Is it feasible to sell your Long Beach home without a real estate agent?

 

We will buy your Long Beach home without charging real estate agent commissions.

Although we do cooperate with real estate agents, sometimes it’s best to keep clear of paying real estate agents to be in the middle.

 

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

The art to avoiding those irritating realtor commissions.

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

 

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

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 money.

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

 

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

 

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

 

First, take into account the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at the comparable sales. If the houses comparable to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

 

Please don’t under price your property – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one realtor, you could expect to save that money.

Many times in Long Beach , buyers who aren’t represented by an 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 real estate professionals who will bring their clients to see your property or home. Sure, it’s 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.

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

90 % of transactions happen through the MLS – that’s the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Long Beach 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 house on the MLS. Now in Long Beach , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay a commission if you sale your home.

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

 

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

 

Advertising and marketing is really a gamble. At times open houses in Long Beach can be a wonderful way to sell a property, and many times they are a waste of time. It is the exact same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

 

To effectively sell your house 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’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But typically just putting up ads and having an open house is not enough if your property does not 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 marketing lots of houses at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

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