Needing to avoid realtor commissions and still sell a Sugar Land house…. we can help!

 

In order to help you realize your end goal of selling your property or home, we will work with a real estate broker to get the job done for you.

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 your house for what’s left on the mortgage, then you will need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of folks , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell a property. That’s a lot of money… especially if you are in an unusual 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.

There are several tricks to avoid paying high commissions on a sale.

Before we get going, there’s one thing you have to know.

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

 

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 property.

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

 

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

 

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

 

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 price your property or home – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you are doing the work of one realtor, you could expect to save that money.

Many times in Sugar Land, 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 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 consider offering 2.5% to real estate professionals who will bring their clients to show your house. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house 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 can expect to cut your pool of prospective buyers to just about nothing.

 

, of transactions occur through the MLS – that is the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Sugar Land 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 Sugar Land, there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a 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 property.

 

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

Many of the important real estate websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your house in Sugar Land 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 house.

 

Marketing is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Sugar Land can be a wonderful way to sell property, and many times they are a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

To successfully sell your house 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 web-sites where you can post information. But typically just putting up advertisements and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property doesn’t 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 property. By marketing lots of properties at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

 

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 property has to be just right.
