Needing to avoid real estate broker commissions and still sell that Edinburg house…. Glymph Properties can help!

 

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

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

There are several ways to avoid paying high commissions in a sale.

First, there’s an irritating custom that you have to know about.

 

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

 

Doesn’t make much sense, right?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 lower the sales price of your property.

 

Why should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?

 

In truth, it goes against reason – it’s just what is commonly done.

 

You can use that to your advantage in several ways.

 

First, remember to consider the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at the comparable sales. If the houses comparable 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’re doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to save that money.

 

Many times in Edinburg, 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 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 have real estate agents bring their clients to walk your house. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

 

Having said that, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Edinburg.

 

, of transactions occur through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Edinburg 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 Edinburg, there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay commission if the sale closes.

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your home to a very wide audience.

 

Many of the important real estate search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your listing in Edinburg to the MLS, information on your house will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.

 

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got 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. Sometimes open houses in Edinburg can be a wonderful way to sell a property, and many times they are a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – sometimes they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

 

To successfully sell your home 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 are a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But typically just putting up advertisements and having 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 calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

Selling properties 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 property has to be just right.
