 How possible is it to sell your College Station home without a real estate professional? - we buy any house

If you’re wishing to get rid of any property or investment property in College Station without using a real estate broker, Glymph Properties can help.

We aim to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with real estate agents, but we will if it’s required.

I mean really…. who wants to give away 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 property for what you owe, then you need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of folks aren’t able to afford to pay to sell their property. That is definitely 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.

 

There are a couple of tricks to avoid paying high commissions on your sale.

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

In most cases in Texas half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s realtor.

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 goes against reason – it’s just what’s commonly done.

You can use that to your advantage in a few ways.

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

 

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

 

Many times in College Station, buyers who aren’t represented by an agent will not 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 consider offering 2.5% to real estate brokers who will bring their clients to see your property. Of course, it is 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.

 

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

 

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the real estate brokers in College Station 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 house on the MLS. Now in College Station, there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay a commission if the sale closes.

Compared to 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 websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your house in College Station 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 house.

 

Advertising is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in College Station can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

To effectively sell your house 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 websites where you can post information. But typically just putting up ads 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 promoting lots of properties at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

 

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