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 succeed in selling your property for your balance, then you’ll need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. Many people , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell a property. That is definitely 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 several ways to avoid paying high commissions in a sale.
Before we get going, there’s one thing you have to know.
In most real estate transactions in Plano , generally 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 .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.
How in the world does it make sense for you to do that?
In truth, it defies reason – it is just what is commonly done in most cases.
You can use that to your advantage in a number of ways.
First, take into account the commissions paid when you are looking at the comparable sales. If the houses similar to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.
Please don’t under value your house – 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 keep that money.
Many times in Plano , buyers who aren’t 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 buyer’s agents who will bring their clients to see your property or home. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.
On the contrary, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Plano .
, of transactions take place through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Plano 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 property or home on the MLS. Now in Plano , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay a commission if you sale your house.
Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your home to the largest 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 Plano 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 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 property.
Advertising is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Plano can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they are a complete waste of time. It is the exact same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time they work, and oftentimes they don’t.
To effectively sell your house 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’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But typically just posting advertisements and hosting 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 house. 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.
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 property has to be just right.
