We will be able to help if you need to get rid of a residence or investment property in Santa Ana without a realtor.

 

In an attempt to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with agents, 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 house for your balance, then you’ll need to write a check for 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 a property. That is 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.

 

The art to avoiding those annoying realtor commissions.

Before we get going, there’s one thing you have to know.

 

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

 

Think about it…. how much sense does that make?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 lower the sales price of your property.

 

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

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

You can use that to your advantage in a number of ways.

First, factor in the commissions paid when you are looking at local comparable sales. If the properties comparable to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

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

 

Many times in Santa Ana , buyers who aren’t represented by an agent will not 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 have realtors bring their clients to see your property. Sure, 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 contrary, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Santa Ana .

, of transactions take place through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate brokers in Santa Ana 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 Santa Ana , 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 with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your home to a very wide 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 Santa Ana to the MLS, information on your house will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.

Each of these 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 Santa Ana can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. It is 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 successfully 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 posting flyers and having an open house is not enough if your house doesn’t 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 home. By advertising lots of properties at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

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.
