 Is it easy to get rid of my Cleveland home without a real estate broker?

 

Glymph Properties will definitely buy your Cleveland home without charging realtor commissions.

Glymph Properties aims to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with real estate agents, 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 a house for what’s left on the mortgage, then you’ll need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. Many people , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell their property or home. That’s 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 to avoiding those pesky realtor commissions.

First, there’s a tricky custom that you’ve gotta hear about.

 

In most house sales in Cleveland , roughly 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?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.

 

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

 

In truth, it goes against logic – it’s just what is commonly done.

You can use that to your advantage in a few ways.

First, factor in the commissions paid when you are looking at the comparable sales. If the properties comparable to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

 

Please don’t under value your house – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you are doing the work of one agent, you could expect to keep that money.

 

Many times in Cleveland , buyers who aren’t represented by a buyers 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 realtors who will bring their clients to show your property or home. Of course, it is a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

 

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 Cleveland .

– that’s of transactions happen through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate brokers in Cleveland 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 Cleveland , 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 bucks and you only pay commission if you sale your home.

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your home to a very wide audience.

Many of the important real estate websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your listing in Cleveland to the MLS, information on your property 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 property.

 

Advertising and marketing is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Cleveland can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. It is the exact same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

 

To effectively sell your property 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 posting ads and hosting an open house is not enough if your property 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 house has to be just right.
