 Is it feasible to get rid of my Garland home without a realtor?

If you happen to be attempting to sell your own property or investment property in Garland without using a real estate broker, we can help.

In order to help you realize your objective of getting rid of your property or home, we will work with a broker to get the job done for you.

 

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a property in a commission is a bunch of money. In certain situations, brokers and real estate agents can be very useful and earn their commission. Not always.

 

The art and science to avoiding those bothersome realtor commissions.

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

In most sales in Garland , approximately 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 lower the sales price of your house.

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

In truth, it contradicts reason – it’s just what is commonly done in most cases.

 

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

First, remember to include the commissions paid when you’re looking at the comparable sales. If the properties similar 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’re doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to save that money.

Many times in Garland , 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 do not remind them if you do not 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 show your property. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

 

Now, if you really don’t like the idea of paying the buyer’s agent commission and decide not to offer to include it, you may 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 brokers in Garland 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 Garland , 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 a commission if the sale closes.

 

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

 

Many of the important real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your house in Garland 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 property.

Marketing is really a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Garland can be a wonderful way to sell property, and many times they are a complete waste of time. It is the exact same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, FSBO (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 flyers and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house 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 house. By advertising lots of houses at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

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