Looking to avoid real estate broker commissions and still sell a Killeen property…. Glymph Properties can help!

Eventhough we do cooperate with agents, most times we advise that you try to avoid paying real estate agents to be in the middle.

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 accomplish your goal of selling the house for what you owe, then you will need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. Some people cannot afford to pay to sell a property. That’s definitely a lot 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 several tricks to avoid paying high commissions in your sale.

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

 

In most sales in Killeen, ordinarily half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to pay for the buyer’s broker.

 

Did you get that… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .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.

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

 

In truth, it defies logic – it is just what is commonly done.

 

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.

Please don’t under value your property – 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 keep that money.

 

Many times in Killeen, 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 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 have real estate professionals bring their clients to see your house. Of course, it is 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.

On the flip side, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Killeen.

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the real estate brokers in Killeen 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 Killeen, 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 with 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 Killeen 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’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 property.

Advertising and marketing is really a gamble. At times open houses in Killeen can be a wonderful way to sell property, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, fancy signs – sometimes they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

To successfully sell your home all by yourself, you have to market 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 flyers and having an open house is not enough if your property 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 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 houses.

 

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 home has to be just right.
