Glymph Properties could buy your Toledo house without charging broker commissions.

Despite the fact that we do cooperate with brokers, often times we suggest that you steer clear of paying real estate agents to be in the midst.

 

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a house in a commission is a great deal of money. In certain situations, brokers and real estate agents can be very useful and earn their commission. Not always.

 

The art and science to avoiding those annoying realtor commissions.

First, there’s a tricky custom that you have to hear about.

 

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

 

Think about it…. how does that make sense?Give it a second- let it really sink in, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. Simply, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lower the sales price of your house.

Why in the world would you pay for your “opponent” ?

 

Seriously, it defies reason – it is just what is traditionally done.

 

You can use that to your benefit in a number of ways.

First, factor in the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at local comparable sales. If the properties similar to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

Be careful, don’t under value your house – be aware that an experienced buyer will probably expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one realtor, you can expect to save that money.

 

Most of the time in Toledo , 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 don’t 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 real estate professionals who will bring their clients to see your house. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always work out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.

Now, if you really don’t like the idea of paying the buyer’s agent fee and decide not to offer to pay it, you are going to 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 agents in Toledo use to find 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 Toledo , there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, 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 house to a very wide audience.

 

Most of the big real estate search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your property in Toledo to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major online websites within days.

 

Each of these sites sells ads. They have packages that let you pay to greatly enhance 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 can be a gamble. At times open houses in Toledo can be a good way to sell a house, and from time to time they are a complete waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – occasionally they work, and quite often they don’t.

To successfully sell your property without any help, you have to market it well.

Placing fliers and signs around your community can generate a handful of calls, and there are a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But usually just putting up flyers and hosting an open house is not enough if your property does not appeal to the everyday home purchaser.

 

In theory, real estate agents charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to promote your home. By promoting lots of houses at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

 

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