idea of paying for a buyer’s agent and decide not to offer to include it, you may cut your pool of prospective buyers to just about nothing.

90 % of transactions occur through the MLS – that’s the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate agents in Minneapolis use to obtain information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.


At one time, you had to pay a full commission to get your property or home on the MLS. Now in Minneapolis , there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Usually, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if you sale your home.

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your property or home to the largest audience.

Each of the key real estate web sites like, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. acquire data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your house in Minneapolis to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.


Each of those sites sells ads. They have packages that let you pay to boost 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 property.


Advertising and marketing could be a gamble. At times open houses in Minneapolis can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and many times they don’t.

To efficiently sell your home all on your own, you have to market it well.

Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate a number of calls, and there’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But generally just posting advertisements and hosting an open house is not enough if your house does not appeal to the ordinary home shopper.

In theory, real estate professionals charge significant commissions because they have to spend a whole lot of money up front to market your home. By promoting lots of houses at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

Certain properties would probably require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
