We may help if you have to sell your residence or investment property in Missouri City without a real estate agent.

Glymph Properties aims to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with agents, but we will if it’s required.

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 house for your balance, then you will need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people cannot afford to pay to sell a property. That’s a ton of money… especially if you are in an abnormal 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 few ways to avoid paying high commissions on a sale.

Before we get going, there’s one basic real estate custom you have to know about.

 

In most cases in Texas 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to the buyer’s broker.

 

Doesn’t make much sense, right?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 in the world should you pay for your “opponent” ?

In truth, it contradicts reason – it is just what’s commonly done.

Here are a few ways you can use that to your advantage.

 

First, factor in the commissions paid when you’re 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 price 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 could expect to keep that money.

 

Many times in Missouri City, 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 don’t 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 check out your house. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

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 are going to cut your pool of prospective buyers to next to nothing.

 

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Missouri City 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 Missouri City, there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred dollars 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 home to the largest audience.

 

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

 

Each of those 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 property.

 

Marketing is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Missouri City can be a wonderful way to sell property, and many times they’re a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, 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 advertise it well.

Taping fliers and signs around your local community can generate a handful of calls, and there are a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But typically just posting ads and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property doesn’t appeal to the standard home shopper.

 

In theory, real estate brokers charge sizeable commissions because they have to spend a good deal of money up front to publicize your property. By marketing lots of properties at once, they expect to get more 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.
