 How easy is it to get rid of my own Sacramento property without a real estate professional?

 

Looking to avoid real estate broker commissions and still sell your Sacramento property…. Glymph Properties can help!

 

Even though we do cooperate with brokers, typically we encourage that you try to avoid paying another person to be in the middle.

 

I mean really…. who wants to give up 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 property for what is left on the mortgage, then you will need to write a check for 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 a property or home. That is definitely a lot of money… especially if you are in an unusual 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 pesky realtor commissions.

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

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

 

Think about it…. how does that make sense?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 property.

 

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

 

In all honesty, it goes against reason – it’s just what’s 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 the 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 are doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to keep that money.

 

In many instances in Sacramento , buyers who aren’t represented by a buyers agent won’t 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 choose to consider offering 2.5% to have realtors bring their clients to walk your property or home. Sure, 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.

 

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.

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate agents in Sacramento 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 Sacramento , 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 a 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 the largest 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 Sacramento 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 house.

Advertising and marketing could be a gamble. At times open houses in Sacramento can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, 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 advertise 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 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 phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

 

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