 I really, really do not want to hire a real estate professional... Is it still doable to get rid of your Boston home?

 

We may help if you really want to sell a house or investment property in Boston without a real estate agent.

 

In order to help you realize your objective of getting rid of your property or home, 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 your house for what’s left on the mortgage, then you will need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of folks , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell their house. That’s 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.

The art and science to avoiding those pesky realtor commissions.

First, there’s a tricky custom that you’ve gotta know about.

 

In most real estate transactions in Boston , usually half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to pay for 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 lose money.

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

Seriously, it contradicts reason – it is just what is traditionally 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 the comparable sales. If the properties similar to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

 

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

Most of the time in Boston , buyers who are not represented by an agent won’t remember to negotiate the buyer’s side commission out of the price for themselves, so don’t remind them if you don’t want to pay them. Just don’t be surprised if it comes up during the negotiation.

 

You may want to consider offering 2.5% to real estate brokers who will bring their clients to see your property or home. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.

Conversely, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Boston .

, of transactions take place through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate brokers in Boston use to find 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 or home on the MLS. Now in Boston , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if the sale closes.

 

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your home to the largest audience.

Most of the big real estate search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your property in Boston to the MLS, information on your house will end up on most of the major online websites within days.

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got 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.

Advertising can be a gamble. At times open houses in Boston can be a good way to sell a house, and many times they’re a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – sometimes they work, and quite often they don’t.

To effectively sell your property without any help, you have to market it well.

Putting fliers and signs around your local community can generate some calls, and there’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But usually just posting flyers and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property does not appeal to the everyday home shopper.

 

In theory, realtors charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to market your property. By marketing lots of houses at once, they expect to get more phone 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.
