 I really, really don't want to use a real estate broker... Is it still possible to sell a Henderson house?

If you are wanting to get rid of your house or investment property in Henderson without using a broker, we can help.

 

In an attempt 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 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 what is left on the mortgage, then you need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. Some people are unable to afford the costs of selling a house. That’s a ton 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.

Before we get going, there’s one thing you have to know.

In most house sales in Henderson , ordinarily half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to pay for 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 property.

How in the world does it make sense for you to do that?

 

Seriously, it goes against logic – it is just what is traditionally done in most cases.

 

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

First, remember to include 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.

 

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

Most of the time in Henderson , buyers who are not represented by a buyers 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 might want to consider offering 2.5% to have real estate agents bring their clients to walk your property or home. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a real estate agent.

Having said that, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Henderson .

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

Not so long ago, you had to pay a full commission to get your house on the MLS. Now in Henderson , there are a few agents who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay a commission if you sale your property.

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

Most of the big real estate websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your property in Henderson 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.

 

Advertising and marketing can be a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Henderson can be a good way to sell a house, and sometimes they are a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – sometimes they work, and quite often they don’t.

 

To efficiently sell your home without any help, you have to market it well.

Positioning fliers and signs around your neighborhood can generate a number of calls, and there are a lot of free websites where you can post information. But usually just posting flyers and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property doesn’t appeal to the everyday home buyer.

In theory, real estate brokers charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton 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.

 

Some properties may require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
