 How do I get rid of my house without having an agent in Honolulu ?

 

We could certainly help if you have to sell a home or investment property in Honolulu without a broker.

 

Our primary goal is to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with brokers, but we will if it’s required.

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

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

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

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

 

Did that little tid-bit register… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .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 lower the sales price of your house.

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

 

Seriously, it defies logic – it is just what is traditionally done.

 

Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.

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

 

Be careful, don’t under price your property – 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 Honolulu , buyers who are not represented by an agent won’t 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 consider offering 2.5% to have brokers bring their clients to see your property. Of course, it is a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always negotiate a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without an agent.

 

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’ll cut your pool of prospective buyers to virtually nothing.

, of transactions take place through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate brokers in Honolulu 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 or home on the MLS. Now in Honolulu , there are a few brokers who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if you sale your house.

 

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your home to a very wide audience.

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

 

Each of those 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. Sometimes open houses in Honolulu can be a good way to sell a property, and sometimes they’re a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and quite often they don’t.

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

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

 

In theory, real estate brokers charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to market your house. 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 properties.

Selling houses is a numbers game. You have to go through a certain number of no’s before the right buyer comes by and you get a yes. Think Goldilocks… Your buyer is Goldilocks and your house has to be just right.
