How manageable is it to sell my Waco property without having a broker?
We can buy your Waco property without charging broker commissions.
In order to help you perform your goal of selling your property or home, Glymph Properties will work with a real estate professional 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 a property for your balance, then you’ll need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. Some people can’t afford the costs of getting rid of their property or home. That is 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 to avoiding those bothersome realtor commissions.
Before we get going, there’s one basic real estate norm you have to know about.
In most cases in Texas 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s agent.
Think about it…. how does that make sense?Mull it over, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. In essence, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose money.
Why in the world should you pay for your “opponent” ?
In all honesty, it goes against logic – it’s just what is normally done in most cases.
You can use that to your benefit in several ways.
First, remember to include the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at the comparable sales. If the houses similar to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.
Never under value your property or home – be aware that an informed buyer could possibly expect to have a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to keep that money.
In many instances in Waco, 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 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 choose to consider offering 2.5% to realtors who will bring their clients to see your property or home. Of course, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a far better deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.
On the contrary, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Waco.
Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the real estate agents in Waco use to obtain information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.
At one time, you had to pay a full commission to get your property or home on the MLS. Now in Waco, there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Usually, you spend a few hundred bucks 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 property or home to a very wide audience.
Each of the key real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. acquire data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your house in Waco to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.
Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to boost 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.
Advertising and marketing could be a gamble. At times open houses in Waco can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a complete waste of time. It’s the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and many times they don’t.
To efficiently sell your home all on your own, you have to advertise it well.
Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate a number of calls, and there’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But generally just posting advertisements and having an open house is not enough if your property does not appeal to the ordinary home shopper.
In theory, real estate professionals charge significant commissions because they have to spend a whole lot of money up front to market your home. By promoting lots of houses 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 home has to be just right.
