 How possible is it to sell a St. Louis home without the need of a broker?

We could buy your St. Louis property without charging real estate broker commissions.

 

In order to help you fulfill your end goal of selling your property, we will work with anybody 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 succeed in selling the house for what you owe, then you need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. Many people are not able to afford the costs of selling a 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.

 

There are a few ways to avoid paying high commissions on your sale.

Before we get going, there’s one thing you have to know.

 

In most cases in Missouri half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to 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 property.

 

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

 

Seriously, it goes against reason – it’s just what is traditionally done in most cases.

 

Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.

 

First, take into account the commissions paid when you’re looking at local comparable sales. If the properties comparable to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

 

Be careful, don’t under value your property or home – be aware that an experienced buyer will probably expect to get a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one agent, you could expect to keep that money.

Most of the time in St. Louis , buyers who aren’t 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 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 have real estate professionals bring their clients to see your property or home. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always hammer out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

Now, if you really don’t like the idea of paying for a buyer’s agent and decide not to offer to include it, you will cut your pool of prospective buyers to almost nothing.

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the brokers in St. Louis use to find 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 St. Louis , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay a commission if you sale your home.

 

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your house to a very wide audience.

Most of the big real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your listing in St. Louis to the MLS, information on your property 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 house.

 

Marketing can be a gamble. Sometimes open houses in St. Louis can be a good way to sell property, and many times they’re a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time they work, and quite often they don’t.

To efficiently sell your home without any help, you have to advertise it well.

Placing fliers and signs around your neighborhood can generate some calls, and there’s a lot of free websites where you can post information. But usually just posting flyers and hosting an open house is not enough if your property doesn’t appeal to the everyday home buyer.

 

In theory, real estate professionals charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to promote 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.

 

Selling houses 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.
