Needing to avoid real estate agent commissions and still sell a Baltimore house…. we can help!

Although we do cooperate with brokers, most times we endorse that you refrain from paying someone to be in the midst.

I mean really…. who wants to give up 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 is left on the mortgage, then you need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of folks aren’t able to afford to pay to get rid of a property. That’s definitely a ton of money… especially if you are in an abnormal 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.

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

In most real estate transactions in Baltimore , ordinarily half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to pay for the buyer’s broker.

 

Think about it…. how much sense does that make?Mull it over, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. In essence, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose cash.

Why should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?

In all honesty, it goes against reason – it’s just what is normally done.

 

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

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

Never under value your property or home – be aware that an informed buyer could possibly expect to have a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one agent, you should expect to save that money.

 

In many instances in Baltimore , 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 do not remind them if you do not want to pay them. Just don’t be surprised if it comes up during the negotiation.

You may choose to consider offering 2.5% to real estate brokers who will bring their clients to show your property or home. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your house including that commission, you can always hammer out a far better deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.

 

Now, if you really don’t like the idea of paying the buyer’s agent fee and decide not to offer to pay it, you may cut your pool of prospective buyers to just about nothing.

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate agents in Baltimore use to obtain information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.

At one time, you had to pay a full commission to get your property or home on the MLS. Now in Baltimore , there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Usually, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if you sale your house.

 

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your property or home to the largest audience.

Each of the key real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. acquire data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your house in Baltimore to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to boost 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 could be a gamble. At times open houses in Baltimore can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and many times they don’t.

To efficiently sell your home all on your own, you have to advertise it well.

Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate a number of calls, and there are a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But generally just putting up advertisements and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property does not appeal to the ordinary home shopper.

In theory, real estate professionals charge significant commissions because they have to spend a whole lot of money up front to market your home. By promoting lots of properties at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

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