 How manageable is it to sell my home without a broker?

We may help if you really need to sell your house or investment property in without a broker.

While we do cooperate with brokers, in many instances it is best to avoid paying real estate agents to be in the midst.

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 what you owe, then you need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people can not afford the costs of getting rid of their property. That is a ton of money… especially if you are in an irregular 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 basic real estate custom you have to know about.

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

Did that little tid-bit register… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .Think it over, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. Essentially, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose cash.

Why should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?

Honestly, it contradicts reason – it is just what is usually done in most cases.

Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.

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

Do not under value your house – be aware that a knowledgeable buyer may possibly expect to get a discount too. If you are doing the work of one realtor, you could expect to keep that money.

Generally in , buyers who are not 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 might want to consider offering 2.5% to realtors who will bring their clients to see your house. Of course, it is a lot of money. If you are pricing your house including that commission, you can always work out a much better deal for a purchaser who comes without a real estate agent.

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 .

– that is of transactions happen through the MLS – that’s the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the agents in use to get information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.

Not so long ago, you had to pay a full commission to get your house on the MLS. Now in , there are a few agents who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Frequently, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay a commission if you sale your home.

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

Every one of the significant real estate websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. obtain data from the MLS. Chances are good that when you submit your property in to the MLS, information on your house will end up on most of the major websites within a couple of days.

Each of these sites sells ads. They have packages that let you pay to improve 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.

Marketing may be a gamble. Occasionally open houses in can be a fantastic way to sell a house, and at times they are a complete 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 at times they don’t.

To successfully sell your house by yourself, you have to advertise it well.

Placing fliers and signs around your community can generate a few calls, and there are a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But frequently just posting ads and hosting an open house is not enough if your property does not appeal to the typical home purchaser.

In theory, realtors charge large commissions because they have to spend a great deal of money up front to promote 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 properties.

Some properties may require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
