Looking to avoid real estate broker commissions and still sell a Denver property…. Glymph Properties can help!

In order to help you achieve your objective of getting rid of your property, Glymph Properties will work with anyone to get the job done for you.

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 accomplish your goal of selling your property for your balance, then you need to come out of pocket with 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 their property or home. 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 to avoiding those pesky realtor commissions.

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

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

Did that little tid-bit register… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .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.

 

How in the world does it make sense for you to do that?

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

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

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

Please don’t under value 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 should expect to save that money.

 

Many times in Denver , buyers who aren’t represented by a buyers 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 real estate professionals who will bring their clients to see your house. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you’re 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 the buyer’s agent fee and decide not to offer to include it, you may cut your pool of prospective buyers to just about 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 Denver 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 Denver , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if you sale your home.

 

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your home to a very wide 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 property in Denver to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.

 

Each of those sites sells ads. They have 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.

Advertising and marketing is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Denver can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they’re a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – sometimes they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

To effectively sell your house 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 web-sites where you can post information. But typically just putting up advertisements and hosting an open house is not enough if your house doesn’t appeal to the standard home purchaser.

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 properties.

 

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