 How feasible is it to sell your Tampa house without a realtor? - we buy any house

 

We will buy your Tampa property without charging broker commissions.

Though we do cooperate with brokers, oftentimes we recommend that you avoid paying another person to be in the midst.

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 succeed in selling your house for what’s left on the mortgage, then you need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. Some people , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell a property or home. That’s 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 and science to avoiding those pesky realtor commissions.

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

 

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

Did you get that… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .Give it a second- let it really sink in, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. Simply, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose money.

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

 

Seriously, it goes against reason – it’s just what is traditionally done in most cases.

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

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

 

Be careful, don’t under price your property or home – be aware that an experienced buyer will probably expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one realtor, you could expect to keep that money.

 

Most of the time in Tampa , buyers who are not represented by an 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 want to consider offering 2.5% to realtors who will bring their clients to show your property or home. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

 

On the contrary, 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 Tampa .

 

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the brokers in Tampa use to find 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 or home on the MLS. Now in Tampa , there are a few agents who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if you sale your property.

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

 

Most of the big real estate search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your listing in Tampa to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major online websites within days.

 

Each of these sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to greatly enhance 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 can be a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Tampa can be a good way to sell a house, and from time to time they’re a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time they work, and quite often they don’t.

 

To effectively sell your house without any help, you have to market it well.

Placing fliers and signs around your local community can generate a few calls, and there’s a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But usually just putting up ads and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house doesn’t appeal to the everyday home shopper.

In theory, real estate brokers charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to publicize your house. By marketing lots of properties at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

Selling houses 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.
