 I really, really do not want to pay a realtor... Can I still sell our Wichita house?

We may help if you really need to get rid of your residence or investment property in Wichita without a realtor.

 

Our primary goal is to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with real estate agents, but we will if need be.

 

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

 

The art to avoiding those pesky realtor commissions.

Before we get going, there’s one basic real estate custom you have to know about.

In most real estate transactions in Wichita , usually 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?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.

 

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

 

In all honesty, it goes against reason – it’s just what is normally done.

 

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

 

First, factor in the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at the comparable sales. If the properties comparable to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

 

Never under price 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 realtor, you should expect to save that money.

In many instances in Wichita , 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 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 choose to consider offering 2.5% to real estate brokers who will bring their clients to show your property or home. Of course, it’s 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.

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 are likely to cut your pool of prospective buyers to virtually nothing.

 

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate agents in Wichita 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 Wichita , 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 dollars and you only pay commission if you sale your house.

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your property or home to a very wide 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 Wichita to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.

 

Each of these sites sells ads. They have 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 house.

Advertising and marketing could be a gamble. At times open houses in Wichita can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a complete waste of time. 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 advertise it well.

Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate a number of calls, and there’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But generally just putting up advertisements and having an open house is not enough if your house doesn’t 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 houses at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

Selling houses 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 house has to be just right.
