In order to help you achieve your goal of selling your property, we will work with a real estate professional to get the job done for you.
After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a house in a commission is a ton 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 annoying realtor commissions.
First, there’s a tricky custom that you have to know about.
In most sales in Indianapolis , usually half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to pay for the buyer’s broker.
Did that little tid-bit register… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .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 lose cash.
How in the world does it make sense for you to do that?
In truth, it goes against reason – it is just what’s commonly done in most cases.
Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.
First, factor in the commissions paid when you’re 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 price your house – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to keep that money.
Many times in Indianapolis , 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 consider offering 2.5% to have brokers bring their clients to walk your property or home. Of course, it is a lot of money. If you are 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 realtor’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Indianapolis .
Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Indianapolis 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 on the MLS. Now in Indianapolis , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a flat 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 house.
Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your home to the largest 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 Indianapolis 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 these sites sells ads. They have 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.
Advertising and marketing is really a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Indianapolis can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they’re a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – sometimes they work, and oftentimes they don’t.
To efficiently sell your property all by yourself, you have to market it well.
Taping fliers and signs around your local community can generate a handful of calls, and there are a lot of free websites where you can post information. But typically just posting ads and hosting an open house is not enough if your property does not appeal to the standard home shopper.
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 marketing lots of houses at once, they expect to get more 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.
