Is it possible to sell my San Jose property without a real estate agent?

Looking to avoid real estate agent commissions and still sell your San Jose house…. Glymph Properties can help!

 

We aim 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 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 accomplish your goal of selling your property for your balance, then you’ll need to write a check for 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 a property. That is a ton of money… especially if you are in an unusual 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.

 

There are several tricks to avoid paying high commissions on a sale.

First, there’s an irritating custom that you have to hear about.

 

In most cases in California half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s realtor.

 

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.

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

In truth, it defies logic – it’s just what’s commonly 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 are looking at local comparable sales. If the properties comparable to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

 

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

 

Many times in San Jose , 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 may consider offering 2.5% to realtors who will bring their clients to show your house. Sure, it is 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 for a buyer’s agent and decide not to offer to include it, you’ll cut your pool of prospective buyers to next to nothing.

 

, of transactions happen through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate brokers in San Jose 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 San Jose , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred dollars 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 the largest 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 San Jose to the MLS, information on your property will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got 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. At times open houses in San Jose can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

 

To efficiently sell your home 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 web-sites where you can post information. But typically just putting up advertisements and having an open house isn’t nearly 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 property. By promoting lots of properties at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

Selling properties 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 home has to be just right.
