 Is it straightforward to get rid of my Midland property without a broker?

 

If you are attempting to sell your home or investment property in Midland without using a real estate broker, Glymph Properties can help.

Glymph Properties aims to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with 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 succeed in selling the property for what you owe, then you will need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell their property. That’s 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 and science to avoiding those annoying realtor commissions.

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

In most cases in Texas half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s real estate professional.

Think about it…. how does that make sense?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.

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

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

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

 

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

 

Please don’t under price 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 Midland, buyers who aren’t 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 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 real estate professionals who will bring their clients to show your property or home. 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 pay it, you are going to cut your pool of prospective buyers to just about nothing.

 

, of transactions happen through the MLS – that is the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Midland 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 Midland, 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 a commission if the sale closes.

Compared to 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 search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your property in Midland 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’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. Occasionally open houses in Midland can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. It’s 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 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 web sites where you can post information. But typically just putting up advertisements and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house does not appeal to the standard home shopper.

 

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 advertising lots of houses 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.
