 I really, really don't want to pay a realtor... Is it still feasible to get rid of my Allen property? - we buy any house

Glymph Properties can easily help if you want to get rid of a house or investment property in Allen without an agent.

Our primary goal is 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 will need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people simply cannot afford to pay to sell a house. That is a ton 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 bothersome realtor commissions.

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

 

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

 

Did that little tid-bit register… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .Mull it over, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. In essence, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose money.

 

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

 

In all honesty, it goes against reason – it is just what’s normally done.

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

First, remember to include 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.

Never under price your property or home – be aware that an informed buyer could possibly expect to have a discount too. If you are doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to keep that money.

In many instances in Allen, 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 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 choose to consider offering 2.5% to have brokers bring their clients to check out your property or home. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your house including that commission, you can always hammer out a far better deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.

 

Now, if you really don’t like the idea of paying the buyer’s agent commission and decide not to offer to pay it, you are going to cut your pool of prospective buyers to virtually nothing.

 

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the real estate agents in Allen use to obtain 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 or home on the MLS. Now in Allen, there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Usually, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay a commission if the sale closes.

 

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your property or home to the largest audience.

 

Each of the key real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. acquire data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your house in Allen to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to boost 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.

 

Advertising and marketing could be a gamble. At times open houses in Allen can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and many times they don’t.

To efficiently sell your home all on your own, you have to market it well.

Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate a number of calls, and there’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But generally just posting advertisements and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house does not appeal to the ordinary home shopper.

In theory, real estate professionals charge significant commissions because they have to spend a whole lot of money up front to market 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 houses.

 

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