 How do I get rid of a residence without the need of a broker in Lexington ? - sell your house fast

 

Glymph Properties will definitely buy your Lexington house without charging realtor commissions.

 

Whilst we do cooperate with agents, many times we endorse that you stay clear of paying someone to be in the midst.

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a property in a commission is a lot 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 pesky realtor commissions.

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

In most cases in Kentucky half 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 is just what’s traditionally done in most cases.

 

You can use that to your advantage in several ways.

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

Be careful, don’t under value your property or home – 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 Lexington, 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 do not want to pay them. Just don’t be surprised if it comes up during the negotiation.

You may consider offering 2.5% to realtors who will bring their clients to see your property. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

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

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate agents in Lexington 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 house on the MLS. Now in Lexington, there are a few brokers who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay a commission if the sale closes.

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your house to a very wide audience.

 

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

Each of these sites sells ads. They have 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.

 

Marketing can be a gamble. At times open houses in Lexington can be a good way to sell a property, and sometimes they’re a complete waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, fancy signs – occasionally they work, and quite often they don’t.

 

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

Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate some calls, and there are a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But usually just posting flyers and hosting an open house is not enough if your property does not appeal to the everyday home buyer.

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

 

Some properties may very well require thousands of dollars in advertising expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
