 How feasible is it to get rid of a Atlanta property without a real estate agent?

We can certainly help if you really have to sell a residence or investment property in Atlanta without a broker.

In order to help you perform your target of getting rid of your property or home, Glymph Properties will work with a realtor to get the job done for you.

 

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 accomplish your goal of selling the house for what is left on the mortgage, then you will need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people aren’t able to afford the costs of selling their property. That’s a ton 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.

There are a number of tricks 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 Georgia 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s real estate broker.

 

Think about it…. how does that make sense?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 should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?

 

In truth, it goes against logic – it’s just what’s commonly done in most cases.

You can use that to your advantage in a few ways.

 

First, take into account the commissions paid when you happen to be 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 – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you are doing the work of one agent, you should expect to save that money.

 

Many times in Atlanta , 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 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 have agents bring their clients to see your house. 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.

Having said that, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Atlanta .

90 % of transactions occur through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Atlanta 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 Atlanta , 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 you sale your house.

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

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

Each of these sites sells ads. They have 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 property.

 

Marketing is really a gamble. At times open houses in Atlanta can be a wonderful way to sell a property, and many times they are a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – from time to time they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

To effectively sell your property 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 are 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 does not appeal to the standard home buyer.

In theory, real estate brokers charge sizeable commissions because they have to spend a good deal of money up front to publicize your house. By marketing lots of houses 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 home has to be just right.
