How plausible is it to sell my Chandler house without a broker?
Glymph Properties can easily help if you really need to sell a home or investment property in Chandler without an agent.
In order to help you perform your target of selling your property or home, Glymph Properties will work with a realtor to get the job done for you.
After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a property in a commission is a whole lot of money. In certain situations, brokers and real estate agents can be very useful and earn their commission. Not always.
The art to avoiding those pesky realtor commissions.
Before we get going, there’s one basic real estate norm you have to know about.
In most house sales in Chandler , ordinarily 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 .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 should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?
In truth, it goes against reason – it is just what is commonly done in most cases.
Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.
First, remember to consider the commissions paid when you’re looking at local comparable sales. If the houses comparable to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.
Please don’t under price your house – 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 Chandler , 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 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 realtors who will bring their clients to show your property. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your house including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.
Having said that, 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 Chandler .
Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Chandler 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 or home on the MLS. Now in Chandler , 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 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 home to the largest audience.
Many of the important real estate websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your property in Chandler to the MLS, information on your house will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.
Each of these 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.
Advertising and marketing is really a gamble. At times open houses in Chandler can be a wonderful way to sell a property, and many times they are 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 successfully 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’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But typically just posting flyers and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property does not 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 home. 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 houses.
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.
