If you happen to be planning to get rid of your own property or investment property in Stockton without using a realtor, Glymph Properties can help.

 

In an attempt to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with realtors, but we will if it’s required.

 

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 your house for your balance, then you will need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people can not afford the costs of selling a property. That is a lot of money… especially if you are in an irregular 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 a few tricks to avoid paying high commissions in a sale.

First, there’s an irritating custom that you’ve gotta know about.

In most cases in California 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s real estate broker.

 

Did that little tid-bit register… 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 should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?

 

Seriously, it defies reason – it’s just what’s traditionally done.

 

Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.

First, factor in 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.

 

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

Most of the time in Stockton , buyers who are not 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 do not want to pay them. Just don’t be surprised if it comes up during the negotiation.

 

You might want to consider offering 2.5% to buyer’s agents who will bring their clients to show your property. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always negotiate a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without an 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 will cut your pool of prospective buyers to next to nothing.

 

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It is the main database that all the real estate agents in Stockton 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 house on the MLS. Now in Stockton , there are a few agents who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay commission if the sale closes.

 

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

Most of the big real estate search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are good that when you submit your house in Stockton 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 house.

 

Marketing can be a gamble. At times open houses in Stockton can be a good way to sell a property, and many times they’re a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – occasionally they work, and quite often they don’t.

To effectively sell your property without any help, you have to market it well.

Placing fliers and signs around your neighborhood can generate a handful of calls, and there are a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But usually just posting ads and having an open house is not enough if your house does not appeal to the everyday home buyer.

 

In theory, real estate brokers charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to publicize your property. 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 would possibly require thousands of dollars in advertising expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
