Looking to avoid real estate broker commissions and still sell your Baltimore house…. we can help!

 

In order to help you fulfill your target of getting rid of your property, we will work with anyone to get the job done for you.

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a property in a commission is a bunch 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 pesky realtor commissions.

First, there’s 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.

 

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 lose money.

 

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

Seriously, it defies logic – it is just what is traditionally done in most cases.

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

 

First, remember to consider the commissions paid when you’re looking at the comparable sales. If the houses 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 should expect to keep that money.

Most of the time 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 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 real estate professionals who will bring their clients to show your property or home. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always work out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a real estate agent.

 

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

 

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

 

Once upon a time, you had to pay a full commission to get your property on the MLS. Now in Baltimore , there are a few agents who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay a commission if the sale closes.

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

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

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got 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 house.

 

Advertising can be a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Baltimore can be a good way to sell property, and from time to time they’re a 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 quite often they don’t.

 

To efficiently sell your property without any help, you have to advertise it well.

Placing fliers and signs around your community can generate a handful of calls, and there’s a lot of free websites where you can post information. But usually just posting ads and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house doesn’t appeal to the everyday home shopper.

 

In theory, real estate brokers charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to market your property. 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 houses.

 

Selling houses 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 house has to be just right.
