 Seeking to sell a Greensboro house without an agent?

We will help if you need to sell a house or investment property in Greensboro without an agent.

Our primary goal is to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with realtors, but we will if need be.

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

There are a number of tricks to avoid paying high commissions on your sale.

First, there is an irritating custom that you’ve gotta hear about.

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

Did you get that… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .Give it a second- let it really sink in, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. Simply, 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?

Seriously, it contradicts reason – it’s just what’s traditionally 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 the comparable sales. If the properties similar to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

Be careful, don’t under price your property – be aware that an experienced buyer will probably expect to get a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one agent, you could expect to save that money.

Most of the time in Greensboro , 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 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 buyer’s agents who will bring their clients to show your house. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a real estate agent.

 

On the contrary, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Greensboro .

 

90 % of transactions take place through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Greensboro use to find 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 Greensboro , there are a few brokers who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay commission if you sale your home.

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your home to a very wide audience.

 

Most of the big real estate search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your listing in Greensboro to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major online websites within days.

Each of these sites sells ads. They have packages that let you pay to greatly enhance 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 can be a gamble. At times open houses in Greensboro can be a good way to sell a property, and at times they are a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – sometimes they work, and quite often they don’t.

 

To efficiently sell your home without any help, you have to market it well.

Putting fliers and signs around your area can generate a few calls, and there are a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But usually just posting flyers and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house does not appeal to the everyday home shopper.

In theory, realtors charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to promote your home. By marketing lots of properties at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

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