 I really, really don't want to pay a real estate professional... Can I still get rid of my own Irvine home?

Looking to avoid realtor commissions and still sell a Irvine house…. we can help!

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

 

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 succeed in selling a house for your balance, then you need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of folks are unable to afford the costs of selling their property or home. That’s 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.

 

The art and science to avoiding those pesky realtor commissions.

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

In most cases in California 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to the buyer’s broker.

 

Doesn’t make much sense, right?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 lower the sales price of your house.

 

Why in the world would you pay for your “opponent” ?

 

Seriously, it defies reason – it is just what is traditionally done in most cases.

You can use that to your benefit in a number of ways.

 

First, take into account 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.

Be careful, don’t under value your house – be aware that an experienced buyer will probably expect to take a discount too. If you are doing the work of one realtor, you can expect to save that money.

 

Most of the time in Irvine , buyers who aren’t represented by a buyers agent will not 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 consider offering 2.5% to buyer’s agents who will bring their clients to see your property or home. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without an agent.

On the flip side, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Irvine .

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate agents in Irvine use to find information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.

 

Once upon a time, you had to pay a full commission to get your house on the MLS. Now in Irvine , there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay commission if the sale closes.

 

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

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

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got 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. Sometimes open houses in Irvine can be a good way to sell property, and from time to time they are a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – sometimes they work, and quite often they don’t.

To effectively sell your property without any help, you have to market it well.

Taping fliers and signs around your local community can generate a number of calls, and there’s a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But usually just putting up flyers and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property does not appeal to the everyday home purchaser.

 

In theory, real estate agents charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to publicize your house. By marketing lots of properties at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

 

Certain properties would possibly require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
