 I really, really don't want to hire a real estate agent... Can I still get rid of a San Bernardino house?

 

If you happen to be looking to get rid of your own property or investment property in San Bernardino without using a real estate broker, Glymph Properties can help.

 

Though we do cooperate with real estate agents, typically we strongly recommend that you stay clear of paying anyone to be in the middle.

 

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a house in a commission is a lot 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 bothersome realtor commissions.

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

 

In most cases in California half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s realtor.

 

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 house.

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

 

In truth, it defies reason – it is just what is commonly done in most cases.

 

You can use that to your benefit in several ways.

First, take into account the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at local comparable sales. If the houses 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 are doing the work of one agent, you can expect to save that money.

Many times in San Bernardino , buyers who are not represented by an agent will not 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 consider offering 2.5% to real estate professionals who will bring their clients to show your property. 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.

On the contrary, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in San Bernardino .

 

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

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways 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 listing in San Bernardino to the MLS, information on your property or home 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 property.

Marketing is really a gamble. Sometimes open houses in San Bernardino can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they are a waste of time. It’s the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time 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 posting advertisements and having an open house is not enough if your house does not appeal to the standard home purchaser.

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 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 house has to be just right.
