I really, really do not want to use a real estate agent... Can I still get rid of my Indianapolis home?

 

We could possibly help if you need to get rid of your home or investment property in Indianapolis without a broker.

In order to help you accomplish your target of selling your property or home, Glymph Properties will work with anyone to get the job done for you.

 

I mean really…. who wants to give away 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 property for what’s left on the mortgage, then you need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. Some people , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell a property or home. That’s definitely a lot of money… especially if you are in an abnormal 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 a number of ways to avoid paying high commissions in your sale.

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

 

In most sales in Indianapolis , roughly 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 cash.

 

How in the world does it make sense for you to do that?

Seriously, it contradicts reason – it is just what is traditionally done.

 

Here are a few ways you can use that to your advantage.

 

First, take into account the commissions paid when you are looking at local comparable sales. If the properties comparable 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 agent, you can expect to keep that money.

 

Most of the time in Indianapolis , 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 want to consider offering 2.5% to have brokers bring their clients to see your property or home. Of course, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

 

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 can expect to cut your pool of prospective buyers to virtually nothing.

 

– that is of transactions occur through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate agents in Indianapolis use to find 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 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. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay a 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.

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

 

Each of those sites sells ads. They have 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 property.

 

Marketing can be a gamble. At times open houses in Indianapolis can be a good way to sell a house, and many times they’re a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time they work, and quite often they don’t.

 

To effectively sell your house without any help, you have to advertise it well.

Putting fliers and signs around your community can generate a handful of calls, and there’s a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But usually just putting up flyers and having an open house is not enough if your property does not appeal to the everyday home buyer.

In theory, realtors charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to advertise your house. By advertising lots of houses at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

Some properties will probably require thousands of dollars in advertising expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.

If you want to avoid paying any kind of commissions, you can also sell your house to investors like us for CASH.
