 Searching to sell a St. Paul house without having a realtor?

 

If you are wanting to sell any house or investment property in St. Paul without using a real estate agent, we can help.

Though we do cooperate with real estate agents, most of the time it is best to avoid paying realtors to be in the middle.

 

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

 

There are a couple of ways to avoid paying high commissions in your sale.

First, there is a tricky custom that you’ve gotta know about.

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

 

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 lower the sales price of your house.

 

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

In truth, it contradicts reason – it is just what is commonly done.

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

First, take into account the commissions paid when you are looking at local comparable sales. If the houses 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 agent, you can expect to keep that money.

Many times in St. Paul , buyers who aren’t represented by an agent won’t 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 have agents bring their clients to walk your property or home. 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.

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.

– that is of transactions take place through the MLS – that’s the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in St. Paul 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 St. Paul , 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 you sale your home.

 

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way 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 listing in St. Paul 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’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 house.

Marketing is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in St. Paul can be a wonderful way to sell a property, and many times they are a complete waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, 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 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 advertisements and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property 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 promoting lots of properties at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

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