Looking to avoid real estate broker commissions and still sell that Raleigh house…. Glymph Properties can help!

 

Glymph Properties aims to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with brokers, but we will if it’s required.

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.

 

The art and science to avoiding those annoying realtor commissions.

First, there is an irritating custom that you’ve gotta know 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 professional.

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 lose cash.

 

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

In truth, it goes against reason – it’s just what’s commonly done.

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

 

First, take into account the commissions paid when you’re looking at the comparable sales. If the properties 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’re doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to save that money.

Many times in Raleigh , buyers who are not represented by a buyers 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 real estate brokers bring their clients to see your property. 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 include it, you’ll cut your pool of prospective buyers to almost nothing.

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the real estate brokers in Raleigh 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 Raleigh , 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 bucks and you only pay a commission if the sale closes.

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your home to a very wide 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 property in Raleigh 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.

Marketing is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Raleigh can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they are a complete waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – sometimes 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 are a lot of free websites where you can post information. But typically just putting up ads and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house doesn’t appeal to the standard home purchaser.

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 advertising lots of houses at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

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