If you happen to be looking to get rid of any house or investment property in Colorado Springs without using a broker, Glymph Properties can help.

 

We aim to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with agents, but we will if need be.

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 your balance, then you’ll need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. Many people can’t afford the costs of selling their property or home. That’s a lot of money… especially if you are in an abnormal 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 annoying realtor commissions.

First, there is an irritating custom that you have to hear about.

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

 

Think about it…. how does that make sense?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 cash.

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

In truth, it contradicts logic – it is just what is commonly done in most cases.

 

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

 

First, factor in 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.

Please don’t under price your house – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one realtor, you could expect to keep that money.

 

Many times in Colorado Springs , buyers who are not represented by an agent won’t 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 see your property. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

 

On the other hand, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Colorado Springs .

 

– that is of transactions take place through the MLS – that’s the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Colorado Springs 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 Colorado Springs , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay a commission if you sale your home.

 

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way 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 Colorado Springs 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 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 house.

 

Marketing is really a gamble. At times open houses in Colorado Springs can be a wonderful way to sell property, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – occasionally they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

To effectively sell your property all by yourself, you have to advertise 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 putting up ads and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house does not appeal to the standard home buyer.

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 houses at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

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