I really, really don't want to hire a real estate agent... Is it still feasible to get rid of my own Conroe property?-sell your house fast

 

We could buy your Conroe home without charging real estate agent commissions.

 

We aim to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with brokers, but we will if it’s required.

 

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 your balance, then you’ll need to come out of pocket with 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 their property. That is 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.

The art and science to avoiding those bothersome realtor commissions.

First, there is an irritating custom that you’ve gotta hear about.

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

Think about it…. how does that make sense?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 in the world should you pay for your “opponent” ?

 

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

 

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

First, remember to consider the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at local comparable sales. If the properties similar 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 can expect to save that money.

 

Many times in Conroe, buyers who aren’t 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 have real estate agents bring their clients to walk your property. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

On the contrary, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Conroe.

 

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Conroe 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 house on the MLS. Now in Conroe, there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay a commission if you sale your home.

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

 

Many of the important real estate search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your listing in Conroe 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 house.

Marketing is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Conroe can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they are a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, fancy signs – occasionally they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

 

To successfully sell your house 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 putting up ads and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house doesn’t 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 home. By promoting lots of properties at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

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 property has to be just right.
