In order to help you achieve your end goal of selling your property or home, we will work with a real estate professional to get the job done for you.
After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a house in a commission is a ton of money. In certain situations, brokers and real estate agents can be very useful and earn their commission. Not always.
There are a couple of tricks to avoid paying high commissions on a sale.
First, there’s an irritating custom that you’ve gotta hear about.
In most cases in Indiana 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to the buyer’s real estate broker.
Think about it…. how does that make sense?Mull it over, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. In essence, 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?
In all honesty, it goes against logic – it is just what is normally done.
Here are a few ways you can use that to your advantage.
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.
Never under value your property or home – be aware that an informed buyer could possibly expect to have a discount too. If you are doing the work of one agent, you should expect to keep that money.
In many instances in Indianapolis , buyers who are not represented by an agent will not remember to negotiate the buyer’s side commission out of the price for themselves, so don’t 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 real estate professionals who will bring their clients to see your property or home. Of course, it is a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a far better deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.
Conversely, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Indianapolis .
Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate agents in Indianapolis use to obtain 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 Indianapolis , there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Usually, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay a commission if you sale your property.
Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your property or home to the largest audience.
Each of the key real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. acquire data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your house in Indianapolis to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.
Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to boost 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 could be a gamble. At times open houses in Indianapolis can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a complete waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and many times they don’t.
To efficiently sell your home all on your own, you have to market it well.
Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate a number of calls, and there are a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But generally just posting advertisements and hosting an open house is not enough if your house does not appeal to the ordinary home shopper.
In theory, real estate professionals charge significant commissions because they have to spend a whole lot of money up front to market 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 properties.
Certain properties can require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
