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 the house for your balance, then you 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 or home. 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 bothersome realtor commissions.
Before we get going, there’s one basic real estate custom you have to know about.
In most cases in Indiana 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s realtor.
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 should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?
In truth, it goes against logic – it is just what is commonly done.
You can use that to your advantage in a few ways.
First, take into account the commissions paid when you are looking at local comparable sales. If the properties similar 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’re doing the work of one realtor, you could expect to save that money.
Many times in Fort Wayne , 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 real estate professionals who will bring their clients to show your house. Of course, 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.
On the contrary, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Fort Wayne .
Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Fort Wayne 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 or home on the MLS. Now in Fort Wayne , 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 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 Fort Wayne 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 those 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. Occasionally open houses in Fort Wayne can be a wonderful way to sell a property, and many times they are a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, FSBO (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’s a lot of free websites where you can post information. But typically just posting flyers and having 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 property. 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.
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.
