We can easily help if you really want to get rid of a house or investment property in Columbus without an agent.

In an attempt to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with realtors, but we will if need be.

 

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 succeed in selling the property for what’s left on the mortgage, then you’ll need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. Many people , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell their house. That’s a lot of money… especially if you are in an abnormal 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 and science to avoiding those annoying realtor commissions.

First, there’s an irritating custom that you have to hear about.

 

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

Doesn’t make much sense, right?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 lower the sales price of your house.

 

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

In all honesty, it goes against logic – it is just what is normally done.

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

 

First, factor in the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at local comparable sales. If the properties similar 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 realtor, you should expect to keep that money.

In many instances in Columbus , buyers who aren’t represented by a buyers 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 real estate professionals who will bring their clients to show your property or home. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always hammer out a far better deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.

Having said that, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Columbus .

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the real estate agents in Columbus 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 Columbus , 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 bucks and you only pay commission if the sale closes.

 

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

Each of the key real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. acquire data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your house in Columbus 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’ve got 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 Columbus can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they are a complete waste of time. It’s the 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 having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house doesn’t 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 properties at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

 

Selling properties 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.
