We will definitely buy your Galveston house without charging real estate broker commissions.

 

Though we do cooperate with brokers, typically it’s best to stay clear of paying anyone to be in the midst.

I mean really…. who wants to give away 5-6%. That’s 5-6% of the sales price as well, not 5-6% of any money you make. So… if you succeed in selling your house for what you owe, then you need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell their property. That’s definitely 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.

 

The art to avoiding those annoying realtor commissions.

First, there is a tricky custom that you’ve gotta hear about.

In most cases in Texas half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to the buyer’s real estate broker.

Doesn’t make much sense, right?Let it sink in, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. Basically, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose money.

 

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

In truth, it goes against reason – it is just what is commonly done.

 

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

 

First, remember to include 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.

Please don’t under value your property or home – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one agent, you can expect to keep that money.

 

Many times in Galveston, buyers who aren’t represented by an agent won’t remember to negotiate the buyer’s side commission out of the price for themselves, so don’t 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 is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

 

On the other hand, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Galveston.

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Galveston use to gain access to information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.

 

In the past, you had to pay a full commission to get your property on the MLS. Now in Galveston, there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if the sale closes.

 

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

 

Many of the important real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your property in Galveston to the MLS, information on your property will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to enrich 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 is really a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Galveston can be a wonderful way to sell a property, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – sometimes they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

 

To effectively sell your home all by yourself, you have to market it well.

Taping fliers and signs around your local community can generate a handful of calls, and there’s a lot of free websites where you can post information. But typically just putting up ads and having an open house is not enough if your house doesn’t appeal to the standard home shopper.

In theory, real estate brokers charge sizeable commissions because they have to spend a good deal of money up front to publicize your property. By marketing lots of properties at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

 

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.
