After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a house 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.
First, there is a tricky custom that you’ve gotta hear about.
In most cases in Nebraska half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to the buyer’s agent.
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 lose money.
Why should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?
In all honesty, it goes against reason – it is just what is normally done in most cases.
You can use that to your benefit in a number of ways.
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 price 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 Lincoln , 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 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 choose to consider offering 2.5% to have real estate agents bring their clients to see your property or home. Of course, it is 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 virtually nothing.
Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the real estate agents in Lincoln 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 Lincoln , 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 a commission if you sale your house.
Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways 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 Lincoln to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.
Each of these 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 Lincoln can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a waste of time. It’s the 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 putting up advertisements and hosting 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 properties.
Certain properties will probably require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
